Video: BJ The Chicago Kid feat. Schoolboy Q – ‘It’s True’

BJ The Chicago Kid It's True

Known and loved for his gritty, soulful vocals BJ the Chicago Kid flexes his rap skills to get a strong message across on his new song “It’s True” featuring Schoolboy Q. The two artists reunite since topping the charts with Q’s hit single “Studio,” which recently received a Grammy nomination for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.

The song was initially a hidden track on BJ’s new EP The M.A.F.E. Project, however demand for the track has been so high, it has resulted in organic radio spins from outlets like SiriusXM. On the song BJ delivers heartfelt and emotive lyrics about how delicate life can be, through a chopped-and- screwed spoken word style.

“I was initially very nervous playing the track for SchoolBoy Q,” BJ told The FADER. “This track is something that is very personal to me. It is a PSA. Its mission is to let people know that you do not have to be involved in gang like activity to be affected by it, to be hurt or killed by it. This life is real and can hurt the most innocent of people. When SchoolBoy heard it for the first time he loved it. When he got in the booth we created magic once again.”

Now, officially releasing the song as a single, the duo bring the record to life with a stunning visual set in Chicago, showing some of BJ’s stomping grounds and even the famed Harold’s Chicken Shack.

New Music: Jodeci feat. B.o.B – Nobody Wins


It’s been almost two decades since the bad boys of R&B brought us new music, but as we all know 2014 has brought out many surprises. Returning to the scene at this year’s Soul Train Awards, ’90s supergroup Jodeci left fans with much anticipation when they performed their first comeback single “Nobody Wins” featuring B.o.B.

Now moving things a little further, the once raunchy lyric producing group has finally released the official audio with a lyric video for the anti-domestic violence single. If you’re new to the sounds of the quarrelsome quartet, Jodeci is comprised of brothers, Joel (JoJo) and Cedric (K-Ci) Hailey, DeVante Swing, and Dalvin (Mr. Dalvin) DeGrate. The video, which follows the different scenarios of domestic violence, urges watchers to take a stand against it and features the number for those to call if needed.

The group, which has paved the way for many of today’s R&B superstars, is in the process of working on their first album since 1995’s The Show, The After-Party, The Hotel, and will be working with top producers such as Timbaland.

“We’ve recorded hundreds of songs, even if it’s bits and pieces and fragments of songs that we could probably live off of for the rest of our lives,” Mr. Dalvin explained to RollingStone Magazine. “But when creating this album, we chose a body of work that really represents us as a group and represents what people are expecting to hear from Jodeci as a group. People will be pleasantly surprised.”

In regards to their new single, K-Ci shared: “We aren’t immune to issues that are important in our community. Domestic violence has always been an issue in relationships, but lately it’s been brought to the front of our community consciousness.”

Take a look at the lyric video for “Nobody Wins” below… What do you think?
