Noisey presents: Welcome to Chiraq – Episodes 3 – 6 (Clips)
Ich hoffe, Ihr habt die ersten beiden Episoden von „Welcome to Chiraq“, der Noisey-Doku über die Gangkriminalität in Chicago, seinerzeit gesehen. Falls nicht: bitte holt das unbedingt nach, im Anschluss könnt Ihr dann direkt die vier neuen Folgen hier unten gucken. In den neuen Episoden gibt es wieder eine Menge Eindrücke aus der lokalen HipHop-Szene zu sehen, u.a. sind Acts wie Chief Keef, French Montana, Juicy J, Big Sean, Pusha T oder Young Chop zu sehen. HipHop, Gangs, Rassismus, Beatz – das volle Programm aus Chiraq:
In the third episode of Noisey’s Chiraq, we pick up where we left off in Englewood, and get a taste of the new music coming from the area. Then we jump back across the country and join Chief Keef, Fredo Santana, and others wandering around Times Square. They say what’s up to Alien and Predator before heading backstage for some free styling as they prepare for a show.
In the fourth episode of Noisey’s Chiraq, we catch up extensively with Lil Durk, the next superstar of the Drill scene and go to a show with fellow 300 / OTF member Lil Reese. It’s the night of Lollapalooza, but that doesn’t matter because inside and outside the venue, the crowd is packed to the walls. Afterwards, we roll through the South Side of Chicago with Durk and meet his family, learning about the life from which he came, and why he „terrifies the city.“
„In the fifth episode of Chiraq, we step outside of drill music and catch up with Chicago rapper Vic Mensa and the rest of his SAVEMONEY crew. They spend the day gathering cash to bail fellow rapper Joey Purp out of jail, and on the way we chat about the city’s scene. Vic doesn’t associate himself with the Chiraq lifestyle because he feels it’s too negative, but understands the struggles of those who come from that part of the city. He’s also, surprisingly, a really big fan of Rage Against the Machine.“
„In Episode Six of Noisey Chiraq, we tag along with rising super-producer Young Chop, who despite being the most successful beatmaker to emerge from the Chicago rap scene, still doesn’t have his drivers license (his mom drives him around). Song-maker for artists like Chief Keef, French Montana, Juicy J, Big Sean and Pusha T, Chop visits Chicago’s Bean for the first time ever and we find out the extent of racial segregation in the city.“
