Killer track representing the City of Wind by MASS HYSTERIA - CHICAGO
The much too underrated Chicago-based rap duo Mass Hysteria bring us another solid effort off their soon to be released album. The track entitled "Chicago" is produced by SC & Mike Treese. It samples Graham Nash's 1971 song "Chicago: We Can Change the World" about the infamous Chicago Seven trial.
"They call it Windy City not cause it's breezy here / They call it that cause the politicians are sleezy here." Mass Hysteria puts up a mirror to the darkness and scandal that has gone hand in hand with the incomparable Windy City: from Capone to the Chicago Seven trial to police corruption, gentrification to governors Blagojevich and Ryan. The sample, the beat, lyrical content -- a perfect marriage. The song will also be used by the MUL crew for their new grafitti video coming out later this month! Until then download the song and witness the beauty that can come from the darkest places."
