It's a new wave of artists coming up on the rise and the homie SmokeBaby just happens to be one of them. Today, the Chicago rapper releases his brand new video for "FNP (Feel No Pain)." It's taken from his upcoming EP called Smokeland and it's a dope animated visual created by Ashtyn Taylor of ATLfilms and it's written and produced by DeAndre Brooks aka SmokeBaby. Check out his words.
"The video Feel No Pain meaning is deeper than the video itself. The video was made for smoking and comedy purposes; but the overall background behind it basically shows and talks about the reality of money, power and how it can make you feel pain. In other words, Feel No Pain is an expression for smoking so much weed I can't feel the pain - I'm too high."

Kanye West Brings Out Chicago for Sunday Service

Name someone other than Kanye West that can bring out the Chi for Sunday Service on a rainy day?
This morning, Ye stopped in his hometown for a free sold-out show. It was located at Huntington's Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island and it was filled with fans of all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
Throughout the event, the gospel choir kept the crowd on their feet, in high spirit, before the Yeezus rapper made his entrance to perform his song, "Jesus Walk." Chicago's own Chance The Rapper was also in attendance and he added his contribution by performing his verse to Ye's "Ultralight Beam."
I'm telling you, Kanye West's Sunday Service was a great experience and I'm glad I got the chance and opportunity to enjoy it. 
UPDATE: After finishing his morning set at Northerly Island, Kanye West took his Sunday Service celebration to Fellowship Church for the afterparty. Watch videos below and share your comments.
