Roy Kinsey’s latest single “Fetish” explores the overlapping experiences of both racism and sexuality that he has dealt with throughout his life.

The new Single is a reminder that life is short, and we can’t forget to live joyfully and purposefully.

Chicago genre-fluid, Alternative Hip Hop artist is sending positive waves on new Single.

Ness Heads is the name of the genre-blending project of Vanessa Ortiz whose mix of Electronic, Pop and Hip Hop has been catching attention in Chicago and beyond.

Ness grew up on the West Side and attributes the noise, the backyard parties and the overall chaos of the area to shaping her into an artist she is today. Her latest Single “Paper Town” explores a softer, dreamy side of the rising MC, and features gliding vocal melodies over acoustic guitar and subdued beats. Jill Hopkins spoke with Ness about her Chicago upbringing and eclectic sound.
