The Cook County Sheriff's Office in Illinois says Kevin appeared in court Wednesday and pled guilty to his original charge of felony gun possession. Remember, the outstanding weapons-related warrant popped up the same day he completed his sentence in Florida for kicking a woman in the face at one of his shows. The warrant was issued because Kevin failed to appear in court for the 2013 gun case. We're told Kevin, who has been in jail since March 30, will be transferred to the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Chicago has seen and heard a lot of new faces and voices throughout its emerges on the indie and national scene these last few years. This spring the Windy City introduces us to another budding artist who seems to have made a nice buzz for himself killing local events throughout the showcase circuits this last year or two. His debut project containing already leaked singles "Loud" & "FWM" both show a touch of what makes Magikk special among his peers and other performers. 13 tracks deep, the project stands out because of its versatile concepts and the raspy delivery that makes every song turn catchy. With a pot luck of producers handling the production "All Hail Dibiase" is slated for release on all major mixtape platforms.
Solo’s back at it again with the second installment to his ‘ZeekosWay’ mixtape series. In contrast to the first installment, he takes the road less traveled, and passionately gives fans a vivid tour of his past experiences. He remains true to his melodic rap style, yet he takes it to higher musical heights, as he’s more explicit and hardcore than what fans are used to. Featuring stand out records such as "All That S**t, Aint Got Time, & Any Kind Of Way" this project holds its on.
