    Friday, October 24, 2014

15 CENTS: 19th Letter

As of late, the nation’s eyes have been fixed on Chicago for both positive and negative reasons, most notably the Drill music scene (Chief Keef, King Louie) and the intense gang violence it was born from.  The real question is, what will the city and its inhabitants do with all of this attention.  A few […]
