A few months ago Chicago emcee Bekoe dropped a dope EP in Sumthn Diffrnt which has been doing quiet well. It’s available on all platforms so hop on that. He recently dropped off a loosie freestyle that once again proves he can rap his ass off. It’s a remix to the J. Cole song (that has been talked about at length as I’m sure you know.) He pokes fun and disses the entire XXL Freshman Class which is bold, but works well.
Side note: He is also the CEO/founder of influential Chicago website Illanoize.
He’s been doing some shows and sources tell me he is a great performer. Keep up with dude on SoundCloud and look out for him in 2017.
