FFD Premiere: Marko Stat$ – Pedal To The Medal (New Track)

flowsfordays was launched in late 2016, and since the site’s inception Marko Stat$ has never stopped showing up on our pages. He’s remained an integral part of the more conscious Chicago hip hop community – and one of the best to ever do it. We’ve hosted premiere’s from Marko before, but it has been awhile since I’ve truly been back on the blog tip, making … Continue reading FFD Premiere: Marko Stat$ – Pedal To The Medal (New Track)

Marko Stat$, Aced Spade, & Their Squad Star In New Music Video ‘WADDUP’

Last year Marko Stat$ dropped his much anticipated full length Bee-4 I Fly Away. The success of the project resulted in accolades, respect, and a number of performances. I knew he had it in him from the jump as I interviewed him back in 2016. His right hand man Aced Space handled the production on the LP, and finally got the attention he’s always deserved. We also saw … Continue reading Marko Stat$, Aced Spade, & Their Squad Star In New Music Video ‘WADDUP’

Marko Stat$ – Bee-4 I Fly Away (New Project + Review)

Ahh! It’s finally here!

A year end list, interview and feature on our compilation tape later, we now have his newest project Bee-4 I Fly Away. On a personal note, I have been waiting for a full length from Marko since … Continue reading Marko Stat$ – Bee-4 I Fly Away (New Project + Review)

flowsfordays Presents: Riptide Vol. 1

I can’t believe it’s here – our first compilation tape. Since the inception of flowsfordays I’ve wanted to put out a project like this. I wanted to develop relationships with artists first, and then begin to link with them on collaborations. Riptide Vol. 1 is a very personal project to me. Each artist featured has made an impact on my life in some way. Many … Continue reading flowsfordays Presents: Riptide Vol. 1

Marko Stat$ + Aced Spade – Jubilation (New Track)

If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you’ll know we are HUGE fans of rapper Marko Stat$ and super producer Aced Spade. Both are some of the brightest underground stars in hip hop, period.

He’s been working with Aced Spade since the jump, and their chemistry is amazing. … Continue reading Marko Stat$ + Aced Spade – Jubilation (New Track)

Marko Stat$ JUST hit me up about a new tune he recently put out. I was all over it – as usual. The always working duo of Marko + producer Aced Spade have come together for a space age and soulful cut titled Love It. This seems to be a loosie for now, but let’s hope more is in the works. I’ve been wanting a full project … Continue reading Marko Stat$ + Aced Spade – Love It (New Track)

Marko Stat$ – Everybody Gotta Fly (Video)

Good friend and fellow flowsfordays interviewee Marko Stat$ absolutely killed this freestyle and music video. Since J. Cole’s Everybody Dies dropped, rappers have been attempting to go in on the instrumental…some successfully, some not so much. This is the first time I’ve seen an artist absolutely body the beat and at the very least match Cole’s viral visual. By the way – if you want to … Continue reading Marko Stat$ – Everybody Gotta Fly (Video)

Marko Stat$ Has Made His Mark In Chicago…Now He’s Ready To Go Global (Exclusive Interview)

I’ve seen the growth of Chicago’s underground movement, especially in the last few months. It’s always been pretty strong, but more and more artists have been racking up SoundCloud plays across the city’s eclectic neighborhoods. There’s no way you can hear/see all the music/videos + tapes hitting the web everyday, but blogs help. One cat that I’ve been noticing for quiet some time is Marko … Continue reading Marko Stat$ Has Made His Mark In Chicago…Now He’s Ready To Go Global (Exclusive Interview)
