NONAME GYPSY X CHELSEA REJECT X SABA X PHOELIX – COUNTERFEIT (PRODUCED BY PHEOLIX AND SABA)
119 is a Chicago collective of creative minds united by a common goal: spread and support art in its various forms in particular they focus their attention on music counting on a solid team of promoters for events , video producers , photographers and designers. This little presentation serves to introduce to y’all the forthcoming hip-hop compilation entitled Countdown 2 Midnight distributed by 119, which described it as :
An allegory to the nuclear doomsday clock fully intact, but our chosen metaphor is for all artists everywhere. When your own doomsday clock hits midnight, what will you have left behind, and what will you do next for your world?
Well, we’d like to invite you to listen to the second single from Countdown 2 Midnight (which will boast appearances from Kaytranada,Via Rosa,Ravyn Lenae, the MINDA among others) called Counterfeit masterfully performed by three rising stars of the Chi-Town hip-hop scene and a bright talent from Brooklyn. We’re talking about NoName Gypsy (who recently hit the international scene with her superb project Telefone) , Aurora-bred hip-hop producer/vocalist Phoelix (also 1/2 of MDMC), rapper/producer SABA (who recently delighted our ears with the dope album Bucket List Project) and young femcee from Brooklyn Chelsea Reject.
Damn, the joint sounds supa-cool, perfect in all its aspects from the NoName hooks to the so-fucking-flawless production handled by Phoelix and SABA. Ms Reject pierces our mind with her fast-paced rhymes.
