The talent emerging from the Chicago hip-hop scene is really just never ending at this point and believe me when I tell you that I am FAR from complaining. Taylor Bennett, who made his first GMAD appearance back in October with his mixtape “The Taylor Bennett Show”, now brings us a brand new track titled “Heartbreaker” which comes off of his upcoming project “Mainstream Music”. Bennett has been on my radar for quite some time now and from what I’ve witnessed in the past few months he’s really building a solid fan base day by day which is super important. On top of consistently dropping dope tracks, attending high school, and interacting with fans daily, Bennett actually just recently sold out his first ever headlining show which is scheduled to take place on December 20th at Reggie’s Rock Club in Chicago and that’s definitely a huge milestone in his career. Grab the free download below, let us know what you think, and don’t forget to show Taylor some love on his Twitter page. Enjoy!

“Cuz i’m fiercer now, cuz I got a job, an education, and someone at home waiting for me, God Damn It” is the catchy spoken hook thats been stuck in my head from this the new collab between Drums of Death, Azealia Banks, and Franklin Fuentes. I am a fan of what Azealia Banks is doing for females in hip-hop, but it’s tough to find the right songs that fit GMAD. If you are unfamiliar with her, check out her hit Jumanji which has a free download and the collab below. Enjoy!
