NEW FEATURE ALERT! Yes, we’ve paired with Noisey + Vice to bring you an exciting new mixtape feature: Music To Fake Shore Driveby. The first installment is now upon us. We’ll let the good people at Noisey explain further:

We love rap music. We love Chicago. We love rap music that comes from Chicago. And one of the definitive voices of the Chicago hip-hop scene is Fake Shore Drive, a local website that’s been putting Midwest talent on since 2007. If you haven’t been reading FSD, you’ve been listening to its influence. The site has helped pretty much every significant Chi rapper over the past few years, including Chance the Rapper, Chief Keef, Lil Durk, Lil Reese, King Louie, Vic Mensa, Tree, Lil Herb, Lil Bibby, and more.

We spend a lot of time covering the scene in Chicago—our documentary Chiraq illustrated the rise of drill music and the socioeconomic issues the city faces through segregation, violence, and crime, and we’re following up-and-comers like Alex Wiley, Dreezy, and Tink—but we recognize that there’s more to the city’s music scene than we can always keep up with. Today, we’re happy to launch Music to Fake Shore Driveby, a recurring column by Andrew Barber and Ty Howard over at Fake Shore Drive. These guys will be curating mixtapes of Midwest artists for your listening pleasure. Below is volume one, with blurbs on each track.

Hit the jump to check out the mix, and head over to Noisey for more info on the tracks included in the Volume One.
