Hey all, I wanted to share a lesser-known neighborhood festival that will be happening in Chicago this summer, August 25th, to be exact. It's called Summer Fest West, and will take place at Marshall High School at Kedzie and Jackson.
One thing I think is really cool is that Do or Die will be performing. They were a local sensation very briefly in Chicago when I was a teenager. Check out their video in this hyperlink. It just oozes mid-90s West Side attitude, right down to the tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement that the group has no money. This goes against the flaunting of riches prevalent in a lot of rap music of the era.
