I keep this blog as much for myself as for others. I imagine many years from now I might look back and wonder why I hadn't posted any thoughts about music in February 2013. There could be a few reasons. One is that I was posting elsewhere. Here are two pieces about hip-hop in Chicago that I posted to Passion of the Weiss this month. One is about Chance the Rapper. The other: Rockie Fresh. I plan to continue writing for the site in the future.
