Chicago’s Add-2 caught our attention a few years back with the song “Luxury” from his Okayplayer and 2Dopeboyz-backed mixtape, Tale of Two’s City Vol. 3: The Rise & Fall with a very dope, classic Chi-town inspired flow a la Lupe on “Go Go Gadget Flow” or Twista/Do Or Die/Crucial Conflict aka some great rapping with a rare flow.  That was just the tip of the iceberg though, we listened more and found out Add’s got a variety of top notch styles and great songs, racking up co-signs from a lot more than just us, with everyone from Common to Kendrick Lamar to the Roots to 9th Wonder (check out their collabs, “Going, Going Gone” and “Super-Genius”) praising his music.

.:Download Actual Proof – Super Genius ft. Cutlass Reid, Skewby, Naledge, Add-2, Kendrick Lamar, Brittany Street, The Kid Daytona & Laws (Prod. 9th Wonder):.

Since then, Add-2’s released three more standout projects, Tale Of Two’s City Vol. 4: Better Days w/Okayplayer & 2Dopeboyz, Save Our Souls w/LRG and One Missed Call, establishing himself as one of the best new rappers in a city known for exceptional rappers.  With songs ranging from the controversial “Modern Day Coons” to straight up jams like “One Of Dem Girls” to potent lyrical exercises like “Bring Em Out”, his latest project, Save Our Souls, is one of our favorites to drop this year, and we think you’ll dig it as well.
