Since long before he was a Jamla artist, Add-2 has been grinding, part of the independent renaissance coming from Chicago, Illinois since the mid-2000s and before. Now teaming with The Away Team/Soul Council’s Khrysis, Add is reaching a higher plateau with an expanding audience.

Hurt and disgusted by the violence and crime plaguing his city, Add-2 made “Death Of Chicago.” The verses can rattle any listener’s core, while the video shows those hurts and affected by the senseless few. Victims, survivors, and those neighborhoods impaired by the violence are featured as Add-2 delivers a verse as potent and topical as any. Khrysis’ beat is so soulful, and fits nicely into Chi-Town’s own storied sound. This is from Between Heaven & Hell (Deluxe Edition), which is available for purchase now.
