The Chicago artist formerly known as Hyype has released his debut video under his new moniker “Silver.” Taking from his government name, Silver picks up right where Hyype left off with his new record “Breathe.” Dark and gritty, the Flight Life directed visual compliments the track well as Silver shows off his lyrical prowess. New name, same game, Silver continues to supply the streets with quality. Check out the video for “Breathe” above and keep an eye out for more.
Chicago spitter Hyype recently released a new track titled “Vital.” The Chicago MC links up with Miami’s own Boobielootaveli over a dark synth ridden instrumental. Both artists hold their own with a pair of quick witted verses that display each of their lyrical ability. Hyype has been a little quiet as of late, but we have a feeling that all of this will change very soon. Check out “Vital” above and stay tuned for more from Hyype and The 11th Realm.
Chicago spitter, Hyype, recently teamed up with DJ Hustlenomics and DJ Sawbuck on a track titled “Nightmares.” Hyype has his way with the dark, heavy hitting instrumental, exercising a range of flows. Short and sweet, Hyype continues to grow, his wordplay sharpens with each release. Check out “Nightmares” below and keep an eye out for more.

A couple of days ago we received a track from Chicago’s own Hyype entitled “Feast”. This time around, the 11th Realm rapper enlists the help of his 197 brethren Lucki Eck$ and Adamn Killa. “Feast” plays like a movie, cinematic from it’s opening moments until it’s final seconds; a record we can already see the visual for. Hyype continues to maneuver throughout Chicago’s underground scene like a veteran, collaborating with various artists all while maintaining his own unique sound. As we enter 2015, it’ll be interesting to see what’s next for Hyype, check out the record below and be on the look out for more.
A couple of days ago, Chicago spitter Hyype dropped his new project Seraphic for all of our listening pleasure. After turning heads earlier this year with Divine Minded, Hyype continues to progress with his music, Seraphic picks up where DM left off, but gives a deeper perspective into the man’s drive. The project features some quality production with placements from Plu2o Nash, Lazy Kev and Rhakim Ali just to name a few. Hyype does a good job selecting beats that flow well within the tape while also complimenting his flow. Another solid record from one of the CHI’s harder workers, check out Seraphic below and stay tuned for more.
A couple of days ago, Chicago rapper Hyype dropped a new video for his single “Will Smith”. Directed by Jake Osmun, the black and white video is simple yet visually stimulating, allowing for Hyype’s lyrics to take center stage. The 11th Realm has been making moves as of late, with “Will Smith” being the most recent offering. Peep the video above and keep an eye out for more from Hyype.
