Just finished working on the artwork for my upcoming new release, MINOR KEYZ. My second official Gothic Soul Entertainment release. I must say it’s coming together slowly but surely. I’ve enlisted some of Chicago best rappers and singers once again. You can count on features from Race Bannon, Vell the General, K-Luv the Poet and Mac Millie to name a few. In fact Mac Millie has the first single from the project. Titled “Ice Cream Man”, but yet has nothing to do with the ice cream man, Lol.

Preparing to start on another trax for the project, with Booda Blaou in mind. Been wanting to collab with this brutha, for a long time. I’m thinking something grimmy. HipHop of course. Hmmm, let’s see what I come up with.



Kenautis Smith & Race Bannon | “Honor Us”

My brutha RACE BANNON back with the collab with KENAUTIS SMITH on production: “HONOR US”.

Race Bannon | “LIVING FOR THE NOW” | feat Thaione Davis

Check out my brutha Race Bannon featuring Thaione Davis in, “Living For the Now”. Produced by: Kenautis Smith

This is the 2nd video from Kenautis Smith and Race Bannon’s recent release, Five Star Morning. Featuring Chicago’s very own Thaione Davis. Over Kenautis‘ smooth soulful sampling, Race poses the question, “Why must we die to see where heaven is?  Why can’t we live it, touch it, breathe it, inherit it?”

Kenautis Smith & Race Bannon | “DOG” [O.G. Mix]

Kenautis Smith & Race Bannon team up to give us their 1st offering from the upcoming LP, “Five Star Morning” due for release Aug.12th. Race’s aggressive yet and insightful lyrics combined with Kenautis Smith’s soulful, boom-bap stylings are just what hip-hop heads have been looking for.

Race Bannon | Race Tracks Moto X

My homie Race Bannon of Primeridian. Last Year, Race exposed us to the fact that he dabbles in production with his 14 track beattape sampler called N.A.S.C.A.R. (Race Tracks). Here is the follow-up to N.A.S.C.A.R.(Race Tracks) entitled Race Tracks Moto X, an 11 track sampler of some of Race’s recent production. Start your engines and enjoy the beattape or the videobeattape.
