Netherfriends – “Sex Beat” feat. Chandler London

Mastering: Chris Classick
Additional MPC by Danimal The Choppa

“Sex Beat” is the first single from Netherfriends Goes West, an upcoming Netherfriends project comprised predominantly of Kanye West samples.  Chandler London caps off the track with a verse of lucid lyricism. The video features cameos from the usual suspects, spliced with some familiar West Coast footage, and that scene from The Mack– which hasn’t sounded this good since “Wisdom Body.”  Download “Sex Beat” below.

Netherfriends x Jams Dean – “Jams In The Road”


Video shot and edited by Netherfriends

While blogs continue to debate its status as one of the best or worst things to ever upload to the Internet, this video- shot in, out, and around the Kimball House, features Jams Dean rocking over some Beatles loops à la Netherfriends.

Local Loop described the vid as “…an awesomely atrocious stoner movie,” while JP Bombé of Kimball House called it “F@#kin’ awesome!” Lydia Simmons from Sunset In The Rearview said, “…it really is sh!t, and actually just takes away from the fun little tune that I’ve become addicted to over the past 24 hours.”

Speaking of that fun little tune, if the video’s not your thing, you can get the song below. You’re welcome.

Netherfriends – “Never Walk Out On You” feat. Elee X & Blakkass Westley


Video shot and edited by Netherfriends

A classic tale of relationships long dead, “Never Walk Out On You” has been a blog and fan-favorite from Netherfriends (with the original Impolite Society lineup of Elee and Wes) ever since the track premiered on Ruby Hornet in August of last year– and re-surfaced to be included on Netherfriends’ first full-length Hip Hop release, New CHI-t, back in July.

The ImSo clique has since expanded, as has the number of available Netherfriends projects, but the three artists took a minute to have some fun and shoot this video, almost a year to-the-day of the song’s original release.  The video was shot here at the Kimball House, it features a lo-fi aesthetic, a plastic leg, a cameo from fellow Impolite member Khalfani, and Blakkass Westley making some of the creepiest facial expressions in a rap video since Redman’s “Time 4 Sum Aksion.”

Did someone say something about a heat wave? Be safe, folks, and stay cool this summer by throwing on that VHS copy of Do The Right Thing you have in the garage, or by playing this joint from Netherfriends and Auggie the 9th.

“Summer Sex” can be heard on New CHI-t, the Hip-Hop mixtape Netherfriends dropped at the beginning of the month- featuring guest appearances from a host of Chicago artists.

In the spirit of Miles Davis’ Kind Of Blue, Netherfriends put together “Kind Of Buzzed”- a series of improvised beats, cooked up fresh on the spot, and garnished with the freestyles of different Chicago Hip Hop artists.
