Exerpt from Chicago Red Streak Jan. 2004


But one release and one show do not make a great a year. How about this: 2004 will also mark the return, the debut and the coronation of some of Chicago's most recognized, most followed, and most sought acts.
In one year the city will have new releases from the veterans All Natural (All Natural Inc.), the internationally loved Typical Cats (Galapagos 4), the legendary O-Type Star (Frontline) and the electric live band Abstract Giants (Pull 'Em Up), whose shows gain followers almost daily.
Add up the elements and what you'll find is something set to explode.
In 2004 look for Chicago hip-hop to make a national buzz, show unprecedented cooperation, and pepper the industry with high quality, greatly anticipated product.
