Noisey Presents Episode Two of 'Chiraq' Series

Noisey, VICE's music channel, today presents Episode Two of an all-access pass to Chicago's rap music scene, titled Chiraq. In the episode, Chief Keef and his crew head to New York while we catch up with Chicago rap collectives MGS and Global Gangstas Entertainment, 14-year-old rapper Yung Trell, and the Chicago Police Department to discuss the social and cultural challenges faced by the community.

Shot over several months, the eight-part series is the most in-depth documentation of the personalities, controversies, and social forces shaping the current Drill music movement emerging from Chicago's South Side; offering extensive interviews with hometown rappers and producers Chief Keef, Young Chop, Lil Durk, and SaveMoney.

As the music scene is often plagued by violence and competing politics, Chiraq also meets with the 3Hunna and its rival gangs, the Chicago Police Department, and the Nation of Islam.

VICE started Noisey back in 2011, criss-crossing the globe documenting the year in music from heavy-hitters to tiny garage bands who usually play for their girlfriends and moms. Since then, it has grown into one of the most unique and successful video-driven music sites on the planet. In 2012, Noisey teamed with YouTube as a premium content provider, and built out a series of shows that take a completely fresh take on the world of music. As an editorial resource, reaches millions of people a month, and has become a go-to source for weird music news, artist-sourced content, and VICE's signature offbeat coverage. Noisey throws parties and shows worldwide, hosts innovative online listening parties for new records, and produces videos for the best artists in the world, like MIA, Die Antwoord, A$AP Rocky, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Noisey is more than just a music site-music is the lens with which we explore youth culture all over the world.
