A proud Chicago native, Lupe Fiasco is an inheritor and caretaker of his city’s rich and innovative Black music history. Today, Lupe and his label 1st & 15th share Chill’s Spotlight 4, a new compilation EP that delves deep into the history of House music, the now worldwide phenomenon that started in Chicago in the early 1980s. Produced in full by Vince Lawrence, known as the father of House music, Chill’s Spotlight 4 takes the genre back to its roots, offering five pulse-elevating dance anthems from Chicago artists to salute “The Spirit of Chicago House.”

Notable among the songs on Chill’s Spotlight 4, is a brand new remix of Lupe Fiasco’s song “Wild Child,” originally released on Lupe’s 2018 album DROGAS WAVE

Aided by Lawrence’s smooth sensibilities, the new remix translates the bouncy guitar pop of the original version into the language of House, adding a liquid bassline, smooth electric keys, and prominent, washed out percussion, each element weaving between Lupe’s rhymes to create an exhilarating effect. Featuring additional songs from Lil G, from the multi-Platinum-selling R&B group Silk, Chicago singer-songwriter Peter Jericho, and more, Chill’s Spotlight 4 is available everywhere via Thirty Tigers.

The new Chill’s Spotlight compilation comes hot on the heels of  PRECIOUS THINGS,” an innovative, AlbertoAngelini-directed music video for a highlight from Lupe’s acclaimed 2022 album DRILL MUSIC IN ZION.
