There have been over 200 homicides in Chicago in the first half of 2013 alone, almost all of them gun-related crimes involving young inner-city males…Chicago loses more kids than soldiers in Iraq to gun violence.

Chicago emcee Spenzo begins his latest track “Heaven Can Wait” with these heartbreaking facts. If that isn’t enough to make you pause and look at a problem, I don’t know what is. Not only am I impressed with Spenzo’s new track, which takes a hard stand against gun violence (something I didn’t expect but am happily surprised by from the young rapper), but his progression as a whole. His new mixtape In Spenzo We Trust is some of the hottest stuff coming out of the city right now… and that’s saying a lot. Look to hear more about Spenzo in the near future, but until then, enjoy these dope visuals and grab his project here.
