We are reporting on this here news that most of you probably already know about. It’s once again time for the Illinois State Fair, it’s just right around the corner and only a few weeks away (like 27 weeks in fact). The Illinois State Fair will be happening this year on August 13th through the 23rd. Last week the State Fair announced some of their headlining grandstand acts. The first up is the 26 year old singer songwriter, Kane Brown. Then big country legend Toby Keith. Something about a Neil Diamond cover band. Another country act, Chris Young. We have big time rapper LL Cool J performing… for the first time in Springfield(?) And then of course we have Puddle Of Mudd.

That’s what they have announced so far, folks! Tickets for some of those acts go on sale online on April 25th. Stay tuned for more State Fair announcements, you can pay attention to the Illinois State Fair website, or follow them on facebook. Will this year top Joan Jett and Snoop Dogg?

Good morning, world. Today we bring you a fresh new track (fresh out of the oven) from local rap artist from Lanphier High School, Nkeyla Henderson. Nkeyla (also known as Keyng) has a new track  called “Mad @ You” which you can find streaming on the Youtube player embedded below, and features another artist “Zacari.”

Nkeyla performed at a hip hop show at our space back in September. The next show we have lined up at Dumb Records is another hip hop show.
