Noisey have released the first episode of their eight-part series Welcome to Chiraq – a series that explores Chicago, where the flourishing rap scene is inextricably linked with a violent gang culture that currently has a stranglehold on the city. In the first part, they visit one of the most dangerous districts of the city, Englewood, where up-and-coming Drill producer Young Chop gives an overview of the current scene. Due to legal issues, Chief Keef was unavailable so members of the notorious 3Hunna gang, Lil Durk and Lil Reese both make an appearance to expand further on the violence that not only surrounds the area, but is also at the core of the music.
