Emcee ShowYouSuck keeps throwing pizza parties for himself, and more and more people keep showing up. Emcee ShowYouSuck keeps throwing pizza parties for himself, and more and more people keep showing up. In December, Show dropped his "dark and edgy" mixtape One Man Pizza Part III: Rest In Pizza, the release of which he celebrated just a couple of weeks ago.

Now, he's got a new video for Rest In Pizza track "The Return of Headbanger's Ball," and it's an unlikely, but excellent, tribute to the late MTV show. Name checking Primus, shouting out late Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell, and doing creative sampling of Ozzy Osbourne, Show raps over a spooky, repeating keyboard line and mile-a-minute snare hits. C'mon, everybody: scream "Dimebag's back!"

This Thursday, Show is part of an absolutely insane quadruple bill at the Bottom Lounge, sponsored by Red Bull and Fake Shore Drive, which includes Freddie Gibbs, Sasha Go Hard (who just released a new mixtape yesterday called Round 3), and Tree, who the Chicago Reader calls "thoughtful and impassioned." The cost? $3. Pretty excellent, no? -

New visuals by one of my favorite rappers right now ShowYouSuck! This is his video for “Hunter Hearst Helmsley (Homies Help Homies)” which was apparently inspired by an episode of Adventure Time. Now, I haven’t watched a lot of Adventure Time, but what I’ve seen of it I thought was awesome. The fact that a character on the show said “homies help homies” at one point is amazing. It’s a good message for the kids.

It’s a good message for adults, too. This video’s theme is definitely friendship. It shows a ton of his friends hanging out, having a good time. It’s no secret ShowYouSuck has as much love for Mishka as we do for him and he’s rocking a pretty awesome Mishka jacket at one point. Oh, and speaking of homies helping homies, this song features ShowYouSuck’s good friend Auggie The 9th who spits a dope verse. Don’t sleep on Auggie The 9th. He’s really good. His flow is nuts on this. And, he has a very cool beard. - Mishka NYC

Inspired by Adult Swim’s Adventure Time, the Treated Crew emcee drops off the latest visuals from his OMPP2: Mo Slices Mo Problems mixtape.

The song means a lot because it speaks to my core principles and it’s the livest song to perform in my set. I’m really stoked to get more people to know about that song. I want to get to the point where I’m performing it, especially out of Chicago, and I don’t have to do the setup for people. The song comes on and they already know what to do. - 2Dope

With Chief Keef making a bang on the Internet—pun intended—and Kanye West reminding listeners where he's from on "Way Too Cold" and his remix of Keef's "I Don't Like," a lot of eyes are on Chicago right now to see what it can bring next. Amongst the buzzed-about on the hip-hop scene is the Treated crew, whose members don snapback caps that you may have seen on the head of 'Ye himself. One of the collective's affiliates, ShowYouSuck, is an MC who has been making noise throughout the Chi with the release of his most recent project OMPP2: Mo Slices Mo Problems this past December. To keep word of the tape spreading, ShowYouSuck has brought forth a music video for one of his favorite songs off of it, "Hunter Hearst Helmsley (HomiesHelpHomies)." Apparently, the title stemmed from an episode of Cartoon Network's Adventure Time and ended up becoming something of a personal anthem. Watch above as ShowYouSuck links up with his friend and hypeman Auggie The 9th to show the world how they do it in the Windy City. - Matt Morris -HypeTrack

Is Show You Suck the hardest working man in the Chicago rap community? The artist seems to be at every Chicago hip hop event, both in and out of the city, either as a performer, or an event MC.

While at SXSW earlier this month, the Chicago MC returned to the CVU podcast to discuss his time in Austin. That interview can be heard below.

Last week Clinton Sandifer, aka tongue-in-cheek Chicago rapper ShowYouSuck, released a 16-track mix tape called One Man Pizza Party 2: Mo Slices, Mo Problems, which includes collaborations with Grade A-plus, Flosstradamus, and Netherfriends. It's the follow-up to One Man Pizza Party, which dropped on April 20—not only a date beloved of weed aficionados but also Sandifer's 26th birthday (or so he says). He plans to close out the series with a remix collection titled Rest in Pizza.

The title of the mix reflects Sandifer's ebullient style as well as his sense of humor, and even its backstory is funny. At Wicker Park nightclub Debonair he ran into a woman he'd apparently forgotten he'd met. To jog his memory, she described a phone conversation she'd had with him and the amazing pickup line he'd used in it: "You told me you were a one-man pizza party."

Who knows if Sandifer actually said that, but either way he loved the idea. "There's nothing that speaks to youth and energy like pizza and partying," he says. One Man Pizza Party has gotten nods from outlets like trendy label-slash-clothing company Mishka and Chicago-based hip-hop site Ruby Hornet, which is also hosting One Man Pizza Party 2. And the new mix won't exist only on the Internet: Sandifer will give away CD copies of OMPP 2 at his release show at Reggie's Rock Club on Fri 1/13.

So instead of asking for presents on his birthday Show You Suck decided to give one to all of you lucky fucks. He's giving out a free EP entitled "OneManPizzaParty" brought to you by Ruby Hornet, Code of Conduct , Artpentry and the wonderful slacker holiday 4/20. The EP was produced by his long time collaborater Mike Jaxx and includes tracks that have been recently leaked by Ruby Hornet and songs that were originally intended to be on his Coyote del Coco mixtape.

That mixtape was slated to be released yesterday but since this EP came out instead we can only assume that the project got shelved or pushed back. The new tracks are sick and if you're in Chicago this Sunday night you can hear them live when Show You Suck performs at Beauty Bar (located where Sonotheque used to be.)
