Think Chicago is Dangerous Now? It Was More Violent Back Then.


The Windy City’s been the focus of dueling documentaries, with WorldStarHipHop‘s The Field: Chicago project debuting recently and Noisey’sWelcome to Chiraq” series rolling out in eight parts beginning this week.

We’ll leave it up to you to decide which take is better and from which franchise; for what it’s worth Esquire called WSHH’s “the most important rap documentary you’ll see this year” and we’d side with them o.e.

But trust us, no matter how ratchet the rapper, these twin docs can’t compete with 2006’s “Gangsta City” produced by the Cabrini Heat collective, featuring native Chicagoans and nary an MC in sight.
