The 50 Greatest Chicago Rap Songs

11. PsychoDrama "Magic" (1994)

Producer: The Legendary Traxster
Album: Magic
Label: Uncle Rick


While "Po Pimp" is the most celebrated Chicago pimp anthem of all time, "Magic" is the O.G. This smooth, slow, and crawling dedication to the possessing power of the P ranks as Traxster's first hit ever, and was the world's first introduction to the most known unknown rap group from Chicago. "Magic" was released as a cassette single that featured two other tracks and the radio version, via the super-indie Uncle Rick Records. The single circulated throughout mom-and-pop stores in Chicago and eventually spread throughout the Midwest and South. Although PD never achieved megastar status, this song alone ensures their entry into the record books.Andrew Barber
