Chicago emcee Show You Suck, is putting his mark on the music world, one skateboarder at a time with his mad hooks, slick rhymes and thought provoking lyrics. Straight from the hood, but you'd never guess it with his board toting, fashion conscious personality and nack for 80s and 90s pop culture.

Todays Hits

Todays Hits’ real name is James Francis Swanberg, and he’s a recent Chicago transplant from Lexington, Kentucky. That explains his bluegrass charm and cordiality; in fact, when people tried to tip him, he refused and asked them to forward the money to the bartender.
His most recent recording, aptly titled Who Ordered The Pizzas, is a 4-song collection of tracks entirely about pizza. Is it possible to swoon over a song about a pizza pie? Yes. Like most of his material, these tracks take on the form of catchy love songs, and would likely make any girl wish her boyfriend could love her as much as he loves sauce, cheese, and a crispy crust. Check it out (it's available for a price of your choosing, including free):

If you go clicking around his Bandcamp page, you’ll notice how very lo-fi his recordings are and that he has amassed a pretty hefty collection of songs (and they’re all free to download). That’s because this guy’s been recording a song a day for about a year and a half. You can hear them as he posts each daily over at his Tumblr.
