Although Chicago represents the third largest market in the United States behind New York and LA, it still doesn’t scream entertainment industry. Every major musician tours in Chicago because of the vast amount of exposure and record sales that generate from the city. Chicago even has a few legendary venues and artists that have gone on to bigger and better things. When you think of the likes of Chaka Khan, Von Freeman, Jennifer Hudson, Common, Kanye West, Da Brat, Twista, Little Walter, Junior Wells, and even the emerging Chance the Rapper, Chitown has a lot to be proud of. Even with those aforementioned artists, Chicago is not the music helm it should be.
