Some new waves for you. I don’t know who XO aka Sunil Heera is but what I DO know is that he makes amazing tunes! If you like this then watch out for his Through The Night EP dropping soon and check out his SoundCloud.
You all know that I’m a huge fan of Shad. Even before the Drake-era (and maybe even during), Shad has been my favourite Canadian rapper. My friends up at The Come Up Show caught up with Shad and Classified to talk about how they discovered each other’s music, their most embarrassing moments onstage, the best year in hip-hop history, and much more. This is a great conversation between the two Canadian hometown heroes.
I still think I LOVE MAKONNEN is a one hit wonder. I heard his new stuff and I’m still not feeling it. Lets be real, Tuesday is only a hot track cause of Drake. This guy can make a hit out of aaaaaaaanything!
“Shepard on the beat hoe!” That’s what people would say if Shepard produced music. Not only did Hennessy’s latest collaboration lead to a beautiful one-of-a-kind bottle but it also brought art and music together. Personally, I had no idea that Shepard Fairey knows how to spin on the 1s and 2s. I did however know that he was the creative genius behind OBEY clothing and the amazing art pieces seen around many urban cities. On October 2, Shepard was in Toronto for the official launch of his Hennessy VS Shepard Fairey limited edition bottle.
This was a special visit because it was ONLY stop in Canada! The bottle features the iconic OBEY symbol in the centre of the label, his popular star symbol and additional illustrative design elements. Shepard Fairey created something wholly unique—a bottle that showcases his style as an artist as well as the heritage, character and quality that forms the foundation of Hennessy.
While visiting Toronto, Shepard Fairey made sure he left his mark in the city with two murals.
You can catch the OBEY eye on the side of Tattoo Nightclub (567 Queen St. W):
You can catch the Rise Above on the side of the Gladstone Hotel:
The Hennessy VS Limited Edition Shepard Fairey bottle is available at the LCBO but act FAST cause once it’s sold out, it’s gone forever!
With two months left to go, Love Apparatus is making its way to my top 10 albums of 2014. Jesse Boykins III released another amazing visual off his album for his record “Show Me Who You Are.” If you still haven’t heard any of Jesse’s music then you should go on YouTube or Soundcloud right now!
Pretty Flacko back in this $hit.
It sounds like Rick Ross and Beat Billionaire just keep sampling Cortex’s Troupeau Bleu album. Consider this a preview of Stalley’s debut MMG album Ohio. Shit is for the sreeeeeets! October 27th, pay attention. HA!
The second single from Toronto’s Keys N Krates forthcoming Every Nite EP, “Understand Why” combines loopy, pitched up 90s house vocals, knocking rap drums, epic synths, big bass, and haunting voices to form a genre defying banger.
No losers here. 2014 may be coming to a close but Becky Hill is just getting started. Listen to the amazing new single ‘Losing’ from Becky Hill’s forthcoming debut album. It’s an instant smash hit and it just proves why Becky Hill is the one to watch out for! With MNEK backing her up, there will only be winners with her debut album.
With their debut album SIRENS coming out October 6th, Gorgon City release another amazing track from the album. If you haven’t been sleeping in a hole or listening to the same bullshit on your iPod, then you know that Gorgon City has been taking over the airwaves with their summer anthem “Ready For Your Love”, featuring MNEK. Well… in the UK they have. Toronto needs to step their shit up and introduce these guys in our airwaves!
