Theo drops his newest video for his single Why Even Try which features Sara Quin from the Calgary band Sara and Quin. You can find this track on Theophilus’ EP Lovers Holiday.

For the last week of March, I review Wiz Khalifa’s highly anticipated third album Rolling Papers. This album is a big deal to Wiz because its his first major label debut. Before reviewing, I listened to this album for a week straight and the tracks ‘Hopes And Dreams’ and ‘The Race’ really stood out to me. And if you didn’t know by now, Toronto’s The Weeknd have released their new mixtape ‘House Of Balloons’. I transcribed a few tracks from the mixtape, which is getting crazy love from everyone who listens to it, so check that out on Lissa Monét’s website while you’re there.

UK’s very own Frankmusik who is known for alt-synth pop, remixes the awesomeness Kay’s single ‘My Name Is Kay’. This remix is full of energy and will definitely be a club banger! If you don’t know what her name is still then check this out.

Well isn’t he nice! 2011 JUNO award winner (best hip-hop album TSOL) Shad gives us a brand new track for free as a thank you to all his fans for all the love and support. The track is produced by Skratch Bastid and boy oh boy its a banger!

Chedo from The Come Up Show comes again with a brand new interview but this time with Toronto’s hip-hop up and comers, Blake Carrington and producer Ric Notes. In this interview they talk about how Black and Ric met, Blake’s new mixtape Love Is A Risk, having an internet presence and more.

Last night the 2011 Juno Awards took place at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Drizzy hosted the evening and he did a musical/comedy sketch to open up the show with a very funny ‘Old Money’ sketch later on in the show. Over all the show was boring and there wasn’t enough love for the urban music community. Shad’s TSOL took home the award for hip-hop album of the year and they didn’t even televise it. And even though Canadian hip-hop made a huge impact around the world, Junos didn’t even have Shad or Drake perform on stage. If they really wanted to go out with a bang Kardinal Offishall should have closed the show with ‘The Anthem’, but ofcorse that didn’t happen. The only part of the show that was great to see was Drake hosting and Chromeo bringing some energy to the dull show and if they really wanted the place to liven up they should have had Deadmau5 perform.

Its been awhile since we’ve had a Monster Monday, but Swizzy comes through with his first single off his upcoming album Haute Living. The single features his long time Ruff Ryder friend Eve. Swizz always knows how to make crazy beats so I really can’t wait to hear out this album will sound like.

Here is something fresh for your ears this sunny weekend! I have never heard of John West before but when I came across this track, I just had to spread the the love to my readers. John West’s smooth raspy vocals kind of reminds me of Robin Thicke (just a little). Produced by Christian Rich, the beat is similar to Kanye’s ‘Heard Em Say’ with an acoustic guitar. Pusha T even drops two verses on this track, so its a win win. John West is signed to Mercury/Island Def Jam and his album will be coming out this summer.

Calgary’s soulful Jenna Andrews covers one of her favourite tracks, Brandy’s ‘Almost Doesn’t Count’ acoustic style. You really can’t get sick of her amazing vocals and her debut album is gonna be really something!

Canada’s rising pop/hip-hop princess Kay releases a brand new track. Kay covers Justin Bieber’s infamous single Baby and she puts her own twist on it.
