[Interview] No Malice of The Clipse: I don’t think it’s the listener’s duty to separate real from the fake

I had a interview scheduled to happen this past weekend and circumstances changed and I was left with no guest. I was going through my laptop to see if there anything I could release and I found my interview Malice one half of The Clipse, who now goes by No Malice.

I originally planned to release the phone interview as a video that would accompany The Clipse music videos and pictures; the video footage was corrupted and I the interview was forgotten about in the shuffle.

When I uploaded the interview to soundcloud it was 12:15pm and the date today is Wednesday March 4, 2015. I wanted to find out exactly when this interview happened, I went through 3 email accounts and I finally found it Wednesday March 3rd, 2010 at 12:15pm. EXACTLY five years and one day have passed, I don’t think its a coincidence and I think this is supposed to happen. Without further ado, I present my interview with No Malice, where he tells me how to separate the real from the fake, how he was a part of the ignorance and foolishness of Hip-Hop, and so much more.

[Video] Big Sean feat. Drake & Kanye West- “Blessings” (Dir. Darren Craig)

With D A R K S K Y P A R A D I S E hot off the press, Big Sean drops some spooky visuals for the Drizzy and Kanye West assisted single, “Blessings.” Collecting (arguably) the three hottest emcees in the game right now on the same track, its safe to say that Big Sean cut no corners on the follow up to “IDFWU.” Big Sean is on his way to solidifying his legacy in the hip hop game; anyone who thought Sean Don would just be a flash in the pan is probably reconsidering that statement. Peep the video, and share your thoughts below.

[Video] Frank Douglas- “100 #1″ (Dir.KwadwoMawlif & Frank Douglas)


Frank Douglas has got to be one of the hardest working emcees I’ve come across. Bars,he’s got them for days. Videos,self directed and edited, no problem. Bottom line, dude keeps it, “100.” Every rapper aspires to keep their craft, “100,” authentic, and true to the art of hip hop. In a game where everyone is hustling to make it to the top, if you don’t keep it “100,” you gotta take it back to the drawing board. This quick short shot by KwadwoMawlif and Frank lets the people know what dedication really is. Peep Franks first of several short cuts, “100,” and hit the full article to peep the video for Richie Dolo & Frank Douglas, “It’s Okay.”

[Video] Allan- “27” (Dir. Steph Verschuren)


Every track this dude releases is fire, and reaffirms why I mess with him so much. Allan is back at it with this latest release,”27.” If you’re ever in the need to find mood music, Allan has you covered. His growing catalog of hits are the perfect soundtrack for any emotion; you want to mellow out, Allan’s got you…feeling particularly angsty, no sweat your bases are covered. “27” is the third single from Mr. Rayman’s forthcoming LP, Hotel Allan. Be sure to check this video out, and leave your thoughts below.

[Event] Shad with special guest Zaki Ibrahim March 27th @ Massey Hall (Toronto)


When you think of alternative hip hop rappers in Toronto the first name I hope comes to mind is Kenya born and London, Ontario’s own Shad K or Shad. He’ll be taking the stage at Massey Hall in celebration of Canadian music by taking part in their “Live at Massey Hall” concert series on Friday, March 27, 2015. He will also be joined by special guest soulful British Columbia singer Zaki Ibrahim whose last visit to this venue was alongside Erykah Badu a few years prior. With his borderline comical raps, and precision flow and her soulful vocals, these two will be sure to provide a night attendees will enjoy.

[Audio] K-os – “7evenGod {EgoTrippin} BLack. Mystery. Month.”

k os

“This new song has 2 titles. I called it Black Mystery Month precisely because of my quandary about how to celebrate it. It’s a mystery to me at this point, especially as a musician to comprehend what being black is even defined as? In a bizarre turn of self fulfilling prophecy it seems like most of the youth culture in the world ARE black even if their skin tone is not… They seem to exude a black or African ethos quite effortlessly and there is no doubt Hip Hop has had a lot to do with this expression.”

– K-OS

Kevin is back at it with this latest release, “7evenGod {EgoTrippin} BLack. Mystery. Month.” As long as I’ve been listening to hip hop, I’ve been listening to K-os. When you look at his body of work, I feel it’s safe to say that K-os is one of the most interesting musicians in the game, period. From his style and flow to hip hop philosophies, everything is on an outer worldly tip…I wish I could be in his head just for one day to better understand these gems he’s constantly dropping. I’m really digging the trap influences that K-os has been embracing as of late. “7evenGod {EgoTrippin} BLack. Mystery. Month.” along with his previous release, “Wild4TheNight” prove that K-os can kill it in any genre of hip hop. Whether its acoustic, electric, boom bap or trap, every track is fire. Be on the look out for Can’t Fly Without Gravity, the 6th studio coming from K-os. Needless to say I am very excited. Let us know what you think!

[Audio] Luxe Taylor- “Day One”


Luxe Taylor is back at it with this trap banger, “Day One.” The beat is heavy, the flow is nasty and the hook is catchy as hell; what more could you ask for. Luxe is definitely coming into his own on this latest single. The first track I heard by Luxe was “On” and I was a fan right off the bat. Judging by this latest effort, I feel it’s safe to say that Luxe is on a roll right now. Be sure to check this track out, and leave your thoughts below.
