I can’t believe the news that Sean Price has passed away this morning, he was only 43 years old. According to reports from his family and friends, he died this morning in his sleep at his home in Brooklyn, NY. We don’t know cause of death at this time. I had the pleasure to interview in 2011 and again in 2013 for TCUS 6 Year Anniversary. He was an amazing personality, emcee and his contributions of our culture with Heltah Skeltah and Boot Camp Clik will forever be remembered. I’d like to send my sincerest condolences to Duck Down and his family. I’d like you to comment on this post and tell me what Sean Price music meant to you.
REST IN PEACE SEAN PRICE!
As you may know TCUS started in London as a radio show on 94.9 CHRW, during my time in the city, I had the pleasure of meeting people like The Goodz and I’m happy to share with you his debut EP No Time. My favourite track has gets me turnt up is Max Up and he has a feature with Roscoe Dash 2.0. Take this in and tell me what you think in the comments section below.
While the ‘mecca’ of Canadian rap has honed itself in Toronto, the talent that subsides just outside of it reveals just as much talent – and this time, it comes in the from London, ON, artist The Goodz.
Layering elements taken from several genres, including rock & roll to R&B, the singer/songwriter carries elements of his upbringing as the son of Motown’s Gary Martin of the legendary Funk Brothers and intertwines them with hypnotic melodies and bass-heavy production.
With production from Mikhail, Deli and Fax Cain, as well as a feature from Roscoe Dash 2.0, the 5-track EP creates an experience that ties in elements of the London, ON, music scene alongside the dark waves and ambient vibes of the underground party circuit.

Imagine you just won a very unexpected Juno award and it’s Saturday night, what is your first choice of drink?
If you missed our original behind the scenes coverage of the Juno Awards I’d suggest you take it in. You will appreciate the bonus cuts that I’ll be releasing in the coming week. The first video is from my interview with Tona and Adam Bomb they take us to the exact moment when their names were announced as the winners of the Rap Recording of the Year. They share if winning the Juno Awards does anything for their motivation and Tona explains what his favourite drink Tiger Blood consists of and yes, what their choice of drink would be.
