We chopped it up for an hour with him about his upcoming debut album ‘SALEM’ including the production, recording process & a lot more. We also talked about the current state of hip hop, how free music is a good thing, how Toronto rappers aren’t being represented enough & upcoming shows. Make sure you check it out and remember SALEM drops this Wednesday March 5th!

Vic is back again with a new cut after hitting us with that “Hollywood LA” video a few days back. Production on this one goes to Boi-1da & The Maven Boys and hopefully this will bring Vic to Toronto in the near future. I’m really looking forward to his upcoming project INNANETAPE and it’s dropping soon so make sure you keep an eye and ear out for that. Check his back catalogue to get yourself caught up! Make sure to check out our interview with Vic Mensa as well.
The Yancey Boys (J Dilla & his younger sibling Illa J) hit us with a new cut which I’m guessing is a release off of the upcoming The Lost Scrolls releases. Vol. 1 has dropped and is available on iTunes. Ma Dukes (J Dilla’s Mother) is going to continue to release music that was unreleased and re-discovered and given to her.
Richie’s back! Dropping off the 1st single to his upcoming mixtape Le Renaissance which is coming very VERY soon. I’ve been keeping quiet about a few of the tracks I’ve heard and MAKE SURE you stayed tuned for this tape. It’s sure to make an impact this summmer!
Junia T hit me earlier in the week with a new jam he produced. Veronica Domingues is a new Toronto R&B artists he’s working with and will be producing her entirely new EP titled Just Chill and is set to drop this spring. This jam has got a nice funk jazz type feel to it….If you know Junia T you know it’s good music!
Taken from her SoundCloud page….
She decided to team up with Producer/Emcee Junia-T of Smash Brovaz and Director/Filmmaker Customatic. Currently recording her first EP entitled “Just Chill”, she is hoping to showcase a different soulful vibe to the rest of Toronto. She hopes that “Just Chill” will get people to really relax and enjoy the vibes around them. She believes there is nothing better than taking that alone time for yourself.
2013 is the 10th anniversary of Jay’s famous “final” album The Black Album. After hearing 9th say “Approximately 10 years ago….” it really threw me off. I was 15 years old and I remember buying this album at Music World (Remember those stores?) on my break at work. I came home and instantly put it in. I remember telling my step-brother as the album began “This is IT right here.” IT meaning this was Jay’s last album and would no doubt go down in history as one of his best albums ever. I listened to the album twice that night before I fell asleep and I woke up, went to school and told everyone how incredible it was.
Which brings me to this video…..9th Wonder breaking down the incredibly produced “Threat” and telling the story of how he and Chaundon went to NY and met with Jay. I always LOVE hearing stories like these…the behind the scenes tales about the best albums in hip hop.
The homey Richie has been working on new material for the new year and believe me it’s going to smack you in the face. As he usually does, Richie hits us with another really dope track (a few in my inbox are craaack) showcasing his work ethic. He recently posted on facebook stating “Difference between me and you “rappers” is you can dissect every line in this song and its just me speaking from a completely honest place, no need to fabricate anything.” Be on the lookout for new material from Richie and the PMG squad!
