[Audio] Tona ft. Kayo – “Ol Time Sake” (Prod: Slot-A)

Tona - Ol Time Sake

Here’s one to bump while the last days of summer come to an end. Tona teams up with Kayo and Chicago producer Slot-A for “Ol Time Sake,” a one-off single ahead of his upcoming album Carpe Diem. Slot-A sets the scene with a futuristic pitched-up soul vibe over some banging drums. As usual, Tona does his thing: precise flow, impeccable delivery. Kayo’s technical progression continues to shine through here too — it’ll be long past due when his official Black Box album eventually drops. Stream and download “Ol Time Sake” below and stay tuned for Tona’s album, set to drop in mid-September.

[Video] Miles Jones – “Satisfied” (Dir: Graham Beasley)

Miles Jones - Satisfied

Late pass on this one, but I’m going to defend myself by saying it’s timely given this past weekend’s PGA Championship. Miles Jones dropped the goofy (or should I say golf-y) visuals to “Satisfied,” a sneakily infectious track off The Jones Act (Part III) that’s perfect for the summertime. Graham Beasley gets the directors credit for this DJ Serious-produced track. Check out the visuals to “Satisfied” below. For more on Miles Jones, make sure you check out our interview with him.

[Interview + Podcast] Eternia talks gratitude, being present in the moment, and life after hip-hop

Interview by: Martin Bauman

Who’s the most underrated artist in Canadian hip-hop? There are many, but Eternia would have to be among the forerunners. Bar for bar, she can rap better than just about anyone and hold her own with the very best in the game. She’s earned respect from the likes of DJ Premier and Pete Rock, and her 2010 album At Last with MoSS earned a Juno nomination as Rap Recording of the Year.

The funny thing is, as soon as the Ottawa emcee started earning the praise and recognition she was due, she decided to take a step back from hip-hop. With the exception of a few rare guest appearances and “Final Offering,” it’s been four years since Eternia has released any substantial work. Instead, she’s opted to pursue other passions — at least for now.

Needing to know whether we’d ever hear another Eternia album again, we reached out to her and spoke about the importance of gratitude, learning to be present in the moment, what life after hip-hop brings, and much more. Listen to the podcast above and read the interview after the jump.

[Interview + Podcast] Oddisee talks lessons learned in Khartoum, early influences, and defining success

Interview by: Martin Bauman

Who’s the most consistent artist in hip-hop these days? It’s a tough question, but Oddisee’s name has to be in the mix. Equally adept behind the boards and on the microphone, he very rarely disappoints when dropping new music. The Prince George’s County, Maryland-raised artist calls it releasing “quantity and quality,” and he’s got a case: in the past four years alone, he’s released Rock Creek Park, People Hear What They See, The Beauty in All, and Tangible Dream. Not a bad run, if you ask me.

Oddisee is more than just a solid musician, however. He’s a bright thinker, an observant and engaging lyricist, and one of the best examples of independent success you’ll find. Naturally, we had to pick his brain. We caught up with Oddisee to talk about lessons he learned spending summers in Khartoum, early musical influences, defining success, and much more.

[Interview + Podcast] Muneshine talks “In Transit,” life lessons, and not being afraid to be different

Interview by: Martin Bauman

The last time we caught up with Muneshine, he was at a crossroads: musically, better than ever after collaborating with D-Sisive on Jonestown 3, and yet personally, fed up with the lack of support and infrastructure in Canada. His and D-Sisive’s exasperation represented how a lot of Canadian hip-hop artists felt, and at the time, it seemed entirely possible that both were done with hip-hop. As a fan, it was heartbreaking to watch. An era had ended before it had even been given its due.

A lot can change in the course of two years, and fittingly, that’s the theme through which we re-encounter Muneshine on his latest album, In Transit: navigating his way into new musical lanes, seeking new challenges. Less involved in hip-hop and more inspired by dance music these days, In Transit shows as much as things may have changed, he still can’t seem to ditch the rapping bug yet. We caught up with Muneshine to talk about the album, life lessons, not being afraid to be different, and much more. Listen to the podcast above and read the interview after the jump.
