MASSIVE! TRON City All Starts! I don’t even know what else to say. K-OS, Saukrates, Kardinal Offishall, Choclair, King Reign & Shad K link up for “Boyz II Men.” This track lets us know Canadian hip hop is in full effect. It’s amazing to see the elite of Canadian hip hop unite to give the heads what they’ve been feening for. From top to bottom this track is a 10/10. The Public Enemy “Fear of a Black Planet,” sample, as well as the Whitney Houston vocal chop gives this track that nostalgic hip hop feel the games been missing. Be sure to check this track out, and let us know who you think had the nicest verse.

The lines “Don’t bring the ball to my court n**** with your weak ass take,” sum this track up perfectly- Van and Bane$sin are playing for keeps on this track, with no losers outs. Be on the look for Van Hill’s debut ILLZED project, Naked Museum dropping soon, in the mean time take this latest track in, and share your thoughts with us.

Amniat is back with his latest single, “Never Ever.” I’ve been listening to this emcees music for a while now, and what I dig most about Amniat is that all his music comes from a genuine place; He’s a student to the game, and it’s clear that he has been doing his home work on this latest track. Not only does the dude have an amazing flow, but the content is truly on that conscious tip, which is refreshing to hear. Be sure to check this latest single out, and search for Amniat’s previous projects, the kid has an impressive body of work.
Tyler Durand only needs one night to do his thing. Inspired by the James DeMonaco thriller, Durand brings us his own rendition of “The Purge.” Tyler spits some menacing bars while chaos swallows the bell city. Between the car crashes, muggins and other random acts of violence, Tyler keeps his cool and gives the people that real hip hop music. Durand is a beast on the track any given day of the week; but when its time to purge, emcees better watch out. Be on the look out for Tyler’s upcoming project, DRND 2, coming soon.

Give it up for London’s own Del Reze, and the release of his highly anticipated mixtape, The Muzik Asylum. For months now Reze has been grinding in preparation for this release. You’ve seen several self directed videos from Del. You probably heard him on the radio a gang of times as well; whether it was a live studio performance or an in depth interview about the project, dude was letting his presence be known through out the air waves. Reze was able to see the results of his grind pay off this past Wednesday, October 22nd, when he shut down the APK for the Muzik Asylum release party. If you missed the release party, you’re in luck. Reze has just put the project up in its entirety for download.
Del Reze brings listeners an epic battle between himself and the music through each song. The concept behind The Muzik Asylum is, a battle between Reze’s sanity and his devotion to his craft. With features from Jux Cain, Jr Fillion, Jay Downz and Casper The Ghost, Del cut no corners in making this project one to remember; the music speaks for itself.
Be sure to check this mixtape out, and support one of the hardest working emcees in the game.
