The Come Up Show is proud to be a sponsor of the Canadian Tour of Upperclass Men of Brooklyn, NY. It’s my first time really checking them out and with the hundreds of shows I’ve attended I’m excited to witness something “different”. Upperclass Men will be backed up by Toronto’s Vibonics and varying acts from each city! Starting off in London and ending up in Hamilton make sure to visit a concert in a city near you!
No matter how eclectic music tastes can get, there’s always something to be said for artists who give traditional genre lines a boisterous middle finger. The Upperclass Men are an example of what happens when boundaries set by genre typecasting are shattered in favour of a mind-rattling live show. Hitting the road after the release of their Parachutes EP, Southern Ontario is about to get a taste of rap-rock whiplash in an unforeseen way. Joined by Toronto’s own hip hop fusion band Vibonics on the tour, the Toronto show will also feature a performance by 12th Letter and music by DJ James Redi. In London, the Come Up Show-presented show will feature Casper of Treetop Entertainment, and in Hamilton the show will feature up-and-coming emcee/producer EmAy.
What: Upperclass Men featuring Vibonics live in concert. Check the poster for the openers!
When: Wednesday February 27th, 2013 to Friday March 1, 2013.
Where: London, Toronto, Hamilton.
Admission: Advance tickets vary from $5-$10. Get tickets for the London, Toronto and Hamilton online. You can also RSVP on facebook for the London, Toronto and Hamilton show.

If Kanye West & Jay-Z made Watch the Throne when they we’re completely poor this is what it would sound like. Or something close to it. Enjoy. #TakeTheJump
It’s an unexpected but a welcome surprise from J.Cole, he released a new EP this morning titled Truly Yours. As usual J.Cole wrote us a letter with his offering of new music, read it below with the tracklist and the download link. I’m excited to take it in and play it on The Come Up Show Radio this Saturday! What do you think? Are you a J.Cole fan? Are you excited for this EP and the second album?
I appreciate you giving me the time I needed to grow, experiment, and find the direction for my 2nd album.. And I have.
Along the way I’ve recorded at least 4 albums worth of material, lots of it being unfinished demo versions waiting to be polished up, some of them are great songs and important stories that just won’t make the album (either they don’t fit Sonically, don’t fit Theme, or there’s just not enough space) .
Tonight, I want to give you a few of these songs because you deserve them. It’s hard as fuck for me to keep all this music from you for so long, so I know it’s been hard for you to wait. Thank you for your patience. Vibe out to these songs in their raw form, no polish.. just a lot of my soul..
The wait is over.
PS- 1st single coming this week. The album is hands down my best work yet. Can’t wait to share.
01 Can I Holla At Ya
02 Crunch Time
03 Rise Above
04 Tears For ODB
05 Stay (2009)

18 year-old So Cal emcee Chazz released his 94 EP a while back. Running eight tracks deep, and with songs typically ranging around two minutes, the 94 EP is a quick, enjoyable listen. The EP is pretty lo-fi, but Chazz’ easy demeanour and laid-back delivery throughout 94 are infectious. The raw talent is definitely there. Early favourites are “In The Flesh”, “What Made You”, and “Destiny”. Stream and download the 94 EP below.
Soul Khan just dropped the fourth and final instalment in his tribute series to Coltrane’s A Love Supreme with the Psalm EP.
