KAi Sky Walker releases “Dopamine”, the first official single off his up coming project, New Mind | Old Soul: Chapter V. Sky Walker laces the sinister beat from younger brother Astor, showcasing his razor sharp delivery and flow. The song also includes a mix at the end featuring samples from hits by Bobby Shmurda, Ludacris, Mystikal & Jagged Edge.
I mentioned the other day when TassNata dropped “Walking Away” that he had a new joint coming this week. That time has come. Before Mourning, an album TassNata has been secretly working on for the past while is near completion. Personally, I can be more excited. Which is why I’m happy to premiere this new tune and the first single off Before Mourning – “For The Summer” featuring Junia-T & Iman Omari. Produced by Snazz, this ode to summertime is one to cap off what was an amazing summer. For myself, TassNata, Junia-T, Iman Omari and without a doubt all of you! Though this isn’t your ordinary summer tune. This is a crack the bottle, vibe out kind of tune. “Summer nights I like a fire with the music loud. Rapping, I amuse the crowd, what happens as I move around”. This one is for the summer! We’ll probably party til the suns up! As the warm weather fades, this couldn’t be a more perfect joint to capture those last moments. Don’t take it all from me though, TassNata spoke on what his summer was like in LA with Junia-T, gave us an exclusive behind the scenes story from the video shoot for “For The Summer” and more! *There’s also some exclusive pictures from their time over there you can peep!*
Take a listen after the jump!

Bad Nuze teams up with Rapper Big Pooh from Little Brother and G.O.O.D musics CyHi The Prynce for the socially conscious track, “Fight.” Bad Nuze drops a passionate commentary on racial discrimination, which is delivered over Derelle Rideout‘s jazzy keys and synth-brass instrumental. CyHi and Big Pooh add some hot 16′s to the track as well, adding some additional flair to the “Fight Remix.” This track is off Nuze’s recent release, The Liez and Rumorz LP. Check the “Fight Remix,” below, and hit the full article for the Liez and Rumorz LP
While, it’s about that time. Since TassNata dropped A Mixtape In 48 Hours, he’s been silent on what is to come next. We seen him drop some bars on an amazing track with the Smash Bruvas the other day, and now he hits us with a quick freestyle he did earlier today while on the road. Quoting TassNata, “I just recorded one of my realest verses in here, but it’s not for my album”. This couldn’t be any truer.
“See I know the place I’m headed, but it changes by the second. Independent where I’m stepping, that could be the death of me to exit. Destiny, forget it. I don’t know if I believe in heaven. Channel 7 watch the news. All the evil shit we do.”
That right there is enough to show you how real this verse is. Looking for some peace of mind, TassNata takes a look at the world we live in and the unjust and evil things that go on everyday. Wishing to see away from that, because our children need to see the world for how beautiful it can be.
Fresh off the release of the Indigo Child LP, Raury sat down with NW3radio to discuss his upbringing which molded him into the artist we see today, his spiritual beliefs in light of his song “God’s Whisper”, his signature hat and much more. If you haven’t listen to Indigo Child, be sure to check the project out!
Adria Kain gives us a taste of what goes on in the depths of her mind with “Higher”. She speaks nostalgically on her experiences growing up in the suburbs of Burlington, ON. to moving into the city of Toronto, realizing that none of these places are really where she wants to be. Facing challenges and hard times along the way, Kain keeps us uplifted by reassuring us that regardless of what she goes through, her determination to succeed and make it higher is never ending. The song also keeps the mood high with its uptempo, rhythmic & trap like sounds. You can expect this song and more on Adria’s highly anticipated album entitled “Island In My Mind”, set to release later this fall.
Manifesto’s ongoing goal is to help support and develop well-rounded young artists in Toronto, and arm them with the tools to succeed. With this vision in mind, Manifesto developed a 4 class curriculum, entitled The Mentor Class Series, carried out over this past November, December & January. The classes took place in the basement of Manifesto’s office at 37 Bulwer St, and were a resounding success. Each class was moderated by David “Click” Cox, and included expert panelists like Illangelo, Rich Kidd, Skratch Bastid, Gaurav Sawhney, Katrina Lopes, Cameron Wright, and many more… From there we invited young artists who attended the classes to record at Dream House Studios and this month we will be showcasing some of the work recorded.
