I be on that “Small Town Sh*t”. Richie Blackz and Casper The Ghost, two close friends of The Come Up Show team up over a banging Mazur production, for a track that anyone from a small town can relate too. As two promising emcees, alone they dominate. Together, it’s a whole new subject. Not much need be said for this one, although there is a video on the way very soon! With Richie working on a project, Casper working on a project – only time will tell what comes next. For now, take in “Small Town” and get in tune with the talent London, Ontario has to offer.
A- Fos gets “back to his ignorant side” with his latest banger,”Drugs & Hoes,” featuring the homie Branded Moore. “Drugs and Hoes” sums up everything that we love about rap music. Hip hop heads are always on the look out for an emcee who drops those conscious raps to vibe out with; but at the same time we have the need to bump bangers, turn up and get ignant. A- Fos and Moore have found a perfect balance with this latest record. Be on the look out for A-Fos solo album, dropping soon.
As we celebrate the start to 2015, Kanye West chose this opportune time to release,”Only One,” a minimal, auto tuned laced track featuring Paul McCartney on the keys. Written from the perspective of Kanye’s late mother Donda, who passed in 2007 from surgery complications, “Only One” sounds like a continuation of Yeezies 808’s & Heartbreak. Rumors of a McCartney/West collaboration began appearing last August, when the two recorded a song allegedly called “Piss on Your Grave” that has yet to surface. All I know is that my wish has been granted; new Kanye music to start off 2015.
After making his debut with “Everything’s Okay” featuring Casper The Ghost. Dizzle K hits us with the second single off his anticipated project #LOUD produced by Scott Styles from the UK.

Emerging R&B artist 11.Xi, from Toronto – just dropped a tune for that late night vibe, that 1 AM sh*t. When she hits you late night, looking to chill. Produced by himself, the slow vibe is one you can relax to, pour up a drink and see where the night goes. Vibe out with 11.xi into the early morning, the night is still young at 1 AM.
Toronto’s own, Plus Mo goes in on a new track, “For The Taking”. This switches things up from “All We Wanna Do (Party Tonight)” just a bit, but shows the versatility as an artist. The big homie Plus Mo gets deep on “For The Taking”. This game is for the taking, take a listen to who’s about to come out on top.
As you know, Shad an his DJ, DJ T.Lo have been working on a project together called Boarding Pass. Something they came up with together while on tour promoting Shad’s latest album Flying Colours. A five song EP entirely produced by DJ T.Lo with Shad doing what Shad does best, dropping knowledge on the mic. “Hang On” is a gem that is by far one of the best songs I’ve heard all month. Shad touches on some topics like today’s music scene with lines like “maybe they ain’t playing too much music on Much Music because there ain’t too much music out here with much to it. When the music plays we ain’t saying too much through it, we just after the ads. We just do it.” It doesn’t end there though, Shad is known for substance in his music and there is no lack of that on “Hang On”. I won’t say too much though, I’ll just let the music speak for itself.
