[Audio] Quake Matthews ft. JRDN – “Suitcase” (Prod: Cory LeRue)

Suitcase

Quake Matthews is back with his Myth Monday campaign. This time, teaming up with JRDN; an incredibly talented singer from Halifax. Whenever Quake and JRDN team up, they always create something crazy! With Cory LeRue on the production as well, “Suitcase” is an instant hit. This is one that needs some spins all over the radio. Quake Matthews has been going hard dropping tracks every Monday and as each one is released, I get more and more excited for the next week. Quake has always been one of my favorite Canadian emcee’s so I find myself waking up anxious to hear what he’s about to drop. If you haven’t been following Myth Mondays, I’d check his page to get caught up! “Suitcase” is one for anyone who’s ever been contemplating leaving a relationship they’re in. The guitar by Josh Kelly is a nice addition as well. Check out “Suitcase” from Quake Matthews featuring JRDN and let me know your favorite track from Myth Monday’s so far.

[Audio] Jimmy B – “Public Service Announcement”

Jimmy B - PSA

For his birthday, Jimmy B let loose a “Public Service Announcement” with one thing in mind, “I’m tired of all the bullshit ass rappers rapping about bullshit”. Shouting out the whole SmashMouth Entertainment team, Jimmy B spazzes out for four minutes straight. If you haven’t taken in L.O.R.D.S. from Jimmy B, I highly suggest you do as well. Take in “Public Service Announcement” and see why Jimmy B is the truth!

[Audio] Drake – “Draft Day”

Draft Day

Drizzy surprised us with a brand new track last night and as always, Drake goes in! “Draft Day” set over a smooth sampled instrumental, Drake gives some bars like “if I left the shit to chance, I would’ve picked a name like Chance the Rapper”. After taking home the Rap Recording of the Year at the Juno’s for Nothing Was The Same, “Draft Day” is almost a celebratory track. Let me know what you think, do you think Drizzy went in on “Draft Day”?

[Audio] Quake Matthews ft. Emanny – “2nd Guessing” (Prod: 2oolman)

Second Guessing

It’s Myth Monday and for week four, Quake Matthews gets deep with “2nd Guessing” featuring Emanny. If you’ve ever second guessed a major decision in life, this one is definitely something you can relate to, whether it be life choices, career moves, wanting to have a child, smoking weed or even the relationship you’re in. Quake touches on a ton of subjects like that on this smooth 2oolman production. Whenever they link up, the outcome is amazing. Adding Emanny to the mix makes it even more so. Who you might recognize from a ton of Joe Budden songs. Take in Quake’s fourth Myth Monday release, “2nd Guessing” and let me know if you can relate to this one and in which way.

[Audio] Jimmy B ft. AJ Cooper & Richie Blackz – “Doggy Style”

Doggystyle

On Saturday during The Come Up Show radio, we premiered a big tune from the homie Jimmy B featuring AJ Cooper and London’s own Richie Blackz. They linked up in support of the SmashMouth Mentality show in London this Saturday, put together by the homie Tyler from The Consignment Show. Which includes everyone from SmashMouth Entertainment like The Antiheroes, Jimmy B, DillanPonders, SeT, The Bass6, as well as Richie Blackz, Jay Downz, Haviah Mighty, EGAA and DJ DoubleDown will be on the 1′s and 2′s all night! If you’ve ever been to a club when he’s spinning, you know what to expect already.

“Doggy Style”, is a west-coast influenced track, bringing some warm vibes as it snows yet again today. This is one collaboration I didn’t expect to see, so it was a surprise when it came together and what came out of it, a summer banger. Jimmy B, AJ Cooper and Richie Blackz all go in on their verses. I’m hoping they jump on stage together and do this track on Saturday live. Come out to The APK this weekend if you want to see the same thing. It won’t be nothing less than epic. To help make up your mind, check out Jimmy B’s new single featuring AJ Cooper and Richie Blackz, “Doggy Style”. It ain’t no fun if the homie’s can’t get none!

[Audio] Quake Matthews – “Last Supper” (Prod: 2oolman)

Last Supper

Yesterday was Myth Monday! Quake Matthews’s heavy campaign every week that brought us bangers like “Puffy 4 The Knight” and “Red Wine” featuring Laura Roy. This week Quake hops on a 2oolman production (2oolman was a part of Boi-1da’s TeamTO at SXSW this year) and every time they link up, it’s epic. “Last Supper” can attest to that. The double time Quake’s flows on this is insane too! Take in this weeks Myth Monday release “Last Supper” which you can download as well – who would pass on something like that?

[Audio] JAY Z & Jay Electronica- “We Made It Remix”

Jay Electronica @ Manifesto

“Sorry Mr. Drizzy for so much art talk/ Silly me, rappin’ about shit that I really bought/ While these rappers rap about guns, they ain’t shot/ And a bunch of other silly shit that’ ain’t got” JAY Z

The last time Hov and Jay Electronica collaborated was on “Shiny Suit Theory” which was four years ago. Out of nowhere today we get the Roc Nation members spitting over Soulja Boy and Drake’s We Made It. JAY Z answers Drake back regarding his comments on his Rolling Stone magazine interview when Drake made fun of rappers talking about art pieces. Take this in and let me know what you think and if you are happy to hear back from Jay Electronica, I know I am.

[Audio] Elaquent – “Yesssss. (Floetry Say Yes Remix)”

Floetry

If you’re a frequent visitor of any online magazine or blog covering new music, you’ll know that remixes of late 90s/early 00s RnB tracks are a dime a dozen. Luckily for us, Elaquent blessed us with a non-bastardized, non-trap remix of the delicious “Say Yes” by Floetry. Compared to the original, there’s a lot more activity, mainly centered around the broken percussion and groovy bassline but Elaquent managed to preserve the neo-soul essence of the track and give it his own swing. There’s a clear Dilla influence here which only made me love the track more. Listen below.

[Audio] Keno – “Precious”

Keno

London’s young up and comer Keno is prepping to drop his second project after his first successful release First Coming. Due out sometime this summer, Keno drops the first single “Precious”. Being a young talented artist, I’m stoked to see what Keno comes out with next, First Coming was hype and it can only get better. Check out Keno’s single for the ladies, “Precious” and let me know what you think!

[Audio] Greg Owens ft. Shawn “The Iceberg” Frank & Jovan – “Mo Bounce” (Prod: Greg Owens)

mo bounce

Greg Owens released a brand new single not to long ago featuring Shawn “The Iceberg” Frank and Jovan. “Mo Bounce” has an old school vibe, that will have you almost jumping around. Definitely that feel good music. Greg Owens has his self-titled project coming out soon, The Greg Owens Project so if you’re feeling this, I’d stay locked in for that to come soon. Let me know what Greg Owens new track “Mo Bounce” reminds you of below.

[Audio] Shad – “Koko B Ware”

Shad - Koko B Ware

Here’s one to close out the night for you. Yesterday, Shad released an amazing dub over Action Bronson’s instrumental “Strictly For My Jeeps” – which is sampled from Lowell Fulsom’s “Tramp” record. Harry Fraud definitely does his thing with the instrumental. When Shad gets on something, you know it’s going to be nothing short of amazing, fun and you’ll more than likely walk away learning something or two as well. Take in Shad’s dub “Koko B Ware” after his write up for the track.

DJ T Lo sent me this Action Bronson beat last week and asked me to rap on it… I was like, “Koko B Ware’s in the ring…”
