[Feature] Jorun Bombay: Canadian Hip-Hop’s Forgotten Godfather

Jorun Bombay Feature on The Come Up Show

If you were to cross paths with Jorun Bombay on the streets of Halifax, you’d never know he’s one of the most important figures in Canadian hip-hop history.

The unassuming Haligonian, sporting a dark goatee, a curved baseball hat, and a black t-shirt, would blend in just about anywhere. It’s only fitting that his greatest contribution to Canadian hip-hop has been playing the background role as producer, deejay, and mentor, helping countless other artists – from Juno Award-winner Classified to three-time Scribble Jam champion Skratch Bastid – see the spotlight.

After more than two decades of propelling others to success, however, Jorun’s own spotlight may soon be getting brighter than ever. Read on after the jump.

[Review] Flex The Antihero – “SALEM”

SALEMFinalArtwork

When taking in The Antiheroes it’s clear on any track that they never lack on expressing their opinion, whether the subject is the quality and integrity of music or something community based. Separately, as first experienced on Latex & Perfume ; you experience a more personal side of the two Toronto artist’s Sha Prince and Flex The Antihero. Announcing SALEM was on it’s way just before Sha Prince’s solo project, there was a built anticipation leading up to the first time we heard it. Hands down, once taking it in fully and hitting repeat dozens of times you could tell this is a body of work that you could not get bored listening to. Both SALEM and Latex & Perfume; they stand as a moment in time. First experiencing SALEM it’s seen as what it is, a great in-depth project that is an ode to where Flex grew up which reflects on his past, how he’s moved on pursuing his passion to create music and more. If you look at it for what it could be, it’s a moment in time you can look back to when artist’s like Flex further their success and really look at how far they’ve come.
