Imagine you just won a very unexpected Juno award and it’s Saturday night, what is your first choice of drink?
If you missed our original behind the scenes coverage of the Juno Awards I’d suggest you take it in. You will appreciate the bonus cuts that I’ll be releasing in the coming week. The first video is from my interview with Tona and Adam Bomb they take us to the exact moment when their names were announced as the winners of the Rap Recording of the Year. They share if winning the Juno Awards does anything for their motivation and Tona explains what his favourite drink Tiger Blood consists of and yes, what their choice of drink would be.
I’m proud to present our second interview with the homie Big Sean! The first interview was four years ago in Toronto and this time around we caught up with him in London during his Canadian Tour. Big Sean speaks on the times he was full of fear and impatience coming up as an artist and why he feels the journey is just as important as the prize. Big Sean also shared his excitement of performing at this years OVO Fest and how he measures success. The interview ended off with a question if Big Sean had $100 million would he still be hungry as an artist? What do you think? Would you?

I am proud to present our coverage of the Juno Awards 2015 in Hamilton, Ontario. The award categories of interest were the Rap and R&B/Soul Recording of The Year. The Weeknd won the latter category but he wasn’t present at the Awards Gala, yo Abel holla at me! I am excited as are plenty of people that the Naturally Born Strangers won Rap Recording of the year. Check out the video which features Adam Bomb, Tona, Tre Mission, JRDN, Muneshine, and SonReal. I’d love to know what you think of our coverage and let me know how you feel that NBS won the Rap Recording of the year.
I recommend listening to the podcast which is a whole different presentation on its own, you’ll find the behind the scenes action, funny interviews and clips that didn’t make the video.
While they were on tour across Canada, we caught up with A-Game, two individuals that happen to be twin brothers. Having something the industry does not have, they give valuable advice on how to take your hustle and apply it south of the border, their beginnings as producers, Drake recognition and wanting to see a lot more unity in the Canadian scene because as they say, this Canadian industry will have you second guessing yourself.

I had a interview scheduled to happen this past weekend and circumstances changed and I was left with no guest. I was going through my laptop to see if there anything I could release and I found my interview Malice one half of The Clipse, who now goes by No Malice.
I originally planned to release the phone interview as a video that would accompany The Clipse music videos and pictures; the video footage was corrupted and I the interview was forgotten about in the shuffle.
When I uploaded the interview to soundcloud it was 12:15pm and the date today is Wednesday March 4, 2015. I wanted to find out exactly when this interview happened, I went through 3 email accounts and I finally found it Wednesday March 3rd, 2010 at 12:15pm. EXACTLY five years and one day have passed, I don’t think its a coincidence and I think this is supposed to happen. Without further ado, I present my interview with No Malice, where he tells me how to separate the real from the fake, how he was a part of the ignorance and foolishness of Hip-Hop, and so much more.
