With D A R K S K Y P A R A D I S E hot off the press, Big Sean drops some spooky visuals for the Drizzy and Kanye West assisted single, “Blessings.” Collecting (arguably) the three hottest emcees in the game right now on the same track, its safe to say that Big Sean cut no corners on the follow up to “IDFWU.” Big Sean is on his way to solidifying his legacy in the hip hop game; anyone who thought Sean Don would just be a flash in the pan is probably reconsidering that statement.

Frank Douglas has got to be one of the hardest working emcees I’ve come across. Bars,he’s got them for days. Videos,self directed and edited, no problem. Bottom line, dude keeps it, “100.” Every rapper aspires to keep their craft, “100,” authentic, and true to the art of hip hop. In a game where everyone is hustling to make it to the top, if you don’t keep it “100,” you gotta take it back to the drawing board. This quick short shot by KwadwoMawlif and Frank lets the people know what dedication really is. Peep Franks first of several short cuts, “100,” and hit the full article to peep the video for Richie Dolo & Frank Douglas, “It’s Okay.”
Every track this dude releases is fire, and reaffirms why I mess with him so much. Allan is back at it with this latest release,”27.” If you’re ever in the need to find mood music, Allan has you covered. His growing catalog of hits are the perfect soundtrack for any emotion; you want to mellow out, Allan’s got you…feeling particularly angsty, no sweat your bases are covered. “27” is the third single from Mr. Rayman’s forthcoming LP, Hotel Allan.

For the second year in a row our boy Casper was chosen to be the half time performance for the Provincial Fighting Championship. To mark this occasion, Cas released his latest video, “Ready To Rumble,” which documents the events leading up to championship fights, and Casper’s live performance in front of thousands of fans. This video is dedicated to R.J Rattz. Be sure to check Casper’s latest video, and share your thoughts below.
Canadian Hip-Hop has been constantly shocking the international culture since it’s involvement. Now, another example has arrived from Toronto as M.O. Littles new single, “What I Live For”. The song was released off his latest project, “Welcome To The Shot Club”. The title “What I Live For” brings out a couple notable features to cosign, which both Aspects and Sicknature (SnowGoons) are qualified to do. Combined, the three represent a wealth of knowledge in manoeuvring the business world of hip-hop both locally, and internationally.

Remember when this joint dropped last year? “Born In Toronto”. A monumental moment. The pioneer of Canadian hip-hop and one of this generations favorites link up to talk about their city. Toronto. There’s a certain feeling you get when you enter the city, being from London I know that feeling well. The diversity, the aura the city gives off, the skyline; you can’t go one day in Toronto without seeing something new and innovative. I once talked with a homie from the city about it, and he said “when New York hit their hundredth year, that’s when they really starting shaping what it was as a city. Toronto is on it’s hundredth year, imagine how much we can change an inspire moving forward. The city is filled with life and everyday people are pushing their potential to it’s limits. I can’t wait to see where the city is in another twenty years”. So true. Going back and forth, Maestro and Rich Kidd let you know about Toronto. All eyes are on Toronto musically and both of them said it best, “in the 80’s outsiders used to sleep on Toronto, now they all want heat from Toronto/ now they all want beats from Toronto, but they can’t get em’ cheap from Toronto”.
Let me get you prepared for this. Linking up with Locksmith and Hopsin for “Killing My Soul” off Slow Motion, Jarren Benton unleashes some powerful visuals as each weighs the cons of this industry. You already know each emcee brings it one hundred and ten percent, so there’s nothing but bars on this one. Being real to who you are with artistry is a must. I don’t like to throw it out too much but music like this is timeless. Salute to these three!
