[EP] August Rigo – “Summer of ’95″

summer-of-95-august-rigo

Toronto artist/songwriter August Rigo, has officially rang in the summer with an EP full of RnB throwback anthems from the 90′s to share. The five-track project which he titled Summer of ’95 showcases his creativity on each track as he gracefully takes popular ballads and gives them a new age feel. You may not be too familiar with the name August but some of his work has surely caught your ear before as he has written songs for artists such as; Justin Bieber, One Direction, Musiq Soulchild and JLS to name a few.

“This was the time that really nurtured me musically. It shaped how I think, write, produce, and was basically my first experience with actually falling in love with songs. No politics, no charts, just CDs and playlists and singing at the top of my lungs. I put together this project for a couple reasons: one, to merge some classic R & B with contemporary production; but also, to re-introduce myself.”

Take a listen to his project below and let us know what you think.

Talib Kweli brings the people that feel good music with his latest video, “Whats Real.” “Whats Real” does a great job of showing how music brings people of all different backgrounds together; hip hop heads, band geeks and hipsters are all seen vibing out to Talib’s rhymes. Canadian producers represented hard on Kweli’s latest project, “GRAVITAS.” “What’s Real” features production from Toronto’s own Rich Kidd, and T.O’s LordQuest also has production credits on the album.

[Podcast] Blacastan talks “Watson & Holmes”

Blacastan Podcast on The Come Up Show

We’ve got a special edition of The Come Up Show Podcast for y’all this week. One of our representatives, Bill Beamin, was in contact with Army of the Pharaohs’ own, Blacastan. The “rhyme master” himself is due to release a collaborative album with heavyweight Stu Bangas. As a duo, the team has taken to the aliases “Watson & Holmes,” which is also the name of their upcoming album, as well as the track to their first feature music video.

Listen in while Blacastan describes what got him into the culture, how he chose the name Blacastan, and much more. As one of the premier underground emcees in today’s Hip-Hop landscape, Blacastan is able to shed light on working with legends like Vinnie Paz and Celph Titled (who both feature on the lead single “Nubian Metal). However, more importantly, as a man who grew up where Hip-Hop began, Blac subtly sheds light on some of the unwritten rules in the game…
