[Audio] Staalin – “Grand Entrance”


Lets see how much of an impact Toronto hip-hop has been on you because lets face it, there are dudes who have put in the ground work, fighting to make Toronto the scene it is today. Me growing up, I was adapt to dudes like Staalin, Tona, Mayhem, JD Era, Rich Kidd, Sese, Drake etc etc. The list could go on. If you know me, I usually only bump Canadian artists wherever. With Iron Kurtain 3: Man of Steel on the way, Staalin drops “Grand Entrance”, the introduction to the project.

This controversial – lyrical assault, seemingly targets several rappers in Staalin’s native town of Toronto, leaving many people asking; who will be next on his hit list?

Chris Brown has delivered the title track to his long-awaited album, X, dropping on September 16th. Breezy looks back on his past relationships and vows to move on over the slow-moving R&B single which quickly transitions into a fast-paced EDM beat. Listen to ‘X,” produced by Diplo.

[Video] Daimon Miles – Young Noah (Directed By JTRUE)


Hive Mind Collective emcee Daimon Miles drops his first music video, “Young Noah.” “Young Noah,” is the perfect introduction to what talent the Hamilton emcee can bring to the game. From the jump, Miles lets the listeners know that he is a student of the game, and is looking to bring back that thought provoking hip hop that the heads are searching for. The opening lines alone sum up the state of hip hop today; and this dude is looking to shake things up. Miles and the HMC are a team to keep your eyes on. Be sure to check this track out, as well as the previous HMC cyphers.

“my words are thearaputic, the music is soul medicne/ rappers got flows, but they lyrics aint got no message in em”.

[Audio] Sisqo feat. Waka Flocka- “A-List”


This is really happening folks. After a 13 year hiatus, the Dru Hill front man is making a return to the music scene. Sisqo throws us a curve ball by connecting with none other than Waka Flocka for his come back track, “A-List.” Sisqo lets the people know that his celebrity status hasn’t cooled down since his departure from the game, as he boast about the finer things in life that his “A-List” status yields. Waka brings the energy on this track, and though its an unlikely collab, “A-list” turned out to be a pretty tight track. I’m excited to see Sisqo back in action; after listening this one, it’s safe to say that dude may still have some hits left in him. Look for this single to hit iTunes on September 9th, as well as on his upcoming album, The Last Dragon. The full audio for the track is below, as well as the sneak peek to the video.
