[Video] Charley Moon – “Billion $ Regime” (Dir: Charley Moon and Laz Vagez)

Charley Moon Billion Regime

Charley Moon’s new video for his track, “Billion $ Regime” (Rich in Spirit) is both simplistic and yet powerful. Contrasting present day with black and white images of war, oppression, racism, brutality, and even images of a younger Nelson Mandela, Charley Moon compliments the track’s own message. “Billion $ Regime” is about the capitalization of struggling, poor decisions, consumerism and the way in which money turns us away from love and life. What he is trying to get at is that money is merely an illusion; and while he may not be rich with money, he knows he is rich in spirit.

I really like the end of the track, when Charley Moon uses the audio from a journalist’s interview with Bob Marley about the importance of money, showing the huge contrasts in opinion about what money really means:

“How much is a lot of money to you?”
“That’s a good question.”
“Have you made, say, millions of dollars?”
“No.”
“Are you a rich man?”
“When you mean rich, what you mean?”
“you have a lot of possessions? Lot of money in the bank?”
“Possession make you rich? I don’t have that type of richness. My richness is life, forever.”

Bam! A beautiful ending to the track.

Charley Moon will be releasing his new album AOE in the near future.

[Staff Lists] The Come Up Show’s Favourite Concerts of 2013

FavouriteConcerts2013

Seeing your favourite artist(s) live in concert is truly an experience like no other. It’s the ultimate fan involvement where you (and possibly) a group of friends set out on a particular evening to catch your favourite rapper performing in your city. Whether you’ve seen numerous events or only a handful, the feelings that we get from interacting a few feet away from these individuals is undeniably exciting. Last year, The Come Up Show had the privilege of attending numerous concerts from artists including, Classified, Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Ferg, Shad, Kanye West, Method Man, SonReal, Kendrick Lamar, and many more. Now, we present to you The Come Up Show’s Favourite Concerts of 2013.

Read the full list after the jump.

[Mixtape] Jyrome Good – “Ethereal”

Ethereal Jyrome Good

Jyrome Good, Jyrome Good. What can I say that hasn’t already been said.

I have been waiting for this new mixtape more impatiently than I’d like to admit, and my waiting has really paid off. As we’ve heard in his single, “Ocean 2″, Good knows how to bring the ethereal to your mind- and your ears. From Brampton, Ontario, he does it by blending spacey, zoning, haunting sounds with R&B and trap beats over his silky and at times, crooning, pained voice. Take this mixtape however you want- as Slow Jamz, as Hip-Hop, as Alternative, as Indie, as Tyrese in Space- whatever genre you try to shove it in, it won’t work. This mixtape is something new, and something desperately needed in breaking down rigid genres boundaries. There are lots of love songs on this mixtape that take swooning to a new level- this isn’t your ordinary, superficial love song. These are the kind of love songs that are so emotionally charged and heartfelt that they’ll hit you straight in the gut (I sense a very large female population coming his way). My favourites are “Another World”, “Ocean 2″, “Living Post Mind”, and the bonus track, “Daze”.

So you get the point, I really love this mixtape. Jyrome Good definitely kept his promise- he delivered a truly ethereal-sounding album. It works amazingly well for him.

[Video] Pusha T ft. Ab Liva – “Suicide” (Dir: Nathan Brown)

Pusha T ft. Ab Liva - "Suicide"

Suicide, it’s a suicide. King Push is back with another set of visuals off his solo debut studio album, My Name Is My Name. Directed by Nathan Brown and produced by Pharrell Williams, the track is reminiscent of the notorious Neptunes sound in which we’re all familiar with. Watch Pusha T in “Suicide” featuring Ab Liva below.

[Mixtape] Ace Hood – “Starvation 3″

Starvation3

Ace Hood is still looking to feed his hunger as he releases the third instalment in his widely popular Starvation series. The 14-track project includes features from label mates Vado and Mavado as well as Kevin Cossom. Production comes courtesy of Beat Billionaire, Reazy Renegade, Street Runner, Beat Bully and more. Stream/download Starvation 3 after the jump.

[Video] Childish Gambino ft. Chance the Rapper – “The Worst Guys ” (Dir: Kyle Newacheck)

Childish Gambino
This video Originally leaked back in December when Gambino Dropped his video for “3005” off his latest Album, Because The Internet. . The Chance The Rapper assisted single “The Worst Guys” is now available for fans to view. This is the 3rd collaboration between Chance and Donald. Chance does not have a verse but performs the hook with CG. Spending a day at the beach sounds ideal right about now, but us Canadians stuck in the snow will have to live vicariously through these Gambino visuals.

[Staff Lists] The Come Up Show’s Favourite Interviews of 2013

The Come Up Show Favourite interview of 2013

When you read the title of this post, you might think this article is a collection of interviews from all over the web; that would be true if we didn’t publish our own original interviews. To toot our own horn for a second, The Come Up Show gained its popularity as a radio show and website through our insightful interviews. We started first on the radio show, then doing audio interviews at events, and then expanded to video interviews which definitely heightened our visibility in the blogging world. This past year we’ve conducted over 55 original interviews with legends from Just Blaze and Young Guru to Canadian stars such as Shad, Classified, Maestro Fresh Wes and many more. You might have missed a few and that’s why we include this category into our Best of 2013. Without further ado, The Come Up Show presents our favourite interview of 2013.

[Video] The HMC- “Cold Blooded Cypher” (Dir. Mr.X)

hmc

The Hive Mind Collective (HMC) is a crew of like minded MC’s who are looking to lay a foundation for progressive rap. The crew comes together through a very organic process. Dayne Xavier Hunt, aka Mr. X, explained to us that he first met the founder of the HMC, Daimon Miles, while at a freestyle cypher at a house party. The pair quickly found their styles complemented one another, with rhymes focusing on the consciousness of the real world, politics, historical events, and religious based raps. A week after the initial meeting, the two started working together in the studio, laying down ideas for a group project. Daimon introduced Mr. X to YS a couple weeks later while on vacation. After hearing all three of their unique styles together it seemed inevitable that they would start representing the three MC’s as a collective, with a name that gave meaning to their style, The Hive Mind Collective. Each artist brings a different element of rapping to the table, allowing each member to feed off of different perspectives, and move towards the same goal. Daimon Miles, Mr. X, Royal Blue, Y5 and K.and Jotham make up the HMC group. Take in their Cold Blooded cypher to see the crew at work!

[Video] SchoolBoy Q – “Man Of The Year” (Dir: Dave Free & APlusFilmz)

SchoolBoy Q - "Man Of The Year"
