[Audio] Mick Jenkins- “Your Love” (Prod. Kaytranada)


Mick Jenkins hits us with one of his newest tracks “Your Love” from his Wave[S] EP. With production from the great Kaytranada the two work together to create a next level head snapping tune that will be stuck in your head for weeks to come.

Mick Jenkins is an American emcee hailing from Chicago, Illinois. Coming right off of his The Water[S] tour, as well as the release of his Wave[S] EP which dropped on August 21st, 2015. Mick likes to keep his collaborations within his inner circle, and has worked with artist such as: Sean Deaux, Saba, and TheMind. Kaytranada, the Haitian-Canadian electronic musician has a huge music catalog, and has wrked with endless amounts of artists. Kaytranada’s production credits span all  the way from Goldlink, Vic Mensa, Towkio, Freddie Gibbs, The Internet, and many, many more.

“Your Love” starts off with a focus on Kaytranada’s pristine funk inspired production before Mick does his thing over the beat. The first time you hear Mick on the track he is bringing in his deep gritty lyrics that he  handles oh so well before the hook makes its mark in the most catchy way possible. The production holds the greatest aspects of old school hip-hop production with elements of the new school courtesy of Kaytranada’s polished aesthetic.The chemistry between Mick and Kaytranada has not gone unnoticed. The two should definitely consider working together more often, a Jenkins X Kaytranada EP would be earth shattering.

Mick is a force to be reckoned with to say the least, he’s just getting started with his art but has already picked up the momentum and fan base that many artists would take twice, or even three times as long to match. How do you feel about Mick’s EP Wave[S]? Let us know in the comments section. If You’re feeling the production as well, Kaytranada is performing in Toronto on September 18th at Danforth Music Hall, don’t miss out.

[Video] C Dot Castro- “F*ck About You” (Dir. Adam McArthur)

The Gaithersburg, Maryland emcee known as C Dot Castro is back with the visual for “F*ck About You“, from his positively received mixtape “DOT” (Don’t Over Think). With production from longtime collaborator Jae Faive, and visual direction from Adam McArthur, Castro has surely brought out all the stops for this mellow track that can’t be ignored.

Castro, one of the founding members of The RattPack, featuring fellow emcee Logic, and longtime friend Big Lenbo has been releasing solo cuts for years before dropping his debut mixtape “DOT”. C Dot Castro had an impressively loyal following before dropping his debut, and his fanbase has only grown stronger since.

“F*ck About You” starts off with a focus on the head bopping production courtesy of Jae Faive, before Castro’s smooth hook takes center stage. The chorus, which states “I care way too much about me to give a f*ck about you” screams independence. Castro is learning that he doesn’t have to worry about other people, he can live life the way he wishes, and he’s more than okay with that. The mellow vibes associated with the track are refreshing, with Castro taking the road seldom taken. Castro also rips up the production when his verses come into play, surprising any listener expecting soft lyrics after the mellow chorus. Castro brings the heat. The visuals directed by Adam McArthur show Castro chilling on some mountains by the water, all in all having a good time, this relates to the subject matter quite well, as Castro’s not worrying about anyone else, just himself.

If you’re feeling what C Dot Castro is laying down, check out his latest track “One Too” featuring Earlly Mac, with production from Jae Faive. Castro is gearing up to be raps next big thing, so I wouldn’t sleep on him. Castro is making moves and the worlds starting to notice.

[Video] K Jotham feat. Daimon Miles – “Mirrors” (Prod. Kooleidoscope)


The HMC crew is back at it with the K Jotham and Daimon Miles assisted single, “Mirrors.” Coming off the success of, “Make It Home,” this latest release proves to be just as dope. The “Mirrors” short finds K Jotham and Daimon Miles making their way through a run down dilapidated house; seemingly symbolic to the tracks content. Pulling from past experiences of despair and struggle, Jotham and Miles shed light to their grind over the eerie Kooleidoscope produced instrumental, bringing us a track that everyone can relate to on one level or another. What I dig most about The HMC is the fact that they are always coming with that real life mood music. Jotham and Miles are brutally honest and unapologetic on this joint right here; nothing is sugar coated.

I’m sure there are a million emcees out there who wish they could have snagged this location for their video shoot. The “Mirrors” video looks like its been pulled right out of a Wes Craven flick. I’m always stoked when the HMC releases new content. This crew always ups the ante with their songs and visuals making them one of the most exciting rosters in the game. “Mirrors” is haunting, captivating and above all else dope. Be sure to check out the HMC’s latest, and as always, show some love in the comment section below.



With R&B at its height of popularity in Toronto and the GTA, there has been an emergence of talent to meet the demand. One particular new R&B artist that really stands out is K. Forest.  Born and raised in Brampton, Ontario, K. Forest has always had a passion for music. His love for the art pushed him to find his niche, and with enough searching he found it. 

During the course of this year, K. Forest spent month after month creating and perfecting his sound. Inspired by 80’s R&B, pop culture and overall aesthetic, INTROVERSION was the result. Polished, ethereal, and bright, K. Forest and his lone collaborator/producer/engineer dF delivered a product of compelling contrast.

Expressing deep emotion on a pessimistic theme of introspection while laying an upbeat, glossy, and cheerful foundation underneath. The combination of the two complimented his innocent and serene vocals, which can be found on the opening track “Prelude” and the following “Season Recline”.

Selecting four of his best tracks, INTROVERSION is a cathartic experience that educates you on K. Forest’s Ideologies and refined perspective of pop music.
