[Video] Riyality ft. Glenn Travis- “That Way” (Dir. The Trenches Media Inc.)

Snap back to Riyality. Pickering, Ontario hip-hop crew Sentral Soldiers member Riyality just dropped a new visual entitled “That Way” featuring Glenn Travis, and it’s dripping with good vibes. With visual direction from “The Trenches Media Inc.”, Riyality is working to boost his online presence as a solo artist, one separate from Sentral Soldiers.

Along with the Soldiers, Riyality has had the pleasure of playing hundreds of shows, and has even opened for the likes of: Classified, Machine Gun Kelly, Xzibit, Swollen Members, R.A. The Rugged Man, and many others. Along with the recording of his own music, Riyality has also opened a music studio in Ajax, Ontario with the Sentral Soldiers entitled “The Palace”, it is here where they are learning how to work behind the boards with numerous other recording artists.

“That Way” starts off with an acoustic inspired beat that transforms as Riyality jumps in with his catchy flow. Riyality sounds so comfortable on the beat, which flows right into the impressive hook and perfectly matched production. The three aspects of the track work together to to really exemplify the already stellar vibes that are associated with the track.

Keep doing exactly what you’re doing Riyality, because we “like it that way”. I would also like to mention that I’ve been singing the hook in my head ever since I first heard this track. Well done.

[Audio] Derin Falana- “Vacation” (Prod. Po, & The Technician)


Derin Falana,  the Brampton, Ontario based emcee previously known as “The Flan” is back with a new track entitled “Vacation“. Produced by frequent collaborator Po, as well as The Technician, Derin visualizes his ideal trip away from his worries in this summer tune.

After dropping “Interstellar” just one month ago, and the visual for his track “Wit’it“, Derin decided it was time to unleash some new fire. It’s hard to believe that it’s almost been half a year since Derin dropped his positively received debut mixtape “905“, but with a name change and numerous hits between then and now, it’s surely been a big year for the Brampton based emcee.

“Vacation” starts off with a focus on the Po, & The Technicians production, while Derin jumps in right as the beat drops. Derin’s easy going lyrics and flow mesh perfectly with the summer vibes that the production brings. The hook also emulates some summertime emotions which feel oh so right. Considering the season is coming to an end, and we’re all clinging to whats left of beach season, find some time to bring this track with you, and finally make it to that vacation you’ve been waiting for.

Derin Falana has a way with his tracks. It’s almost as though you can feel how comfortable he is on the beat, and it translates into some confident bars. After hearing about his name change, I was worried that The Flan was no more. I’ve never been so happy to be wrong.

[Audio] Vic Mensa- “I Been” (Prod. Smoko Ono & Mike Dean)


Hyde Park, Chicago emcee Vic Mensa lets us know what he’s been up to on his new track “I Been“, produced by Smoko Ono, and Mike Dean. Vic lays his bars down over some hard hitting production, showing his versatility on the track.

Victor Mensah has been known to work with some legendary artists such as: Kanye West on “U Mad“, and “Wolves“, as well as his track “No Chill” featuring the ever talented producer Skrillex. In addition, he’s also collaborated with the rising star Chance the Rapper, and was on the 2014 edition of XXL’s Freshman Class. With 2 mixtapes under his belt, “Straight Up“, and “INNANETAPE“, as well as an internationally known track entitled “Down On My Luck“, Vic is doing quite well for someone who was just named a freshman.

“I Been” starts off with Vic and his vocals, which serves as an introduction to whats to come. Before long the production courtesy of Smoko Ono and Mike Dean, with additional production by Carter Lang & Papi Beatz, brings a hard hitting element to the track at the perfect time. Vic tends to bend words at will, showing different angles of his versatility, combined with his confident lyrics.

Vic is gearing up for his debut album entitled “Traffic” which is slated for a 2015-2016 release. Since before his signing to Roc-a-Fella Records, and Roc Nation, Vic has been on a win streak. One that doesn’t seem like it’s going to end anytime soon.
