[Video] Casper The Ghost – “Ghost N***a” (Dir: ConR)

Casper The Ghost - Ghost Nigga

Casper The Ghost has been on his grind for a long time. I can’t count on two hands how many years he has been consistently working hard. There are many in his corner, and many that haven’t had the opportunity to hear what he has to offer with his music. A story like none other, Casper has been through things in his life no one man should ever have to go through. Though with determination, he is one who always strives for better. Since I first stepped into the local scene in London, Ontario – Casper has always been brought to my attention. From winning an Ontario Freestyle Championship where the final two contestants were him and Tory Lanez. Being the first Canadian emcee to win the Rhyme Calisthenics competition. Opening for every big name to come through the city and tour to various towns to make sure he is heard.

Hit the jump to check out an exclusive one on one with Casper and see his new video “Ghost N***a”.

[Audio] Fabolous – “B.A.S. Freestyle”

fabolous-bas-cover

Them Clue tapes have always been my shit! I grew up on them, which eventually led into me researching hip-hop to the fullest. Late on a Friday night, Fabolous drops off a freestyle over the “B*tches Ain’t Shit” instrumental. The 90’s themed album, The Young OG Project that we got from Fabolous late last year took me back to those “Young’n” days. “Rolling, gold two seater, stash in the dash, hold two heaters.” – Anyways, keeping it 90’s themed, Fabolous gives us some bars – making it evident why Fab has remained relevant for 10+ years.

[Video] Juno Awards Cypher: 2015 Nominees

juno cypher

In nine days, this years Juno Awards take place in Hamilton, Ontario. Among the rap nominees, are some of the best in the Canadian scene. Ironically, they are all from Toronto and surrounding areas. Which in my opinion, the GTA has some of the best artists in the business. Not to exclude the east or west coast, because the Canadian scene as a whole is taking over. Toronto is just the hub of it all.

Performing a song off their nominated projects, Saukrates, Naturally Born Strangers (Tona, Adam Bomb, Rich Kidd) & Tre Mission head over to CBC Music HQ with Marco Polo who runs the boards on the whole ordeal. What happens next though, is a time stamp in Canadian rap history as we get to hear them all go in on a cypher. With Saukrates setting it off, followed by Adam Bomb, Tre Mission than Tona. As each emcee goes in, it’s evident why these guys are nominated for Rap Recording of the Year. Also nominated, P Reign who is currently on tour with Drake in Australia & New Zealand. Rich Kidd is out in LA who is part of the collective, Naturally Born Strangers. If both of them were there also, it would be even crazier!

Take in the cypher and let me know who you think is going to win at the Juno’s on March 15th.

Tre Mission – Stigmata
Naturally Born Strangers – The Legends League Presents: Naturally Born Strangers
P Reign – Dear America
Saukrates – Amani
Marco Polo – Port Authority 2: The Directors Cut

Happy Birthday Big Soxx!! In celebration, Saukrates shares his brand new video for the title track off his Juno nominated EP, Amani . With a few cameos from colleagues Shad and Maestro Fresh Wes, the “Amani” video finds Saukrates going through the motions of music industry monotony. Despite all the headaches from the “higher ups,” our boy Amani still comes up on top. Be sure to hit up Big Soxx, wish him a happy birthday, and above all else… check out this latest video.

You can check out Saukrates March 12 as he rolls through London, to hit up The Soundbar.

[Premiere] Shhadeh – “Ask” (Dir: Jon Lines)

ask

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Shhadeh – a knowledgeable London emcee who never ceases to drop gems in his music. “Ask” is one of those songs where you have to pay attention the whole time, or you might miss something.
Linking up with director Jon Lines, Shhadeh gives his all letting us know he isn’t slowing down anytime soon. The visuals take you to a warehouse, where it almost feels like he fills the room with his presence. The trap style production from Larry Bird provides a smooth platform for Shhadeh to go off for three minutes straight!

We’re proud to premiere the new video from Shhadeh, let us know what you think of the new track below!

[Interview] No Malice of The Clipse: I don’t think it’s the listener’s duty to separate real from the fake

I had a interview scheduled to happen this past weekend and circumstances changed and I was left with no guest. I was going through my laptop to see if there anything I could release and I found my interview Malice one half of The Clipse, who now goes by No Malice.

I originally planned to release the phone interview as a video that would accompany The Clipse music videos and pictures; the video footage was corrupted and I the interview was forgotten about in the shuffle.

When I uploaded the interview to soundcloud it was 12:15pm and the date today is Wednesday March 4, 2015. I wanted to find out exactly when this interview happened, I went through 3 email accounts and I finally found it Wednesday March 3rd, 2010 at 12:15pm. EXACTLY five years and one day have passed, I don’t think its a coincidence and I think this is supposed to happen. Without further ado, I present my interview with No Malice, where he tells me how to separate the real from the fake, how he was a part of the ignorance and foolishness of Hip-Hop, and so much more.

[Video] Big Sean feat. Drake & Kanye West- “Blessings” (Dir. Darren Craig)

With D A R K S K Y P A R A D I S E hot off the press, Big Sean drops some spooky visuals for the Drizzy and Kanye West assisted single, “Blessings.” Collecting (arguably) the three hottest emcees in the game right now on the same track, its safe to say that Big Sean cut no corners on the follow up to “IDFWU.” Big Sean is on his way to solidifying his legacy in the hip hop game; anyone who thought Sean Don would just be a flash in the pan is probably reconsidering that statement. Peep the video, and share your thoughts below.
