[Video] CALiPH – “R.O.D.” (Dir: Alex Colthart)

Just a few days after releasing his Lead With Honor EP, CALiPH is back with the visuals to “R.O.D.”, off his upcoming album RiseOrDie. On the track, CALiPH goes doubletime over the bass-heavy, strings-driven production by ItsJustKeys. I’m definitely feeling this one! If you haven’t taken in the Lead With Honor EP yet, check it out here. No word yet on a release date for RiseOrDie, but you can expect it to drop this summer. Watch the visuals to “R.O.D.” below.

[Interview] Elaquent talks early influences, issues with bootlegging, and pursuing his dreams

THE COME UP SHOW 6TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Interview by: Martin Bauman

Hidden in the deep recesses of Southwestern Ontario lies one of today’s most talented beatmakers: Elaquent. The Guelph, ON producer has been steadily gaining a following throughout Europe and the United States – he just got back from touring Europe, with stops in Glasgow, Brighton, Berlin, and Paris – all the while remaining relatively unnoticed in Canada. It begs the question, why haven’t people caught on back home? In an effort to catch you up to speed, The Come Up Show sat down with Elaquent to discuss his early influences, issues with bootlegging, pursuing his dreams, and more.

[Mixtape] Dayda Banks – “Roy Meets World”

Every once in awhile, I’ll stumble across a gem in the inbox. Today, that gem is Dayda Banks’ Roy Meets World. On the mixtape, the Saskatoon, SK emcee delivers a heartfelt, carefully-crafted project with some talented rhyming to boot. A couple early favourites are “I Want It All”, “Bring Boots”, “For The Hell Of It”, and “Therapy”. Stream/download Roy Meets World and read what inspired the project below.

“About a year ago I found myself lost, frustrated and sick of living in the same day routine. You could say I had a sudden moment of clarity and realized what I have been doing is not important, and this repetition I have been caught up in, is not the way I want to spend my life… Where I live, the easiest thing to do is to lose yourself, and fall into something I see people regret for their whole lives. Instead, I picked up a pen. Music has been a way I can inspire and motivate, vent about personal conflict, and help others with their own.” – Dayda Banks

[Video] Peter Jackson ft. Lukas Rossi – “18 to Life” (Dir: Ryan Ellis)

Drinking and driving is something to be taken seriously. In Canada alone about 1250 to 1500 people a year are killed by impaired driving according to MADD statistics. At some point we have all been affected by it and to help bring awareness, Peter Jackson chose to use his talent as an artist to share a true story about a tragic event of 4 teens, which one chose to get behind the wheel while under the influence. This subject is rarely touched with hip-hop music, so it’s great to see when it is. Teaming up with Lukas Rossi, the current frontman for The Halo Method, the two cover the classic Skid Row “18 to Life”. Having a friend who was in a fatal accident due an impaired driver, for me this one definitely hits home. Peter Jackson will be donating 100% of the proceeds from this latest single off Fresh Start to MADD as well.

[Video] Mac Miller – “S.D.S” (Dir: Rex Arrow Films)

Mac Miller just dropped a funky new visual from his upcoming album Watching Movies With The Sound Off, titled “S.D.S” or “Somebody Do Something”. Depicted as a super hero, with powers formed through a lab experiment gone wrong and his trusty bulldog sidekick to aid him, Mac fights off the evil villain Red Dot while flowing over a spacey Flying Lotus production. My bet’s are placed on Mac for this one. Take a look at our recent interview with Mac Miller, which he talks about his upcoming album if you haven’t already and make sure to purchase “S.D.S” on Itunes.
