[Audio] Kendrick Lamar – “War Is My Love”

War Is My Love is off the upcoming Ghost Recon: Future Soldier video game. This isn’t your average video game song though, Kendrick definitely brings his style & rhymes you expect. The beat is made up of some great synths & sounds I can see working well with the game, it has that epic feel to it. Kind of dope to me Kendrick is going to be in this game, he didn’t have to dumb his rhymes down & I think it will work well for the game. Stream is below.

Happy Days is off 1982‘s upcoming album 2012, dropping Tuesday May 22. Don’t sleep on this track as Mac & Bun both drop great verses that are accompanied by Shawn (of Boyz 2 Men) on the chorus doing his thing. Of course, Term brings heat on his verse as usual. I feel this is going to be a stand out track for me off the album, be sure to check back Tuesday for the album purchase link.

[Interview] JD Era tells us about No Handouts mixtape concept, Raekwon’s advice, shift in Toronto scene

In support of his latest mixtape No Handouts, JD era held a invite only listening session for members of the press and radio at the Ice H20 offices in Toronto on May 1st 2012. For the lucky few in attendance the night included Horderves, drinks and a sampling of music from Era”s latest mixtape No Handouts.

Since it was announced that Raekwon would be starting a label in Toronto with JD Era being the first act signed under the imprint, expectations have been high. Having the burden of proving that Canadian talent can be successful without crossing the border has been a tall order for many artists to prove. However, with quality music like the well crafted No Handouts, Era is well on his way to proving that it can be done. With solid production from 9th wonder, Lex Luger, Burd X Keyz and amazing features on standout tracks like Mount Olympus with Shi Wisdom and The Greatest featuring Raekwon, No Handouts sets the stage for Era to become a household name without having to leave the great white north.

We spoke with Era about the making of No Handouts, who his favourite Wu -Tang artist was growing up, and why he feels Canadian MC’s can compete with the best of them.
