[Video] TiRon & Ayomari ft. BJ The Chicago Kid – “Her Theme Song” (Dir: David M. Helman)

TiRon & Ayomari just dropped the visuals for “Her Theme Song”, the second video off their superb A Sucker For Pumps album (after “All My Love”). “Her Theme Song” features BJ The Chicago Kid on the chorus, who you should be familiar with from “His Pain” featuring Kendrick Lamar, and his February album Pineapple Now-Laters. He’s also worth checking out on Thurz’s “Hell’s Angel”, off L.A. Riot. As for TiRon & Ayomari, their A Sucker For Pumps album is definitely worth listening to. I’ve been following TiRon & Ayomari since TiRon’s 2009 Ketchup mixtape, and they’ve constantly improved since then. They first caught my attention with the hilarious “3 Drink Minimum”, off Ketchup. Check out “Her Theme Song” and “3 Drink Minimum” below.

[Video] iLLvibe – “Nowhere To Be” (Prod: AbstracK)

Barrie/Toronto rapper iLLvibe just dropped the lyric video for “Nowhere To Be”, off AbstracK’s free album Digital Brain. “Nowhere To Be” is a definite summer track, with iLLvibe’s laid-back flow over a reggae-style beat. You can download AbstracK’s Digital Brain for free on his Bandcamp page. Other guests on Digital Brain include Moka Only, Jus Frais, Wordburglar, Spesh K, and more.

[Audio] Nas – “Another Black Girl Lost” (Prod: Hit-Boy)

[Mixtape] Citizen Kane – “Scartown Unreleased Classics”

Toronto rap group Citizen Kane and TopLeft Recordings have teamed up to release the Scartown Unreleased Classics mixtape. Citizen Kane will be performing in London this Thursday alongside Parrish Smith (PMD of EPMD) and Angerville as part of The Come Up Show’s 5 Year Anniversary Celebration. Here’s what Citizen Kane had to say about the mixtape:

“Scartown Unreleased Classics is a collection of songs we recorded from the years 2001 to 2005, which was never released. At that time Citizen Kane was on the verge of making a major impact in the underground hip-hop community worldwide, but we were confronted with obstacles from the music industry that believed we were a little too “Street” and not friendly enough for the Canadian radio. Refusing to follow the commercial sound that was becoming more popular at the time, we recorded melodic tracks with hard but poetic lyrics, staying true the gritty style of music that made Citizen Kane unique. There is two albums worth of material in this album, which is mixed by DJ Law with appearances from PeepSho, Califate, Stitch 7 and many more artists we were working with at the time. The production is from Big Sproxx, Down to Earth, Product, Dungenetics and Lost Info. There are also tracks that include R.P., who left the group at that time for personal reasons, never to return, putting the music on hold for a good time. If ya love hip-hop in its purest and realest form, you will love this album. It is a piece of Canadian music history from a group that laid the foundation for Canadian hip-hop today. This is the album they never wanted you to hear.”

[Interview] Phonte and 9th Wonder talk Destiny and Legacy, Guidance, doing the right thing

I’m excited to present our interview with the legendary producer 9th Wonder and Grammy nominated emcee/singer/songwriter Phonte. I caught up with them in Toronto this past fall and due to unforeseen circumstances we lost the video footage but we still felt the world needed to hear this interview, so we put together the audio, our photography, and with some great editing skills we are happy to share it with you.

9th Wonder first answers how we can educate our culture on the history of Hip-Hop and why it is important he also tells us what the difference is between Destiny and Legacy. Phonte then answers my questions and gives me an example about the “legitimate struggle between doing right thing and doing some nigga shit”. He also expands on what his GPS is in Hip-Hop  industry, where it’s a game that has no blueprint he tells us what guides. They both also tell us what music means to them and more. Check out the interview below on The Come Up Show.
