[Event] Union Events presents Hoodie Allen April 28th @Virgin Mobile Mod Club (Toronto)

New York based rapper Hooide Allen is making a stop in Toronto on April 28th 2012 at the Virgin Mobile Mod Club. To be completely honest I have not heard much about Allen until one day stumbling on billboard.com. Scrolling through the charts I was surprised to find out that Allen has the #10 album in the U.S. Curious to learn more I did a little digital digging and found out that the MC has been selling out shows across the country and has already sold out The Wrongbar in Toronto, causing his upcoming show to be moved to the Virgin Mobile Mod Club. With over 124k likes on facebook and millions of hits on youtube there has to be something about the MC that has people buzzing. Get your tickets early if you can, by the looks of it this one is going to be a definite sellout.

What: Union Events presents Hoodie Allen live in concert
Where: Virgin Mobile Mod Club. 722 College Street (Toronto)
When: April 28th 2012
Admission: $26 + S.C available at Ticketmaster

[Mixtape] Ivy-League Zombie – “Cheap Sake; 100 Yen”

Sometimes, all you need is some good instrumentals to listen to. Luckily, Bronx duo Ivy-League Zombie (Tut-Piece and Roku) come through with Cheap Sake; 100 Yen. Clocking in at around 40 minutes of nonstop beats, this was the perfect music I needed for studying today. If you’re looking for background music, Cheap Sake; 100 Yen definitely fits the bill, though that’s not to say the music doesn’t deserve to be paid attention to in its own right. Both Tut-Piece and Roku do a great job of carefully crafting a fusion of hip-hop, jazz, funk, and soul into the beat tape, creating a good amount of diversity among their beats. My only wish is that each beat was its own separate song. Instead, we get two songs, representing each beatmaker’s work. Stream and download Cheap Sake; 100 Yen below.

[Mixtape] Treejay & DJ Clockwork – “The Grow Op: Official 4/20 Mixtape”

Fresh off 4/20, DJ Clockwork & producer Treejay bring us The Grow Op. with artists featured such as Mac Miller, Smoke DZA, and Sir Michael Rocks (to name a few) the mixtape has great appeal through variety of style. It definitely has a relaxed vibe throughout and is a great listen for fans of the many producers and rappers on the project.

Featured production from Big Jerm, Cookin Soul & HD bring a high quality sound, that many “typical weed songs” lack. Be sure to check out the two early favorites I had “The Grow Up” by Mac Miller & “We Get High” by Sir Michael Rocks. Also, download of the mixtape is below with streams of my early favorites.

[Album] Shag – “Remixes and B-Sides”

Texas beatmaker Shag recently dropped Remixes and B-Sides, a 20-track compilation of original remixes as well as a few B-sides that didn’t make the cut for his upcoming EP. I first found out about Shag when I heard his outstanding Flyrule album last year, an 11-track instrumental hip-hop reworking of The Legend of Zelda music. If you’re a fan of the Zelda series, I highly recommend checking it out. Standout tracks on Remixes and B-Sides are Nas and AZ’s “Life’s A Bitch” remix, and Co$$’s “Scriptures” remix. Stream and download Remixes and B-Sides below.

[Audio] JD- “I Go Hard At ‘Em”

Up and comer, JD drops his latest track I Go Hard At ‘Em. The single is a great entrance to the game, and is sure to attract a lot of attention for the Colorado native. Accompanied by some great up-tempo production JD brings some clever verses, along with great energy and confidence on the mic. Check out the track below & be sure to download if you dig it.

[News] Tonight we celebrate The Come Up Show 5 year anniversary

THE COME UP SHOW BIRTHDAY CAKE

5 Years ago today- April 19, 2007 was the first official timeslot of The Come Up Show. I started doing the Wednesday night/Thursday morning time slot 2am-6am every week. My only goal was to give artists a chance for their music to be heard, to play great Hip-Hop and R&B music I felt wasn’t being represented at all on radio or TV.

5 years later The Come Up Show has developed into an award winning radio show and we just got a stylus nomination for College Radio Show of the year. We launched The Come Up Show website which is home for daily music updates and news. The Come Up Show TV which has gained over half a million views from interviewing artists like Shad, Method Man, Kendrick Lamar and countless other people. One of the special things about The Come Up Show is the great people we have attracted; from our bloggers, video team, marketing and street team, together we helped artists who we believe in. We did the first Canadian interview with artists like Big KRIT who is on his way to superstardom, and we contributed to the culture we love and that is the most important thing.

Tonight we are celebrating at APK LIVE and it’s going to be a great show as Parrish from the legendary EPMD will be performing, Citizen Kane, Angerville and other talented artists. To me this isn’t just a celebration of what we have accomplished but it’s a celebration to what is possible.

I would like to thank every single person and organization who have supported us. 94.9FM CHRW being the foundation to where it all started and our peers, and fans that continue to support us.

Come out tonight and celebrate with us, there will be ice cream cake and great people vibing. Tickets are still avaliable and only 15 bucks.

Sese just dropped the visuals today for “Take 1″, featuring SonReal. Produced by 2oolman and Big Pops, “Take 1″ is yet another testament to the progression of Sese and SonReal.
