[Photos] Toronto Recap weekend featuring Rich Kidd, Classified, Maestro, Kardinal & More

If you’ve been following me or @thecomeupshow on twitter this past weekend then you know I’ve been in Toronto since Thursday night. The main reason for coming down was to support Rich Kidd for his album In My Opinion release party. Having been to countless Rich Kidd shows, this was the first time I’ve been to a show for his mixtape/album. I’m glad I went because it was one of the best performances I’ve seen from Rich, bringing his mother on stage, his uncle pulling dance moves, The Airplane Boys performing Beau Monde, A Game and Luu Breeze performing Money Made Me Do It. I’m very inspired because Feel Good Music is being embraced and supported! HIT THE JUMP FOR THE FULL PICTURES, VIDEOS, AND ARTICLE!

[Video] Rich Kidd’s “In My Opinion” Release Party

HipHopCanada recently had the opportunity to catch up with Toronto rapper and Juno nominated artist Rich Kidd at the release party for his newest project, In My Opinion. In the video/interview Rich speaks on his experience at the Juno’s, and the politics involved within the hip-hop industry. Take a look at the footage below shot by Logik.

[Audio] Jay Dot Rain Ft. Wynt Earley – “Red Cup Kickback” (Prod: D Beatz)

After the success earlier this year with his second solo mixtape Cooley Fly Chronicles, rising Alabama emcee Jay Dot Rain links up with Wynt Earley, his long time friend as they collaborate for a new banger titled “Red Cup Kickback.” The two artists paint the picture of the young and reckless party life they are known for over the D Beatz produced track. Listen below and stream/download Cooley Fly Chronicles after the jump.

[Video] TassNata – “#GARYBETTMAN” (Dir: Lee Watkins)

I stumbled upon this freestyle earlier by Vernon, BC artist, TassNata. Going in over a Nottz production which originally features Asher Roth titled “Enforce the Law”, Tass put’s his own twist on the beat with some slick punchlines and wordplay. If you know who Gary Bettman is, than this needs no description. Directed by Lee Watkins the visuals feature cameos from fellow Vernon artists SonReal, Nick Brongers and Stage. “#GARYBETTMAN” is featured on TassNata’s upcoming mixtape I Forgot, slated to release July of this year. Also be on the lookout for his studio album coming this September which has features from SonReal, Danny Brown, REKS, Stage and more. Watch the video below and let me know what you think.

[Audio] Daft Punk ft. Pharrell – “Get Lucky” (M-Rock Remix)

If you’ve been anywhere near a computer in the past two weeks, there’s no doubt that you’ve heard Daft Punk’s latest collaboration with Pharrell at least once – that is, if you haven’t been playing it on repeat constantly. If you still can’t get enough of it, or want to hear a fresh take on it, look no further than DJ M-Rock’s remix of the track. It may not be the typical hip-hop that we post, but good music is good music, right? Check out the remix and what M-Rock had to say below:

“Even though I love the risk they’ve taken, and how that vintage disco sound is so familiar, it doesn’t totally knock the room down. And it sounds a bit like it could use some more to really give it that old school feel. I wanted to hear a funky brass band and a section of violinists bending their necks towards their instruments on top. So that’s what I did, I just worked hard at producing it so it sounds old school.” – DJ M-Rock
