Earlier this week, the homie Casper dropped one of his biggest videos to date. "Medicine," the Mat Blain directed short, centers around drug abuse, a serious problem through out all communities and is especially prominent in Casper's city. Casper shows us some vulnerability on this track, revealing how this epidemic has affected him and the ones he cares for most. The "Medicine"video finds Casper in a series of tough situations, where he chooses to take the higher ground in hopes that those who are struggling with addiction can look to him and his movement for inspiration. It is a personal song to Cas, but there are many people out there who can relate. Casper and Director Matt Blain met up several weeks ago to discuss working on a music video and there were several songs that Casper was initially going to show. The first song Casper played Mat was Medicine and immediately Matt felt a surge of inspiration. Without even hearing the other songs, they decided that "Medicine" was the song that they would shoot the music video for.The two collaborators agreed that at the end of the video, they wanted to provide people that are suffering from drug abuse with a message that would hopefully direct them towards help. You have to give it up for the emcees out there who spread positive vibes through their music- Good looking out Casper. Be sure to check this latest video out, and show some love in the comment section below.
Casper The Ghost has been on his grind for a long time. I can't count on two hands how many years he has been consistently working hard. There are many in his corner, and many that haven't had the opportunity to hear what he has to offer with his music. A story like none other, Casper has been through things in his life no one man should ever have to go through. Though with determination, he is one who always strives for better. Since I first stepped into the local scene in London, Ontario - Casper has always been brought to my attention. From winning an Ontario Freestyle Championship where the final two contestants were him and Tory Lanez. Being the first Canadian emcee to win the Rhyme Calisthenics competition. Opening for every big name to come through the city and tour to various towns to make sure he is heard. Hit the jump to check out an exclusive one on one with Casper and see his new video "Ghost N***a".

JR Fillion has now certified himself as a quickly rising star to all doubters. His newest video serves to cement that fact. From the down-town core of his home in London "Wrong Things" is a tale of perseverance. Featuring the artistic styles of the widely acclaimed Casper the Ghost (Treetop Ent), Bizzy (Streetscape Sounds), and captured by Tyson Fehr (Sonic Cinema). The three convey tales of struggle, both past and metaphorical, in an inspiring positive fashion. This single was released in preparation for Fillion's anticipated album Northern Lights. An album that will truly showcase what JR Fillion has become, as an independent artist. Hit the link to read the full article by Bill Beamin and watch "Wrong Things".
I be on that "Small Town Sh*t". Richie Blackz and Casper The Ghost, two close friends of The Come Up Show team up over a banging Mazur production, for a track that anyone from a small town can relate too. As two promising emcees, alone they dominate. Together, it's a whole new subject. Not much need be said for this one, although there is a video on the way very soon! With Richie working on a project, Casper working on a project - only time will tell what comes next. For now, take in "Small Town" and get in tune with the talent London, Ontario has to offer.
