Grimace Love releases TELL DEM as the third official release off of his upcoming album entitled, Strength. This song features Jamaican-Canadian veteran emcee Wio-K and up and coming triple threat T Dot artist Degazity. TELL DEM is the perfect blend of hip hop and foundation roots reggae, creating a sound that is distinctly Toronto. All of the artists on the track are first generation Canadians displaying their strong Caribbean, West-Indian influences on the song. In addition the music video for TELL DEM was shot at the 2014 Caribana parade in Toronto and was directed by Andre Rehal and produced by Bruce Carson for Worked Films. TELL DEM is a powerful record and the song and video are packed with Caribbean content and visuals that truly represent the T Dot!
New EP from NewBreedMC featuring appearances from Wio-K, Natasha Waterman, SeAn Prominent and produced by Relic.
Toronto artist NewBreedMC teams up with Producer RELIC to bring you “This Side of Power”. This is NewBreedMC’s follow up project to a very successful mix tape release – “Your Mom Like My Mixtape”. The EP is blessed with some of Toronto’s most incredible artists and delivers true power on each cut.
Debut single from Tymepeace. Directed by Jojo Karume.
In “Let You Know”, Tymepeace and their cohort, Wio-K, go off the rails, crash through the barrier, run over that old lady from ‘Faces of Death’, and then burst into flames. It all takes place over a syncopated bass line, piercing drums, and definitive cuts that constantly remind you of what just happened.
Return To The Classics Vol. 1.5 is a follow up to Lancecape’s Vol. 1 that was released in the spring. 1.5 features Monolith emcees spitting over classic samples from Curtis Mayfield to James Brown to Iron Butterfly.
“Cruff” is the sixth track to be released from Lancecape’s Return To The Classics.
Lancecape unleashes yet another crazy sample flip. This time he re-visited a Ronnie Laws track that was notably used on Black Moon’s smash hit “Who Got The Props”. This break is incredible. Very smooth, very jazzy and with some crispy drums. It becomes one of Lancecape’s best flips on the project, just push play and you too will agree.
Lancecape called upon none other than Wio-K, one of Canada’s best emcees. The support he has in the Canadian hip hop community has earned him a cult-like following. Wio-K prides himself on being a proud Jamaican/Canadian and has undeniably contributed to putting Toronto on the map.
Being a proud father and role model, he decided it’s time to expose the “Cruff” artists out there leading their listeners into self-destruction. The song is 100% genuine and true to the point. “Your seed can’t claim your love, cause you’re a jerk waste youth in real life man you’re a CRUFF”. These words alone explain everything.
Here is SepTO’s video for “Dreaded Fist,” which is a remix of the classic Rascalz track. It was released SepTO’s 12 Days of Xmas, so I’m a few days late in posting it, but better late than never. The other days are listed below as well.
