[Video] Dan-e-o – Girl (Boom Boom Pump)

New video from Dan-e-o.

Directed by iLLvibe and produced by iLLvibe Studios, “Girl (Boom Boom Pump)” is the second video from Dan-e-o’s third album, “Inevitable” and the fourth from the EP, “Immortal” – both are out now on URBNET Records.

Dan-e-o’s smoky-jazz-club ode to a relationship gone bad, “Girl (Boom Boom Pump)” doubles as a classy display of quick-tongued lyricism. The music video also co-stars rising superstar singer/model, Misha.

[Video] Famous – Next Year

Produced by Thrizzo.

Toronto-bred Juno/Much Music award-nominated rapper/actor FAMOUS presents the ILLvibe-edited music video for “Next Year”, the new single from FAMOUS’ new album Center Stage, out now with features from Julian Wheeler, David Delisca and Madilyn Bailey as well as Francesca & Lisa Michelle. The video is composed of repurposed clips of FAMOUS performing MC Hammer’s “You Can’t Touch This” at his 13th birthday party at LaLa Land in Montreal. “One of the cool things about the place was that you can choose what song you wanted to perform and then choose from a selection of costumes and instruments,” says FAMOUS. “Once chosen, you go on set and they record you. Then they do some post effects on the video and send you home with a copy.” The track is produced by fellow Toronto native Thrizzo, whose catalog was recently featured on Diplo’s radio show. “Thrizzo sent me the beat and the beat felt like a slap in the face. Like WAKE UP. Get back on that fly s**t! I chose to use that old footage seeing how it was the first video I ever recorded, this was the first single off my first album and it took me back to that time when I was just having fun doing what I loved!”

Rayne Drop releases Phantom Of The Chopera


Saskatchewan native and producer Rayne Drop has released his debut EP, Phantom Of The Chopera. The project features emcees from across Canada, from Toronto (iLLvibe, Truth Willis and Mickey Ulster) to Vancouver, Edmonton, Barrie and Prince Albert.

The dirty instrumental introduction, with it’s dark synths and crunching kicks, will make any rapper worth his or her salt want to jump on it; the path for this project has been clearly laid from the beginning. From the early Kanye-esque string sample of ‘The Revolution’; the stabbing horns of ‘Real’; the eerie vocal sample on ‘Pride’; the mid-90s New York vibe of ‘Basic’; the bouncy ‘A Little Rain’ (Fun Fact: the beat was picked by Rayne Drop’s son); the gritty cinematic ‘Confirmed Kill’ and the anthemic ‘Air Jordans’, ‘Phantom Of The Chopera’ truly appeals to fans of every facet of the genre.
