New music: Wasiu found himself a “Good Girl” and she’s a freak in the sheets

Montreal, QCWasiu just hit us with his latest release titled “Good Girl.” This track comes to us as the second single off the forthcoming #MTLiens EP release.

This song is a nod to all the quiet “good girls” out there who get downright freaky in the sheets. Wasiu’s signature storytelling delivery nails it on this joint. He courts the “Good Girl” and finally gets to bang her. But then he realizes she’s pulling a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde on him IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE.

You know when you meet someone and they’re not who you thought they were? Yeah. That’s what happened. But instead of turning out to be a monster, the “Good Girl” turned out to be a sexual demigoddess: “Damn/ I thought you was a good girl/ With your glasses/ What happened?/ Once you take them off you become a porno actress, huh?/ Clever disguise.”

The artwork comes to us courtesy of @drmnico, and the track was produced by Dear Lola. Dear Lola has become one of my favourite sample-based producers. He has a knack for flipping song samples into these crazy handcrafted unrecognizable beats. This track samples The Internet’s Kaytranada-assisted “Girl.” And admittedly, I couldn’t place the sample. Shameful, right? Check it out below.

Brampton artist Milly Manson just challenged you all to a “Stare Down”

Brampton, ON – Brampton up-and-comer Milly Manson recently dropped his latest heat on us with this new single titled “Stare Down.” Milly teams up with Eestbound, who crafted up this filthy little beat for homie to go in on.

Milly barely even leaves time for an intro before he dives in. Fifteen seconds into the track and he’s already firing the shots with his hook: “F**k n**ga/ Look at me Now/ I’m the n**ga that these n**gas wanna be now/ Ey/ Beast on the beat now/ Gotta keep Eestbound on the speed dial/ Keep this shit pumping like/ Turn a Q to a half to a P now/ Turn a P into stacks/ Got G’s now/ Straight whipping all these bitches on my penile.”

Arlo Maverick shows the domino effect of bullying in new video, “More”

Edmonton, AB – Edmonton artist Arlo Maverick (of the Politic Live crew) recently released a video for “More” as part of the Maybe Tomorrow project. This video was funded by Storyhive and Telus, and follows the domino effect of a young kid getting bullied on the playground.

“More” does more than just show us how bullying impacts us, though. The video ALSO shows us how people impact other people, and what kindness is capable of.

It’s a difficult video to take in, at times, but it also shows how good people and good deeds are always there and always possible: “Waking up every morning thinking how will I survive/ There’s more to this life than this/ And we here broke/ But momma put in that overtime/ There’s more to this life than this/ Yeah Pops send money/ But it’s not all of the time/ There’s more to this life than this/ I should satisfy/ But the devils messing with my mind/ There’s more to this life than this.”
