Doom Squad – Outta My Mind [Audio]

Edmonton, AB – At midnight, Doom Squad dropped their latest joint “Outta My Mind”, as an entry for Kato’s No Sucka MCs contest.

The Funk Volume producer has been running the contest for a few weeks now, accepting entries and posting [some of] them on his Facebook page. Doom Squad selected a beat, provided by Kato as part of the contest, and just went in on it (as they always do). While contestants had the option to record a verse or song, Doom Squad committed with clean verses and a hook that spot-on complimented the tone of Kato’s beat. It’s eerie, uncanny, and some-what out of the box for Doom Squad. That’s the point after all, isn’t it?

High Society – Fallin’ [Video]

Toronto, ON – T-Dot’s own High Society recently launched new visuals for his Benzel and Cashmere Cat-produced joint entitled “Fallin’.” High Society cruises down the street on his hip purple bicycle and delivers a killer fast flow. He hits us with a mad hungry set of bars; because he’s on his way. And he just celebrated a birthday, too. So happy birthday HS!

And that production has me tripping all over. It samples these smooth R&B vocals underneath a series of turnt trappy beats. It’s a mind-warp; and it’s all sorts of fresh. The video was directed by DJ Laz Vagez. Check it after the jump.

DillanPonders – The Boy Who Lived Pt. 2 [Video]

Toronto, ON – As DillanPonders gears up to drop his latest project – The Boy Who Lived – next month, he hits us with the second PSA of his promotional campaign. In case you missed it, the first PSA was a sneaky pro-blow video disguised as an anti-drug public service announcement.

This second DillanPonders PSA is pure druggy egg-celence. Literally – DP cooks eggs. In a frying pan. And it’s deep and symbolic because drugs fry your brain in the same fashion that a pan fries an egg. It all starts with the premise that doing drugs is bad. And then Dillan cracks his egg, and psychedelic drug imagery takes over. Because despite the fact that drugs are bad for you, DillanPonders could care less. He’s yolked. The video was directed by Jason Baskey. Check it after the jump. And – as per usual – try to keep your ish intact as you wait on the arrival of The Boy Who Lived. It’s dropping on Aug. 13. So the wait will soon be over.
