Hip-Hop Ain’t Dead It Lives In The North Volume 1 [Mixtape]
Toronto, ON – With over 5,000 t-shirts sold across Canada, the groundbreaking brand is expanding to include a mixtape series of its own. And after a successful cross-Canada tour with Busta Rhymes, Belly and Peter Jackson, it is finally available online.
This dynamic collection of music plays more like a compilation album than a mixtape – Hip-Hop Ain’t Dead It Lives In The North Volume 1. Insightful commentary anchors the interludes, live freestyles by Drake, Big Blax and Rochester bring exclusivity and a plethora of quality songs come together to prove there is in fact energy behind hip-hop culture in the north. Hosted by founder and co-owner Jonathon “Bizz” Brown and mixed by DJ Big Nasty, this collection is as eclectic as it is groundbreaking. From Bishop Brigante’s “Man In The Mirror Remix” to Jahvon’s “Hypebeast” to Peter Jackson’s “Paper Boy” featuring Royce Da 5’9″, the music speaks for itself.
“This tape finally associates the brand with the actual music it represents,” says co-owner and HipHopCanada co-owner Jesse Plunkett.
This is the first volume of the series with a second compilation scheduled for mid to late October. For a look at more to do with the brand visit
