#SOTD | Dan-e-o, Big Kish, Maestro & DJ MelBoogie – Vapors 2012 [Audio]
Toronto, ON – The classics never go out of style. When three emcees from Toronto get together to collaborate on a track for the love of hip hop, only goodness can come out of it. In 2010, when Dan-e-o was visiting Big Kish in L.A., the two were taking about future collaborative projects. While reminiscing about their favourite old school tracks, and memories of Concert Hall shows, Kish suggested to Dan-e-o that they do a cover of Biz Markie’s “Vapors”.
After reconnecting with Maestro while he was in L.A., Kish had found the perfect third emcee to round out the track. The only missing piece was a DJ. Maestro suggested his sister, DJ MelBoogie, and the rest was hip-hop history. This project was done out of love for the music, but even more that that, the track marked some firsts for this team: “Vapors 2012” is the first collaboration between Maestro and Dan-e-o, along with being the first collaboration between Wes and his sister MelBoogie. For Kish, this was only the second song he’d recorded after a 15 year hiatus.
To compliment the song, Kish asked phenomenal artist, Sean “Cheeks” Galloway, who did character design for the animated “Spider-man” series, to create some artwork to accompany the release. “Vapors 2012” is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day.
