Politic Live – Ironies & Cliches (RMX) (Posse Cut) [Audio]

Edmonton, AB – Today’s Song of the Day is a posse-cut remix of Politic Live’s track, “Ironies & Cliches,” off of Ellipsis. The boys of Politic Live — Bigga Nolte, Arlo Maverick, Dirt Gritie and DJ Sonny Grimezz – teamed up with eight of their favourite MCs for this real-talk joint. The track pokes fun at the state of mainstream and underground hip-hop with cheeky verses that spotlight our talented Canadian MCs. There’s nothing wrong with making it big on the college radio charts, or rocking pants that are, “tighter than your verses.” But the boys are pretty straight up about their thoughts on the scarcity of hip-hop playtime on major Canadian radio stations, as well as the lack of Canadian representation in publications like The Souce and XXL. The track was removed from the final Ellipsis track list prior to the album’s release. But it’s now available for your listening pleasure. So bump the track after the jump.
