Kay Anthony – #June5th [Mixtape]

Boissevain, MB – Brooklyn rapper, Kay Anthony, teamed up with Canada’s very own Boissevain-based producer, Canis Major, for Anthony’s second mixtape, #June5th. It’s the follow-up project to Anthony’s first mixtape, The Art. But this tape is serious experimental business. You’re going to want to crank it up on the speakers.

#June5th includes collaborations with Jimmy the Rapper, Lucky Lonji, SleeperCamp, and more. It’s available for free via AudioMack. So make sure you cop a download, and give it a listen below.

Major and his fellow producers – Freddie Joachim, LuMajor, Dre 1 Beats, and Anthony (who executive produced his own album) – keep the beats fresh. There’s a lot of audio sampling, a little bit of trap, some classic boom bap, and lots of experimental stuff that you’ve probably never heard before.

And for all of the Mos Def (or rather, Yasiin Bey) fans out there: Listen to “War.” The track uses the Aretha Franklin “One Step Ahead” sample that Bey popularized in “Ms. Fat Booty.” And Anthony makes it his own by providing some thought-provoking societal commentary. It’s fantastic
