Diaz – The Ride ft. Che BLVD [Video]

Toronto, ON – T-Dot’s own Diaz teamed up with Che BLVD to bring us these dope new visuals for “The Ride.” It’s a vibed-out joint that emphasizes the importance of working hard, playing hard, and enjoying the ride along the way. It’s about the journey; not the destination. You feel me? The video was produced by Fed Up Films, and the track was produced by Che BLVD. Check it out below.

Diaz – The Ride ft. Che BLVD [Video] -

You may be familiar with Diaz as one of Toronto’s well-known KOTD battlers. In fact, he’s going to be in Vancouver this weekend for #GASTOWN Vancouver 02.22.14 at Fortune Sound Club (147 E Pender St.). He’ll be going against Pigsty. So if you’re over on the West Coast, check it out. Battling aside, Diaz has got a good look as a solo artist. And I just want to take a moment to shout out that shirt he wears at the beginning of the video. The one with that time-piece print. Because it’s unreal.

The video also definitely just put Che BLVD on our radar. He produced the track. And he’s kind of a musical Jack-of-all-trades. He also has a gig as the lead guitarist for Toronto’s Stolenowners group, as well as a side project called Ellis Dea. He’s got that whole Knux kind-of-a-vibe going for him. You know? He’s a rock ‘n’ roller rap cat. And he’s just too unapologetically cool for me too handle.
