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.

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.
