Staxxx – Imagine [Video]
Toronto, ON – This summer just got a WHOLE LOT more interesting.
It’s been a minute since we posted something from Staxxx (formerly known as J-Staxxx). When we first started covering the Chalkfarm MC back in 2005, he (along with his Famm One crew) took on what seemed like the entire city of Toronto with his “Piggy Bank” diss track. He got under quite a few people’s skin with that one, but many people will also credit him for pumping some life into an often (at that time, at least) uneventful scene. There were mixtapes (shouts to DJ Rated R), events and even partnerships fueled by the release of Staxxx’s track. To say the least, he made an impact.
We now have a new visual release from Staxxx, representing Nothin Nervous and Pennmanship University, for “Imagine” where he seems to address the aftermath of that very situation (or one just like it) and why he’s making a return to the scene. Is he taking shots at the same people from before? Check it out below and look out for more from Staxxx.
With a leave of absence from the scene, it’s only fitting that he has a project scheduled to drop August 20 called While Your Enemies Are Sleeping. Again, this summer just got way more interesting… stay tuned!
