Pimpton – My Day ft. Shantel Stewart (Prod. 8track) [Audio]

Regina, SK – Queen City-based MC Pimpton is gearing up to drop his forthcoming Killa Call Me Killa Vol. 2 LP. And he’s just released a new track called “My Day” (featuring Shantel Stewart on the hook). This is about as self-reflective as it gets. Pimpton speaks to the struggle he’s endured to make it in the rap game: “The struggle’s still going/ So the hustle won’t stop.”

If you know Pimpton, you know that he’s all about the hustle. He’s one of the most hard-working MCs I know. Not just in terms of cranking out lots of new music, either. Pimpton is one of few who is just as much of a businessman as he is an artist. He knows how the game works. And he knows that “making it” is about so much more than the music.

Full disclosure: the first article I ever wrote for HipHopCanada was a review of Pimpton’s The Deal Breaker: Manifest Destiny. That was a minute ago. Over the last year-and-a-bit, Pimpton’s hustled hard. He’s made it through the festival circuit, he’s opened for some of the biggest shows, he’s made several appearances on the MuchVibe charts, and – most importantly – he’s continued to build with his fellow SK artists, as well as his C.J.E. fam.

So this track goes to show just how far the P-Man has come. He’s always had a penchant for weed-rap and trap beats. But he switched it up, got in touch with his feelers, and killed it over top of a beat that I would have never pegged as a beat he’d choose to rap over. This is all kinds of hopeful. Can’t wait to see what’s in-store for us on KCMKV2. This is your day, Pimpton. Salute!
