Toronto, ON – More new music coming out of Scarborough. This is Set2 featuring Rich Kidd on the Daniel Worthy-produced “Tings Bless (Legacy).” “Tings Bless” is HipHopCanada’s Song Of The Day. Check it out below.
“What’s The Hype?” was actually made back at the beginning of 2014. Our dudes claim they took a collection of anonymous fan-submitted clips and pieced them together to make this video. Basically, you’ll see a lot of lurky black-and-white shots of people stickering Population Control stickers all over the place. So what’s the hype? That’s the hype. The video was directed by Jake Tee. Check it out after the jump.
Toronto, ON – Cortez 416 drops off the trailer to his forthcoming video, “Whoa,” shot by Sonny Visual Productions. Check it out below.

Los Angeles, CA – Original Black Eyed Peas co-founder Apl.de.ap is finally embarking on a solo quest, much his fellow BEP members before him. AP3 is due early 2015 and yesterday Billboard premiered the video game themed visuals for the single, “Be.” The song features Jessica Reynoso, a finalist from The Voice Philippines, as well as Canada’s own Honey Cocaine. The BEP MC-producer pays homage to his Filipino-American roots further by having Lulu & Lala, identical twins from Miami’s Hit 97.3, make a cameo appearance.
In connecting with Honey Cocaine, Apl.de.ap had this to say to Billboard: “I caught Honey’s flow online and knew I had to collaborate with her on one of my tracks. There’s a few things about her that made this song come together real well. First off, she’s real. You don’t find many like that in the industry nowadays. Her skills on the mic are ridiculous and the fact that she’s this little feisty Asian rapper, I think is just dope.”
Check out “Be” after the jump.
Toronto, ON – JUNO Award-nominated, and TIMA-winner, JD Era, returns with a new single backed by some slick OSRS production. In the new song, Era calls out haters, fakers and everything in between. Check out the aptly titled “Fuck ‘Em” below. Stay tuned for more from the Black Market artist – coming soon!
Calgary, AB – Jon James (who you might also know as McFee from the Loose Canon Playaz) recently teamed up with Evrlove Blake to deliver this new single release titled “Addicted.”
Jon and Blake hit us with a wavy smoked out beat (which was self-produced by Jon) and take us deep into the mind of an addict. Spoiler alert: we’re not necessarily talking about substance addiction, here. This joint is all about addiction to progressing in the rap game. Oh, and women, too. Women are addictive. Addiction usually has a negative connotation but I feel like this joint forces us to see it in a different light: “Want it so bad/ I’m addicted to it.”
Hamilton, ON – “Like A Drug” is the latest tune released by Steel City’s Bo$quiat Clique. Check out the B3auu-produced record below.
Toronto, ON – Our latest Song of the Day is a new banger from Toronto vet Trinity Chris. The Metcalfe-produced “Million On My Mind” features ABK’s Scrwg Scrila and 9-0 Nickel’s Peter Jackson. Check it out below.
