GiNZ – 3 AM In China (Prod. N8ture Boy) [Audio]


Toronto, ON – It’s been a long minute since we’ve heard from GiNZ. But homie just hit us with a fresh new freestyle titled “3 AM In China.” Spoiler alert: GiNZ just got back from a trip to China – which is where he wrote this track (as you might have guessed from the title).

This freestyle rolls deep. There are layers to it. I mean, obviously it’s a nod to GiNZ’s trip abroad. But it’s also a commentary on music fame on a global scale. Cats get so caught up with being a hometown hero that they forget about the importance of pushing their music beyond their city. The track was produced by N8ture Boy. Check it out below.

Dirty Harry – All By Myself [Audio]


Calgary, AB – These last few weeks have been the best because some of my favourite up-and-coming Calgary dudes have been delivering the heat. If it was possible, I would add fire emojis to this post. Anyways, Dirty Harry just released a new tune titled “All By Myself.” And it’s burning heat.

I’m not even kidding. Harry says it himself on that first verse: “You should retire, man/ You don’ had your turn/ I feel like Usher Raymond/ I had to let it burn.” (Insert all the fire emojis here).

This track is a milestone for Harry’s growth as an artist. I’ve been plugging him to people a lot lately. Especially because he’s started to hone this Dirty Harry-style Mac Miller delivery. And he’s stayed consistent by going in on vibey chill-out beats. That being said, this track has a lot more trap crunch than Harry’s recent work. But it’s an important PSA to hear. If you want something done right, you’ve got to get ‘er done yourself: “I’ve done well for myself/ And that’s all by myself.” Oh. And spoiler alert: Harry sings on here. And I love when Harry sings. The track was produced by MJ. Check it out below.
