Name that song – Def3 throws a contest to name his latest track [Contest]

Vancouver, BC – It’s no secret that Def3 has been making that good good for years now. In 2007 he made a track that he has since carried with him and never released – until now.

“I wrote and produced this song in particular in 1 sitting over 2 or 3 hours in 2007, after hearing the sample I looped it and rolled with it. I always felt the verses were some of my best to date as far as conscious thoughts go so I’m excited to share it with you. It’s not a club song by any means…more just deep thoughts and life lessons I had learned up to that point in time that still mean a lot to me nowadays” says Def3 who is calling out to fans for assistance in naming this archived banger.

So here’s the deal: listen to the track below and head over to the comments section on his fan page and make your suggestion under the related post at Our vote? “Hip-Hop(Canada) saved my life”  - good luck to all who enter!

Underachievers Live in Vancouver [Photos]

Vancouver, BCThe Underachievers tore the roof off of Fortune Sound this past week on the Eyes Of The World Tour with Denzel Curry, Dillon Cooper and Aziz Gibson. The Flatbush duo was decked out to the nines in BBC, Canucks, and of course that proper footwear while their DJ hung from the ceiling (literally) in a throwback Millionaires jersey.

Besides looking fresh-to-death the crew actually had the floors shaking via their eager fans. It was clear they were in the building to smoke, party and put on an energetic and hyphy show – Brooklyn style. Check the photo gallery from our boy Jamie Sands below.

The festival brought headliners Smoke DZA, Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, Ghostface Killah, and MGK, in to Edmonton for a night of hip-hop across the boards.

After the Beast Coast rap cats – Smoke DZA and Joey Bada$$ – got things going for the night, one of the hungriest MCs in the game right now (literally. Giggle. Snort) hit the stage. That’s right – ladies, and gentleman – the big loveable Bam Bam Baklava (aka: Action Bronson) rolled through Iron Mic. And it was precious.
