Toronto, ON – Toronto up-and-comer Huey P. drops off new visuals that has some viewers denoting the artist as the city’s “next up.” The Adrian Altobelli-directed “Last Night In Toronto” is the first video Huey has released in roughly a year but it’s certainly worth the wait.

Vancouver, BC – American R&B singer Goapele released her fifth album, Strong As Glass last year and has been on tour ever since. Her presence in the public eye is very much like her, strong but subtle. She has been producing quality soul music with contemporary stylings for over a decade now and manages to get better with each successive album and magically remains relevant.
Montreal, QC – Wasiu (aka: one of my favourite dudes in the game right now) just dropped his latest single release titled “Many Dreams.” This track gives a nod to the late greats, Tupac and Biggie, with a hook that samples “Runnin’ (Dying To Live)” and a commentary about making it to that next level in the rap game.
Also, the joint was produced by Da-P dabeatX (of Soulection). Which explains why the beat is such a head shaker. Holy damn. You could vibe out to this on repeat ten times like I just did.
Calgary, AB – Evrlove Blake (from the Evrlove crew) recently teamed up with Evrlove Versz to hit us with this fresh new video single titled “Arturo Fuente.” This joint comes to us off Blake’s forthcoming Perception Of Love project which is due out next month. The video was shot by YN, and the track was co-produced by Evrlove Blake and Evrlove Artafacts.
For those who aren’t familiar, Arturo Fuente is a brand of cigars. They are fancy AF, and range from medium-to-full bodied in taste. They are also one of the most expensive brands you can buy. Evrlove Blake explained to me that the cigars symbolize power. Homie watched videos of princes in Dubai smoking Arturo Fuentes, and purposely leaving the cigar unfinished to show their status and power.
