#Rhyme4PRhyme‬: Ottawa’s own SawBuck makes the Top 10 finalist list [News]


Ottawa, ON – HipHopCanada wants to send a special shout-out to SawBuck for being the only Canadian to make it on the Top 10 finalist list of the #Rhyme4PRhyme competition.

In case y’all missed the memo, Royce Da 5’9″ and DJ Premier teamed up to create a monstrous two-headed duo known as PRhyme. Anyways, PRhyme launched two contests for all the budding MCs and producers on the come-up. The first contest – #PRhymeRemixContest – challenged producers to remix acapella vocals into a fresh new remix beat. The second contest – #Rhyme4PRhyme – challenged MCs to see who could spit out the best remix over top of a Premier beat.

The rules were simple enough: download the instrumental from BeatStars, record your verse or song, and then upload your track to YouTube. After personally reviewing every single submission (yes – thats right – Premier and Royce Da 5’9″ peeped every single submission that went in), PRhyme announced a Top 10 finalist list for each contest. We’re happy to announce that Ottawa-based MC SawBuck (aka: the rapping half of the Buck N’ Nice duo) was listed as the only Canadian finalist in the #Rhyme4PRhyme contest. Check out SawBuck’s contest entry video after the jump, and make sure you send the homie some kudos. Salute!

Rezzi – Home of the Brave [Video] #Premiere


Toronto, ON – With his mixtape debut set to drop later this year, up-and-comer Rezzi re-releases the anti-bullying themed video for “Home of the Brave.” The single has already received a ton of media coverage and has seen Rezzi become a key player in the Youth Day Toronto festivities. “Home of the Brave” depicts several bullying scenarios but the negativity is overpowered – and outlasted – by acts of kindness.

Along with premiering the re-released video, HipHopCanada connected with Rezzi to discuss the single, his own tribulations, his forthcoming mixtape release and more. Click here to check out the interview, or click the jump link below to watch the Manee Osman-directed “Home of the Brave.”

Home of the Brave: Rezzi talks bullying, new mixtape & more [Interview]


Toronto, ON – For the past couple of years, a Toronto teenager has become a strong voice for speaking out against bullying. Having been the victim of bullying as a youth, 17-year-old Rezzi is now using his own experiences and struggles to make change and give hope to others.

When he was first introduced to hip-hop, Rezzi knew he had discovered a tool for healing and an instrument to create awareness about the long-term effects bullying has on people. Bullying can take a devastating toll on a young person’s development and has been connected to ongoing mental health issues such as anxiety disorders, panic disorder, and depression. And while the last few years has seen an overall increase in Canadian public awareness campaigns, and bullying is now “on people’s radar,” so to speak, the problem still remains.

PREVnet, Canada’s authority on research and resources for bullying prevention, estimates that around 200 million children and youth around the world are being victimized by their peers. Organizations like this, and individuals like Rezzi, have taken it upon themselves to ensure people understand that bullying is a global public health and social problem.

Budda Child – One In A Billion [Video]


Montreal, QC – On the Chinese New Year (Feb. 19), a cat out of Montreal named Budda Child released new visuals for his track titled “One In A Billion” off his solo debut album of the same name.

Budda Child delivers a powerful Asian-Canadian rap joint with dusty old-school influence, and it’s all kinds of fresh. It’s a whole different cultural approach to Canadian rap than I’m used to hearing, but Budda executes it with polish and purpose. He is one majestic dude. And he’s got a mighty effortless flow. Also, the footage he uses in the video from the street festival is next level LIVE. Check it out after the jump and head on over to iTunes or Bandcamp to cop the album.

Humble Giants – Who The Livest [Video]


Calgary, AB – A little twist to the February edition of 10 at 10 in Calgary this week, the Humble Giants premiered their new video for “Who The Livest.”

The video – directed by Miguel Aragon and featuring the artwork of baddguyryry – shows the Fort Mac-originated duo giving proper visual treatment to one of their classic tracks. Starkly grimy, the video lets Halfcut and Beni J.’s lyrics take centre stage, and their decade-old chemistry shows as they trade off lines and verses seamlessly. Shot in an empty warehouse with no budget, the video grips your attention from start to finish and reaffirms why a full-length Humble Giants project should be at the top of every YYC hip-hop head’s wish list.

T.Y. – Hands Are Tied (Prod. Chef Byer) [Audio]


Hamilton, ON - Hamilton’s own T.Y. just dropped a new gem on us entitled “Hands Are Tied” off his forthcoming collaborative EP with Chef Byer titled The Beautiful Exchange.

As you might guess from the song’s title, this is a joint about love. More specifically, it’s about the the lose-lose situation that is dating women. As T.Y. put it so poignantly in his exclusive interview over on One Woman Army: “I noticed a pattern that girls are all really confusing and weird.” Word to that, T.Y. Word to that.

T.Y. frames this track as an open letter to the women he’s dated along the way. Don’t think homie’s gotten all sappy soft on us, though. This isn’t actually a sob story heartbreak track; it’s more of an airing of frustrations. Sometimes you try to talk things out and you realize that your hands are tied. Women are hard to deal with. Sorry. Check it out.
