Onyx hits Vancity on the #WAKEDAFUCUP tour [Photos]


Vancouver, BC – Vancity has aways had a lot of love for Sticky Fingaz and Fredro Starr so naturally we were a bit surprised to see a slim turn out for 100 Mad’s Onyx on the final stop of their Canadian #WAKEDAFUCUP tour.

DJ Makeway dropped grimey joints at The Red Room in between openers GKR, Grimehouse, Ghost and Merkules’ sets, kicking off the Saturday night vibe for Onyx. Although fewer audience members were in attendance compared to their previous Vancouver shows, they boys came out and did it big for their real, day one fans. They were also backed by Vancity’s own Bo Beats on the 1′s and 2′s, which was pretty cool.

Check the crisp photo set by our guy Joel Dufresne below.

Dan-e-o – Grab A Cloud ft. L.I.U. [Video]


Toronto, ON – By now you should be more than familiar with Inevitable – the third official album from Toronto vet Dan-e-o (Monolith / Perfeck Strangers). The project now has fresh new visual support for fan-favourite “Grab A Cloud,” produced by Charisma aka Skizzz for Urban Bounce Productions.

Featuring his protégés, the duo L.I.U. (Slick Mason & Conwell), both the track and video capture the trio reviving back and forth rhyming, expressing their undying needs to escape being held down in order to fulfill their dreams.

The video was directed and edited by XCON, and produced by Will X Movement. Inevitable is available now through URBNET Records on iTunes and Bandcamp.

Juicy J turns up Vancouver on Never Sober Tour [Review]


Vancouver, BC - Juicy J recently preformed a show at The Vogue Theatre with Luke Christopher, J Dennis, HeatWave, and Spac3man as a part of his Never Sober Tour.

Admittedly, I was a little worried when I found out Juicy J was an all-ages show. The last all-ages I had been to was Tyler The Creator, and needless to say that was nothing but a mess of over-turnt teenagers; luckily chaos was avoided this time around. Watching the all agers mosh from the seats above the floor actually made the show even more amusing.

Miracle – Evol [EP]


Halifax, NS – Are you a fan of clever punchlines, multi-syllabic rhyme schemes or intricate quotables? Then this album is for you. The self-proclaimed King of Bars and Halifax’s problem child, Miracle, is back with his first solo EP, Evol. With all original production, Evol is most obviously the word love spelled backwards. This project reflects both the flaws and strengths of an individual through collective sound. A musical contrast of weakness and confidence. And it’s a free download for everyone to enjoy! Check it out after the jump link below.

M-Bomb – A Story No One Told [Mixtape]


Waterloo, ONOriginally published August 17, 2014 – Waterloo’s own M-Bomb (who pulls double-duty as a blogger for the fam over at The Come Up Show), just dropped his latest 10-track mixtape on us.

The tape is titled A Story No One Told and it was inspired by Shad’s song of the same name. This perfectly condensed autobiography tape delivers a hard-hitting introspective look at M-Bomb’s life, to-this-day. And to get us in that much deeper, he complemented his craft by working with beats from producers who have inspired him along the way.

For the record: this mixtape is actually more than just a mixtape. It’s a full-blown artistic concept: the project is a multimedia concept release. Each of the 10 songs on the tape has been interpreted into canvas artwork by various visual artists. Which is very next-level. M-Bomb even did a few pieces of art, himself. And the art was auctioned off last night at M-Bomb’s release party, with all proceeds ($500 in total) going towards UNITY Charity.

Look for the audio after the jump.
