Calgary, AB – On Nov. 5, Calgary’s supreme hip-hop duo, Dragon Fli Empire, dropped their latest Mission Statement project at Republik Nightclub. We’ve been waiting since 2009 on this one—that’s the last time producer DJ Cosm and rapper Teekay released a DFE album together. The Mission Statement album release party went down in conjunction with Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth’s show in Calgary. It was only fitting to have one of Calgary’s most legendary rapper-producer duos on the same bill as one of the world’s most legendary rapper-producer duos.
DFE has been on the scene now for almost a decade. But in the last few years, Teekay and DJ Cosm have taken on a slew of side projects. But the classic DFE sound is always evident in their respective works—a touch of jazz, a lot of boom bap, and an easy-going mellow vibe. It’s an oldschool sound. And it’s always relevant.

Regina, SK – Remember how HipHopCanada sponsored that really dope A3C Hip Hop Festival down in Atlanta, GA last month? Well Pimpton went to the festival to give the prairies some solid hip-hop representation. And while he was there, he stepped up his game. Pimpton linked up with Atlanta super rapper, Future, for a dope new track titled “Foreign.” The track was produced by K.E. On The Track, and recorded at Souls Asylum Studios in Atlanta, GA. Pimpton was pretty stoked to be able to record in Souls Asylum — not only is it Atlanta’s go-to joint for hip-hop recording, but it is also one of T.I.’s favorite lurks. And Pimpton is a huge T.I. fan. Cute.
The rest of the track was mixed and mastered in Saskatchewan at Nebulus Entertainment. Give “Foreign” a listen after the jump, and head over to iTunes to purchase a copy of the single. Also, make sure you show Pimpton some love by requesting his Andre Nickatina-assisted banger, “Little Darrell,” via MuchVibe. Do it now.
