Mississauga artist Kaydee delivers his “Mission Statement” video


Mississauga, ONKaydee just hit us with some fresh new good good with his latest video release for “Mission Statement.” While y’all are probably familiar with Kaydee as more of a boom-bap artist, this track is a huge switch for the homie.

After dropping The Transition in November 2014, Kaydee took a bit of a hiatus. Usually I’m not too fond of hiatuses because I find artists tend to lose steam when they stay away from the rap game for too long. But I’m reeling over this video right now. It feels like the last few months of Kaydee’s absence all got crushed and condensed into this one joint. There’s so much energy on here. Kaydee fires off his mission statement as a hungry warning to the rest of the rap game: Sauga is coming.

Meek Mill vs. Drake: Ghostwriting & The Missing DWMTM Tweet


Remember that time when Meek Mill had a mild social media tantrum because another artist didn’t tweet about his DWMTM album? Wale does. What started out as rush to be one of the first to post about Meek Mill dissing Drake quickly turned into a more drawn-out opinion piece to get some thoughts out… no need to rush. As a website this platform has run its course and we’re preparing for change. It’s a big process that’s thankfully underway and we’re excited to share it with you later this year. Until then our dedicated team will continue to post new music and new stories.


Philadelphia, PA – Well that escalated quickly… like zero to 100 but without any real drama. In the year 2015, the biggest rap beefs around have no diss tracks to speak of… not even a verse. You can’t help but wonder what KRS-One thinks of all this.

After a seemingly uneventful start to the week in hip-hop, The Meek Mill Show (later dubbed #WhenKeepingItRealGoesRight) kicked off on social media Tuesday night with brief cameos from regular cast members Rick Ross and Chris Brown, as well as a zinger by newcomer (and current Toronto city councillor) Norm Kelly and social commentary by Lupe Fiasco. Wale was noticeably absent but he’s likely still recovering from his fill of Meek Mill/DWMTM related Twitter drama from last July.
