Just Another Love Story: Quake Matthews discusses his longterm relationship with alcohol

Halifax, NS – East Coast rapper and one half of The Search duo, Quake Matthews just released a new solo cut in collaboration with Reeny Smith titled “Just Another Love Story.”

The track was produced by Classified and serves as a commentary on the parallel between romantic relationships and Quake’s own relationship with alcohol over the last decade. Quake personified alcohol as a female he’s having relations with, and he takes us through the highs and lows of trying to navigate a love story.

It’s not a glorification of drinking; and it’s definitely not a write-off on drinking for Quake, either. It’s simply a look at both the joy and devastation that go hand-in-hand with any relationship. Check out “Just Another Love Story” below, and scope our Q&A with Quake after the jump.

Ottawa’s King Tutt gets “Excessive” in hot new video

Ottawa, ON – Ottawa recording artist King Tutt returns with impressive new visuals powered by Hawk Eye Creations. In less than 72 hours, the “Excessive” video has received over 12,500 views with no signs of slowing down.

The video, brought to you by Kings of the Jungles, was slickly woven together in a manner that showcases Tutt’s lifestyle, shows love to his Ledbury Ave. squad, pays homage to the city he represents, and still tells a bit of a story.

With crisp aerial shots of his hood and various locations around Ottawa, the song starts off with the catchy hook as Tutt asserts his command of attention and boss status. He makes a pick-up, Timmy’s cup in hand, and as the story of that package unfolds, Tutt lives it up on a yacht with his team, kicks it with the crew back home and drifts into doing donuts with luxury cars.

A perfect approach for a song called “Excessive” and it should do good things for Tutt’s move to push his career forward. Check it out below.
