Immerze – Lit (Prod. Mike F the Hitman) [Audio]

Vancouver, BCImmerze recently released the first single off his forthcoming Room 221 EP entitled “Lit.” This joint is gnarly hard. Immerze goes in over top of some grimy Mike F the Hitman production and gets us lit on life. Holy ambition, dude. Listening to this makes me want to get sh*t done.

For the record: there are two types of “Lit” joints that happen in the rap game. The first is the vibed-out weed rap track about getting lit, smoking out, and floating along in the dreamy cloud rap highlands.

The second kind of “Lit” song that happens is the really hungry song where homie gets LIIIITTTT and wilds out, and then decides to take his game to the next level and devour everything in sight. This track is the latter of the two.

Talented producer, UTVMG’s Acres killed in Calgary; suspect charged [News]

Calgary, AB – Canada has lost another talented artist to violence. Producer Jaimend Roberto Orellana-Sincuir, also known as Acres, was shot multiple times on Sunday in Winston Heights, in the north-east quadrant of Calgary.

Acres, originally from St. Catharines, ON was a member of UTVMG or UnionTvMusicGroup along with artists/producers like Sese, Chui, Jmak and Thoby G. Sese, as well as other friends and family, has been very vocal on social media about the disgust for the murder and they’ve vowed to help Acres’ music “live on forever.” Acres posted his music to SoundCloud, juggling back and forth between remixes and original records. He produced on Sese’s 2013 project Age of Aquarius and was also a major contributor to the UTVMG compilation.

FriskOLAY – Booty [Video]

Phoenix, AZ – Southern rap’s new wave up-and-comer FriskOLAY just dropped the heat (and the booty) with his latest video single release titled “Booty.” Homie is not Canadian but I got to meet him in Calgary when he rolled through on the Rich Homie Quan Tour a few weeks back. And his performance set is LIVE. So when I seen that he dropped a new video, I had to post it up for you.

“Booty” is all about butts. Butts everywhere; butts clapping, butts swanging, butts bouncing, and butts popping. This in an appreciation joint that gives highest of praise to the ass. You know when you go to the club and there’s that one trappy banger that all the girls are hopping on stage and twerking on? This is that song. Check it out after the jump.

DillanPonders – Energy (Remix) [Audio]

Toronto, ON - DillanPonders recently dropped the ball on us with a monster remix to “Energy” off the shell-shock that was Drake’s If You Are Reading This Its Too Late.

Dillan has a monster work flow. He always manages to be the first – if not one of the first – people to remix heat when it drops. While the rest of y’all are still penning that first verse on your “Energy” remixes or working out your first couple of bars, DP has already rapid-fired his way through the entire song and posted it up on his SoundCloud for the people to take in. His hustle sets the bar. If you decide to release an “Energy” remix (which you probably will, because – let’s face it – Drake joints are the epitome of remix material), cats are going to compare you to Dillan. My condolences.

#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.”
