iSH – Rollin’ ft. Stef Lang [Video]

Toronto, ONOriginally published June 25, 2013 – It should be pointed out that the “Lyric Video” iSH posted for his single, “Rollin’” is more intricate than most people’s actual music videos. It comes across as a video but the actual music video (also dope) was posted a couple of months later.

iSH is now preparing for the release of his major label debut EP, Up & Up, which features “Rollin’ and six other bangers. “Rollin’” features Stef Lang and was heavily showcased at the 2012 London Olympic Games. The record was a Top 20 hit at CHR (Contemporary Hit Radio), Top 30 at HotAC (HitPredictor Artist Chart) and has garnered more than 400,000 YouTube views to date between the “lyric video” and official music video. Check it out below.

Bias Truth – No Reason [Audio]

Toronto, ON – T-Dot’s own rapper-producer Bias Truth recently released new audio for his free verse entitled “No Reason” off his forthcoming debut full-length free album, BMore BFore: The Revisit. Bias Truth comes across as quite a spiritual man. Get this: the only part on the joint where BT actually says “No Reason” is in this line: “No reason to question among his presence/ Praise hands to the sky.”

But despite the obvious religious undertone to that line, BT isn’t preaching religion. He’s looking at the importance of belief; and it’s up to you – as a listener – to interpret that as it best fits for you. Which is deep. Introspective feelings might happen. No, introspective feelings will happen. Check it out below.
