Matt Brevner – Pride ft. Stevie Ross [Video]


Vancouver, BC – When it comes to Vancouver talent there is no avoiding Matt Brevner and his serious ear for musical detail and direction of quality visuals. His whole B Sharp movement is unique and out-of-the-box while managing to maintain artistic integrity – there is nobody quite like him in Vancity and arguably the whole hip-hop game. From The Bushido Project with label mate Stevie Ross, the two come together on the stunning video for “Pride”.

“You just some carbon copies of the Rockys and the Jiggas/ and soon to be the Brevners once I’m pushing seven figures” – this dude is incredible and no doubt Vancity’s next to blow. Check the video below and cop The Bushido Project here.

King Reign – Promo [Video]


Toronto, ONKing Reign has dropped off his latest video release; this time for his self-produced (and directed) single “Promo.” You can find the song on his highly anticipated album debut, Sincere, coming out on CLK Creative and Reign Music on July 14. You can find more information below and the video can be found after the jump.

Following a captivating performance at Canadian Music Week, King Reign will hit the stage once again for the album release party taking place at The Rivoli on July 17. The versatile rapper, producer, filmmaker, and storyteller is excited to return to the spotlight to debut Sincere, which he is confident will give listeners a chance to hear the real King Reign – “The majority of the album is storytelling – it’s named Sincere as just another way to say ‘true story’. The stories that I tell on that, 98 percent are what I’ve experienced; stories that I’ve wanted to talk about for a long time.”

A large portion of the album is with production from notable up-and-comers like Gameboy, Rich Kidd, Pro Logic, Agile, and Darp Malone. The release is Reign’s first full-length album and follows three EPs: Reign Music Volumes 1 & 2 (2010 and 2013, respectively), and 2012’s The Audacity of Hope. The social and politically-charged video for the album’s first single, “Killer,” was produced, directed, and edited by Reign.

Sese – Comfortable (Week 7) [Audio] #ThisWasMyShit


St. Catharines, ON -The #ThisWasMyShit continues as Sese goes in on Lil Wayne’s “Comfortable” instrumental. The song, produced by Kanye West, was originally featured on Weezy’s critically acclaimed album, Tha Carter III, which was released on June 9, 2008. Sese’s take on “Comfortable” is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day.

“During the year 2008, one would say it was hard for anyone in the hip-hop stratosphere to down play the impact of a budding icon by the name of Dewayne ‘Lil Wayne’ Carter. Just a few years before that, the self proclaimed ‘Best Rapper Alive’ would start an assault on the mixtape circuit that would commence his ascension into hip-hop royalty. For this weeks #TWMS release, Sese goes in over Lil Wayne’s ‘Comfortable’ instrumental off his critically acclaimed album, Tha Carter 3. Listen as the rapper also known as Sayzor Ramone shows his listeners and fans as to why he is so comfortable behind the microphone. Here is the #TWMS Week 7 release, ‘Comfortable.’”

Get ready for Pemberton Music Festival: July 16 – 20 [News]


Pemberton, BC – HUKA Entertainment has partnered with Molson Canadian, SiriusXM Canada, and Somersby Cider to bring us a supremely monstrous Pemberton Music Festival this year. Pemberton Music Festival was expanded into a five-day festival that will take place from July 16 through July 20 in Pemberton, BC. The festival features nearly 100 performances in six separate performance areas (two main stages, two secondary stages, a dance tent and a comedy area). That’s five hard-hitting days full of music, comedy, and camping in beautiful British Columbia.

But let’s get into the details of supreme importance, here. Y’all want to know the headlining hip-hop acts. Am I right? Okay. Take a deep breath. Because you’re going to lose it…Headliners for 2014 include Outkast, Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Chance The Rapper, ScHoolboy Q, Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Flying Lotus, araabMUZIK, Tory Lanez, and more. Insane. Right?

Festival passes are available for purchase online, and range in price from $299 (general admission) to $1499 (super V.I.P. admission). With each ticket purchase, you must either choose a camping pass or shuttle pass. If you’re opting not to camp on the festival grounds, the good folks over at Pemberton Music Festival have set up a handy-dandy lodging page on the festival site with more information for those seeking accommodations in the Whistler area. And what’s more – if you have extra room in your vehicles or are in need of transportation to-and-from the festival, a festival ride share program has been set up for your convenience. Details on the program can be found over here. HUKA has also introduced a “Pretty Awesome Shuttles” program to provide incentives to non-camping festival attendees making use of the shuttle program. Peep the official festival flyer and more information after the jump.

E-Town brings out the block: Hip Hop in the Park 2014 [Review]


Edmonton, AB – On May 31, the Hip Hop in the Park foundation brought us the seventh instalment of Edmonton’s Hip Hop in the Park Festival. This year the foundation took a new spin on the vibe of the annual event – by hosting a block party in the parking lot of the Naked Cyber Café. The hip-hop gods were watching over us that sunny Saturday afternoon; the hot weather made for a perfect day to kick-off the summer season and celebrate all the elements of YEG hip-hop.

This year – the event seemed to draw a smaller crowd compared to the Louise McKinney Park (which was the usual spot in past years). However, the turnaround of people coming in and out was consistent throughout the event. We were graced with performances from the likes of E-City Entertainment, Meeko G, Arlo Maverick, Moto, Muta Tao, Def in it, Parab Poet, The Hip Hop Hippies, Ras Bee, Raw by Design, Coli Con, Party Quest Crew, Theft Unda 5, Doobyis, MC Freedom, C.E.O., Brothers Grim, Lovely, Jaze Dubya, and the Liberators. It didn’t just end at the stage either; face painting, henna tattoos, local graffiti artists, and a showcase of Bboys and Bgirls were all on deck. To top that off – the foundation provided a free BBQ.
