Toronto, ON – Jane Street rapper Sling Dadz drops his new video for the C-Sharp of HWB-produced “They Watching.” The video was directed by RodZilla of Pro League Films. It was filmed in the Trethewey Drive Housing Project on the southbound of Jane Street in the North York section of the city of Toronto. Sling Dadz describes how in everything we do every single day… someone is watching what you’re doing, even if you can’t seem them! Check it out.
Toronto, ON – Johnny Darko just released a two-part video for his tracks “Smoke.Drink.Live.” and “P.B.R.” off his Love Triangles release.
Johnny is an up-and-comer who I’m keeping tabs on right now because he’s one of few Toronto rappers who doesn’t actually make Toronto rap. Instead, he does his own variation on cloud rap. He always picks up the most smoked-out beats and hits us with vibey bars and delivery. This video was shot by Mike Rhodes during Johnny’s recent trip to Brooklyn. Check it out after the jump.

The ShotByDolo-directed video also features K Sizzle going in on French Montana’s “Only If For A Night,” which samples Florence + The Machine’s song by the same name.
Kitchener, ON – It’s been a long minute since we’ve heard from young Kitchener MC, Pizzy Only. But Pizzy is back. And he’s back with a fresh new collaboration joint with A$AP Ant and King Kitch titled “KEEPROLLiN.”
This is one hungry comeback track for homie Pizzy. He uses this track to teach us about the importance of persistence. He’s going to KEEPROLLiN. I feel like Pizzy is sitting down at the table with a fork and knife, just itching at the idea of eating all of his rapper peers for breakfast. Seriously. He’s hungry AF. These are rapid-fire verses shooting off, right here. And that Yousif production is pure murky grimy greatness. I hope they add a few more rappers to this and release a posse cut version. That would make me so happy. Check it out.
