The Ave In You: Clairmont The Second just gave Weston Road its very own anthem


Toronto, ON – Earlier this week, Toronto artist Clairmont The Second released a brand new single and accompanying video titled “The Ave In You.”

“The Ave In You” is an anthem for Clairmont’s own stomping grounds in the Weston neighbourhood. Clairmont delivers a visual that shows him whipping around in his hoopty, rapping about the pink walls and twin bed in his room, and swinging on the swing set while flossing about how much his girl and your girl like him.

The one thing that never ceases to impress me about Clairmont is how he’s one of the most DIY artists out there right now. Not only does he rap and sing and produce, but he also directs and oversees most of his own creative direction. This track was written, recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered by Clairmont, himself. He also directed the video. Check out the video and stream “The Ave In You” after the jump.

Mickey Blue releases “Anything” as the first single off his upcoming EP, What I Wouldn’t Do


Toronto, ON – Earlier this week Toronto vocalist Mickey Blue released a brand new track titled “Anything” as the first single off his upcoming sophomore EP What I Wouldn’t Do.

Produced by Markham-based producer Benstar, “Anything” is a downtempo love song about what happens when you’re trying to get that special someone back into your life, and you realize you’d be willing to do absolutely anything for them.

The track has a ’90s throwback R&B vibe, with a subtle drum line that keeps things bouncing. Mickey puts his heart out on his sleeve as he reflects on what exactly a relationship should look like and what he wants to be able to give to his girl: “You deserve the best/ And baby it’s the best when you call me your best friend/ Then we get to sexin/ Dinner in the evening/ Spending every weekend/ We don’t too much sleeping/ We too busy getting busy.”

What Are You On? Roy Woods teams up with Stwo for his latest release


Brampton, ON – Last night Brampton artist and OVO signee Roy Woods dropped off a brand new Stwo produced single titled “What Are You On?” This track comes to us only a couple of weeks after Roy released his “Say Less” freestyle in promo of his upcoming Say Less album.

“What Are You On” is the Roy Woods all-grown-up track that marks the end of an era, and the start of a new phase in his life: “They know this isn’t me but shit happens when you get older.” The track is backed by Stwo’s signature atmospheric, vibe-y engineering, and features a subtle dancehall inspired booty bounce drum line.

This is a track for late nights in the summer and getting lost in your thoughts. Roy’s gotten slightly jaded over the years, and he’s starting to reflect on his come up, the importance of respect, and why he does what he does on the daily: “I know what I’m meant for my n**ga/ I’m respected/ My life is for my people/ They been movin’ reckless.”
