Toronto, ON – Young Smitty teams up with DNA Cinema for his latest video, “Young Nigga Stay Working.” The John Carter-produced single is a preview to Smitty’s New Beginnings EP dropping this summer. Check out the video below.
Ottawa, ON – Ceerouse and 2Tone recently teamed up to hit us with this brand new summer banger entitled “Adrenaline.” Ceerouse takes his typical dark grime sound and channels it into a rough raunchy flex-filled turn-up track.
This wouldn’t be a Ceerouse track without a few snide remarks and offensive bars. So while the hook gives a nod to Lil Jon and DJ Snake’s monstrous “Turn Down For What,” it also gives a shout-out to drunk-induced erectile dysfunction: “Adrenaline/ Can you feel the rush? / Baby girl trying ‘a make me bust/ I’m so drunk I can’t get it up, f**k/ Hold up a minute/ Hold up/ Turn down for what?”

Toronto, ON – Toronto rapper Jazz Cartier is the talk of the Toronto at the moment and he’s starting to get a lot of attention from outside of the city as well. The new album Marauding In Paradise is getting rave reviews from blogs and as can be seen on social media, a lot of people are checking for him. And with the buzz around the album starting to heat up, he’s already got a hot new single that’s not even featured on it.
A few hours ago Jazz released, “Always Up To Something” featuring DCF, directed by Jon Riera while the song was produced by MIP co-Executive Producer Michael Lantz. The video was produced by Rinku DasGupta for Mad Ruk Ent., the brains behind SonReal’s new hit video “For The Town.” A quick glance at the YouTube comments makes it clear Marauding In Paradise could do quite well for La Fleur, as it rightfully should. “Marauding in Paradise top 3 albums of the year so far, shit’s fire” – “I could’ve seen this placing on the album tracklist somewhere amongst the tracks before Switch. This was a really good one though.” – “Marauding In Paradise is pure fireeeee!”
We agree and have you still haven’t out Marauding In Paradise, check it out here. “Always Up To Something,” is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day.
