Song of the Day: MTL’s Thomas White, WYLN & Wasiu remix Drake’s “No Tellin'”

Montreal, QC – “The hip-hop voice of Montreal,” Wasiu, teams up with Thomas White and WYLN for a new remix to Drake’s “No Tellin'”. The original “No Tellin'” appears on Drizzy’s record breaking If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late project, and the original song was produced by Boi-1da and Frank Dukes.

Wasiu: “This remix really expands on the meaning of ‘No Tellin’.’ For starters, it is simultaneous for no snitching – One must not tell on others, the most basic commandment. If this law is broken, then there’s No Tellin’ what their fate has in store for them. Guesses may be taken, but are not restricted to the possibilities laid out in the 1st verse.”

The “No Tellin'” remix is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day.

Right Here: MTL’s Thomas White teams up with Bad Taste Records UK for new release

Montreal, QC – Real City producer/DJ Thomas White teams up with UK’s Timbah (Nottingham/Sheffield) for a new release on Bad Taste Records UK. The Right Here EP (depending on your definition of EP) contains just 2 tracks but both are complete gems. There is the tile track, “Right Here,” and another titled “Love Letter.” Would love to see an MC put their own spin on either of these records. Check out the Right Here EP below.

Immerze & MFTHM go deep on the heartbreak with Usher-sampled “Vanessa”

Vancouver, BCImmerze just hit us with his latest single release titled “Vanessa,” off the forthcoming Room Two Twenty One EP (which is due out on July 21). And this is one of the most emotional Immerze joints I’ve heard. Shouts to the man. I like when you rap about the feels.

Immerze penned this track after watching his best friend’s relationship fall apart. “Vanessa” isn’t actually the girl’s name, FOR THE RECORD. Immerze just doesn’t like the name “Vanessa” so he scapegoated it on this track. But you’ve probably encountered a Vanessa somewhere at some time: she leaves you dented real good. And this track is all about moving on from that heartbreak. Check it out.
