New music: VNCHY enlists the help of Bijan Amir for “Owens”

Toronto, ON VNCHY has just released his latest single titled “Owens” as a nod to the high fashion brand Rick Owens. This song has a militant feel to it and VNCHY uses the song to explain his self-motivated intentions. He wants y’all to know that being selfish isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Long story short – you need to be selfish in order to progress in the game: “I’m try ‘na hop up out the Coupe in ’em Owens/ Focus Michael Jordon/ Focus on the moment/ Serotonin ain’t important/ ‘Til them whips imported/ These bitches/ Imported/ F**k the love the showing dog/ Just know there ain’t limits to this.”

Vancouver, BC – And the beef just keeps being served. After yesterday’s rebuttal from Madchild, premiered Snak The Ripper’s second diss video “Child Abuse” early this morning in the Madchild vs Everybody story then shortly after they dropped a diss track from Vancouver’s Tre Nyce.

On top of adding his name to the list of people who have accused Madchild of nose deep in the coco, Tre also mentions The Rascalz Red1 getting into relations with Madchild ex (also mentioned in Snak’s “Child Abuse” video). Yikes.

How many emcees must diss Madchild before this is over? Check out Tre Nyce’s “#SADCHILD” below.

Snak The Ripper fires back at Madchild in less than 24 hours with this video for “Child Abuse”

Vancouver, BC – Yesterday afternoon Madchild finally responded to Snak The Ripper with the release of his diss track titled “The Funeral (Snak The Ripper Diss).” It’s been less than 24 hours and Snak The Ripper has already fired back with a new diss track and video titled “Child Abuse.”

It took Madchild five days to crank out his song, which was nearly six minutes long. Madchild claims he has been sober from cocaine for three years. Then he said Snak’s flow was stolen from ONYX, and that Stealth Bomb Records signee Merkules is ten times better than Snak.

Snak gets back on the offensive with this song by hitting Madchild with some more shots. He gets real personal on this response. Snak claims that Madchild drugs women with GHB when they don’t want to have sex with him. The video also includes a screenshot of a conversation Snak had with Moka Only, which discredits Madchild’s claim that Moka Only dislikes Snak. Then Snak gets REALLY personal and directs some of his bars at Madchild’s main bad bitch, Lola the puppy. Snak insinuates that Mad puts peanut butter on his lady bits for Lola to lick off.

Madchild fires back at Snak The Ripper with “The Funeral (Snak The Ripper Diss)”

Vancouver, BC – The Madchild diss response everyone has been waiting on has finally dropped. Snak The Ripper lit things up over the weekend with the release of his Madchild diss track titled “Assisted Suicide.”

Madchild fired back with a KOTD battle challenge and a few Instagram stabs at SDK’s merchandise before finally posting up an Instagram video where he claimed he was cooking up a response. We’ve been waiting all week for this to drop, and it’s finally here. And it is nearly six minutes long in its entirety.

In addition to firing shots at Snak’s style (which Madchild claims is mostly copped from ONYX), Madchild asserts that he hasn’t done cocaine in three years. He also says that he thinks SDK signee Merkules is TEN TIMES better than Snak The Ripper. He wraps the track by reissuing his battle challenge to Snak. He wants them to battle it out live. We’ll see how Snak responds to that one. In the meantime, check out Madchild’s diss track below.

New music: Jai Nitai Lotus, Shogun & CeasRock get “Standoffish”

Montreal, QC – Just before Halloween, Jai Nitai Lotus teamed up with fellow Montrealians Shogun and CeasRock to hit us with this fresh new release titled “Standoffish.” SPOILER ALERT: This bangs so hard and I am now overheating.

This is the second installation in Jai’s ‘One Off’ series of collaborations. The idea is to make organic collaborations that fuse Jai’s own artistic M.O. with that of other artists. We all know that Jai does a billion things – he produces, he raps, he does videos, etc. So when his talents mesh with other artists’ abilities, the end result is always going to be a breed of music you’ve never heard before. The first song in the series was “You I” which featured Ian Kamau. Jai hopes to release an additional few ‘One Off’ tracks by springtime.

Here’s how Jai explained the series to me: “I want to release songs that aren’t attached to any album but have a strong identity of their own – great pieces of art that get treated individually with artwork and sometimes videos.”

Jr. Fillion is “Up All Night” in his latest video release

London, ON – London artist Jr. Fillion recently released his latest visuals for “Up All Night” off his forthcoming Northern Lights album.

Jr. Fillion is at that point where he’s made his way past the elementary struggle rapper phase. He’s opened up some major shows, acquired a fan base, and flipped his life completely. This is the point where hunger starts to set in. Unlike Robin Thicke, Jr. is NOT up all night to get lucky. He’s up all night because he’s got a lot on the brain.

Jr. is starting to realize what he’s actually capable of striving for and he’s stoked AF: “This feeling could last a lifetime/ I can’t believe it’s right in front of me/ What you can do with the right mind/ If it’s a dream, I don’t want to leave.”
