Toronto, ON - On Jan. 14, the good folks over at INK Entertainment bring ASAP Ferg and YG to Sound Academy for a monster co-headlined show of supremacy. This is the duo’s only Canadian stop along their BestCoast Connection mini-tour. So you’d best believe they’re coming correct.
This is an all-ages show. Doors open at 9 p.m., and tickets can be purchased over on Ticketmaster. For the record – you can also get in on a really fancy pantsy VIP meet-and-greet with either YG or Fergy Ferg. Yeah, it costs extra. But yeah, it’s totally worth it. I mean, not only do you get a meet, greet, and selfie. You also get a special exclusive snapback. Serious business.
And because we like to deliver the goods, we’ve teamed up with the INK fam to give away – not one, but – TWO pairs of tickets to the show. Peep the official show flyer, and check contest entry details after the jump.
Saskatoon, SK – Cquel recently released a new single on us titled “Unscripted” off his most recent October 2014 EP entitled Meal Ticket. The track (and entire EP – for the record) was produced by Relic – who y’all know is amongst the finest Canadian producers/rappers/he actually does everything on the scene right now.
This single is a floaty cloud rap jumble about Cquel’s perseverance through his unpredictable “Unscripted” life: “Most dudes will probably mail it in/ I weather the storm/ And face the wind/ Eventually sunny skies will turn to grey/ But that’s cool, man/ ‘Cause I’m okay.” Check it out below.
Halifax, NS – In keeping with our Top 10 posts for 2014, HipHopCanada’s own DJ IV put together a list of his Top 10 favourite videos coming out of Nova Scotia from the last year. It was hard to make this list, as it was. If you’re working – you know who you are – hopefully you’ll be on this list next year.
ODOD Films is taking home four of the Top 10 videos of the year. Trust me, these fellas are about to take over the game on a global scale. Don’t be surprised when you see ODOD logo – these fellas have been laying groundwork and the videos prove it.
