R.O.M.I – G.T.A [Audio]

Vancouver, B.C - R.O.M.I. (Rise of My Inspiration) is a creative collective comprised of Johannesburg born rapper/producer Futonious Don III and Dubai/United Arab Emirates bred SoULBOi. ”G.T.A” is there latest release and will be part of the group’s forthcoming album R.O.M.I. [I] EP. 

In the making of this porno-inspired track, Futonious Don III’s verses were originally intended as outtakes but incorporated into the track to further express the group’s style. The track has a strong dark beat, but starts off with a romantic soulful intro that quickly melts into sexy descriptions of some first class ass. The lyrics are witty and the bass is a dancefloor’s dream- it should come ready with strobe lights. Check out this sexy track down below.

The Good, The Bad & The Strange: Artist to Artist with Tech N9ne [Interview]

Vancouver, BCOriginally published September 11, 2014Tech N9ne is no stranger to touring. Arguably one of the hardest working artists in the music game, he tours relentlessly to support his numerous releases and grinds not only for himself, but to showcase his talented roster at Strange Music. The Canadian West has been a stop on his tour route for quite some time and his fan-base in Vancouver is not only large enough to sell out The Commodore Ballroom on an annual basis but it seems to be growing with no end it sight.

We had a moment to catch up with Tech before his 19-date Stangeulation Canadian Tour for our latest Artist to Artist series. The interview was conducted by local emcee, Hungry from Vancouver rap clique Northwest Division and we thought the pairing was quite appropriate considering the growing attention set on Hungry and his crew.  

We got a few interesting responses from the Strange Music boss on his latest project, his team at Strange Music and some of the big name artists he once tried to sign to the growing independent label. Check out our latest Artist to Artist series with Tech N9ne below.

The Good, The Bad and The Strange: Artist to Artist with Tech N9ne [Interview] -

I don’t sign anybody that can’t out rap me. These are Strange artists and I hold them very high in the lyrical bracket, you know ’cause most emcees in hip-hop aren’t real lyricists but these guys are.” – Tech N9ne
