Ottawa’s FLO shoots new “Révolution” video in Toronto TTC Subway [Video]

Toronto, ON – On a random winter’s day in Toronto, curious TTC passengers stared in bewilderment as a fellow traveller randomly stood up and started rapping in French. While the idle camera might have been a giveaway to something being in the works, they had no clue they were taking part of the new music video for Canadian-Haitian rapper FLO (who lives in Ottawa). The video is called “Révolution” and was shot and directed by BRBR TFO. Check it out after the jump link below.

If you’re in the Montreal area tonight, you can catch FLO live in concert as part of the Syli d’Or World Music Showcase. The event takes place inside Club Balattou (4372 Boulevard Saint-Laurent).

Ceerouse – H&M (Prod. Rel-J) [Audio]

Ottawa, ON – Up-and-coming Ottawa MC Ceerouse just hit us with a seriously raunchy NSFW joint titled “H&M.” So here’s the deal: Ceerouse found out his ex-girlfriend and former manager were having an affair. That’s probably one of the most devastating things that can happen – when your closest girl and your best friend stab you in the back and rip your heart straight out of your circulatory system.

So Ceerouse decided to fight back with his words by throwing some serious hostility on this joint. The wounds are fresh and Ceerouse is a sloppy mess of feelings. Seriously. The hook on this track is: “I got my ex-bitch f**king on my ex-best friend.” That’s the hook. That’s the part that gets stuck in your head. The malice is VERY real. Check it out below.
