Black Ghosts: Seth Dyer explains why making music about injustice & racism is not enough


Toronto, ON – Toronto artist Seth Dyer recently released a heavy new self-produced track titled “Black Ghosts.”

“Black Ghosts” is in memoriam of black people who have been unjustly murdered. It’s a sobering song with a haunting beat scattered with eerie choral vocals and a hard-hitting drumline. “Black Ghosts” also features some of Seth’s most powerful lyricism, thus far. The song rides out as Seth repeats one question for his listeners: “Don’t I live in the same world as you?”

HipHopCanada caught up with Seth to chat about the track and he explained that even though making music about racial injustice is important, it’s not enough to make a change. In order to make a change, action needs to be taken. Take in “Black Ghosts” below, and peep our Q&A with Seth after the jump.

Don Mulatto’s memory kept alive with the posthumous release of Donny Snowbird


Sault Ste. Marie, ON – It’s been two months since the sudden passing of my friend and talented Canadian hip-hop rapper, Justice “Don Mulatto” Levar. The people closest to him will tell you that time hasn’t made coping with his loss any easier.

Justice was a true workhorse and recorded more music than you’d expect he’d even be able to keep track of. But he did, repeatedly coordinating multiple mixtape releases while promoting the projects he had already dropped; improving each step of the way. He even pulled the trigger on a project had been working on while almost completely immobilized in a hospital bed. He was incredibly dedicated to his craft and one of the most goodhearted people I’ve worked with in the Canadian scene. Lucky for me, family, friends, and fans, and anyone who didn’t get a chance to meet him, Justice left us a large catalogue of music that will surely keep his memory alive.

We caught up with LostSoulsClub artist Brøcc to talk about his new track “Wet Wet”


Brampton, ON – Earlier this month, LostSoulsClub artist Brøcc released a new track titled “Wet Wet” (produced by Axsthxtic).

We’re already familiar with solo work from LSC artists Nēgu$ and Zsay, but we’re only starting to get to know the rest of the guys in the LSC collective.

“Wet Wet” serves as an introduction to Brøcc as an artist. According to Brøcc, “Wet Wet” is a wave that he’s riding out on right now. “Wet Wet” is all about the inception of a new movement and the excitement that comes with it; fans and listeners getting “Wet Wet” about the music, Brøcc getting “Wet Wet” about the direction he’s headed in, and (of course) the females getting hella “Wet Wet”.
