Sean Leon of ixxi’s Kobe Bryant-influenced single, “81” is our Song of the Day

Toronto, ON – New music from rising star Sean Leon of the ixxi fam. This is “81,” produced by Eestbound, paying homage to Kobe Bryant’s 81-point game against Toronto on January 22, 2006, leading the Lakers past the Raptors 122-104. Kobe’s performance is the second most-prolific in NBA history, behind Wilt Chamberlain’s world-famous 100-point domination in 1962 against the New York Knicks.

“81” is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day. Sean Leon (aka Maui Slim) is without a doubt one of the hottest artists coming out of Toronto Canada right now. Along with the not-so-subtle comparison to rare and exceptional greatness by referencing the Kobe Bryant feat, Maui goes as far as predicting his rise to stardom over the course of the next 6 months. “Fuck with me now, pussy come fuck with me now / in 6 months imma be fucking the world, I ain’t fucking around.” Whether his timeline is accurate or not, we’re definitely excited to see what he’s got coming. #BlackSheepNirvana

VNCHY – Broke Dreams (Prod. Prezident Jeff) [Audio]

Ottawa, ON – Ottawa rapper VNCHY just released his latest single titled “Broke Dreams” off his forthcoming Neverland EP.

VNCHY comes in over top of a Prezident Jeff beat, and hits us with that signature raspy delivery that I’m still losing my ish over. He delivers a deeply introspective track about being the biproduct of middle child syndrome. The situations that seemingly held VNCHY back in his youth are the same situations that made him the ruthless hungry rapper that he is today.

John River – Get Down [Video]

Mississauga, ONUpdated July 11, 2015: Everyone is getting their knickers in a knot over the fact that this track samples “Get Down” by James Arthur. So just to clarify that’s the sample used on here. Also to clarify: “Get Down” by James Arthur samples “N.T.” by Kool & the Gang. Also to clarify: sampling is pretty standard practiceJohn River just released new visuals for “Get Down” off his forthcoming mixtape entitled The Storm. “Get Down” is a summer party anthem of supreme status. John uses the track to celebrate the success 2015 has brought him, while giving a nod to his city (shout-out to Mississauga), and his kin. The video was directed by Abstrakte and produced by MadRuk Ent.

So in case y’all been sleeping, John received an MMVA nomination for “Hope City II,” competing against the likes of Naturally Born Strangers, SonReal, P. Reign and Tory Lanez. John also blessed us with a TEDx talk back in April. Big things are finally happening for the kid. It’s about damn time, no?

Bane – Influences (Prod. D.R.O.) [Audio]

Brampton, ON – After releasing a monstrous video for “Cocaine Art Gallery,” Bane delivers fresh audio for his latest single titled “Influences.”

Bane comes in over top of a dark esoteric future beat, courtesy of D.R.O. D.R.O. bangs out this haunting minor key melody. And then he throws in some 808s. So it’s got this eerie mix of feelings. It’s turnt. It’s faded. And it’s lonely AF. Bane takes us through a very dark commentary on the two major influences that keep his world running. Check it out below.
