Dele O – Feeling Like The $hit / One Night [Video]


Winnipeg, MBDele O recently hit us with new visuals he released for his tracks “Feeling Like The $hit” and “One Night.” It’s been a minute since we’ve heard some new tuneage from Dele O, but he’s been grinding on this new material all year. He actually also just released a new album via iTunes entitled Prodigal Son. You should probably take a peep at that, too.

Anyways, let’s get back to the video at-hand, here. Dele strikes a fine balance between that smooth R&B sound, and a hungrier hip-hop vibe. For the record: he both sings and raps. Which is dope. For “Feeling Like The $hit,” Dele teams up with DJ Takeova for the happiest sunniest song ever; about – you guessed it – feeling like the ish. Then things turn up and we get into “One Night.” It’s a total bounce-track. And it gives us a proper dose of Dele rap bars. Peep the visuals after the jump.

#PREMIERE: Pimpton – All The Sexy Girls [Video]


Regina, SK – HipHopCanada has teamed up with Pimpton (of C.J.E.) to debut his latest visuals for “All The Sexy Girls.” Pimpton’s been getting a lot of shine for his tuneage, lately (holla, MuchVibe) and we’re so stoked that he finally decided to drop another video on us. Pimpton’s been cranking out some of the hungriest turned-up up stoner-trap around. His videos are always too fresh. And this particular joint is all about showing loving to the ladies. Be warned, though: the Ekzakt beat on this track is one serious jelly-shaker.

The P Man gets downright lurky on us, here. He plays things out as the man in the mirror; that is, the man in the mirror playing witness to all the sexy girls. The girls are kicking it in their room: they’re doing their hair, and taking their clothes off, and having pillow fights. Basically, they’re playing out all of the mystical behind-closed-doors female activity that men fantasize about. And Pimpton gets to take it all in. Lucky dude. The video was directed by Li Dong (of 235 Films), and the track was mixed and mastered at Nebulus Entertainment. Check out the video premiere after the jump.

Mike Boyd’s Number 1′s: Iggy Azalea – Fancy ft. Mike Boyd [Audio]


Enfield, NSOriginally published May 30, 2014 – It’s that time of the week, again. Mike Boyd just launched the latest installation in his Number 1′s series. Here’s how the series goes down: each week, Mike records a verse to a #1 single; regardless of whether he loves it or hates it. These releases lead up to the premiere of Mike’s forthcoming single debut, “1 Hit Wonder.”

This week Mike gets into it with a verse over top of Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX’s “Fancy.” Before I even listened to the verse, I knew what was coming. This verse is 100 per cent Mike Boyd-ness. It’s got that self-deprecating dead-pan zing that makes Mike one of the funniest rap-cats on-the-come up. Peep the verse below. And if you haven’t done so, yet, you should probably head over to iTunes to cop a download of Mike’s …Note the Sarcasm project.

Mike Boyd’s “Fancy” is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day.

Nightshift Entertainment & Pearl Entertainment present Dizzy Wright in Edmonton [News]


Edmonton, ABOriginally published May 29, 2014 – Our friends over at Nightshift Entertainment and Pearl Entertainment just announced that they are bringing Funk Volume’s own Dizzy Wright to Encore at WEM (8882 170 St. NW) on July 23. This is just one of the many monster hip-hop shows going down in the YEG this summer. We’re so geeked on it. Remember how Dizzy made the 2013 freshman class via the “Peoples Choice” vote? And then dropped his latest State of Mind project back in April? And on top of all that, Hopsin’s indie Funk Volume label is blowing up on a whole other level. What I’m getting at here- is that you probably don’t want to miss out on this show.

Doors open at 9 p.m. Opening support for the evening will be provided by some of our favourite local cats including Doom Squad, Brothers Grim, K-Riz, Mitchell Lawler & Conch, Chubby C & Domino, and Parallel, with music from DJ Grizz throughout the night. First batch of general admission tickets are $20, and the second batch of tickets are $25. Tickets go on sale via Zoobis tomorrow, and will be available for purchase at ticket vendors on Monday. So cop those tickets. And roll through “Solo Dolo.” Or bring your homies. Or whatever you want. Just make sure you’re there. Peep the official event flyer after the jump. And head on over the the event’s Facebook page for more information. See you all at the show.
