Theo3, Adam Bomb & Korry Deez – Significant [Audio] #SOTD

Toronto, ON – Three of Toronto’s prominent hip-hop MCs, Theo3 (Camp X/Freedom Writers), Korry Deez (Irs/Monolith) and Adam Bomb (Freedom Writers/Natural Born Strangers) unleash monstrous verses over a pounding Lancecape production.

Each MC displays what significant means to them. The track is witty, aggressive and nothing short of what a proper posse track should be. It furthermore displays that hip-hop is alive and well north of the US border.

Get ready to snap your neck to a real, “SIGNIFICANT” banger – HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day.

Lee’On – Promoted [Audio]

Edmonton, AB – Hailing from the up-and-coming KreepZone crew, Lee’On gives us those good vibes on “Promoted” (a single from his forthcoming mixtape with a title that is yet to be released). Producer Tay Lewis lays down the track with smooth chill beats, that have a hint of instrumentals.

Lee’On stays consistent with his rhymes –and the title, for that matter– right through to the outro: “You was there when I was broke/ So you’ll be there when I’mma see the money.” That’s a promotion. Take a listen and stay tuned for more from Lee’On and the KreepZone camp.

KAi Sky Walker – New Mind | Old Soul : [Chapter IV] [Review]

Vancouver, BC –  Fresh off his critically acclaimed mixtape, #NEOKAi Sky Walker has devised a ground breaking concept for his latest endeavour, New Mind | Old Soul. Breaking off from the conventional release method, NMOS is designed to keep listeners on edge – eagerly awaiting more, yet completely oblivious as to what is next. Chapter IV sees KAi Sky Walker rap over 90s inspired beats. Resurrecting multiple samples and flows from legends such as Notorious B.I.G., 2Pac and Jay Z, juxtaposing the young Canadian amongst some of raps all-time greats. Did we mention samples? Lots and lots of samples. Hopefully whoever was responsible for file management on his album was paid well. Respect.

JD Era – BARZ Volume 1 [Mixtape] #Premiere

Toronto, ON – Once tucked in the shadows of the black market, this raw commodity has seen its stock rise exponentially in the past several years, with no signs of slowing down. The highly anticipated BARZ Volume 1 mixtape from Juno-nominated rapper JD Era has been released and is available immediately for free download.

Era has been dropping tracks for 9 straight weeks in a series known as #EraFriday, leading up to the release of his first official project since 2012’s No Handouts. BARZ, mixed by DJ T.LO, was crafted with bringing back the essence of hip-hop culture in mind and living up to the original definition of what hip-hop considered a “mixtape.

With “Rice In Chinatown,” which received stunning visual support from director Machete Cortez, along with the Cameo-supported “Candy” or the RoadsArt-produced banger “That Ain’t My Style,” JD Era has given ample reasons to take in BARZ in it’s entirety. It’s cut like a 90’s classic, and set to make your speakers pop. To break it down, in this game, if you don’t have BARZ, you don’t have anything.

And as Era himself points out, BARZ is just an appetizer for bigger things to come:

BARZ is something I’m giving the fans until I drop the main course this summer! Enjoy.

Gabriel Lis – Bright Nights [Audio]

Toronto, ON – Only a few weeks ago, Torontonian producer Gabriel Lis dropped his instrumental track “Bright Nights,” which appears on his recently released full length album entitled T.O.T.O. II.

If there’s one thing that continues to impress me in the hip-hop game, it is – no doubt – artists and producers who sport all-out versatility. With this instrumental (that sounds better aligned to be featured on the soundtrack for a big-budget major-motion picture), Gabriel Lis drops two interconnect beats that give listeners a wonderful sample of his duplicitous styles. Check it out.

Hydeff – Dr J & Mr H (Part 1) [Audio]

Toronto, ONHydeff recently released “Dr J & Mr H (Part 1).” The Shady Shaman’s latest track to-date hears this sorcerer MC hitting new profound notes with his smooth production and unrivalled vocal delivery.

Since I’ve been following Hydeff’s journey, I’ve noticed this Toronto-based rapper’s style becoming increasingly clean, and better focused on highlighting his incomparable prowess on the mic. On this beat –  this soulful beat – Hydeff kicks off with rhymes that visualize the light and dark of the dual worlds this young street poet from Toronto resides in. Check it out.
