Wolfpack – Light ‘Em Up (Prod. Rayne Drop) [Audio]

Prince Albert, SK – Saskatchewan’s own Wolfpack trio recently dropped another new audio release off the forthcoming Wolfpack EP. This joint is entitled “Light ‘Em Up.” And it actually samples – get this – a track by Fall Out Boy called “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark.” So it’s got this mash-up of rock influence underneath Mer and Chuck Woods’ showboat verses about being young and invincible. Unlike Fall Out Boy – because they are now old and less relevant. You feel me? Check “Light ‘Em Up” below.

J Coop – Intro (Self Reflection) [Video]

Toronto, ONJ Coop recently dropped new visuals on us for his “Intro (Self Reflection)” joint off his Self Reflection: Do I Stand Out? project. So obviously this is the first track off Self Reflection.

It’s cool because this track alternates between slowing down and then speeding up; almost as if to symbolize J Coop slowing down in life and then getting ahead of himself. Deep – Deep introspective self-reflection business. And that sets things off for the rest of the EP. The track was produced and engineered by Matt Law. Shouts to Matt for this production. Because it’s got that great summer jam vibe-out feel. The visuals were done by Tim D. Check it after the jump, and stream the project over here.

D.O. – Still In It (Prod. Classified) [Video]

Toronto, ON – Rapper and Northstarr label head D.O. (short for ‘Defy the Odds’) presents the newly released music video for the single, “Still In It,” off his new album, Down Home.

“‘Still In It’ is the first track on the album, but it’s the last song that Classified and I worked on for the project,” says D.O.

“We were trying to think of the best way to start it off. Class was playing me about fifty beats. Nothing was clicking. Then he pulled up a rough loop, but only played it for a few seconds before moving on. Instantly I was like ‘Yo what was that?!’ It was really rough so he made the beat on the spot. While he was working on the beat, I was thinking of the lyrics and flow. Since it’s the intro on the album, I wasn’t concerned with a hook. I just wanted to go in. I spend a lot of time in Amsterdam, so I thought this one would be cool to shoot while I was over there. People that are familiar with the city will recognize the spots – Central Station and Dam Square. Two of the landmarks of the city.”

“Still In It” was directed by Duane Gibson and Preetam Sengupta while editing was handled by Illvibe.
