I went to a Hedley show to watch Classified and Mike Boyd open [Review]

Edmonton, AB – On Friday Apr. 4, the good people over at Live Nation brought Hedley to Edmonton’s Rexall Place for a stop along the B.C. band’s Wild Life Tour. Which is cool, and stuff. But I actually went to the show to watch Classified and Mike Boyd open things up. Because reasons. Oh, and T-Dot’s own D.O. (aka: Defy The Odds) was there, too.

So let’s break it down. Class’ little brother – Mike Boyd – dropped his …Note The Sarcasm LP at the end of March. And then he made the announcement that he’d be joining Class on the tour. So Classified’s opening set was actually a Mike Boyd and Classified opening set. And the bromance love was serious. I mean – think about it: Class gave up a solid chunk of his opening slot to introduce his fan-base to his brother’s music. So in addition to performing the Classified classics (like that new “Higher” joint that’s roasting up the airwaves right now), Classified was quick to get things into the Mike Boyd portion of the night.

Three 6 Mafia & DJ Smallz talk Dirty South, weed, & more in Vancouver [Video]

Vancouver, BC#Throwback: Originally published June 13, 2011Three 6 Mafia knows how to have a good time. As demonstrated by their last set of performances on the West Coast, they know how to bring the crowd into their fun as well: specifically the ladies. Specifically the ones who like to take off their clothes. Yikes. HipHopCanada’s Amalia Judith braved the rather rowdy hotel room of Juicy J, DJ Paul and their good buddy DJ Smallz to get some questions in between drinks. They filled HHC in on the important issues, like the best kind of weed, the evolution of giving the people what they want, and there may have been something about nuts in your mouth as well. Without further ado, Three 6 Mafia.

PARTYNEXTDOOR – West District [Audio]

Mississauga, ON – Remember how Drake dropped “Days In The East” over that Shebib-assisted PARTYNEXTDOOR beat last week? Well PARTYNEXTDOOR just flipped it and reversed it. The OVO protege has just released “West District”; his own personal take on the beat.

Last week Drake was opening up to us about tea-sipping with Erykah Badu, and love, and life, and emotions. And now PND is getting real about his inability to stick to the one-night-stand status-quo. He wants his booty call to last forever: “Tell me baby if I f**k you right/ Can I f**k forever?” This is – essentially – the best will-you-be-my-girlfriend pick-up line that ever happened. ‘Na mean? Check it below.

DillanPonders – Selling Dreams ft. SeT [Video]

Toronto, ONDillanPonders (of SmashMouth Entertainment) just dropped his latest visuals for “Selling Dreams” off of the NUMB EP. DillanPonders is a trip and a half. And this joint gets pretty gnarly.

I mean, we know that DP isn’t sober on this, and we know he’s just shooting the ish with us. But that’s what hits it home. Because – like Dillan – we’re all caving to vices that we don’t intend to get rid of. The drugs are a metaphor, guys. The selling of dreams is real. The track was produced by Tay Lewis, and the video was directed by Dresblog. Check it out.
