Atlanta, GA – Atlanta MC Cam Sheely recently teamed up with Ducko Mcfli and our very own Canadian producing national treasure – WondaGurl – for this new track titled “All The Money.”
Cam comes in over top of a spacey Ducko Mcfli and WondaGurl trap beat to hit us with a very important commentary about C.R.E.A.M (aka: living by the dollar, aka: only caring about money, etc). He goes all anecdotal on us and delivers a story about a girl moving to Atlanta to get that money. Obviously, she finds herself in a bit of a win-lose situation. She’s getting the paper, but ends aren’t necessarily justifying the means.
It’s not impossible to make stacks on stacks on stacks on stacks of cash. But not everyone can put themselves through the mental turmoil of what it takes to get that money: “She love how she livin/ But hate all the feelings.”
Prince Albert, SK – Prince Albert master-producer, Rayne Drop, just hit us with a fresh new free instrumental download for a beat entitled “Kingdoms Fall.”
This beat sounds very medieval. Which works. Because it’s titled “Kingdoms Fall.” I feel like this is an instrumental for when you’re preparing to go out to battle to destroy your opponents.
And if you want to get in on some Game of Thrones rap ish, I feel like this beat could be the catalyst for that, too. That, and songs about prepping for battle are really relatable in the rap game. You hungry rap cats are all on a mission to rise to the top of the Canadian rap hierarchy. This could be your new battle anthem beat. Check it out below.
Vancouver, BC – The underground music scene in any city is a good barometer for the success of its music industry. Hip-hop in Vancouver is not as strong as it is in Toronto but it is catching on fast. For the Trap House concert held this past weekend at Red Gate, local rappers arranged their homies from across Canada and the US to put on an underground rap night that proves hip-hop is alive in Vancouver.
The show was set to run from 8pm to 2 am, an ambitious 6 hours. With 14 acts and three DJs on set, the night promised to be quite busy. I arrived just as Vancouver’s fierce duo Northwest Division was wrapping up their energetic set. The boys were spitting incredibly fast rhymes and had warmed the crowd up into a party ready state.
Regina, SK – CJE’s (Crown Jewelz Entertainment) Blacktop released his first solo video, “Sacci Gucci Polo”, in support of his upcoming mixtape Everything’s All In Pieces.

Regina, SK – Hailing from the 306, B. Firme presents us with his latest video for “Nights Like This”. Shot and directed by Cory Maclean, the black and white video takes place with B. Firme and his crew on a late night on the town. Peep the video after the jump.
Edmonton, AB – Last winter, Edmonton-based rapper Jack Fire (formerly known as Jack Frost) released the official video for “House Arrest”. Directed by Sonik hip-hop, the video’s vintage feel adds to the vibe of song. Jack, un-shaven and scruffy, aimlessly mopes while confined inside of his home (something I’m sure we can all relate to after surviving a long winter). It’s enough to make you go crazy. Towards the end a clean-cut, suited and booted, Jack finally leaves the walls of his house to face the outside world. “House Arrest” is a single off of Jack’s mixtape Frost & Fire Vol. 2, which you can download on Bandcamp. Check the video below.
