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.

Ottawa, ON – On Apr. 5, our friends over at Kapacity Entertainment bring Beast Coast trip-hip-hop duo, The Underachievers, to Ottawa’s Ritual Nightclub (137 Besserer St) for a stop along their Eyes Of The World Tour. Opening support for the evening will be provided by Denzel Curry and Dillon Cooper. Doors open at 9 p.m. and the show goes down at 10 p.m. The UA duo (currently signed to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label) is gearing up to launch their debut album entitled The Cellar Door. They’ve already dropped some major teasing on us with that Ryan Hemsworth-produced “Incandescent” joint. So if we’re lucky, maybe they’ll hit us with some more new tuneage.

And because we like to deliver the goods, we’ve teamed up with Kapacity Entertainment to give away a pair of tickets to one lucky fan. Check out contest entry details after the jump.

GCP rapper JB launches new beer, Homer’s Premium Lager [News]


Toronto, ON – GCP recording artist and respected Toronto vet, JB, has launched a new project much different than the previous releases he’s come to be known for. This time JB is stepping into the alcohol business by launching his very own brand of beer known as Homer’s Premium Lager.

The Flemingdon Park entrepreneur held a private tasting of the brew last Thursday, March 20 and, as JB notes, the response has been incredibly positive:

Our first tasting event for the beer March 2014 went amazing. The event was held at The Corner Place Restaurant and Lounge on Jarvis St. in downtown Toronto. It was a huge success and customers loved my smooth, organic, low 178 calories lager.

CBC Music presents: Searchlight 2014 [News]


Toronto, ONCBC Music just launched its Searchlight 2014 competition to connect fans with their favourite up-and-coming Canadian artists. It’s a contest to give some shine – and some sweepstakes – to some of the best in Canada. As a fan, you can place 10 votes per region each day to help narrow down the competition to the semi-finals.

The grand prize winner receives $20,000 worth of music equipment from Yamaha Music Canada, a professional recording with CBC Music, and an opening spot on a high-profile music showcase. So this is a great way to show support to your favourites. You may not be able to gift your favourite rap-cat with $20,000 worth of Yamaha swag to advance his/her career. But if you troll the Internet and place those 10 daily votes, you can definitely assist in getting him/her that monstrously epic grand prize – which includes Yamaha swag.

Several of our favourite artists are participating in Searchlight 2014, and have reached out to let us know. So keep a look out for Buck N’ Nice (from Ottawa), Pimpton (from Regina), Rebecca Dawn and Jayzen (Calgary), Ursa Maja (Moose Jaw), Spesh K (Toronto), and more. And if you’re participating in Searchlight 2014, feel free to leave us a link to your CBC profile in the comment section below, and we’ll add you in to this post. Best of luck to everyone. Looking forward to seeing Canadian hip-hop in the Searchlight.
