Rashid St. James – We Like To Party (Prod. Solid Mas) [Video]

Toronto, ON - One month after the single release for “We Like To Party,” Rashid St. James just dropped the track’s accompanying video.

In case you slept on the song the first time around, here’s a breakdown of the song: Rashid took the song “We Like To Party” by the Vengaboys, and warped it into a real talk commentary on what the party scene is actually like. It’s a heavy look at the push-and-pull relationship we have with partying.

Yeah, you might wake up in some stranger’s bed with no recollection of the previous night. Yeah, you might have a crippling hangover. Yeah, you might still have a bit of Molly in your system. And yeah, you might really hate your life and regret everything that happened. But at the same time, something about it all keeps you coming back, and you sure as f**k can’t wait to do it all over again.

Shout-out to Solid Mas for cooking up one hella dark beat on this one. And shout-out to Pavel Ioudine for directing the video. Check it after the jump.

Shome – Kinda Sorta [Mixtape]

Charlotte, NC – New Orleans-native Shome releases his 8-track Kinda Sorta project which includes the track “Kill Bill” featuring Toronto’s DillanPonders, as well as guest appearances by Jerm9V, Elevator Jay, Senior and Nevamind. Nevamind and Jerm9V also contribute to the project’s production along with Soulful, Ryu Alexy, and Promise (a producer from Charlotte, not Toronto’s Promise). However, Kinda Sorta does feature production by Toronto’s own Tay Lewis on the DillanPonders collab.

HipHopCanada Associate Editor Sarah Jay dropped her take on the pair’s SwitchMedia-directed video for the single: “I feel like “Kill Bill/ Trill Bill” would have made for a solid name for this record. Because it’s two-part in nature. First, Shome hits us with hungry MC bars of slaughter-status. And then Dillan takes us into his wavy drug king reign. Shome is the ‘kill’ and DP is the ‘trill.’

We also highly recommend you check out “Road Trip,” featuring Charlotte MC Elevator Jay, Senior and and Nevamind. As Respect Mag’s Darien Talley put it, “each track has its own bang but ‘Road Trip’ has that down south funky sound that many don’t capture these days.”
