inCredible – Mr. Alien (Mixtape) [Review]

Vancouver, BC – Vancouver emcee inCredible is quickly making a name for himself in the saturated modern hip-hop scene. From appearances on numerous Canadian blogs to being named a top 4 emcee at hip-hop competitions, there’s no denying his furious passion and gift for the craft. His latest effort, Mr. Alien is a 14-track mixtape that sounds dustier than your grandmothers gramophone. It is a tribute, an homage to an era that pioneered a sound and a generation. On Mr. Alien, inCredible is a hip-hop disciple paying his respects and at the same time breathing new life into old sails.

Ain’t No Love – Plummet [Video]

Toronto, ONAin’t No Love has just launched their new EP titled Plummet. So to get us all reeling on the new six-track project, the trio linked up with award-winning director and photographer, Indrani Pal-Chadhuri, to produce a 10-minute film featuring samples of all of the joints off the project.

This is actually so wavy. The camera follows queen sass Saidah (who – for the record – is one of my favourite ladies in the Canadian rap game right now) as she tries to escape the house party from hell. As a viewer, you get to take front-centre seat as a fly-on-the-wall.

What it all comes down to is that one person’s fantasy is just as easily another person’s hellish nightmare. Just as Saidah is so desperately trying to get out of the party, everyone else seems to be in a blissful state of party high.

The juxtaposition of everything is a bit of a mindf**k. You’ll realize that everything you know if a lie. Sort of. More so, you’ll realize that everything you know is very subjective. It’s all about perspective. And then there’s that one chick who has an alligator performing fellatio on her. WHAT IS THAT?!?!?!?! WHO DOES THAT!?!?!?!

Rayne Drop – Moment Of Zen ft. Casper The Ghost [Audio]

Prince Albert, SK - Saskatchewan super-producer – Rayne Drop – recently teamed up with Casper The Ghost (aka: one of my favourite underrated underground Canadian MCs right now) to hit us with this new joint titled “Moment Of Zen.”

This joint is so heavy, though. Holy crap-cans. I can’t believe y’all are sleeping on Casper. This is one of the most raw and real emotional commentaries I’ve heard in a while. Casper uses this track to make a plea to his higher power for just one small moment of zen before he dies.
