Tobias finally “Lost It” on this new video


Toronto, ONTobias (formerly Bias Truth) just hit us with this new video for “Lost It.” We’ve come to know Tobias as one of the most uplifting spiritual rappers out of the T Dot. But he’s got his breaking points just like everyone else.

What he’s showing us on this track is the raw struggle and emotional conflict that comes hand-in-hand with hopelessness: “Time and time again/ Tryna make a way/ Grind 24/7/ That’s the day to day/ Birthday passed/ Still ain’t seeing cake/ How much more can a young black brother take?”

Song of the Day: Sese announces second single off The Cell Saga, “Super Kamehameha”


St. Catharines, ON – Building off the success of the Pops-produced “Perfect Cell,” Nightmare Klub hip-hop artist Sese has announced the second single off his acclaimed new mixtape, The Cell Saga, as well as the release date for the song’s accompanying music video.

With Chef Byer (OB O’Brien, Ryan Leslie) behind the boards, Sese pushes his personification of the Dragon Ball Z character Cell even further with “Super Kamehameha.”

Fitting perfectly with Sese’s sharp tongue and lyrical wit, the song brings to life an advanced and more powerful version of the Kamehameha, which is the most widely used finishing attack in the popular DBZ universe.

“Super Kamehameha” is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day.

Johnny Darko is going to SXSW so he linked with Jake Bluez & Jigz The Flyer for “Metric System”


Toronto, ON – As he gears up for his stint at SXSW, Toronto rap vet Johnny Darko teams up with Jake Bluez (founder of the 1stone crew) and Jigz The Flyer for this new “Metric System” video.

Johnny sticks to his drudgey drug-fuelled trap M.O. but puts his own Northern spin on the track by giving a nod to the metric system. As Johnny explained to me: “I had been trying to get Jake and Jigz on a track together subconsciously for a while and then when Jake showed me the beat that ended up being “Metric System,” I knew Jigz would be the man for the hook.”

The track kicks off with a sweet little “F**kin’ kilos/ F**kin’ kilos” sample as the song intros. And then Johnny, Jake and Jigz go into a full-blown Metric appreciation turn-up. The video was shot By Justin Browne and Jarrett Maclean. Check it out below.
