Toronto, ON – SmashMouth Music Group rapper SeT just changed his name to iamSeTdoe and teamed up with Dir. T to hit us with this new audio release titled “Black Power Outage.”
The new iamSeTdoe stage name marks a big change in artistic direction for the young rap prince. While y’all are probably very familiar (or at least you SHOULD be) with SeT’s AuRa LP release, this track is fresh territory for the kid. SeT goes in a lot darker and brings us into his “Black Power Outage”: “I just got it/ So how could I lose it?/ Sippin’ on Moscato/ Why?/ ‘Cause I’m stupid.”

Vancouver, BC – Originally published June 5, 2015 – Emotionz is a Vancouver born and raised rapper who’s also gone into the business side of the industry. He started off his passion in childhood, recording his first song at the age of 6 and rapping at the young age of 9. It helps, of course, that his whole life he was no stranger to the world of music.
Emotionz mother and father were both involved in music and writing, his father, Paul Hyde, was in the Canadian new wave band The Payolas and so he and his sisters grew around talent and the studio. His sisters, as some may know, are the now famous twin musicians Dani and Lizzy, who’s song “Dancing in the Sky” went viral in 2013.
“Hip -hop also has really good morals at the core of it, it’s exciting and there’s dancing, there’s poetry, there’s movement, DJing, turntablism and unity – what festival doesn’t need to implement that? It’s not even about the genre, it’s the hip-hop skill and mentality is amazing to a lot of people across the board.” – Emotionz
