Dhamiri – Pay Up [Mixtape]

Toronto, ON – Loudica presents the latest release from London, UK/Toronto recording artist Dhamiri, in the form of Pay Up: The Mixtape. The project features 8-original bangers with production from Faze Miyake, Dark0, Spooky, Royal T, Tantrum, araabMUZIK, Lexi Banks and Indigo††:

Loyalty, trust and respect. To some, all three of those things are far more important than money. So then why does it seem like most are ready to give it all away for 15 minutes of fame? It’s hard to admit it, but you may meet many people in your life that will actually bring absolutely nothing to the table, while instantaneously expecting to be heard or seen on demand. Oddly enough, those same people are the first to leave when the hype dies down. This project is dedicated to those who stay true to themselves and to their peers because in this day and age everyone wants to be paid, but no one wants to pay up.

Rashid St. James – Hallelujah (Prod. SolidMas) [Video] #Premiere

Toronto, ONOriginally premiered on HipHopCanada on February 13, 2015 – Earlier on this month we hit you with the audio for “Hallelujah” by Rashid St. James off his forthcoming debut project entitled The Nightmare In The Afterhour. Now we’re pleased to announce that we’ve teamed up with the big homie to bring you the premiere of the accompanying visuals for the track, directed by Gino Sandoval of Rkulture.

In case you missed the audio drop, this track is one-part IDGAF, one-part self-acceptance, and two-parts grimy underground religious prayer. Rashid gets murky on a hard-as-nails SolidMas beat to hit us with one of the heaviest, emotionally-charged releases of the month. He takes us to church. And instead of asking us to get on our knees and beg forgiveness, he hands us a blunt and a red cup of drink and ushers us in to the party that is life.
