DillanPonders – Grunge (Prod. GoldSoulBeats) [Audio]

Toronto, ON - DillanPonders just hit us with his latest single release titled “Grunge.” If you’re even slightly familiar with DP, you’ll know that he is the closest thing to grunge hip-hop you’ll find – both in character and musicality. He’s deliberately untidy and uncoordinated. And his outlook is pretty bleak – I mean, the dude lives in a winter wonderland 24/7. And by winter wonderland, I mean white powder. And by white powder, I mean cocaine. DillanPonders is the grunge lord.

This track kicks off with some sludgy chords on a GoldSoulBeats beat. And then DP comes in on the grunge raps: “Hair like Britney/ Nose full of Christina.” For the record, neither Britney Spears nor Christina Aguilera were particularly grunge. But Dillan’s rocking a new blonde dreadlocked do that’s kind of reminiscent of Britney…..bitch. And his nose is blown up with coke (aka: Christina Aguilera).

David Versis – Kill The Lights [Audio]

Toronto, ON – Toronto rapper-producer David Versis just released a new single on us titled “Kill The Lights.”

This release comes to us following some very exciting news for Versis: he did production work on Wiz Khalifa’s Blacc Hollywood album, which has just been nominated for a 2015 Grammy. Huge shout-out to Versis on that one, and for putting himself on the map. Dude’s been making waves on the scene for the last few years so it’s so dope to see him getting that shine. Other recent Versis credits include work on Yo Gotti and T.I.’s monstrous “King Sh*t” joint.

But let’s backtrack to this “Kill The Lights” release, here. Versis hits us with a suave R&B–tinged sexy sex song that was self-produced in conjunction with Mikhail. Despite the sexy undertones, this song is actually really sad because the whole “kill the lights” thing refers to a relationship fizzling out. David is pretty shook up.

K-Riz – Is It Real (Prod. JDats) [Video]

Edmonton, AB – Last week K-Riz released his latest video single for “Is It Real.” This track comes to us off K-Riz’s forthcoming mixtape titled The Low: Side B, which is due out in mid-January 2015.

This track clears up any and all misconceptions you might have about becoming a famous person. Think of this video as an educational tell-all for rappers on the come-up. K-Riz gives us a real commentary about what can happen when fame takes over and slams you in the solar plexus.

What starts off as dream to get girls, money, cars, and love gets a little convoluted along the way. The track was produced by JDats, and the video was directed, filmed and produced by Jeff Eckert for Cold Island Productions. Check it out after the jump.

Kryple – So Confused [Audio]

Edmonton, AB – In support of his upcoming solo-album Anger Management, Doom Squad’s Kryple recently dropped his second single “So Confused.” With an assist from Edmonton’s mix-master Nato Down, Kryple elicits his talent in his self-produced beat. Not only capable of creating beats that knock (you need to check his Facebook page, for real), Kryple’s lyric-game is clean.

I lost the love, will I feel it again / If I quit rappin’ would these people round me still be my friends / Its like a job tryin’ to separate the real from pretend / I got blood on my hands but no guilt on my conscience / Weight on my shoulders, I’m built for the nonsense.”
