Toronto, ON – Our friends at The Come Up Show have a big anniversary coming up! On Thursday, Nov. 30, make your way to Toronto’s Adelaide Hall (250 Adelaide St. W.) for The Come Up Show Celebrates its 10 Year Anniversary event.

Atlantic City, NJ – Xtra hit us up on Twitter with his new “Roll In Peace” freestyle featuring Triggah Flex. Both artists bring a unique style and sound to the beat which was originally produced by London on da Track and Cubeatz for Kodak Black. Definitely worth checking out.
Ottawa, ON – Toronto based Menace Muzik Group recently announced a New Year’s Eve pre-party in Ottawa featuring a headline performance by Casper TNG.
The event will feature special guests (perhaps K Money with his hot “Come Outside” single?) and music by Ottawa’s own Nu BRL Radio. It’s an all ages event taking place inside The 27 Club (27 York Street) with doors opening at 6 p.m. Security will be in full effect. Tickets are available online via Eventbrite.
Toronto, ON – We’re excited to bring you the premiere of the new Fortunato video for his Scopic-produced single, “What I Got To Say.” You might recognize Scopic as the producer behind Onyx’s Against All Authorities album.
The new video was directed by London, Ontario-based Koel Anderson of K Media and comes in support of Fortunato’s next project, Pain Proof. The album includes a feature from Madchild and is expected to be available this Christmas via URBNET.
Toronto, ON – One of the hottest duos in Canada right now is Derek Wise and his former Get Home Safe cohort 88 Camino (aka Drew Howard) as 88GLAM. Since the start of the month, they’ve released a ton of great material including a full-length album and two new videos.
“Bali,” featuring XO’s Nav,” was directed by Amir “Cash” Esmailian (who also produced the song), while “12” was directed by Toronto creative Dan LeMoyne. Peep them both below or check out Sarah Jay’s Weekly Picks for “Lavish.”
You can find all three tunes on the new 88GLAM self-titled album which is available on iTunes, Spotify and other outlets.
Toronto, ON – New music from XO artist/producer Nav and Lil Uzi Vert are full of romantic regrets on their catchy new single, “Wanted You.” Produced by DJ Khaled, Ben Billions and Cash, the pair sound great together but there’s no indication if a larger project between the two is in the works. They both appeared on The Weeknd’s Legend of the Fall tour so it’s quite possible more material is on the way. In the meantime, if you’re looking for more Nav, his new collaboration with 88GLAM (XO’s Derek Wise and 88 Camino) called “Bali,” is not to be missed.
Vancouver, BC – Attikus is back with another new single off his Vago-powered project, UPROARSandDOWNPOURS. Move Right Music presents “dontLETitBEwinter” featuring West Coast legend, Moka Only. Check it out below.
Toronto, ON – Our Song of the Day is the latest from Toronto rapper Casper TNG. “Can Go On Forever” was produced by frequent Casper-collaborator, Del Rosario Visuals. Peep it below and stay tuned for more for more new fire from The Neighbourhood Ghost.
Halifax, NS – On Nov. 5, Quake Matthews was presented with the SOCAN Songwriter of the Year Award for “Confessions” during the the 2017 Music Nova Scotia Awards. He also won the Hip-Hop Recording of the Year Award for his collaborative project with Kayo Guevarra as The Search. You can find the full press release from SOCAN after the jump, including Quake’s thoughts on winning the award.
Calgary, AB – HipHopCanada recently relaunched Sarah Jay’s Weekly Picks on Spotify. And this week we’re back with 10 new songs.
For those who aren’t familiar Sarah Jay’s Weekly Picks is a Spotify playlist featuring the best new Canadian urban music releases. It’s a platform to spotlight the artists coming up and to share my favourite new releases with you.
This week 88GLAM (Derek Wise and 88 Camino) finally dropped their debut self titled album and it’s insane. So they’re on the playlist cover right now. The two best cuts off the project are “Lavish” and “12” – and you’ll find them both on this playlist.
Cadence Weapon also just dropped a new track along with the announcement for his upcoming self titled album. Then I discovered an amazing R&B singer out of Toronto named Day Adams who made a song about his signature Ralph Lauren cologne. And for those who are getting excited about the new Roy Woods’ album, I added in his new collaboration with Guido Dos Santos and Rich The Kid to tide you over.
This week’s playlist also features new cuts from ShaqIsDope, Lais, Jordan Fall and Sean Leon, HMLT, Syph, Just John and Tony Kain. Check out the playlist and track list for Sarah Jay’s Weekly Picks below.
