VNCHY – Broke Dreams (Prod. Prezident Jeff) [Audio]


Ottawa, ON – Ottawa rapper VNCHY just released his latest single titled “Broke Dreams” off his forthcoming Neverland EP.

VNCHY comes in over top of a Prezident Jeff beat, and hits us with that signature raspy delivery that I’m still losing my ish over. He delivers a deeply introspective track about being the biproduct of middle child syndrome. The situations that seemingly held VNCHY back in his youth are the same situations that made him the ruthless hungry rapper that he is today.

John River – Get Down [Video]


Mississauga, ONJohn River just released new visuals for “Get Down” off his forthcoming mixtape entitled The Storm. “Get Down” is a summer party anthem of supreme status. John uses the track to celebrate the success 2015 has brought him, while giving a nod to his city (shout-out to Mississauga), and his kin. The video was directed by Abstrakte and produced by MadRuk Ent.

So in case y’all been sleeping, John received an MMVA nomination for “Hope City II,” competing against the likes of Naturally Born Strangers, SonReal, P. Reign and Tory Lanez. John also blessed us with a TEDx talk back in April. Big things are finally happening for the kid. It’s about damn time, no?

Bane – Influences (Prod. D.R.O.) [Audio]


Brampton, ON – After releasing a monstrous video for “Cocaine Art Gallery,” Bane delivers fresh audio for his latest single titled “Influences.”

Bane comes in over top of a dark esoteric future beat, courtesy of D.R.O. D.R.O. bangs out this haunting minor key melody. And then he throws in some 808s. So it’s got this eerie mix of feelings. It’s turnt. It’s faded. And it’s lonely AF. Bane takes us through a very dark commentary on the two major influences that keep his world running. Check it out below.

K-Riz – Cool Chick (Prod. JDats, LordQuest & Cameron Browne) [Audio]


Edmonton, AB – Young Edmonton rap lord K-Riz is gearing up for the release of his debut Fresh Air LP. So to get us all itching on the drop, he released a fresh new jam titled “Cool Chick.”

This song is an ode to all of the cool chicks who keep things real and do their own thing: “Her grind is untouchable/ Her mind is on another level/ Can’t reach/ No time for the comfortable/ Always looking forward.” This is not just another female appreciation song. This song celebrates a very particular type of female; the type of girl that every guy wants to wifey, and every girl aspires to be. Check it out below.

Gabriel Lis – Kong [Audio]


Toronto, ON – Toronto producer Gabriel Lis just hit us with another drop titled “Kong” off the recently-released Toronosaurus Rex instrumental album. This beat was actually the first instrumental Gabriel cooked up for the album, and you’ll see it listed as the second track on the project.

In keeping with the primal prehistoric vibe of the project, “Kong” is one seriously filthy animalistic beat. Gabriel delivers a hard-hitting boom-bap drumline layered with a catchy guitar melody. I feel King Kong rampaging to this beat. It’s a prime set-up. Gabriel even subtly throws in those police siren samples throughout the track. Check it out below.
