DillanPonders – You’re Welcome [Review]


Toronto, ON – On Apr. 1, Toronto’s drug lord extraordinaire DillanPonders released his highly-anticipated You’re Welcome remix project. The project dropped as a thank you for all of DP’s fans for the support and love that they’ve shown him over the years.

To be honest, when I heard that DP was going to drop a remix project I was slightly bummed out at the idea of a DP project comprised entirely of remixes. DP is a lyrical genius. On the surface level, he makes some of the hardest dope boy rap in Canada. But if you listen to his lyrics, Dillan is also one of the most conscious cats in the game right now. His music always has this underlying commentary about the double-edged sword that has become his lifestyle.

Yeah, homie blows coke. But it’s not all sunshines and unicorns sh*tting rainbows. DP has a void in his life that he’s still trying to fill with all the drugs. You’ve got to listen for that ish, though. Some of Dillan’s most turnt party anthems are also some of the darkest and loneliest self-reflections I’ve ever heard.

Goapele gives Vancouver the night of their lives [Review]


Vancouver, BC – American R&B singer Goapele released her fifth album, Strong As Glass last year and has been on tour ever since. Her presence in the public eye is very much like her, strong but subtle. She has been producing quality soul music with contemporary stylings for over a decade now and manages to get better with each successive album and magically remains relevant.

Wasiu – Many Dreams [Audio]


Montreal, QCWasiu (aka: one of my favourite dudes in the game right now) just dropped his latest single release titled “Many Dreams.” This track gives a nod to the late greats, Tupac and Biggie, with a hook that samples “Runnin’ (Dying To Live)” and a commentary about making it to that next level in the rap game.

Also, the joint was produced by Da-P dabeatX (of Soulection). Which explains why the beat is such a head shaker. Holy damn. You could vibe out to this on repeat ten times like I just did.
