Vancouver, BC – The hottest female in hip-hop right now, Australia’s own Iggy Azalea hit the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver on The New Classic Tour this past week. Not only is she a super-babe with amazing energy and stage presence, there’s a reason she made XXL’s Freshman list in 2012. The girl can really spit, and the proof? A sold-out crowd of super stoked Azaleans.
Toronto, ON – Ottawa might not be the party capital of the world 364 days of the year, but on Canada Day there’s no better Canadian city to be in!
On July 1, Toronto based rapper Dynamic (aka Ya Favourite Lightskin) returns to his hometown of Ottawa for a release party inside Rainbow Bistro (76 Murray St.). The party will be celebrating the release of Dy’s new project, A Collection Of Thoughts, which will be available early hours on Canada Day. Along with Dynamic, other acts will be on hand to celebrate the EP’s release including Ras Lee & The Vibes Band, The Key Components (Aspects & Moun Fou) and Hyf The Gypsy Sun.
To coincide with the release party announcement, Dynamic has released a new acapella performance for a verse that appeared on his Free Promo mixtape (hosted by DJ Ducats) back in ’08. Click here to check out Free Promo now. Watch the video, directed by Robert Mentov, after the jump (along with the Canada Day flyer).
This is a HipHopCanada-sponsored event and we will be in the building! See you there!
Prince Albert, SK – Only days away from the drop-date of their Wolfpack EP release, Wolfpack recently released their latest single, “Bass Club.” MCs Chuck Woods and Mer spit their verses over an easy-going throwback beat produced by Rayne Drop.
This “Bass Club” sounds like a pretty legit place to kick it. It’s kind of like Vegas: “What happens at the Bass Club/ Stays at the Bass Club.” So here’s what goes down at said Bass Club: Wolfpack performs for free, because it isn’t “about the wage.” And the skinny MC boy gets six groupies. Six groupies. Ya heard? And I see what y’all did there with that “Grab a beer/Or a whiskey…” line. Because Chuck is Irish, and drinks whiskey, and stuff (more on this on Wolfpack’s previous release “Come With Me Now,” in which a bottle of Jameson serves a muse, of sorts). Check out the audio for “Bass Club” below and get ready for the Wolfpack EP release on May 26.
Toronto, ON Well this is dope. SeT, one of my favourite up-and-comers from Toronto, has released new visuals for the WMEgal-produced record “AuRA.” The Curtiss Randolph-directed video comes in support of SeT’s forthcoming debut album by the same name scheduled for a June release. Click the jump to check out the video now.
“AuRA is the energy and shine I’m sending out to the world. It is the light that was created by darkness or the energy, which came from nothing. It is a fearless scream to the world telling them to notice us (the people).” – SeT

Toronto, ON – J Coop just launched new visuals for his track “Sundays Best” off Self Reflection: Do I Stand Out?. The track features some bumping production – courtesy of Matt Law – that’ll take you back to those chill-out house parties filled with plastic red beer cups and good-feel vibes.

Calgary, AB – Originally published May 20, 2014 – On Aug. 15, our fam over at True Rhythm bring Onyx‘s Wakedafucup Album Release Tour to Dickens Pub in Calgary. The East Coast rap crew (Sticky Fingaz and Fredro Starr, sans Sonny Seeza) are fresh off the release of their latest studio album, Wakedafucup.
Fingaz and Starr linked up with the producing Snowgoons crew for the project and dropped it back in March. While hip-hop is starting to embrace softer rap elements (shout-out to soft rap, by the way – it’s great), Onyx takes it all back to the grimier elements of the rap game with some solid horrorcore, anecdotal narratives, and – of course – those gnarly Snowgoons beats. Check out the official event flyer and peep event details after the jump.
