Ricky Storm gears up for his debut project with the self-produced release of “Watch It Go”

Toronto, ON – Rex World recording artist Ricky Storm just released his latest self-produced track titled “Watch It Go” and announced the upcoming release of his debut project for later this year.

“Watch It Go” is a celebratory track about enjoying everything life throws at you. The track shows the duality of being a focused, work-driven artist, who also still likes to turn up and get lit. Ultimately, it all boils down to the necessity that is work-life balance. No matter how hard you stay grinding, it’s essential to take that time to enjoy life, as well.

Here’s what Ricky had to say about “Watch It Go”: “This song – to me – just feels like a celebration of life, where I’m at in life and how much more work I gotta put in. This is a song about working hard non-stop, but also still taking the time to turn up and be inspired by life.”

Free Problems: You need to listen to Free n Losh’s new collaboration with Terrell Morris

Toronto, ON – Toronto production duo Free n Losh recently teamed up with Terrell Morris for this brand new collaboration titled “Free Problems.”

The three have previously collaborated on “The Right Song” as well as the more recently released “Me 4 Prez.” At this point Free n Losh are basically unfuckwitable. But whenever I see they’ve linked up with Terrell, I get that much more excited.

“Free Problems” is a downtempo summer vibe-out track. Terrell puts the focus on his rapping and bars, while Free n Losh slide in with a minimalistic instrumental backdrop. Check it out below.

ICYMI: Sean Leon dropped a new track called “Charge It To The WAV” & you need to hear it

Toronto, ON – Earlier this week, Toronto artist Sean Leon dropped a brand new single on us titled “Charge It To The WAV” (yes – “WAV” like the audio file format).

Sean’s been riding out the post-album release wave by easing his following into his more cinematic side. He dropped his short film Life When You’re The Movie right before his album release (I Think You’ve Gone Mad (Or The Sins Of The Father)). And then he followed up to his album drop by releasing a short psychological thriller for the track “81”.

Now he’s back at it again with even more music. Which means if you haven’t had the chance to take in the 20-track listing on I Think You’ve Gone Mad (Or The Sins Of The Father), you’d better get caught up on that ASAP.

“Charge It To The WAV” was produced by Eestbound (of course) and it’s one of the hardest hitting bangers Sean has ever dropped. The hook sticks like glue: “I told my baby mama they gon’ feel this WAV!/ So much bullshit on my mind, it hurts my brain!/ So much bullshit on my mind that it’s insane!/ Charge it to the WAV!/ YA! YA! YA! YA!”

HipHopCanada on Spotify: Check out Sarah Jay’s Weekly Picks Vol. 25

Calgary, AB – HipHopCanada joined Spotify in 2016 and we’ve been releasing a new playlist with two hours of music every single week.

Each Friday we’ll hit you with a Canadian urban music playlist curated by our Associate Editor In Chief, Sarah Jay. Every week Sarah will be putting together a 38-track weekly selection of new releases, classic favourites, throwbacks, and songs she’s playing heavy on rotation.

This week’s playlist includes a bunch brand of new music including 12AM’s “No Good 4 U” (off the just released new Afterparty EP, which is one of the best projects I heard this month), Sean Leon’s “Charge It To The Wav”, Dr Maleek’s Tory Lanez and The Game assisted “Don’t Say Nothin”, Dead Obies’ Naadei featured “Game Over”, HMLT’s “LOE”, Emay’s “Ibn “son””, Mickey Blue’s “Attached”, Jordan Rivers’ “Feel Me Not”, Sayzee’s “Fire”, Luu Breeze’s “La Senza”, and Seth Dyer’s “Lock.”

This week’s playlist also features a ton of music coming out of Montreal. Mostly because I was bumping the Dead Obies’ new EP titled Air Max and it was too good. And then Wasiu put me on to this amazing vocalist named Charlotte Cardin. And then I saw the “Street Gospel” video by February Cxld and felt some type of way. And then Black Atlass (formerly of Montreal) popped up on a collaboration with Moonlight Matters. Then I discovered that Lunice made a track with Angel Haze this one time and I got really excited… And so on, and so on.

Check out the playlist and tracklist for Sarah Jay’s Weekly Picks Vol. 25 below, and make sure you go follow us on Spotify.
