What Are You On? Roy Woods teams up with Stwo for his latest release

Brampton, ON – Last night Brampton artist and OVO signee Roy Woods dropped off a brand new Stwo produced single titled “What Are You On?” This track comes to us only a couple of weeks after Roy released his “Say Less” freestyle in promo of his upcoming Say Less album.

“What Are You On” is the Roy Woods all-grown-up track that marks the end of an era, and the start of a new phase in his life: “They know this isn’t me but shit happens when you get older.” The track is backed by Stwo’s signature atmospheric, vibe-y engineering, and features a subtle dancehall inspired booty bounce drum line.

This is a track for late nights in the summer and getting lost in your thoughts. Roy’s gotten slightly jaded over the years, and he’s starting to reflect on his come up, the importance of respect, and why he does what he does on the daily: “I know what I’m meant for my n**ga/ I’m respected/ My life is for my people/ They been movin’ reckless.”

Listen to “Come Down” the seductive and distorted new track by a4

Vancouver, BC – His second release so far, Vancouver-based artists a4 recently dropped “Come Down.” The track talks about coming off of a high on drugs and love, as he sings, “Maybe that’s just the come down, maybe you just need to do a little more/ Maybe that’s just the come down, maybe you should come over right now.

With little known about the newly emerged rapper, listeners can refer to his previous release “Fuck 12.” Having only released two tracks so far, his distorted vocals and wavy style make him a new find that will be different than most of the sounds in your library (and a great addition). Stream the Zelli Risk-produced track, “Come Down” below.

Stay on your “Two Twos” & listen to K. Forest’s new single

Brampton, ON – Earlier this week Brampton artist K. Forest released a brand new dF produced single titled “Two Twos”.

This track comes to us as part of the roll out for K. Forest’s upcoming new Pray for A Beautiful Sky album. He’s spent most of this year on hiatus until a few months ago when he dropped “Low Low” and “On Deck”, and then followed that up with his summer 2017 anthem “Reverse” back in June.

Despite only a handful of releases this year, it seems K. Forest has settled into a close working relationship with dF, who’s produced all of the 2017 Forest fire we’ve heard. The two have an undeniable chemistry that often sees Forest lending a hand on his tracks’ co-production.

This particular track is rooted in an atmospheric instrumental anchored by a snapping drum line and Forest’s signature soulful vocals. There’s just enough bounce on this joint to keep you shaking your head, and just enough emotion on the delivery to get you all hot and bothered. Take a listen to “Two Twos” below.

Derek Wise buries the snakes and haters in this new video for “Jamal”

Toronto, ON – Earlier this week XO affiliate Derek Wise returned from his brief hiatus for the release of this new RJ Sanchez directed video for “Jamal”. “Jamal” was produced by Yungshrimp Tempura and Stretch and appears as the opening track on the January released Inglorious album.

One of the hardest songs off Inglorious, “Jamal” set the tone of the album from jump. Derek Wise is the voice of Canada’s dark, hidden underbelly. He’s a lyrical slumlord and reigning king of the trap. And within two lines of his album, he manages to establish that A) he’s probably had sexual relations with your girl and B) drugs!!!!: “I wash the drugs with the strainer/ I f**ked your bitch so don’t blame her/ No I don’t sell to no strangers/ Shoot up the club for my paper/ I got her off of the gram/ F**ked me then blessed all my mans/ Now she dose off of the xans.”

The “Jamal” visual is a cinematic journey about burying, and laying to rest the negativity, haters, and snakes in Derek’s life. The video starts in the thick of the forest as it switches between face-on shots of Derek rapping for the camera, and shots of Derek hacking away at the trees with a hatchet. Then we’re taken away from the forest and into a desert landscape for the burial.
