Miami, FL – DJ E-Feezy, best known for his 2015 mixtape The Wolf of Wall Street, has teamed up with Tory Lanez for a new single called “Baby.” The song was produced by Smash David, Nick Fouryn and E-Feezy himself. So far the track has had a mixed reaction from fans – some thinking it’s the perfect start to summer and other’s thinking it fell short of being a hit. As HNHH’s Danny Schwartz remarks, “‘Baby’ appears ready to explode into a full-fledged club banger at any moment, but it never does, rather content to simmer at the balmy temperature of a The-Dream song c. 2008.” Check it out below.
Toronto, ON – While taking in the looks of Louis Vuitton’s new Men’s Spring-Summer collection, Drake released a new 40-produced record called “Signs.” The song comes three months after the release of his Billboard 200-dominating project More Life, and has already climbed to the top of Billboard’s Trending 140 chart. OVO has yet to release the official audio for “Signs” but you can hear it now around the 3:40 mark of this Louis Vuitton fashion show video:
Toronto, ON – Following the monstrous release of his Rich Nobody EP in 2016, Troy Joe has stayed pretty quiet for most of 2017. But the Toronto based artist marks his return today with the premiere for his new “Growing Up” video (directed by KC Productions).
“Growing Up” was written after Troy moved back home to Toronto from Brooklyn in 2016. At that point, Troy was entering a full-time career in basketball. But he lost his passion for it, and instead fell in love with the music. So he moved home and chose to pursue his music. And even though he’d grown up, and everyone he knew had grown up, it seemed like – in many ways – some things were still exactly like high school.
Troy has been M.I.A. from the rap game for about six months now. But he spent most of those six months focused on another aspect of his craft – the business. After the release of Rich Nobody, Troy assumed that his music would automatically do numbers because of the music itself. But now he’s actually starting to strategize his approach. Watch the video for “Growing Up” below, and check out our in-depth interview with Troy after the jump.
Toronto, ON – Along with his new “No Letting Go” single covered by Sarah Jay yesterday, Def Jam recording artist Jahkoy also recently released visuals in support of his Foreign Water project. The two videos (covering four songs in total) include “F N Sexy / Don’t Stop The Vibe” and “Don’t Beg / 1000 Times.” So far 5 of the 7 songs featured on Foreign Water have received visual support, including the ScHoolboy Q-assisted “California Heaven” which came out in March. You can watch the new clips after the jump link below.

Jamaica – Blue Feathers Records artist Pressa is back with new visuals in support of his Press Machine mixtape. The video features Pressa living it up Jamaican-resort style with his “Baby Girl” who pledges her allegiance by rocking the young Toronto rapper’s chain.
“Baby Girl” premiered on Noisey earlier today with Pressa commenting on the meaning:
“Growing up in Toronto, girls are fascinated by jewelry and they would always ask to wear my chain. By them wearing my chain, it symbolizes that they were my baby girl. Like Jay-Z says, ‘I got the hottest chick in the game wearing my chain.’”
Check out the Jesse Dart-directed “Baby Girl” below.
Edmonton, AB – On June 7, Future made his return to Rogers Place in support of his headlining Nobody Safe Tour featuring A$AP Ferg, Tory Lanez and
Migos. Future’s name in hip-hop has only risen since his last performance in Edmonton (Drake’s Summer Sixteen tour) – with two back-to-back #1 albums (HNDRXX and Future) under his belt earlier this year.
Harlem’s own A$AP Ferg set it off with a lively performance which included some of his newer joints from his latest album Always Strive and Prosper and of course he killed fan favourites “Work REMIX” and “Shabba.” Fans were still filing inside Rogers Place during Ferg’s set, so many (including myself) missed the first half. He deserved more, Ferg is guaranteed to be turnt every time
Edmonton, AB – With Canada’s 150th Birthday around the corner, the good folks at The Ranch Roadhouse and HOT 107 Edmonton have put together the ultimate celebration. On Sunday July 2, Kid Ink will headline The Canada 150 Parking Lot Day Party, at The Ranch Roadhouse.
If you’ve attended The Ranch’s parking lot parties in the past, then you already know what time it is! Check the details after the jump.
Toronto, ON – Earlier this week Def Jam signee Jahkoy released a brand new track titled “No Letting Go” and it’s one of the best summer 2017 songs I’ve heard this month.
“No Letting Go” is much more on the pop side of the spectrum, but it’s catchy, wavy, and all good vibes. Even though Jahkoy came up in Toronto, his time in LA has really rubbed off on him. He’s been steady delivering Cali-dipped, West Coast anthems for a while now. And “No Letting Go” is no exception.
Jahkoy is currently on a run supporting Kehlani on tour, but he has a few days off right now; which is probably why he decided to take some time to drop a new track. Jahkoy dropped a monstrous debut EP titled Foreign Water back in October 2016, but he’s stayed consistent by randomly dropping loosies on his SoundCloud to tide us over until his next project release.
