Adam Jenkins sees “69 Bitches” on the T.V. but all he’s thinking about is how to get to you


St. John’s, NL – East Coast up-and-comer Adam Jenkins recently released a new single titled “69 Bitches” (produced by 3.D).

“69 Bitches” is actually surprisingly a song all about unrequited love. Adam Jenkins is reminiscing about his girl and how to get her back: “69 bitches on my television/ And all I’m thinking ’bout it how to get to you/ I’m thinking ’bout the way we used to be together/ I’m thinking ’bout the things we can f**king do.”

Huge shout-out to homie Vater for – as always – being my plug to the East Coast scene. He’s the East Coast rap whisperer and he’s put me on to so many dope artists (Hi, Dope Piece!). Vater hit me up to share this song with me and I was feeling it. Check it out below.

Shan Vincent de Paul is dropping his album in the spring & he wants to “Thank God”


Toronto, ON – Toronto artist Shan Vincent de Paul (SVDP) just released “Thank God” (produced by La+ch) as the second release off his fortcoming debut Saviors album.

As the song’s title suggests, “Thank God” is a song Shan penned to give thanks to his higher power. But even if you’re not a religious person, this song is ultimately all about gratitude. It’s a recognition and a giving of thanks for Shan’s progression within life. It’s also a reminder that no one person can progress in life by himself or herself.

You need a guiding force to help you along the way; whether that’s a higher power or a squad of friends or a supportive family: “And we watch them grow into warriors with the same light that you/ Had to look after-me/ And I took that leap to the glorious and it’s all thanks to the faith that you had in me.”

Show Review: Here’s what happened when ONYX came to Calgary


Calgary, AB – On Jan. 29, our friends over at True Rhythm brought Fredro Starr and Sticky Fingaz of ONYX to Calgary for a show at Dickens Pub. Obviously it was a hardcore rap show and obviously it was lit AF.

ONYX is one of the pioneering hardcore groups in the game and they’ve also been crucial for the rise of a lot of underground Canadian rap music via 100 MAD. In case you’re not familiar, 100 MAD was founded by Sticky Fingaz and features a roster of many talented Canadian associates including Snak The Ripper, Merkules, Bishop Brigante, and more.

So while ONYX was making their comeback in 2014 with Wakedafucup, they were also low-key helping underground Canadian rap music get its due shine.

Song of the Day: Peter Jackson enlists Ace Hood & Jay Vado for new single “Mind Blown”


Toronto, ON – If anyone was a strong candidate for a JUNO nomination that didn’t get a nod, it was Peter Jackson. The 9-0 Nickel CEO and artist has continued to take leaps and bounds in elevating his game and shaping the landscape of the Canadian hip-hop scene. Aside from continuing to play a large role in a good chunk of the tours that we’re lucky to get in Canada, PJ has steadily built a catalogue of strong releases including his acclaimed Since I Was 16 album which dropped last year.

The Rap Recording of the Year category only has five spots to work with and the competition is fierce, especially in a year where Drake has dominated charts and set more world records in music. With songs like “Mind Blown” laying the foundation for his next album, PJ should be a strong contender for the category in next year’s running.

The new single, which is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day, features “Hustle Hard” rapper Ace Hood and Venezuelan-Canadian singer-songwriter, Jay Vado. It was produced by Metcalfe Productions and Dhanie. Check it out below.
