T.Y. – Hate ft. Bo$ Clique [Video]

Hamilton, ON – Remember back in September when T.Y. teamed up with the Bo$ Clique fam to drop that dope track titled “Hate”? Well our dudes just hit us with a fresh released video to accompany the track.

T.Y. is gearing up to launch a new album next year, so he did a weekly T.Y. Tuesday series earlier on this year to get us listening to his new tunes. At first the series was just a bunch of T.Y. remixes. But then he pulled a whammy on us by teaming up with the Bo$ boys (88Flow, B3auu and EJ Grant) for this hot original track. The song features old school-influenced production, courtesy of Joel Johnston. It’ll take you back into the ’90s and have you vibing out in no time.

Toronto, ON – Toronto has a lot of hometown heroes in the vast world of urban music. Most notably is of course Drake but also Kardinal Offishal, Maestro, July Black and k-os, among other great artists. These talents have been around for multiple years ensuring that Toronto’s urban music thrives and gets the credit its due. Their projects reflect the city, their sound is notably Canadian and they proudly rep even the smallest neighbourhoods from Rexdale to Scarborough wherever they go. Even when they are out in South Africa or Europe, they don’t forget that small downtown venue where their journey began. With that said, this past Sunday (September 21st), Toronto witnessed the confirmation of their newest hometown hero; The Weeknd.

The Adding Machine – Straight Out The Swamp [Video] #SOTD

Ottawa, ON – Ottawa’s The Adding Machine dropped off brand new Taylor Fleming-directed visuals for their song “Straight Out The Swamp.”

True to its title, “Straight Out The Swamp” features E.on and Defckon lugging R.A. The ADDwolf in the trunk of the car with plans to bury him in the woods. Aggressive lyrics from both of the depicted killers to perfectly compliment the gruesome slaughter of their presumably innocent group member. But, when R.A’s corpse is uncovered, he comes back to life and exacts revenge by bodying the third verse and capping off the record. If you’re feeling the tune, make sure you support the group with a purchase on iTunes and Spotify.

The group is actively booking shows so there’s likely lots of opportunity to catch one of their high energy performances sometime in the near future. Just recently they tore it down at Ottawa’s Ritual Nightclub (November 15) as part of Alex Silas & The Subterraneans’ ROOTS Album Launch Party (A Special Edition of Bars & Breakbeats & Colour & Sound). Look for a few photos from that event after the jump. Next up, they’ll be live inside Ottawa’s Zaphod Beeblebrox as part of the Breakdown Wednesday Christmas Spectacular on Wednesday, December 17.

“Straight Out Thr Swamp” is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day. Click the jump to watch the video.
