Brampton, ON – Brampton up-and-comer Anderson just teamed up with Pharaoh to drop this dope new track on us titled “Want You” (produced by Cheta).
Over the last few months, Anderson has proven himself to be one seriously diverse artist with a range of technical and lyrical abilities, and some sick collaborations (Hi, Pryde!).
This song switches up the pace AGAIN for Anderson by going into much more intimate territory. This is a song about animalistic sexual desires. I mean…the song is called “Want You.” That pretty much sums it all up.

Vancouver, BC – Bell’s mental health initiative “Let’s Talk” day recently passed for another year, and drew substantial awareness and funds to the topic of mental health initiatives across Canada. But, we still find it fairly rare to watch rappers get vocal about a subject that is unfortunately still considered to be a socially touchy one.
Vancity rapper, Trevor Mills, sat down with us to talk about how the loss of his own brother to suicide has been the inspiration for his latest EP, as well as motivation for the campaign that he’s lead this past year to raise awareness for mental health initiatives in British Columbia. We love that music has the power to connect people and influence dialogue. We especially love that this emcee has given us a project that’s been fully dedicated to evoking positive change. Check out my conversation with Trevor Mills below on his new EP Evidence of a Struggle, the stigma of mental illness, and how he’s influencing constructive conversation in his community.
“I just couldn’t write about another topic once I started writing. I had to write about my brother. He was just such an inspiring guy, and he really helped me become who I am. ” – Trevor Mills
