Calgary, AB – Today was a milestone day for Western Canadian hip-hop because today the One Love Music Festival was announced.
Our friends over at Two Towers Entertainment and Union Events have teamed up to bring us Western Canada’s largest hip-hop music festival. The line-up won’t be released until May 26 at 8 a.m., but you would be wise to start freaking the f**k out right about now. I’ve been told that the closest thing this festival can compare to is when Rock The Bells came to Calgary in 2009.
If y’all were there, y’all know that was history-changing for us. But apparently this is going to top that. Calgary is about to make its mark on the rap map. HipHopCanada is VERY pleased to announce that we will also be sponsoring this festival. We’ll be bringing you the latest news, updates and coverage on all things One Love.

Vancouver, BC – Billionaire B connects with Fetty Wap for “They Know,” from Billi’s upcoming album The Prestige 3.
The street anthem features a verse from Fetty Wap and production from Majestic Drama – catch the audio below.
Vancouver, BC – From his upcoming EP NorthSide Screw up-and-coming Vancouver producer VanCityBeats drops his take on the classic Three 6 Mafia track featuring UGK and Project Pat – “Sippin’ On Some Syrup”.
In his signature style, VCB slows down the vibe with space-like ambience and adds in some hard hitting drums while keeping the original verses intact. Peep the audio below.
Calgary, AB – Earlier on this month, two of my favourite Calgary up-and-comers – Fingaz and Pleuto – released a collaborative joint titled “Surprise.”
“Surprise” is one of the gnarliest street rap joints this city has seen in a minute. Fingaz and Pleuto go hard over top of one of Pleuto’s signature home-cooked faded trap beats. These two dudes are catching cats by surprise on the streets. But this song has layers to it. These two are also catching their fellow MCs by surprise.
Let me explain: at this point, I’m practically a walking human advertisement for Pleuto’s late 2013-released #skeletun project. And I always get so shocked when people tell me they never listened to it. A lot of cats slept on it. But Pleuto just dropped his Vandal project, and now everyone is all surprised and stuff. Because they realize that a standard is being set for a new YYC sound. And y’all know what that means, right? It means that Calgary MCs are going to have to step their game up. So…uh…SURPRISE MOTHERF**KERS!!!!
