London, ON – London’s own JR Fillion teamed up with Bizzy and Casper The Ghost to bring us this fresh new video for “Wrong Things” off of JR’s forthcoming Northern Lights album.
“Wrong Things” is about that crippling fear we all have that we’ll make one mistake – do one wrong thing – and f**k it all up. It also points out that “Wrong Things” is totally an arbitrary thing. There’s no formula for being a good or bad person; we’re all faced with moments and decisions in life.
There are no set “right” or “wrong” decisions to make. But this track sheds light on keeping kin and family as top priority when making those very decisions. The track was produced by LMomrelle, and the video was directed by Sonic Sinema. Peep the video premiere after the jump.
Toronto, ON – Ain’t No Love recently teamed up with Torontonian master-producer, Avenue, to hit us with this fresh new joint titled “Cry In The Rain,” off the forthcoming Plummet EP (which is set for release via Warner Music in March 2015).
Ain’t No Love (aka: the ever-sassy soulful Saidah Conrad, along with MCs Beanz and 1990) are a serious genre-blend experience. This songs veers into serious electro-synth territory, but maintains a raw hip-hop edge, along with a heavy dose of funk. How do you even classify that? The group refers to their sound as “renegade pop.” I feel that 100%.
Vancouver, BC – Made in Vancouver. ‘80s baby, ‘90s kid. A poet sharing his story through the art of rap and the love of hip-hop. Birth name, Julian Clyde Asuncion, and nicknamed JuLS since the age of 2. His latest track is titled “Pipebomb” and was produced by EveKey. Check it out below.
Both videos have a serious underlying social message. While “What’s The Hype” forces you to think about what – actually – is hype, “Choose Your Role” asks you to find your place in the world. It’s a serious wake-up call to the fact that being alive is about so much more than going through the motions; you have a purpose and a role. The video was directed by J-True. Check it after the jump.
Detroit, MI – For his new single, Big Sean enlists Drake to give a first look at his new album, Dark Sky Paradise. The project is set to drop Feb. 24, 2015 but pre-ordering will be available at some point today. “Blessings” was produced by Vinylz. Check it out below.
Now, you’ll notice the post also has a version with Big Sean’s G.O.O.D. Music boss, Kanye West. It remains to be seen if this is an official remix or just an extension of the same song that was origianlly uploaded to YouTube. Either way, if you like your music Yeezy free, check out the version below. You can find Kanye’s verse on the version after the jump, towards the end of the record.
Toronto, ON – “Sleep With The Guns” is a classic track Gangis Khan fans will be familiar with, but it just recently received some visual treatment featuring behind the scenes footage of Camo and the DeepWaters team. Check that out below.
We also just posted the latest video from the Scarborough artist for a really dope tune called “No Days Off.” Check that out right here.
Toronto, ON – More new music coming out of Scarborough. This is Set2 featuring Rich Kidd on the Daniel Worthy-produced “Tings Bless (Legacy).” “Tings Bless” is HipHopCanada’s Song Of The Day. Check it out below.
“What’s The Hype?” was actually made back at the beginning of 2014. Our dudes claim they took a collection of anonymous fan-submitted clips and pieced them together to make this video. Basically, you’ll see a lot of lurky black-and-white shots of people stickering Population Control stickers all over the place. So what’s the hype? That’s the hype. The video was directed by Jake Tee. Check it out after the jump.
