Our Weekly segment The Weekly Eight returns the debut EP from GTA-based recording duo, Black Lion.
We were originally just going to share the group’s Janel Sherise-assisted single “Miles Away,” produced by Toronto’s own Tone Mason, but after checking out the rest of Free Association, it didn’t make sense not to highlight the whole project. Additional guest appearances include 7even 2wenty 8ight, Gary B, Dukez, Shawny, and Ray Robinson.
- Artist/Group: GTA-based recording duo, Black Lion, consisting of group members Rich Lindo and JR “Heny” Lindo.
- Submission: Tone Mason-produced single, “Miles Away,” featuring Janel Sherise. The song is featured on their debut EP, Free Association, released through Black Lion Productions.
- Streaming Links: You can find Miles Away, and the rest of the Free Association album, on streaming outlets like Spotify and Bandcamp.
- Social Media: You can follow @BlackLionProductions on Instagram, or follow @BlackLionEmpire on Twitter.
Check out “Miles Away” and the Free Association EP below.

THE WEEKLY EIGHT INFO
Submission Sundays was a segment we introduced in 2018 to show love to the hundreds of artists and groups that submit new material to us weekly. The segment also gave us a chance to show love to people who weren’t already receiving regular coverage on HipHopCanada, and gave them a chance to connect with our viewers.
Towards the end of the year, we relaunched Submission Sundays as The Weekly Eight, with the same objective to help artists grow.
Each week, we’ll select 8 new submissions and feature them on our homepage for at least a 24 hour period.
To be considered for The Weekly Eight segment, please submit your content using our Submission Form. International submissions are welcome.
Please note, due to the volume of submissions we receive, we are unable to respond to each submission directly. Submissions with missing information will be deleted.
