Halifax’s Quake Matthews drops visuals for his “Mockingbird” remix
Our weekly segment The Weekly Eight returns with the recently released heartfelt “Mockingbird (Remix)” from award-winning Halifax rapper Quake Matthews.
HipHopCanada’s own Uncle Buck caught up with Quake not that long ago to discuss the power of his single “Confessions,” the comeup, the Halifax scene, battling, upcoming releases and more.
“I’m not working on any specific project right now, but I am increasing the volume of music I make more then ever right now. My strategy is to flood it with free music/content this year, and then maybe drop a new project when the momentum is right. ‘Grandma’s Cooking’ is definitely my favourite song off the new project. It was a blessing to have my grandmothers voice on the actual record, something I’ll be able to cherish forever. As far as maintaining substance and integrity, records like that come super easy because they are from a real place. It’s not even something I think about. As cliché as it sounds, the best thing to do is to block out everything else and just be yourself. Easier said then done.”

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.
