HipHopCanada joined Spotify earlier this year and we’ve been releasing a new playlist with two hours of music every single week.
Each Friday we’ll hit you with a Canadian urban music playlist curated by our Associate Editor, Sarah Jay. Every week Sarah will be putting together a 38-track weekly selection of new releases, classic favourites, throwbacks, and songs she’s playing heavy on rotation.
This week’s playlist is our special Canadian rap-UK grime crossover edition. In addition to all the dope new Canadian releases on rotation here, Sarah has also included a handful of collaboration tracks between Canadian rap artists and UK grime artists: Toronto artist Smoke Dawg’s “Overseas” collaboration with Skepta, Wiley’s “U Were Always, Pt. 2” with Skepta and Belly, and Saskilla’s “Grime In Japan” with Canadian grime artist Tre Mission, Manga and Wiley. We also featured a solo cut titled “Moxie” from Vancouver grime artist Maka.
Volume 10 also features several new records that just dropped that we’re super excited about including Jazz Cartier’s “PREE,” Immerze’s “Ying Ying,” TOBi’s “LiBRA,” Sammy Keys’ “Let’s Talk,” CJ Flemings’ “Highlight,” and Moka Only’s “Somethin’ For Warmth” off the just-released Martian XMAS 2016 project.
Check out the playlist and track list for Sarah Jay’s Weekly Picks Vol. 10 below, and make sure you go follow us on Spotify.
We also want to take a minute to send a shout-out to Spotify Canada for using Sarah Jay’s Weekly Picks as reference for their new Northern Bars playlist.
