You don’t have to tell me, I can tell by the sweet smell of premium Alberta Vodka emanating from your general direction that your Wednesday is dragging. Well, good news! I have a non-alcoholic way (you’re like, “what, no booze? I though you said good news?!?!” haha, Oh you. Your insatiable thirst for liquor will [...]
What’s that, your new single is produced by DITC legend Buckwild and features mad scratched-in Chuck D vocal samples? Well that’s an auto-post around these parts, so have yourself a listen below to “Lower Level”, the first single from TO-based MC/Producer Muneshine’s long-awaited new album There Is Only Today. As I mentioned, it has a [...]
The Internet is sometimes amazing. A Toronto hip hop duo makes a song inspired by a reverred Brazilian artist. Said artist has no idea about the song. A Portuguese graphic artist is inspired to create a wonderful video for the song, and gets a friend in Brazil to inform artist about the song and tape [...]
Ugh, have I ever mentioned that spring in Halifax is mighty god damn depressing? Well if I know you IRL, as the kids say, then surely you know I have, cause I love to bitch about it. Well we’re on our 3rd straight day of a rain & cool temperatures combo, so I could use a pick-me-up song. Here’s a dandy from the legendary Skratch Bastid which features some of the south’s finest flowing over Let It Whip (Whoomp!) from the fantastic Dazz Band. Catch SB on his upcoming Skratch Of All Trades mini-tour, which looks like it’s going to be pretty awesome.

If I ain’t better than Sauks, I’m the closest one. -D-Sisive Which legendary T.O. rapper would have Derek Christoff aping Jay-Z in order to pay tribute to him? Why it’s Saukrates of course. If you’ve ever read anything about hip hop on the ol’ internet, there’s a good chance you’ve seen the phrase “your favourite [...]
If you told me to find one song that captures the zeitgeist in regards to how the hill feels about current hip hop, it would be impossible to do any better than “Just Not Cool Anymore” off of Toronto MC Modulok’s new album You Look So Tragic. Not that we’ve ever been as cool as [...]
Here’s your new favorite hip hop video, you’re welcome and that was easy. Well perhaps it’s not quite that easy, but take two of the funniest, lyrically nimble and most charismatic MC’s you could find, put them in a visually-pleasing, hijinks-filled video, and I’mma bring back the Parker Lewis reference for you, because you cannot [...]
Yesterday was the Ack’s birthday, and even though a busy vacation day means this is going up later than I’d planned, I still wanted to celebrate the occasion with a posting of one of his all-time favorite jams. He’s hardly alone in his love for the signature tune from Oakland’s Souls Of Mischief, I also [...]
I’m planning to post a review of Modulok’s You Look So Tragic next week, but it’s awesome, so you should go and listen to it right now. You can also get a taste of what longtime hill-fave Modulok has to offer this time out by watching the delightfully malevolent video for Just Not Cool Anymore, [...]
Fact: Tuesday nights are boring. So go ahead and spice yours up with the delightfully raunchy wobble of Toronto (via Halifax) MC/Producer Jufrais’ Beat That (which also features Heartz & Markings). If you like what you hear, grab Jusfrais’ album Lullabies & Other Bedtime Stories, which dropped earlier this year.
