D-Sisive – Ghetto Bastard

Well it seems I’ve arrived at Monday’s end without posting my tradition Old School Hip Hop jam (well, I’d traditionally been doing multi-song OSM posts for years, but for various reasons I’ve recently switched this to one old school jam per Monday. Here’s to new traditions!), but D-Sisive’s going to save my bacon this time around.

D recently got word of his 3rd Juno nomination, for Jonestown 2, along with Classified, Drake, Kardinal, and Swollen Members. Well as you might expect, this called for a celebration, and D celebrated in the studio creating a couple tracks with Muneshine behind the boards. One of those songs is a hijacking of Naughty By Nature’s Ghetto Bastard. Why, you ask? Simple: “Ghetto Bastard is one of my favourite songs of all time. Naughty By Nature is one of my favourite groups.” Works for me.

Live:: D-Sisive in Halifax

Good news: D-Sisive has finally made it. Well, this isn’t entirely true, as he makes perfectly clear on his latest record, the rather amazing Jonestown 2: Jimmy Go Bye Bye, he has yet to garner the kind of mainstream accolades he feels his body of work warrants (especially in the US of A), and he’s [...]

Reviews:: Muneshine & Vinyl Frontiers - Larger Than Life

Larger Then Life is a new 8 song EP from Toronto (via Saskatoon) MC Muneshine (aka Rob Bakker) that features production from Dutch producers Vinyl Frontiers. It’s also damn good and likely the best Canadian hip hop release so far this year.   I’ve definitely been a fan of Muneshine’s work over the last few [...]
