ComeUpBurd

Shouts to Chedo and Burd from BurdxKeyz for chopping it up kinda beautiful about music, life, loss and everything in between. I think about that time in my life often man. Just lucky I guess to still be here to reminisce on it. I can only imagine what it was like for my dude Burd when Keyz passed away but he speaks about it openly and with vulnerability here. Thank you for sharing. RIP Durty Keyz.

Our guest this week is Toronto producer Burd, who is half the duo of Burd and Keyz. Burd has been in the game for a while and he’s produced for many big names like A$AP Ferg, Pusha T, French Montana, Wiz Kid, to name a few. His partner in crime Anthony “Durty Keyz” James was Burd’s childhood friend that passed away at the age of 23 due to a rare bacterial infection. We talked about Keyz passing, the production scene right now, and so much more.

ARTICLE: A Hip-Hop Oral History of The Concert Hall (Now Magazine)

Ty Harper | Community,Editorial,Interviews,Music | Monday, June 12th, 2017

Now Ron Nelson

Lots of great stuff in this piece, but I think it’s important to think about how we respond to media coverage like this. I know the immediate feeling we have when we see one-off articles like this is ecstatic elation. But that’s only because we’ve been STARVING for our history. A history Toronto and Canadian media continue to erase through their privilege, their ignorance and arrogance.

Think about it: if someone had the power to deprive you of water, food and the necessities of life you rightfully deserve, what would be the appropriate way to respond to them when they randomly decide to feed you some scraps?

“Toronto’s Apollo,” “a mini-Caribana,” “the matriarch” of Toronto’s hip-hop scene.

Storied live music venue the Concert Hall is most often associated with 60s rock acts like Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones. In the 70s, 80s and 90s it was the place to see punk, new wave, funk, dancehall, reggae and grunge.

Much less talked about in mainstream media is the pivotal role the 100-year-old venue at 888 Yonge played in laying the foundation for Toronto’s currently thriving hip-hop scene.

In the 80s and early 90s, hip-hop parties were dispersed around suburban neighbourhoods in community halls, schools, basements and rental places. The crowds and musicians were young, primarily Black first- and second-generation Canadians. But as the scene grew, the venue housed in the centrally located Masonic Temple at Yonge and Davenport became hip-hop’s mecca.

INTERVIEW: Kavale w/ The Come Up Show

rez | Interviews | Friday, December 2nd, 2016

kavalecomeup

Shouts to this dude man. He’s been on the grind for a couple years now and is steadily building up his buzz one release at a time. Shouts to Chedo too of course:).

This week we had up-and-coming Toronto rapper Kavale join us on the show. His EP release last year, Genius, saw much success on the charts. His most recent EP Carpe Diem, released earlier this month, has been the talk of Toronto’s music scene. His new debut combines a mix of melodic ballads and trap-like beats to create a nuanced sound that’s unique to Kavale.

I talked to Kavale to discuss his new EP, what inspires him to make music, and how faith keeps him going. Here’s an excerpt from the interview, play the podcast to hear more.

Each and every Wednesday we’ll be uploading a brand new interview with a guest we feel that you should know about. If you love podcasts subscribe at the options below.
