NEW VIDEO: Ian Kamau + Catherine “Legs” Hernandez – Stay

rez | Video | Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Don’t know the genesis of this video (whether Kamau commissioned it or Catherine was just inspired) but it’s a beautiful outcome and another reminder for you to go back and check out the One Day Soon album. Truth.

This video was shot on location at the Rouge Hills Conservation area waterfront in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. We gratefully acknowledge that this is originally Seneca/Mississauga First Nations territory.

The Filipino Singkil fan dancing performed in this video is completely improvised. It was shot in one continuous take at 7:45am EST on Oct 27th 2013 immediately at dawn.

FIDIYOOTDEM-Cover_zps92b560cd

Tasha The Amazon releases FiDiYootDem after a nice likkle viral push. Whole thing is produced by Bass & Bakery, the production duo comprised of herself and partner Danthrax. “Scallywags” still my ish. Gonna take it in.

And check out Tasha live this Friday night at Noisey’s The Rap Party.

One of the most anticipated artists to drop out of Toronto this year is here; Tasha The Amazon delivers banger after banger on her first full-length project FiDiYootDem. Entirely produced by herself and Danthrax, better known together as Bass & Bakery, the project displays tribal, island, and trap rhythms mixed with pop and electro melodies featured on singles like “Thru The Fire”, “Tru Life”, and “Scallywags”. Add to that Tasha’s presence and wit on the mic, and it makes for an awesome listen from start to finish.

It is now available for free stream and download via Audiomack, and fans and press in Toronto can catch her live for
The Rap Party release show at Parts & Labour, presented by Noisey.

A bomb in a china shop.

Toronto’s Tasha the Amazon is an artist, producer, and bad gyal. Notorious for rude stage antics and warehouse parties shut down by police raids, her unconventional lyrics deal as much with partying, drugs, and hood mischief as they do with anarchy and civil disobedience.

She’s shared the bill with genre-defining acts like the Wu-Tang’s Ghostface Killah and Raekwon, The Roots, Killer Mike and fellow new-school icons like Action Bronson. Behind the boards, her bold production style has already earned her collaborations with the likes of DJ Green Lantern, Grammy-winner Che Vicious (G.O.O.D. Music) and more. 


After cutting her teeth in collabs and collectives, the German-Jamaican powerhouse is dropping her first solo project, FiDiYootDem, in Fall 2013.

Produced by herself and partner Danthrax (together, they form the production duo Bass & Bakery), the project experiments unapologetically with the future of hip hop. Meet the new school.
