NEW VIDEO: SonReal – Can I Get A Witness (Directed by Peter Huang)

rez | Video | Thursday, May 26th, 2016

SonReal connects with Peter Huang again, this time for “Can I Get A Witness”. Check out my dude at Adelaide Hall on June 6th!

On June 6th, the Juno nominated and MMVA award-winning hip-hop artist, SonReal will be coming to Toronto to play Adelaide Hall…not to mention he’ll be back on June 19th for the MMVA’s (for which he is nominated and a presenter) – AND…he’ll be returning again with Jon Bellion on July 26th.

The Vancouver-based rapper, who is known for his successful collaborations with artists like Rich Kidd and Arthur McArthur, is gearing up for the release of his brand new record (still yet to be named) and recently dropped the video for his single “Can I Get A Witness.” He accompanied it with the “World’s Worst Contest” which sent folks on a trip to Manitowoc County…as well as a couples dinner to Taco Bell.

Gaining notoriety in 2014 for his eccentric sound and style, he’s hit hard with his recent EP “For The Town” and his much lauded mix-tape “One Long Day” – it was that which had The Huffington Post proclaiming “SonReal has his own flow, his own style, his own message. And he’s pretty damn good at it.” It was that same year when SonReal took home an award for MuchFACT Video of the Year for his viral smash “Everywhere We Go.”

Gawd damnit. Andreena’s BACK!!!! Gawd damnit. Andreena has a new project on the way!!!

p.s. Shouts to Drake and the whole sapper (singer/rapper) era but, generally speaking, when an actual singer sings the same songs it’s usually better, imho. Especially in a live situation.

NEW MUSIC: Haley Smalls – Controlla (Drake Cover)

rez | Music | Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

HaleyControlla

Haley Smalls covers “Controlla” by Drake. Nice.

Haley Smalls is a singer/songwriter engineer and in other words, a young force to be reckoned with. With music pumping through her veins and a foot in the music industry from a very young age, Smalls has paved her way to working with Grammy Award winning & nominated Producers such as; Megaman, Boi-1DA (Drake, Nicki Minaj), Chuck Harmony (Ne-Yo, Mary J. Blige), Harvey Mason, Jr. (Beyoncé, Brandy Aretha Franklin), The Monarch (Rita Ora, Cher Lloyd), Rock City (Rihanna, Usher), The Phatboiz (Yo Gotti), alongside her management team Ebony Sons (DTP).

Smalls’ classically trained voice, distinctive mainstream sound and noticeable R&B influence makes her one of the most intriguing up and coming young artists out of Toronto, Canada.

In January 2014, Grammy award winning and multi-platinum selling artist Beyoncé Knowles showed her approval of Smalls’ YouTube cover of ‘Pretty Hurts’ by sharing the video on her Facebook page stating she “loved it”. Since, Smalls’ cover went viral and has reached over one million views and still growing.

Without losing any momentum, Smalls became a part of the formation of a new production and writing team, The Startaz lead by one of Toronto’s most accomplished producers – Megaman (Lil Wayne, Birdman, Tyga, Drake, Kid Ink, Bow Wow, Yo Gotti). Honing in on her writing skills, writing and recording over 120 songs, Smalls managed to find and create her own sound which resulted in the release of her first project ‘This Is Me’, a 16-track Mixtape produced entirely by Megaman, written by The Startaz that was released in April, 2015.

Haley’s second project “Imagination” was released on December 16th, 2015, ending off the year with a bang with appearances by Boi-1da and P Reign, and once again produced by Megaman, written by The Startaz.

Wasting no time, Haley and her team released yet another project on Feb 5th, 2016, an 8-track mixtape called “The Cure” that fully embraces a new and very modern, Toronto sound. This is available on DatPiff, Soundcloud, and YouTube.

NEW MIXTAPE: k-os – Views From The Stix

rez | Mixtape | Monday, May 23rd, 2016

kosStix

Kheaven links up with the likes of Saukrates, Kardi, Shad, King Reign, KAYTRANADA, Chox and Boi-1da for a new tape called “Views From The Stix”. ‘Bout to take this one in. Here’s all the info:

Multi-platinum recording artist k-os releases his second mixtape, Views from the Stix.

Views from the Stix is a collection of songs created by k-os at his family’s home in the countryside, north of Whitby, Ontario. Completed in only three weeks, the album is composed of free-style verses recorded over demos created during his small-town sabbatical. Taking a page out of the punk rock handbook, each track averages two minutes in length and the album boasts a track list of 15 songs. k-os teams up with some of Toronto’s finest, including Kardinal Offishall, Shad and Saukrates, as well as Canadian super producers Kaytranada and Boi-1da.

Despite the title, k-os insists this is not a spoof project: “There has always been this push and pull as to what is the more authentic hip hop viewpoint. Is it only going to be urban city life? Or can hip hop be authentic no matter where you live? To me, the stix is really just anywhere outside of that conventional city life.”

This mixtape comes to us on the heels of Can’t Fly Without Gravity, the 2015 studio release from k-os. Since his first major label release in 2002, k-os has stood at the forefront of Canadian hip hop, consistently evolving and progressing with his unique genre-bending style.
