Shouts to Saidah and Click for always pushing the envelope with their album campaigns. I’m very interested in seeing how this all comes together.
So, I’m working on a new album and joined with PledgeMusic to create a place to interact with people on this journey. The album is called RedBlack&Blue, named after the colours of my three totem animals — Red Robin, Black Panther and Blue Butterfly — and about finding your voice, speaking your truth and empowering the human spirit.
Join me on this journey and choose one of the really cool exclusives that I’ve created to engage and build a community around the creation of this project, which includes releasing three 5-6 song EPs.

Creative REbels, ShaQ and Tray both innovative workers back at it again with another banger. With their hot new release of, “Trillium” (Prod. By Ysc Roll) they continue to express the essence of their well-known Toronto hip-hop collective, CReW. ShaQ hopes to build the same kind of buzz that his fellow artists have been cultivating, while helping CReW expand to new heights with his own unique sound.
Check out more CReW music from ShaQ on his soundcloud (https://soundcloud.com/shaq-provo) and expect to hear more from this upcoming Toronto, Ontario rapper this summer 2013.
The track ‘Clayco’ is a public service announcement and Derek Wise’s new introduction; brought to life by hard hitting lyrics, a menacing bass line and chopped and screwed instrumentation by Lil Ugly Mane. The 20-year old Toronto rapper implicitly and explicitly lays out the recipe for his persona, but more importantly, he makes it clear that he’s a voice to be heard. Derek Wise new free album, Mom’s Basement is set to drop late summer 2013. It will be a combination of a whole new wave crafted by the rapper himself. Hard knocking, stellar hip-hop production with a new sound that showcases Wise’s clever wordplay and witty lyrics that displays he can be mentioned with the best of them. Mom’s Basement is a crowning balance of experience, tunnel vision, raw talent and a triumph of immaculate taste.

Powerful impact on dis track!! All the MCs shine individually on their own as they trade flows on this classic posse cut. NewBreedMC and UNO go back and forth on verses followed by cuts provided by none other than Relic. Last but never least Louwop comes in to finish it in true Microphinist form. A heavy example of what raw MCs can do with their voice box
