New name, new sounds, new EP!
KEMI, the artist/producer formerly known as KemiKAL, unveils the first single leading up to the release of his forthcoming EP (Title TBA). The self-produced project is to be one of his most critical creations yet.
The song “Usher Raymond” touches on how artists allow the thoughts and opinions of the industry – as well as the critics – to force them into limiting “boxes” and expectations. KEMI’s experiences in the game have shown him that the only true path to success is one he creates on his own –one that he paved and will continue to trek.
Keep an eye out for KEMI as he “Ushers in this new era”.

Produced by Factor, Def3’s latest single, “The Truth” featuring Shad And Skratch Bastid, is one of 11 reasons his latest album, Wildlif3 has been topping the Canadian and U.S. College Radio hip hop charts all summer. After over 10 weeks in the top 10, the album recently reached #1 overall in Canada via Earshot Online Magazine and is currently #10 in the U.S. on the CMJ charts. This Canadian All Star hip-hop lineup is the perfect showcase of why these 4 are some of the most respected hip hop artists the nation has to offer. Factors’ contagious, melodic production is the perfect gateway for Def3 and Shads back to back, precision blend of brains and brawn within their verses and delivery. If that’s not enough, Skratch Bastid who handles the cuts on the track starts the song off by cutting in the classic Grand Puba lyric, ”We keep it tight and that’s the way its supposed to be” whom is also a referenced in one of Shad’s punchlines. Bastid then wraps the track up nicely with a scratch verse of his own, displaying a classic yet tasteful recipe of turntablism for all the true heads out there.

Even when when your resources are limited, Yu$$o proves that you can turn nothing into something by hard work, determination and the will to win!
“I wrote this song after a moment of realization. I discovered that no one will take sympathy upon your situation because we all have our own struggles to deal with. That if you want something bad enough your going to have to go out and get it by any means necessary to show that it’s more than just a want. It’s a need.”
