Just finding about this now but they already have a bunch of episodes up so if you haven’t checked out the show yet, it’s all there.

NEW ALBUM: Tona – The Ivy League

rez | Album | Friday, September 30th, 2016

Bam! Just like that, Tona drops The Ivy League. Taking this one in ASAP. Copp that on iTunes.

TONA – THE IVY LEAGUE
Coming out of Scarborough, veteran rapper Tona marks his return with a new project, and even bigger aspirations. ‘THE IVY LEAGUE’, Tona’s follow-up project to his debut solo ‘CARPE DIEM’ in 2015, serves as a testament to his keen ear for production, bass-heavy vocals tones and silky bars, but also Tona’s ability to create a cohesive sonic experience.

Heralded by the most recent single “Red Eye,” the 17-track album features hard line yet harmonious production courtesy of longtime collaborators Rich Kidd, as well as Grammy-nominated Tone Mason and heavy hitter producer 2oolman of A Tribe Called Red. Etched with many personal tales of self-accomplishment, relationships, social views, political and morally ethical content mixed in with that hometown pride, ‘THE IVY LEAGUE’ shows a very introspective side of the Toronto vet that has yet to shine.

“The Ivy League persona was applied as a metaphor to demonstrate exactly how prestigious my career has been up until this point. The same way an Ivy League school would be classified as the highest level of academics pursuit, this is definitely a very high level of my artistry,” Tona adds.

In classic hip-hop bar-stacking form, ‘THE IVY LEAGUE’ shows growth in content and lyrical maturity that seizes the musical landscape yesterday, today and tomorrow. It’s a rare window into the complex artist and person that is Tona while demonstrating some unlimited range.

An example of how the Internet can be used for good. This guy put out an hour and a half worth of stuff that didn’t make the album. Dope!

Although. The title does force me to beg the question…what about the other 0.899%?

beats, loops, remixes and sounds made during the process of 99.9%
