Full length project from CReW member mo’heat.

Fresh off of a strong 1st quarter in 2013, Creative Rebels World member/creator, mo’heat, recently released his diary of music L.I.F.E (Living Is Free Existence) on June 13, 2013 via Bandcamp as a Free Digital Download for all hip hop fans & lovers of music. The catalogue of songs has a wide variety of sounds, elements & emotions throughout the project. As a Toronto based artist, mo’heat was aspiring to create the most universal music for everyone and anyone from all walks of LIFE to listen to. With the title track as a nostalgic intro, the consistency from song to song gives a unique outlook on different topics of freedom, struggle & unity. There are elements of RnB, Rap, Hip Hop and Alternative music & all of the singing, melodies and vocals were originally developed. A couple songs to look out for would be “L.I.F.E. (Living Is Free Existence)” “Imagination” “Billion” and “Millennium”. There are a total of 13 songs. Written, conceptualized and created by mo’heat.

One of Malvern’s finest, Tona, drops his latest full length album “Silverspring Crescent”.

NEW MUSIC: David McCallum feat. Grimace Love “The Return” (Prod. Lancecape)

Lancecape proudly presents the third single off his project Return To The Classics. “David McCallum Ft. Grimace Love (The Return)”.

In typical Lancecape fashion he completely flips this sample. The David McCallum
sample is known to most people as Dr. Dre’s “The Next Episode”. That song itself was a monster hit. It was only right for Lancecape to chop this sample up. He took it to a different space and time. Underwater/bass heavy drums, and the sample flipped into a double time almost bollywood type feel. Something to show the world that he isn’t just a boom bap producer.

Lancecape got one of the craziest MC’s he knows to rock on this. Grimace Love is a name you shall never forget. He went in and destroyed the beat. 36 bars of craziness. From top to bottom, Grimace Love flips his flow to accompany the rhythm. With a lyrical prowess that is not to be taken lightly. He is in a league of his own and nobody could have done justice to this beat the way Grimace Love did.

INTERVIEW: Tasha the Amazon w/ Noisey.com (VICE)

rez | Interviews | Monday, June 17th, 2013

Noisey

VICE’s music site Noisey.com chops it up with new MC Tasha the Amazon.

Toronto is teeming with new young rappers, which is exciting because even though the city is more than happy to have Drake billboards pop up here and there, it’s certainly time for a freshman class. Tasha the Amazon, afreshwoman, is part of that cohort. Her new video “Scallywags” lights the taco-filled Kensington Market neighbourhood ablaze with a lot of public drinking and general fuck-you-we’re-cool behaviour that makes for an entertaining video. Since you probably are hearing about Tasha for the first time, we asked her some questions to try and get under her scalp and figure out what’s going on in there.

Noisey Canada: It seems like young Toronto rappers are very quickly finding their voice. Would you agree with that?
Tasha: For sure. We’ve been down here just living and DJing and partying, running mischief and making tracks… at some point you look up and realize people you run with are onto something big. Something different and important.

What’s the most fun part of being a female rapper?
[Laughs] I’m a rapper, I’m an artist, I’m a producer. So I guess the most fun part about it is transcending that category. Having rappers clamor to come to my studio, to collab with me and be produced by me. And schooling everyone. Constantly.

What are the challenges involved with being a female rapper?
For me, there are none. I guess some people see the world in terms of male/female, but that’s not the way the pie is actually sliced. There are only two kinds of artists – the ones who are great, and the ones who suck balls. There are lots of chicks and dudes in both those categories. The only challenge is to be real, to ignore the noise, to push yourself, to break the rules, and to fear absolutely nothing. If you can do that every day, you end up not sucking balls.

It’s all about avoiding ball sucking. Why does the Kensington Market neighbourhood work so well in a rap video?
Kensington is like Neverland. It’s a misfit’s paradise. There’s flame-juggling hippies, a good low-rider scene, nice tattoo spots, and your friendly neighborhood dope boys in the park. Plus there’s the legendary Sneaky Dees. Filming there, out on the street, and at hidden gems like Cold Tea… that’s that Scallywag life. It works because it’s natural for me.
