Spade of Citizen Kane hooks up with DJ Law for a project of previously unreleased material from the Toronto O.G.’s vaults.
“Scartown Unreleased Classics” is a collection of songs we recorded from the years 2001 to 2005 which was never released. At that time when Citizen Kane was on the verge on making a major impact in the underground Hip Hop community world wide, but we were confronted with obstacles from the music industry that believed we were a little to “Street” and not friendly enough for Canadian radio. Refusing to follow the commercial sound that was becoming more popular at the time, we recorded melodic tracks with hard but poetic lyrics staying true the griddy style of music that made Citizen Kane unique. There is two albums worth of material in this album which is mixed by D.J. Law and appearances from Peep Sho, Califaith, Stitch 7 and many more artists we were working with at the time. The production is from Big Sproxx, Down to Earth, Product, Dungenetics and Lost Info. There are also tracks that include R.P. who left the group at that time for personal reasons never to return putting the music on hold for a good time. If ya love Hip Hop in its purest and realest form, you will love this album. It is a piece of Canadian music history from a group that laid the foundation for Canadian Hip Hop today. This is the album they never wanted you to hear. – Citizen kane

The fam over at 1LoveTO.com (which is currently down for for a sexy upgrade) put a bunch of us in front of Jalani Morgan‘s lens to pay homage to the city on our fitteds. Here’s the official blurberation:
We decided to show some love for our Toronto Blue Jays by inviting some of our friends to wear their favorite New Era 59Fifty and/or Snapback hats. This stop-motion video features a variety of logos and designs, including everything from the original Jays logo to the ’92-’93 World Series cap, plus the newly redesigned 2012 official logo. Let’s Go Jays!!!
