Ty Harper | Music,Video | Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

BLKNXPRSS puts together some simple, yet effective, visuals for Tre Mission’s dope, self-produced soundscape off his “Malmaison” full length.

I’d actually check for a full instrumental album just on the strength of this one.

The Godfather of this Toronto and Canadian hip-hop thing releases album #7 and celebrates 25 years since the release of “Symphony In Effect”, with a project that features a cross-generation of emcees, singers and producers; including: Chuck D, K-os, Lights, Sadat X, Kardinal Offishall, Kool G Rap, Divine Brown, Saukrates, Glenn Lewis, King Reign, the Rezza Brothers and Lord Quest (c’mon, that alone is a pretty expansive lineup!).

Shouts to Wes man – he was the first taste of Toronto hip-hop I remember hearing when I came back to live in the Mega, and it’s good to see him still maintaining in 2013.

NEW ALBUM: Derek Christoff x The Arkeologists “the d.ark tape”

Ty Harper | Audio,Music | Tuesday, June 25th, 2013


Two of T.O.’s finest in the emcee and production game connect again for “the d.ark tape” which is a f*ckin’ dope title!

In 2007, I walked into a basement that would change my art forever. I realize that sentence is super dramatic, and equally as rape-y, but it’s the only way I can describe it. It was dark. Small. Low ceilings. Filled with cigarette smoke. I sat down on the couch, while Norman Krates [The Arkeologists] prepped his MPC2000 for our first session.

I ate a submarine sandwich. He rolled a joint. I swallowed a Percocet. He chopped up a sample. And I began writing what would become Kneecaps. A song, along with Laundry Room, that would make critics and music listeners look past the court jester of an artist I once was. A song that would literally change my life.

In 2013, I returned to the same basement to conduct an interview with Norman for a special 5 year anniversary release of my debut record, The B.O.O.K. While listening to him reminisce, I began having flashbacks of those sessions. I felt like 2007 again. A few days later I went back to hang out. Hanging out would result in Norm playing me beats. Which would result in me writing The Reunion Tour. We sat and listened to that song for an hour straight. It was 2007 again. We decided to keep going till we hit ten songs. All raw. All songs recorded on a $200 8-track in one day. All first takes. Embrace the imperfections. No promotion. Keep it basement.

Ladies and gentlemen…
The D.Ark Tape.

NEW MUSIC: Grover Washington feat. Charisma “A New Hope” (Prod. Lancecape)

Ty Harper | Audio,Music | Monday, June 24th, 2013


Lancecape presents you the forth single off his new project Return To The Classics. “A New Hope” Grover Washington Ft. Charisma.

If you are a Hip Hop fan like Lancecape is, than this Grover Washington sample needs no introduction. From super groups like EPMD to Black Moon it was a clear cut choice why this sample was to be chopped for this project.

Lancecape called upon Scarborough native, producer/MC Charisma to lace a verse on this beat. Lancecape states “Just from the high hat pattern alone. I knewCharisma would be the best fit for this song”. Lancecape was right. Charisma came in and slaughtered 24 killer bars. With a dope flow and ill lyrics, Charismadid nothing less than justice to this Lancecape production.
