Ty Harper | Audio,Music | Sunday, April 21st, 2013


BMore BFore is an 8 song FreEP from BIAS Truth, formerly known as B.I.A.S which he is releasing on his birthday April 16th. Like most of his previous work, BIAS Truth handled the production, while delivering smooth, uplifting bars throughout the entire project. BMore BFore serves as precursor for his upcoming project BComing.

Bio: BIAS made the decision on November 2011 to take his passion for producing and writing music serious and it seems to be paying off. He prides himself on his “Originality” and on a first listen you can see just what is meant by this statement. He has produced and worked with
Blake Carrington (Buffalo, Toronto, and Los Angeles) and Euro league (Bronx, New York City) and local artists within the city of Toronto. He also is apart of Collectively All Determined, or CAD, which was created in 2012. Most of the crew is based in the Toronto area in Ontario, Canada, while Kam0 (Producer) is based in Paris, France. Each member has their own unique style, which is shaped by their influences and experiences. BIAS lives his art/music,
staying as true to him-self as he can be, no need to portray, with The BIAS Truth.

Ty Harper | Music,Video | Thursday, April 18th, 2013

New Vice feature on Canada’s musical-gwan’ns. Not sure if it’s strictly hip-hop/urban or just Canadian music in general – either way Raz Fresco’s first up to bat!

(and shout out to Big Mike over at Proper Reserve!)

For the first episode of our cross-Canada series Downtown Sound, put on in cooperation with our friends at HTC Canada, we met up with one of the Toronto’s most amazing up and coming rappers: Raz Fresco. Being the gentleman that he is, Raz took us for breakfast, brought us to the top of the CN Tower, showed us where to get jerk chicken poutine, led us to the best vintage spots in the city, freestyled on the TTC streetcar, then wrapped it all up with a performance at our super-crowded party at Wrongbar. Watch it now. It’ll be like you were right there with us.
