NEW VIDEO: Tasha the Amazon – Scallywags feat. Cola of Wifetaker (Directed by Colin G. Cooper)

rez | Video | Friday, June 14th, 2013

Yes. Her name is Tasha THE AMAZON.

Can’t lie. First time I heard of this chick (last year if memory serves correct) I thought the name was really wack and basically thought it was some crazy person just sending out emails (we get a lot of those, lol). All good though. Track + video are super dope. Glad I clicked on it.

Consider it the intro.

Tasha the Amazon — Scallywags (ft. Cola of Wifetaker) – Official Music Video
Directed by: Colin G. Cooper | http://colingcooper.tumblr.com/

A bomb in a china shop.

Toronto’s Tasha the Amazon is an artist, producer, and bad gyal. Notorious for rude stage antics and warehouse parties shut down by police raids, her unconventional lyrics deal as much with partying, drugs, and hood mischief as they do with anarchy and civil disobedience.

She’s shared the bill with genre-defining acts like the Wu-Tang’s Ghostface Killah and Raekwon, The Roots, Killer Mike and fellow new-school icons like Action Bronson. Behind the boards, her bold production style has already earned her collaborations with the likes of DJ Green Lantern, Grammy-winner Che Vicious (G.O.O.D. Music) and more. 



After cutting her teeth in collabs and collectives, the German-Jamaican powerhouse is dropping her first solo project, FiDiYootDem, in 2013.

Produced by herself and partner Danthrax (together, they form the production duo Bass & Bakery), the project experiments unapologetically with the future of hip hop. Meet the new school.

NEW VIDEO: Oshaun – Get Money (Directed by Xpress)

rez | Video | Friday, June 14th, 2013

Oshaun pays homage to Pam Grier, Sylvia Striplin and Junior M.A.F.I.A. in the clip for his new viral joint “Get Money”. Speaking of Pam Grier, was crazy to hear that Foxy Brown called up Pam Grier to ask permission to use the Foxy Brown name before she blew up as an MC. Gotta pay homage always.

Check out my latest Video “Get Money”. Sampled from Junior Mafia and Sylvia Striplin mashup and featuring Clips from the original “Foxy Brown” bad B*tch Pam Grier. Directed by Xpress.

http://www.GSXMusic.com

Oshaun has been working on his forthcoming project “Everything O” which is due out later this year. Before releasing the first official single, he collaborated with producer and Director Xpress for a special rendition of Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s “Get Money”. With additional vocals from the original sample from Sylvia Striplin and combined with the 70’s sound of the record, Xpress decided to incorporate visuals from one of the most influential Blaxploitation and beautiful actresses of the time period in Pam Grier. As everyone knows, her brand of acting and movies revolutionized black film as well as inspired the likes of Foxy Brown etc. So enjoy this Tribute/Mashup/Remix from GSX Music’s Oshaun and Xpress.

NEW MUSIC: Shad & Skratch Bastid “The Spring Up” (EP)

artworks-000050428068-99ssz9-t500x500

 

The Shad and The Bastid release their collaborative effort on arguably the beautifulest Spring day we’ve had so far.

The Spring Up is the result of fortunate timing, grapefruit Perrier, a shared high school obsession with Outkast’s Aquemeni, and a couple of sessions at Skratch Bastid’s Toronto studio this April. The 5 track collection marks a moment in time for the pair; embodying the spirit of Spring and also serving as a sort of prelude to Shad’s upcoming full-length, to which Skratch Bastid also contributes. The collection features a production assist from DJ Jazzy Jeff, and a turn on the mic from compatriot Cadence Weapon.
