NEW VIDEO: K’naan – Nothin’ To Lose feat. Nas (will.i.am Remix)

rez | Video | Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Same video. Same vocals. Different beat. Well, they made it black and white. And sounds like will.i.am took it back to the pre-“Where Is The Love” B.E.P. Way better version.

Droppin’ Dimez was only one of the very influential radio shows that we lost when CKLN went off the air last year. Great to see then, that they’ve found a new home on CHRY 105.5 FM and will be live every Tuesday night at 11pm…starting tonight!!!

Shouts to JJ Rock and Mel Boogie who definitely play A LOT of local music and support the scene in any way they can. And shouts to every host and DJ that has blessed the Droppin’ Dimez show. The legacy continuessssss…

Should be a dope show tonight, featuring the MCs from the Jane & Finch cypher (info below).

First and foremost – THANK YOU!

To all of you who hit us up via email, text or twitter to say “Welcome Back” to the airwaves – it truly means a lot and we were fully caught off guard with all the congrats coming our way.  Tonight we launch our first official show on our new night and spot, and are having a house-warming party at our new home: CHRY 105.5FM.  Needless to say, we’re AMPED!

We kick it off tonight with some fierce MCs from Toronto – get familiar with the names Lola Bunz, BadAs$ Bukk, Rootz and Rushiie Raw….. Those BET Ciphers don’t have a thing on these  ladies from Jane and Finch who demolish the mic!   Here’s a little something to get you ready >> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHEt_bzglII  Also, we always rep for the team and welcome the ladies from www.Bad-Perm.com into the booth tonight!

NEWS: Melanie Fiona The MF Life Available Now

rez | News | Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

SO HAPPY for Melanie man. It’s such an accomplishment to have a sophomore album in today’s musical climate. No easy task. Love that this album is more about her at this moment in time too…rather than paying homage to her influences like her first album was. Big risk on her part to change up the sound but I think it’s gonna pay off for her in more ways than one. CONGRATS MEL! WE LOVE YOU!

MELANIE FIONA – THE MF LIFE IS IN STORES NOW. COPP THAT.

Likkle taste of what went down at P. Reign‘s 1st annual Spike For Life charity indoor volleyball tournament this past weekend. No idea how the actual volleyball went (lol) but overall this is a DOPE idea and I really hope some money came in to help out the community. Hope he keeps it up and that it grows to be something that has longevity and influence.
