Saw that dude Church last night at the Rich Kidd 6 release party (congrats Ritchie!) and remembered there was a goodie sitting in the inbox that I was meaning to check from a couple weeks ago. I swear…the Cityonmyback inbox is kinda crazy right about now…
Anyways, here’s a joint called “Jose Bautista” from Stratford-based MC Nukky Grissom featuring your boy Church.
Volume six in his series (coincidentally subtitled “City on my back”) gets a release party with a live performance from the man himself supported by deejays Wrispect, Nana, Mensa, and Meka from 2DBz! + Lancelot and Lowkey from YHTK!
First visual introduction to 19-yeal old rapper NÜE, who says of his debut video: “the visual doesn’t serve as your typical video but more of a subtle message of the battles of a young aspiring artist face internally everyday.”
“GOD” Produced by MDMA is the first single off his upcoming “Dreamcatcher” mixtape.
SepTO pays homage to the Ghetto Concept classic (and the Scarbarian bike trails) with the first single/visuals off his “T.O. for Toronto” project out this Friday (mixed by DJ Grouch).
Growing up IN THIS TOWN, when you hear people TALK THAT TALK its likely you’ll notice a bit of that BAKARDI SLANG off of the tongue. I’m born and raised in toronto, so my times here have been the BEST I EVER HAD. Whether we spent our days pretending to be PILING PAPERS, spitting rhymes ON THIS MIC or in the streets REALLY LIVING, we used up our seconds given to us by FATHER TIME with no regrets or lengthy retrospect. So LET’S RIDE together, I’ll be your tour guide through dot city. Just make sure to keep it EZ ON THE MOTION when I tell you to, otherwise you may bump into a DREADED FIST and get introduced to some OL TIME KILLIN. But don’t let that discourage you. Over time you’ll develop WHAT IT TAKES to live in and love this city. I’ve been here my whole life and I’ve NEVR LEFT, nor do I intend to. NEVERA EVERA.
