Shouts to my dude D.O. man. Gotta love the international hustle.
You may or may not be a fan of his music but that’s not the point right now. The point is to watch what he’s doing as an independent artist AND entrepreneur in Canada and try to implement some of those attributes into what you’re doing. I can actually say that D.O. is one of the few completely indy Canadian hip-hop artists that actually LIVES off music. I mean, supports his family and has no other job and doesn’t do anything illegal (lol). He’s def doing something right so if you’re trying to figure things out he’s def a great person to talk to. Anyways…the EPK helps break things down.

A profile on Northstarr Entertainment Inc. made in collaboration with Muchmusic and Promofact. Profile on Urban label based in Canada founded by Duane “D.O.” Gibson
Northstarr Entertainment is on the forefront of Urban music in Canada as a leading independent label and consulting company focused on Hip-Hop. The style of music within the label’s catalogue features a broad range of smooth, soulful, conscious, and melodic Rap music.
With a solid track record of success, including consistent charting on national College Radio Charts, regular national commercial radio and video play, tens of thousands of views on YouTube, and the most active touring schedule of any Hip-Hop artists in Canada, Northstarr Entertainment is rapidly building buzz on an international scale.
T.O. and MTL connect for a new project from a new group called Ain’t No Love. Not exactly my thing but the singer sounds pretty proper styllll.
Two unique emcees, one innovative producer/DJ and an exceptional singer have joined forces to create one of the most interesting musical groups to come out of Canada. Home to Toronto and Montreal, they’ve cultivated a sound impacting both the Hip-Hop & Electro/Dubstep scenes in both respective cities. They collectively began their group in 2011, however, each separate artist have created their own buzz through dozens of live shows, releases, features and networking. “Ain’t No Love” brings the streets to the club, providing a style of music that crosses genres and market pools, a feat not easily accomplished.
This album was fully produced by Liam Clarke (Love Thy Brother). It was recorded & engineered by Andrew Kilgour (Fresh Kils) at the Kilzone. The masters were completed by Tom Rogers for Atomix media.
The album was written by Roly Broere (1990), Elias McBean (Beanz) & Saidah Bowen (Saidah Conrad).
Ain’t No Love is – Liam Clarke, Beanz, Saidah Conrad & 1990.

Ian Kamau in conversation with Bob Marley’s granddaughter?! I’m down.
This Friday, August 5th (in Toronto) I am organizing an informal Gathering on youth and spirituality with Rita & Bob Marley’s granddaughter, Donisha Prendergast. This session is connected to a film called RasTa coming out this September; the session on Friday is called RasTa Sessions: Reasoning On Youth and Spirituality, it is a FREE and informal conversation in Alexandra Park in partnership with Scadding Court Community Centre (where I worked for years in my teens and early twenties). The session will explore tradition, spirituality, culture and knowledge and give young people the opportunity to speak with Donisha about their own spirituality, ask questions and contribute to the conversation. You can find more information about the film at www.rastaonline.ca

I’ll have to go back to be sure but right now I’m saying this is RT!‘s best video to date. Salute.
Umm…this is pretty random lol. If you ever wondered what you would get if you mixed TO + NY + Greg Nice + the ’70’s…now you know.
The checkered taxi cab and dashiki may pay homage to the throwback vibe of the Sheen Bros’ “It’s So Hot,” but directors The ICU keep this party clip fresh and focused. This red hot blast of disco rap from 4th Pyramid, Cosmo Baker and special guest Greg Nice stays lit from dusk ’til dawn. You’re going to need to keep those shades on, y’all.
