EVENT: Alias (Documentary) Screenings @ HotDocs 2013

rez | Events | Friday, April 26th, 2013

So apparently my dude Mr. Knia is part of this documentary that’s premiering at HotDocs tonight. Juuuuuust found out about it. There’s two other screenings in the coming week though so I should be able to go check it out. Here’s the info:

“Black people have been the first at being last for a very long time. So now we’re trying just to get even.” – Alkatraz

Street rap thrives in the Toronto neighborhoods of Regent Park, Don Mills, and Jane and Finch where the music and lyrics are the voice of power and protest of marginalized communities growing up in urban poverty. Michelle Latimer makes her feature doc debut with a powerfully cinematic, observational doc that captures the realities of five Toronto rappers trying to escape the hustle of drugs and danger through their music. Featuring rap artists and producers Alkatraz, Trench, Alias, Knia and Keon, the film digs deeper than the usual portrait of the rap world as glamour, guns and swagger. Intimate scenes reveal a layered, complex portrait of their lives and dreams of achievement, their families, violence and conflicts with the cops to show what it takes to survive on the hyper-masculine streets of the hustle in the T.Dot. Lynne Fernie

VIDEO: k-os – Try Again Live w/ The Roots (Jimmy Fallon)

rez | Video | Friday, April 26th, 2013

Footage from k-os’ time with The Roots the other night on Jimmy Fallon. Stupid dope indeed. Via StupidDope:

The Canadian MC known as K-os returned to the game recently with a brand new album, and followed that up with a dope performance at the Jimmy Fallon set. Today we get footage of his performance, where backed up by The Roots, K-os ran through his track “Try Again”.

K-os is no stranger to the stage, and showcased his talents rather well while being backed by The Roots, showing off his lyrical abilities, his songwriting skills, and more.

NEW MUSIC: Marco Polo feat. Tragedy, Lil Fame, Adrian Younge & The Delfonics “Stand Up” (Remix)

Based on what’s been ‘leaked’ and his 10 year track record I think it’s safe to say this Marco Polo album is gna be pretty tight.

With the fifth and final leak before Marco Polo drops his highly-anticipated free-LP, Newport Authority 2, Marco states “I did a remix for “Stand Up” off the brand new Adrian Younge presents The Delfonics project (who am I big fan of, y’all should cop anything he’s a part of.) Adrian sent me the album early and I made this beat. Tragedy was originally gonna lay down one verse on this on some freestyle sh*t, but once I started hearing his bars I refused to let this be a one verse song! Three verses later and appropriate hook by Slap aka Fizzy Womack aka Lil Fame we have the “Stand Up” remix. Tragedy will have an alternate version of this song on his upcoming album as well. Now please enjoy the final leak from Newport Authority 2!”

Adrian Younge Presents The Delfonics is available via the Waxpoetics store: store.waxpoetics.com/products/pre-o…e-delfonics-lp
