In my expert opinion all these verses need to be longer. Thanks. Shouts to the crew.
Served up to you char-broiled, strait off an open flame, the “F-DUB” collective brings you its latest instalment of pure, unadulterated artistry: The Grille. Local 24 hour diner The Grille has played second home to The Freedom Writers for the past 2 years whether the occasion be an all-night studio session, video shoot, a heated hip hop debate or just straight politicking. Filmed in one take Theo3, Tona, Adam Bomb, Frankie Payne and Progress terrorize the raw and gritty backdrop provided by in house producer/engineer/director Big Sproxx with the perfect blend of lyricism and punchlines that is sure to have listeners bopping their heads and twisting their grilles. Special shout out to our favourite waitress, Jackie aka Ja-kay… Woosh!
You know that dope-ass joint she released last week, “Crazy Love”, which was stream only…? Well here’s the DL version. Thank you Ms. Mill.
TORONTO VOCALIST, ANDREENA RELEASES TEASER IN PREPARATION OF HER MUCH ANTICIPATED MIXTAPE “NAKED”
Toronto, ON (Oct. 29, 2012) — Following the success of her infamous mixtape “Ready To Fly,” Andreena (formerly known as Andreena Mill) is gearing up for a very busy 2013 with a new mixtape, new sound & a brand new attitude. The upcoming mixtape entitled “Naked” has an expected release for the top of 2013. The first single titled “Boss Chick” is currently in heavy rotation on radio. Andreena has allowed her fans to hear an exclusive teaser from the mixtape titled “Crazy Love.”
You already know that we’re up on all things Andreena but I just realized that we never got up her 2 recent cameos with DMX. Don’t have the official word (maybe I should just ask her, lol) but I’m assuming that after X did his “Last Hope” dub he just had to get Dreena on his tape Undisputed. Can you blame him? The connection resulted in two joints, “Cold World” and “No Love” both produced by the homie Snaz and Dame Grease.
And speaking of Snaz, Dame and X…There’s a Machine Gun Kelly joint called “D3mons” feat. DMX that Snaz produced with Dame Grease but the label messed up and didn’t give him the production credit. Bah. Peep the joint under the hood.
Intro to a new artist called The Flan. No idea what that means but ok, lol. The crew’s been putting in work for a minute though so check out the YouTube page to get caught up. End of the video is kinda hype tho!
First track off For The Flans 2 out soon! … stay posted. Like, share, comment and enjoy 🙂
Times Neue Roman tour Mayor Rob Ford through the geography of the night.
In Times Neue Roman’s #LateNightToronto, a hand-made mask, portraying Mayor Rob Ford infects the city. The mask becomes a vehicle to explore the dark and decadent geographies of Toronto after-hours.
Directed by Glenn Michael, the video features a wildly diverse group of Toronto artists ranging from drag queen-mayoral candidate Keith Cole to producer-rapper Rich Kidd who also lends a vocal to the song. The Fordian masks were designed by Ilona Fiddy.
In conjunction with the song and video, the band has built a interactive Tumblr page to document Toronto’s after-hours happenings. Instagram users can tag #LateNightToronto on their nocturnal photos, and the images will automatically appear here: http://latenighttoronto.tumblr.com/
