NEW VIDEO: P. Reign – Pon Tour (Directed by Planet Mind)

rez | Video | Friday, April 18th, 2014

Curious to know what’s poppin’ with P. Reign? Here’s everything you need to know:

When Drake wrapped his “_Would You Like A Tour?” in London last month, the best seat in the house belonged to P. Reign. In “_Pon Tour_” the rapper and OVO affiliate gives us a bird’s-eye view of Drizzy’s massive performances at The O2 Arena including backstage cameos from Rihanna, The Weeknd and “_When Drake hits you to fly out, you know it’s about to be a moment,” says P. Reign (born Raynford Humphrey) of the Planet Mind-helmed visual.

Despite a big name-check on Drake’s recent “_We Made It Freestyle_” (“OVO, Reps Up/and P. Reign is next up/ Watch Gway go crazy”), P has been keeping a relatively low profile domestically. He’s been spending time across the pond, as previous charges for cocaine have rendered him unable to travel and tour in America. “Because I haven’t been able to cross the U.S. border in a decade, I’ve been spending more time in Europe,” he explains. “_I’ve toured and opened for Drake on his last two Europe runs_.”

“_Pon Tour,” produced by one of Drake’s go-to sound engineers and producers Noel, is from P. Reign’s forthcoming “Dear America.” The June 17 mixtape on the Reps Up imprint was recorded over the past year and features French Montana, Waka Flocka Flame and the previously released “_We Them Ni—as_” with A$AP Rocky. “_I think it’s some of the best music I’ve made ‘cause it’s filled with honesty and frustration: recording under duress and uncertainty definitely brings out a lot of different emotions,” P. Reign explains.

In 2011, the upstart was on trial and subsequently acquitted of gun charges. Enduring a high-profile trial in his native Toronto has had its effects. His management shares that press around the trial ostensibly worsened his chances to cross the border–and P is funneling the experience intothe mixtape. “_I remember when I was fighting my gun charges,” he recalls, “_there were nights I would record thinking, ‘I might be in jail tomorrow.’”

Dark days behind him, P is hopeful for the future and all he wants is to cross the border to promote “Dear America” to its namesake. “_I’m excited for people to hear it. I just hope by the time it’s out, I’m able to come stateside and support it._”

NEW VIDEO: Brenden Hewko of SmashMouthEnt (Interview w/ We In The Pocket)

Ty Harper | Interviews,Music,Video | Thursday, April 17th, 2014

We In The Pocket talk Toronto hip-hop with SmashMouthEnt’s Brenden Hewko.

Some naivete in this interview, which is understandable given his age and the lack of localized mainstream hip-hop media in this city feeding young’ns the necessary history on their scene’s past, but he made some insightful points. Dude’s definitely been involved with some noteworthy projects in the local scene, and his comments at 8:14 are pretty much what every local blogger/promoter/deejay/scenster should understand and embrace from jump!

NEW VIDEO: Kardinal Offishall – Tattoo (Rudebwoy) (Directed by Kardinal Offishall)

rez | Video | Wednesday, April 16th, 2014


This came out of nowhere.

Brand new Kardi joint blending head-nod, greazy, positive and island vibes as only Kardi can. Super dope! And peep the blurb below for some more context.

Produced and directed by Kardinal Offishall himself and shot by Die Fire Films, “Tattoo” was shot in various locations in Jamaica. While we constantly generate the same visuals over and over again, we at decided to trod through some dark and dangerous spots, only to arrive at the greatest ending-giving back to the hood! The school in Clonmel, Jamaica is located in the parish where 2 of Kardinal’s grandparents came from and gave birth to several kids. THE TWIST is that in reality, the day the video was shot, Kardinal donated computers, sports uniforms, shoes, cleats, books, calculators, pencils and the likes to the school children kids. Big thank you to Nike Canada, Jim Williams, Sherif Gerges, Natasha Borota and the MPCF, George Sully and Sully Wong, Ferris Rafauli and all who donated to make this possible. OUT OF MANY, ONE PEOPLE!
