Andrew Loku

The highly questionable and tragic killings of Andrew Loku and Jermaine Carby by Toronto police are just two of the more recent incidents that inform the city’s Black communities’ turbulent relationship with the TPS. The Toronto chapter of the Black Lives Matter movement are holding a rally today to bring awareness to the need for more accountability, transparency, diligence and action from our law enforcement agencies and political institutions.

From Black Lives Matter Toronto:

Members of the Black community and their allies will hold a public protest at the Eglinton-Gilbert Parkette demanding justice for community members who have been victims of police brutality. The rally was called by Black Lives Matter-Toronto, who are specifically calling for justice for Jermaine Carby and Andrew Loku, both of whom are Black men who were slain by police in the Greater Toronto Area.

NEW MUSIC: Drake “Charged Up” (Bozack Re-Edit) (Prod. Maneesh x Frank Dukes x Noah “40” Shebib)

Ty Harper | Audio,Music | Sunday, July 26th, 2015

If you’re from this city you know (or should know) these attempts to slight OVO’s pen game are laughable… at least imho.

That said there are very real, critical discussions we can have about ghost writing and the legitimacy of collaborative writing relationships in rap-writing, and the valid expectations a client (whether it be another artist, producer or entity) should have when hiring an artist to give them a rap verse (these are the times I miss OTA Live! smh).

…. anyways, we’ve all heard “Charged Up” by now but here’s a nice refix produced by mans like Bozack, still.
