Congrats to dude for being the newest label-mate of T-Pain.

Can someone confirm the spellage?


What.. Thee Album??

Juno weekend, in saska-ka-toon, and someone is going to get a Best Rap Recording statuette. No doubt, best of luck to those nominated, but not everyone cut an album. Considering, those buzz names that we all hear from somebody that claims the Prince, King, Heir to the throne of the northern state, we rarely get to indulge in a fully produced clip.

BTW - Brassmunk albums are in stores - The Fewturistic

I can't wait to get to the point where the business is put into the Canadian Hip-Hop game. Who really knows what an act is worth until they have a product that can be sold? Don't front like you don't know what I mean. I'm talking about a release with the ethics of Dead Prez, plan your work/ work your plan.
I bet the aspiring rapper / manager/ 'label' is reading this and calling out all the domestic artists that have released music through a respected distributor and have promoted their music and had a sales point for their album and saying.. 'psshhh they didn't go platinum'. Well, platinum is for the brave, and those are the artist that are comfortable to put out a piece of work for everyone and their mom's blog to criticize.
Just in my precious little opinion, let's see 2008 be the year of the album.
  • Take 2007 and get the sound right
  • Prepare your launch
  • Secure some finances
  • Do some paper work
  • Set realistic goals
  • Work until you get what you deserve

Lots of good artists + no full length offerings = Bad Biz and It Makes The Kids Cry.


It's....it's...it's...it's that ON TOP MUUUUUUUUZIK

Jumpoff aka Mouse bka Hi Haters aka Regular Joe aka Hustle and Flow bka Joe Budden is back at it again...
While waiting on a Budden album seems completely futile, it seems as if Joey is about to drop on the fans something they yearn for more. The 3rd installement of the MOOD MUZIK series mixtapes (although MM2 was more of a 'street album' format witht he amount of orignal songs on there), appears as if it is close to dropping. In a recent interview Joe Budden (NO 'S'!)stated that "it's coming sooner then you think. While this is the typical statement from most rappers wanting their buzz to stay high, it appears as if it may actually be on it's way. With a slew of interviews, radio appearances, and most importantly, NEW TRACKS/FREESTYLES dropping, it appears as if Joe is setting up that pre album/mixtape buzz. The internet's buzzin' about this new material dropping, and hoping that the Jersey City representative holds to his words in that MOOD MUZIK 3 will be better then number 2. Personally, MOOD MUZIK 2, is one of my favourite COLLECTION OF SONGS OF ALLTIME...Whether you want to call it a mixtape, or an album, I rank it in my top 3 of all time, without thinking twice. If the songs leaked so far are what Joey can give away from it before it drops, then I can see it actually topping the first two.
With songs already released such as OUTCAST, the heavy Metallica sampled UNFORGIVEN,and the BROKEN WINGS FREESTYLE, Joey gives us that heartfelt, introspective shit where he goes others are scared.
Continuing on with this trend, we get a look into the mind of this madman on MY LIFE.

Back once again, it's the INCREDIBLE

Yes Canadian artists drop albums.
I think the whole idea that videos are supposed to preceed albums, and then also follow them up is starting to stick with people in the scene. While there will will be those dropping random videos with no such album to follow it up, there is a STRONG, SOLID group of artists that have dropped a video, or will be shortly, to coincide with a 2007 release.
Here's a short, and incomplete list of albums that are expected to drop in the 07.

The Rawluck Movement - (self titled) - Urbnet / Honest Music
Rochester - Coming from the Cold - Maple Music/ FOUNDATION C.G.
Point Blank - (tbd??) - Tilt Rock Records / ( i think there is a major behind this)
Bishop Brigante - The Value of A Hustle - Bodog Music
Drake - (tbd???) - Universal (correct me if wrong)
Drex Inkredible - Honest Music - Honest Music
Saukrates - Coming 2077
BrassMunk - The FEWturistic - Viring Records
*feel free to add on to this list of who you are feeling and/or any other albums coming out which I have left off.

Check ya soon... P


Replacement Killers

Coming off an interesting weekend that included back2back 5a.m. post club snacks and a steady consumption of alcohol, I have to say there was a standout showing by 2 young urban spitfires. Drake & Trey Songz decided to film their video this weekend for 'Replacement Girl' in the video vixen capitol of the universe. My hometown! U can check the music on Drake's myspace.
There was a great party thrown @ Next Level on the shores of icy Lake Ontario by the boys @ Roundtable. There was also a live set by Trey Songz that included his hits. Personally, I think he has way more to offer than his mainstream hits, but hey. Soon after, Drake jumped in as they collabed for the upcoming video of the year... well.. we'll see how it goes. I got faith in 235 Films.


Shawty Wanna Ride?

A label that encourages gamblin addiction, a heavy work ethic, an ascending producer, a prime time feature from the latest R&B boy gives you our latest MP3.


Breakfast with Summer

This past weekend one of the harder working urban artist in Canada shot another video for his upcoming album "Music Starts with M". Malicious has dropped 2 videos over the past year, Heat Wave & Heavy M-T-L, that recieved consistent airplay on national video outlets (MuchVibe). Still a member of Offsides, Malish allowed RT! to work the wheel for the 3rd straight video taking over a grocery store for "Breakfast".

There must be some energy going with this new track because there's already a parody on youtube.Rotate your Screen&Enjoy:
