To build anticipation for their upcoming full length release “The Popcorn Tape“ Bakers Club members Raz Fresco of Toronto Canada & ChillxWill of Tacoma Washington present “No Hookz” , a 6 slapper release of them rhyming back to back over classic east coast instrumentals with no hooks, no pauses, just raw bars!
Recorded and mixed in 1 day with Raz recording his verses in Toronto & Chill in Phoenix “No Hookz” brings you back to that era of raw in your face rap & is just a mini showcase of what to except from their 11 song all Raz produced “The Popcorn Tape” set for a late 2012 release.
Marina Boy TV was invited to the “Who Got Next” Artist Showcase last month @ the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Toronto. It was a night of celebrating local talent and showcasing their music for some of the industries biggest names including the senior VP of Island Def Jam Records, Max Gousse.
Just a remix I felt like doing (which is a mixture of Camp Lo’s song “Luchini” & Angie Stone’s “Lover’s Ghetto”) before the release of my upcoming free project entitled “Open Doors” with 10 new original songs.
If you ever heard me rant about the fact that there are kids in this city that you probably never heard of selling out the Opera House with no traditional buzz – this was the dude I was talking about. He did that at 17 and if I recall correctly he had something like 400 twitter followers when I checked back then (don’t know why I didn’t follow him then either.. if I did I would’ve caught this when it dropped earlier in September, smh).
And hey, I ain’t saying he’s the second coming of anything, just that: (i) there are artists with 10 times the # of ‘followers’ he had back then that still can’t sell out the Opera House, (ii) I’d put his 1000+ followers up against alot of those artists’ and feel pretty confident, and (iii) there are movements upon movements in this city happening over and below all our heads, which is why we always stay humble over here and enjoy the ride as if we’d just hopped on it today.
