Tona-Source

Quick likkle feature on my man Tona courtesy of TheSource.com’s International Spotlight. Silverspring Crescent June 18th!!!

Hailing from Ghana Africa, Kwame Nantwi’s name, “Tona”, was given to him because of
his distinctive tone of voice, which he uses not only to project his rhymes, but also a unique style that transcends the typical boundaries of the Hip hop genre.

By the time he recorded his first EP, Tona appeared in the 2004 CBC documentary
Rhyme Pays: Hip Hop and the Marketing of Cool, a one hour special for CBC MARKETPLACE that discussed hip hop from a marketing standpoint. The film featured Russell Simmons, Damon Dash and was scored by producer, Agile, (Nas, Methodman). Also featured was Tona, one of three rappers invited to battle in the film, performing his original track, “Handle Your B.I.”

In 2005, Tona launched his own licensing company, Da District Entertainment, a tribute
to his home district of Scarborough.

“Hip hop in Scarborough feels like the foundation of the culture to me.” says Tona, “You couldn’t go no where in our city and not interact with it some how. Even if you didn’t understand it, it was there – the music, the streets, the culture. I love my city for that.”

Nice remix.

From crafting beats and songs for countless artists, rocking crowds at home and abroad, through long months of touring, endless studio hours, a tireless search for vinyl, while gaining many friends and fam across the continent, their new project emerged: the Re:Fresh…

Re:Fresh is a thank you to all their supporters, a FREE (name-your-price) offering set to showcase The Extremities as Canada’s Premier production duo.

VIDEO: Cuban – Studio Moments Part I (PartyNextDoor – Make A Mill)

rez | Video | Friday, May 31st, 2013

Shouts to Cuban who has been quietly and sporadically releasing stuff for a few years now. Like, he has teaser videos that I thought were dope that I haven’t even heard the full songs for…? I feel that with an organized, well-executed and more consistent push though he would have more buzz. Def still has lots of potential.
