BLEMFACE emcee and producer NYIAM is back at it with STONERS, the third official album to hit the scene since last year’s independent release. On Stoners the Canadian emcee not only puts on a display of some of his most clever wordplay, but also keeps your head nodding to all 8 self produced tracks.
Since his formal introduction to the Toronto music scene , Nyiam has shared the stage with American and Canadian acts alike, opening for the notorious Dirty Dozen, Obie trice, and various local artists including Adam Bomb and Mayhem Morearty.From his hardcore rap style to his effervescent approach to making music, this multi-talented rapper and composer is known for leaving heads bobbing in his wake.
TorontoRappers.com chops it up with Harvard. Dope interview in the sense that Harvey’s sounding real genuine (actually hard to find when it comes to rappers, lol). Def looking forward to seeing what he does with the next project.

Ottawa, Canada – June 7, 2012 – Ever wake up thinking to yourself, “what impact can I make on the world today?”. I’m sure there is more than a few of us that even questions our very existence towards our respective societies while trying to “find themselves” in the process.
Canadian hip hop artist and writer F.Printz vocalizes these thoughts through a unique composition of an average person’s everyday life. Although he spares us the details, it’s clear that there’s definitely a sense of humility being brought to an art form that generally gets a bad rap (no pun intended) for exaggeration and braggadocio. The anticipation to hear what angles he takes toward Canadian hip hop and rap on a larger scale is definitely building.
Although this trailer falls short of a minute long, it’s message resonates for long after. It reiterates that life is more than what’s recieved at face value; true worth is found in the motives and intent.

The Carrington/Notes combination is back for the debut single off Blake’s upcoming “Failure” project.
Oui Self Made is proud to release “Legendary” – the lead single off Blake Carrington’s upcoming FAILURE Project. Produced by Ric Notes, “Legendary” evokes the raw emotions and hunger for success that mark Blake Carrington’s rebirth and evolution as an artist.
In this compelling and motivational track, Blake speaks as an advocate for those who have faced failure and overcome it to pursue their dreams. Shouting out influential hip hop legends Biggie, Tupac, and the Wu-Tang Clan, Blake makes it clear that he refuses to give up, and that his time to shine is now.
The FAILURE Project represents Blake’s commitment to making his dreams a reality, even when confronted with failure. Blake is an innovative and dedicated artist who has put a huge amount of work into his musical career, despite being faced with adversity. He is “failing forward” towards his success, representing anyone who has ever overcome failure to pursue their goals.
“Legendary” ends with a quote from Muhammad Ali that reflects Blake’s journey of over 10 years in music: “I’m experienced now, professional. Jaws been broke, been lost, knocked down a couple times.” Blake Carrington has been through the wire and risen above failure. Oui Self Made is making history and ready to show the world exactly what legends are made of.
Look out for the stunning visual accompaniment to “Legendary” dropping July 1st, as well as chapter two of the “Failing Forward” series entitled “D.O.P.E”, which will be released soon.
Official DJ Pack treatment for Tika‘s new joint “My Dream”. Song is produced by Larry Gates Jr. who was not only a part of Trackmasters (“Fiesta” times) but is also the SON OF ROGER TROUTMAN. Wtf. Random. I think they met on MySpace or something.
Anyways…DJ Pack includes Main, Radio, Instrumental, Acapella and 8-Bar Intro versions. Enjoy!
Look everyone! A visually compelling and thought provoking video!
