First introduction to Halifax’s Debo & Juelz via their “Comin Up Stayin’ Down” joint featuring Tru.
Personally I’ve reached a point in my hip-hop tastes where the minute I hear crutch lines that throw women under the bus for random shi*ts and giggles, or for the sake of filling up bars in a verse, I’m immediately turned off (and that includes singers, dancehall/reggae/soca artists and pretty much any rapper – past, present and future – I might’ve considered dope) – but I also know if I used that measuring stick to reject submissions, there’d be none… or at least not enough to sustain any type of consistent homegrown blog. So all that said, I’d definitely like to see a hip-hop scene that cut that sh*t out. Like, if the majority of our ‘great’ artists can’t write a ‘hot’ song w/o making completely unnecessary, disrespectful slights to women (and the LGBT community), then the reality is, the majority of our ‘great’ artists need to step their sh*t up.
And I ain’t trying to throw these dudes, or any one artist, or JUST artists under the bus either – artists, media, consumers, etc – all factor into the current state of the music and culture.
Little recap of a showcase put together by Michael Asante over at The A&R Report and Click and The Stylus Group that went down this past summer. Full info below.
The A&R Report and Stylus Group had the pleasure of hosting current SR VP of A&R at Atlantic Records’ and original member of the Dungeon Family – Kawan Prather in the first instalment of Studio Sessions live at Orange Lounge Studios in Toronto, Canada.

“If you ballin’ like that, why you keep applying for grants?”
“I do this for any T.O. MC that’s been demoralized ’cause he refused to partake in a legacy of compromise.”
Frankie obliterates all wackness over the “Control” beat. Shouts to the whole Freedom Writers movement.
I’m just saying what we’re all thinking.
