Just came across this series of viral joints. So basically, new artist Proverbs has put together a series based on the artists that he’s enlisted for his new project. Shouts to him for putting this series together to promote his project but the more in depth look into the artists involved and where they are from is way more interesting. Will get up some of the other episodes but you can always just peep the YouTube page here.
Proverbs sits down with Andreena to gain more insight into her life as he continues to find vocalists to support him with his album Toronto Housing R&B.
So I guess Lokz finally conceded to the fact that he doesn’t have locks and has officially changed his name to the government. No shots.
Yuri Koller opens up about his personal growths and past achievements in his musical career. Includes appearances from Drake, Joe Budden, JD Era, P. Reign, & PG. Get ready for the release of his new Free LP “Open Doors”

If you missed this year’s battle like I did then you’ll definitely appreciate the video of the event. The whole battle is here (finals up above, rest of the show via TorontoRappers.com). And wow…SHOUTS to WondaGurl for being way too calm while quietly murking all the dudes at the battle. Stay humble my friend! Congrats!
OB premier’s a joint called “Mashed Potatoes” on KISS in the UK with DJ MK & Shortee Blitz.
OB O’Brien’s forthcoming track, ‘Mashed Potatoes’ featuring Samm Rawthstein got it’s debut European play on London’s biggest dance radio station Kiss. Premiering on the Kiss Hip Hop Show with DJ MK & Shortee Blitz last week on Thursday 21st September 2012. Check the radio rip below to hear the new smash from Canada’s new rising star, co-signed by mutli-platnium recording artist Drake.
OB O’Brien hails from Westdale Village in Hamilton, Ontario but has been busy working and performing on a global scale. The Canadian rapper and producer has written songs for artists such as Tyga, Jadakiss, Saukrates, and collaborated with Boi1da and T- Minus whose production will be heavily featured on OB’s next project, set to be released in 2013.
Recently, OB looked the part on stage at the MTV VMAs with long-time friend and collaborator, Drake giving shout outs to Hamilton and Toronto. His bond with Drake and Co began way before the music, their creativity in the studio together is a by-product of many years of friendship and respect for each other’s talent. With the general buzz around OB O’Brien growing by the minute, from his cameo in Drake’s HYFR to being his right hand man at the MTV VMAs, the time has come for him to carve out his own lane.
Dope-ass joint from Richie Hennessey. Interlude style. If you don’t know Richie (you’re probably sleeping) you should remember him as S-Roc from Brassmunk and from more recent collabos with the likes of Tona and others. Feels like he’s got a new solo push on the way that I’m definitely looking forward to. And shouts to my dude Joel Riley on the posteration. I know I haven’t made it to the store yet man but soon come…soon come.
By means of re-introduction, Richie Hennessey shares his first offering in a while: Live & Die.
Live & Die contains production from Toronto’s Gameboy and is the perfect track to fit the vibe of fall.
More new music from Spektaculah. “Tryptamine” and “Humphrey Bogart” still in heavy ro. Here’s the science:
ARTIST: Spek Won ft. Brendan Philip SONG: Le Pussy ALBUM: SOFA K!NG AMAZ!NG
INSTRUMENTAL: AU79 off of Tyler The Creator’s “GOBLIN” Album
Also contains audio samples of porn star Cherokee D’ass
This song was written and recorded by yours truly, during a time while I practiced what I like to call “involuntary abstinence” (a few psycho ex girlfriends will do that you). As a result of this so called involuntary abstinence, my porn watching increased …….dramatically. The homey Brendan Philip wrote and recorded the chorus…… the rest…….. history……. Le Pussy
Drex, Jelly and Snaz pay homage to the sticky. Nice. On a side note…must be a product of the cheeba cheeba but hip-hop has successfully distorted the meaning of the word prolific. Prolific means “a lot of” or “productive” or “producing in large quantities”. Like, when they say 2Pac was the most prolific artist in hip-hop it simply means that he recorded a lot. So in this case…not sure that a style can be prolific. With the right amount of weed though, I guess anything is possible.
Drex has taken an unorthodox approach to releasing his new music. He plans on releasing one three song EP per month over the next four months. The first single from the project “That Was Then” is called “Funky Kush” featuring Jelly Too Fly.
This guy‘s song descriptions are better then most people’s songs, lol. Get on the bandwagon now my friends.
Sequenced to grip and then haunt you, “Pacific Coast Highway,” foreshadows the death of the main character while also embodying the daunting feeling that he receives before embarking on his baneful journey alone (No Passengers in this Porsche). The chase of perfection, the want of something more, the Porsche 911. The melodic vocals courtesy of Danny Caesar (@DANNYixxi) are given from the point of view of a close friend who can’t help but sense that the quest his friend is about to begin is an ominous one. “I come to you as friend not foe, just thought that I would let you know.”
But it is too late. Our hero is indifferent. Blinded by ambition. Unaware he has already chosen to destroy himself, unaware that he sealed his own fate when he made his mind up. So what was originally supposed to be nothing more than an intervention has become a funeral. We are already at the wake of our hero, peering into the casket, singing, “I thought I told you don’t take it too far”.
