Solid interview with Page courtesy of HHC. He breaks down how he wasn’t actually “balling” when “Balling Is A Hobby” dropped, touches on the (now old) Drake situation, speaks about the importance of travelling, talks about his upcoming project Things Young People Do and more!
“Wow” moment for me was hearing that they spent 100k on “Still Fly”. Reading the interview, it seemed to me that Page was being sincere throughout so most of me believes that number is real. For people here that seems like a lot but when trying to crack the U.S. market it’s really not a lot to spend on one song. It’s easy to spend over 100k on radio promo alone in the U.S. for one song. But 80k on that video sounds a lil’ crazy mang. Pretty sure you could do the same thing for half that amount.
HipHopCanada: Ok. And then you dropped “Ballin’ is My Hobby” which was your first big single. So talk about that period and what that was like, and the response you got from it.
Page: As a matter of fact when I first wrote “Ballin’ is My Hobby” I was actually working construction with my brother. I was making like $200 a week. I was living on my own at that time with my girlfriend, and I was actually very broke. And I was coming back from work and I got stiffed on my paycheck. I was driving back on Huronontario, and I was just sitting in traffic and I was just daydreaming about having money. So I came up with this concept, ballin’ is my hobby. You know one day I’m going to be ballin’ and it’s going to be my hobby (laughs).

Slakah re-releases his latest project “Something Forever” with some special additions.
Taken from BBEmusic.com
This is the Special Edition CD of Slakah The Beatchild’s “Something Forever” that was released recently in digital format on BBE. Because of the extraordinary high demand, Slakah and BBE decided to release a very special CD that comes with four brand new bonus tracks.
In Slakah’s own words “Something Forever” is “the theme that is forever at the forefront of my mind when I create music. We can easily identify music that has that indescribable timeless vibe, music that regardless of the time period in which it was created sounds refreshing and
relevant when played.”

It’s crazy how much stuff out of the city just flies under the radar sometimes. Pretty sure I’ve heard the name Jerzee ‘Tha Icon‘ before but had no idea dude was featured in The Source a couple years back (as per the video). Can’t say I know any of his songs either. Regardless, he’s part of a new group called FameCity and here’s some footage from an interview they did recently down in NY on Goom Radio (Internet station). Who knows, could be something to look out for in the near future….
Lol @ the random dude from Detroit at the end….?
