If you’re an indie music fan, you should definitely get acquainted with rising vocalist Zaki Ibrahim! The South African-Canadian singer/songwriter brings new flavor to soul music with her majestic voice, dope style and eclectic instrumentals. In 2012, she released her third album Every Opposite, creating timeless and inimitable sound with producer Tiago Correia-Paul.
In the mid-2000’s Zaki moved to Toronto to pursue her dreams and soon became popular in the city’s live music community. Following her more international recognition, the songstress was granted the opportunity to open for Erykah Badu. Some of her accomplishments include being nominated for a Juno Award in 2009 and having her song “Ansomnia” featured on the ‘For Colored Girls’ film soundtrack in 2010.
Most of Ibrahim’s music is equipped with fast paced up-tempo beats with a hint of house and tribal instrumentals that make you want to dance, but it’s apparent that her main goal is for listeners to tune into her lyrics and exceptional production.
Was meaning to get this up last week but mannn…been swamped. Finally got the chance to check it out and yea…nice tape featuring that dark, intoxicated, moody, nocturnal new-age Toronto hip-hop ish. Tape put together by Kid. Dope.
God Bless Toronto. A project that represents the nocturnal underground life of the city. When it’s so late that it’s early, inside of a basement or a loft that you have to enter through an exit… Toronto’s creatives, hustlers, artists, tastemakers, users, insomniacs gather, give thanks and indulge in music, habits and hugs. It’s these peculiar moments in unexpected locations at ungodly hours where inspiration is indirectly conceived. It is the obligation of the like-minded to protect and nurture these moments.
The first compilation consists of new and unreleased material from some of the city’s most talented upcoming producers and musicians; Individuals who are beginning to develop and shape Toronto’s underground culture and sound.

It’s only Week 2 of rap artist Sese’s new weekly freestyle series #TWMS. And, the UTVMG/AMG artist shows no signs of letting up. This week’s beat choices come courtesy of a Hip Hop masterpeice. The year was 1995, and the Chef Raekwon of Wu-Tang had dropped one of the best debut albums in Hip Hop history, “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx”. This week Sese treats fans by choosing two different instrumentals to rock on this week’s release. Both “Criminology” and “Verbal Intercourse” are both classics in their own right. But, listen as Sese takes you back to ’95 and the ‘Purple Tape’ in this weeks #TWMS Freestyle.

More dopeness from Jayd Ink. Mad consistent debut push from the newcomer. Feelin’ the girl! And yea, the rap-verse-on-R&B-songs thing is super played out at this point but this could easily deal with a “Riding Solo” type verse from Rich Kidd, lol.
