NEW MUSIC: Dynesti Williams – Dun The Place

rez | Music | Saturday, October 17th, 2015

DynestiDun

A song that literally DUN’D THE PLACE on Thursday night at The Known [UN]Known. And be sure to click the YouTube link below to see the madness that was her performance at R.I.S.E. last December.

WHAT “DUN THE PLACE” IS REALLY ABOUT
“Dun The Place” is the tribal drum of freedom. In this song, the situations, labels, boxes, and beliefs placed on you can’t stop you. Your existence is supernatural brilliance. How could anyone else save you when you are only at war with yourself? Fight for self-discipline. Fight to be confident. Fight to rebel. Fight to let go. Fight to grow. Fight to love freely. Fight to BE unconditionally. Limits and fears are usually more mental than they are physical. Annihilate them and you will win. You will “Dun The Place” when you are dun shrinking.

rez | Video | Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Papa Won with some actual real talk. Take this one in.

Adversity can shut you down. Or, as in the case of Toronto hip-hop artist Spek Won, it can spur you on. He’s not afraid to look at difficult issues – he tackled police brutality in his recent video “Black Body.” It’s an elegy to the tragedy of past years, while it points to resistance and healing.

And Spek Won has looked challenge straight in the eye his whole life. In this clip from Exhibitionists, he opens up about the suffering he witnessed plague his father’s adulthood, and the driving force that suffering has become in Spek’s own life.

Watch Exhibitionists on Sundays at 4:30 p.m./5 p.m. NT on CBC-TV.

To accompany her debut EP release as Leila Dey (fka PG) – see above – Leila also lets loose some goodies from the vaults in the form of the Outta My System EP. So basically…a handful of older joints that were previously unreleased (other thank “Place Like This” of course). Must feel good to just let those babies go!

Anyways. The Leila Dey push has officially begun.
