Video: Big Lean – Everything’s Alright

Friday, September 26th, 2014

Quick sidebar: last year when Complex asked me to write about the “King of Toronto” (in reference to the Kendrick line) and break down his “royal court”, I got my head tore off in the comments for not mentioning Big Lean. (However I was 8000% right about OB & P. Reign…)

This track is produced by REPS UP producer Pro Logic. The second track is called “Till The Morning” and comes on at 2:37 mins into the video. Lean’s Enough is Enough should be dropping at the top of next year.

The video, shot in St. Mary, Jamaica and Parma Court in Toronto, also features a cameo by the homie Jimmy Prime.

Tre Capital – Gundam Vol. 1 EP

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

As promised, Tre Capital delivers his first effort Gundam Vol. 1. Tre is the 19 year-old son of West Coast legend Xzibit and dropped an impressive visual/leak with “Javhari Bourdeau Flow” (produced by Prezident Jeff) which I’ve had on repeat for the last month. Then he followed that up with an actual anthem with “Prestige” that our very own Illy helped put together with Toronto’s WondaGurl & Sean Leon. The track is at nearly 75k plays on Soundcloud:

Tre actually has an interesting story to go along with the release that you can read on his interactive site: Tre-Capital.com.

Stream the full project after the jump.

I feel partly responsible for this release because I spent months verbally harassing Dirt to put his beats on Soundcloud, so here we are happy to give you the first leak from his upcoming debut project, the Avant Garde Experience EP. Look out for this, collaborations and production on other projects from the Montreal veteran producer.

I heard an earlier iteration of this track before Sean Leon was on it and I really enjoyed it. This and the intro “End of the Road” off his new project are my favorites off this new tape.

If you’re into this, check out the amazing Birds of Paradise (EP) that was released at the top of the year. Produced by Jordan Evans and Matthew Burnett of “Pound Cake” & “Not Afraid” fame.

Premiered by Erika over at Billboard. Shouts to Illy, Jordan & the whole ixxi.

This first appeared as a 1:46 snippet on Killa’s “Ghetto Heaven Vol. 1″ last year, but Chainz’ verse was cut short. Cam is now making it the single for his next 1st Of The Month (out October 1st) and making it available on iTunes. The video will be out tomorrow, so check back in for that.

Video: Kanye West Fires Back At Media (Final Show in Australia)

Monday, September 15th, 2014

This is rap fucking music.

The media has made Kanye have to explain himself in the middle of his final show in Brisbane, Australia. Kanye talks to the crowd in a “random stream of consciousness” rant:

“I’m a married, Christian man with a family”

Kanye talks directly to Matt Lauer, The View and major news organizations for emphasizing on him more than the real issues going on in the world these days, also alluding to Michael Brown & Chicago’s murder rate.
