Premiere: Young Troy – All My Dogs (Video)

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

Young Troy of the Frap Boyz drops the video for his banger off the Frap City EP. This is probably the second track I heard from them that caught my ear after “Cocaine”. Directed by Samuel Olaechea.

High Snobiety recently profiled a t-shirt launch they were involved in at men’s boutique CNTRBND in Toronto. Watch that after the jump.

Video: P. Reign’s Dear America Mixtape/EP Release Party in Toronto

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

We’ve been steady supporting the Scarborough rapper for a few years now, but 2014 officially marked the release of his long-delayed Dear America EP/mixtape, which had suffered a few pushbacks up until its release.

Last week in Toronto, P. Reign/REPS UP held the official release party at Lost & Found in Toronto with Drake DJ’ing and had all of his cohorts in attendance: OB O’Brien, PARTYNEXTDOOR and he even brought out Toronto rap legend Kardinal Offishall.

Congrats to Preme. I’m aggie I had to miss this. These guys know how to fucking live. Check out more flicks below.

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.

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.
