Aspektz is the perfect counterpart to Academic Probation 3’s anthemic beats with his aggressive flow and playful lyrics, inspired by legends of hip hop like Big L and Jay-Z. These summer party tracks are already leaving their mark on 2013, dominating U.S. College radio with four Top 5 hits (“In the TDot” #3, “Swivel” #4, “Snowday” #4 & “Gametime” #2 and “I Love Your Style” currently climbing into the Top 10 at #8.
“I’ve been digging deep and working hard to capture that timeless sound loved by all hip hop fans,” says Aspektz. “That classic spin is what stands the test of time, keeps the music pure and true to the genre.”
With the release of Academic Probation 3 comes an interactive video campaign that features 360-degree music videos that immerse the viewer inside the party scene. Check out the Much Music-premiered video for “Swivel” to experience a futuristic look into music video production: http://www.gopano.com/video/217 .
Aspektz has proven to Toronto hip hop fans that he has the chops to share the stage with the likes of Young Money, Keys n Krates & Zed’s Dead. Recently, his work has been featured on the 2012 London Olympic broadcasts, in XXL Magazine and in the platinum selling videogame DJ Max Technika.
His latest single “I Love Your Style” features bassy dub beats produced by Juno-nominated producer Rich Kidd. “I Love Your Style” just reached #8 on US college charts Record Breaker and Rap Attack Lives in its fourth week. Check out the video here.

Baltimore-bred, Los Angeles-based emcee E Major presents the self-directed music video to “Feature Presentation”, the Rexamillion-produced second leak from his upcoming album Baltimore Bruin. Coming on the heels of his video for "Zodiac Freestyle" (watch here) the "Feature Presentation" video focuses on his adopted home of Los Angeles where he moved to a couple of years ago, a gamble for an artist with the kind of support he commands in B-More.
