Mixtape: Cityreal and Wes Mackey - "Good Morning Blues"

Cityreal: "Just a few months after the release of my debut solo album, The Beginning¸ it was nominated for the Western Canadian Music Award for Rap Recording of the Year. Since its release, I’ve been relentlessly touring across Canada, the United States, and France, doing over 100 shows and having shared stages with Ice Cube, Three 6 Mafia, Warren G, Dilated Peoples, Souls of Mischief, Swollen Members, Kurupt, Saigon, and many more. Both “The Beginning” and “Good Morning Blues” are entirely self-produced. I’ve also recently produced several songs for Madchild’s and D-Sisive’s forthcoming solo albums as well as many other artists. Furthermore, I recently received several grants from FACTOR (the Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent On Recordings)."

"Good Morning Blues features a lot of samples and interpolations from the early originators of the blues such as Robert Johnson and Leadbelly. The official download link is http://cityreal.bandcamp.com/ and the project is a free download."

New York, NY – April 21, 2012 – Rapper, actor, activist and music entrepreneur WHOSANE releases the title track single off of his highly anticipated album, BROOKLYN TO CAPE TOWN. WHOSANE, a veteran of the underground hip-hop scene is now making waves internationally from America to South Africa. Widely recognized for his lyrical ability and undeniably unique flow, WHOSANE’s been in the game for 10+ years, working as an MC, producer and music marketer. He has collaborated with renowned artists including Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def), Goapele, Raphael Saadiq, Chali 2na, and Jean Grae. After a 30-city North America tour with Mos Def, Jay Electronica and Erykah Badu in 2009, WHOSANE moved to Cape Town in order to further challenge himself as an artist and break into a new market, bridging the musical gap between America and Africa.
