Young Tox is a 23-year old rapper from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada who is beginning to make his presence felt. Coming from a single-mother, growing up in a rough neighborhood and going through poverty, Tox appears as the "cliche rapper" but it is his story-telling ability and lyrical prowess that sets him apart from the rest.
Grayskul, the Seattle duo made up of rappers Onry Ozzborn and JFK, release their video for "Face and the Fang" today. The video, shot by Eric Miller, provides nightmarish imagery to match the dark lyrics of the track and is the first released from their upcoming album Zenith. The visual features each rapper in settings that fit their individual styles: Onry being the more mysterious half and JFK having a more aggressive rap approach. Onry simply explains it as "a day in the life of your neighborhood vampire and ghost ninja out trappin'. You know, the everyday norm."

Japhia Life pours his heart out on an impassioned and emotive banger entitled "Temporary Vacation" produced by French/Caribbean producers Drum Dreamers. In it he contemplates a potential end to him creating music, which may be figurative, and goes into his desire to work with fellow Philly recording artists. He is lucid in conveying that this potential end may actually be a new beginning. This song is a breath of fresh and a perfect end for summer.
