Video: 0017th Release "Black Man"; Pay Tribute To Michael Brown, Keith "Magic" Atkinson
Joe: Hailing from Hollygrove, the artists of 0017th return with visuals for their latest release, "Black Man," which illustrates the hardships that can come along with being an African-American man in the land of the free.
Trevor: The first full album from Toronto’s Tre Mission, “Stigmata” achieves something remarkable. He takes a genre which we think we know and which, in all honesty, he should have no right interfering with. Then he re-shapes it into something entirely new. Coming over as the missing link between Wiley and Outkast, Mission elaborates the connections (via his own roots in the Caribbean) between UK grime and North American rap and makes the whole thing sound as natural, as soulful, as hard and heavy as you like.
Trevor: As mega-plexes buckle under on onslaught of over-branded superheroes this summer, there's one heroic team-up that beats them all: Slimkid3 & DJ Nu-Mark! With the Delicious Vinyl release of their album-length eponymous collaboration, the legendary Pharcyde MC and Jurassic 5 DJ/producer have created a soulful Hip-Hop soundtrack for the coming months and beyond.
Angerville: Toronto MC Fortunato has released the new video "Flatline" off his album Unseen Armada. Directed by Del Reze for Streetscape Sounds and produced by Beaatz of the award winning group City Natives.
HiPNOTT: The Other Guys drop a new video in support of their latest album Seeds of Ambition. "15 Cents" is a fan favorite and the new visuals should win new fans over! As the hook goes, 'I'm tryin'a make a dollar outta 15 cents. I'm tryin'a make a dime so I can pay my rent.' "15 Cents" keeps things simple with realism and the struggles of everyday life. No Bentleys or Beamers over here! Throw a couple of dollars this way and cop the new album today.
Joe: Hailing from Phoenix, AZ, Sony RED artist Judge Da Boss puts his city on the map with his latest release. "Hell Yeah" is an upbeat, hard-hitting track that serves as a perfect display of Judge's amped up style and persona. With a cosign from super-producer Salaam Remi, Judge Da Boss is well on his way to making a name for himself in the music industry.
