The classics never go out of style.  When three emcees from Toronto get
together to collaborate on a track for the love of hip hop, only goodness
can come out of it.  In 2010, when Dan-e-o was visiting Kish in L.A., the
two were taking about future collaboration projects. While reminiscing
about their favourite old school tracks, and memories of Concert Hall
shows, Kish suggested to Dan-e-o that they do a cover of Biz Markie's

After reconnecting with Maestro while he was in L.A., Kish had found the
perfect third emcee to round out the track. The only missing piece was a
DJ.  Maestro suggested his sister, DJ MelBoogie, and the rest was hip hop

This project was done out of love for the music, but even more that that,
the track marked some firsts for this team: "Vapors 2012" is the first
collaboration between Maestro and Dan-e-o, along with being the first
collaboration between Wes and his sister MelBoogie. For Kish, this was
only the second song he'd recorded after a 15 year hiatus.

To compliment the song, Kish asked phenomenal artist, Sean "Cheeks"
Galloway, who did character design for the animated "Spider-man" series,
to create some artwork to accompany the release.

Special thanks to DJ Craig Brooklyn, TJ Habibi and Sean "Cheeks" Galloway.

Last week, Tanya Morgan reemerged on the scene, delivering ARMY Edition, the latest - and perhaps greatest in their Lessondary Radio Podcast series, with a track list of songs that included features from 9th Wonder, Skyzoo, King Mez, and more. Along with it came the announcement of their forthcoming You And What Army EP, and now the Brooklynati duo is excited to give fans "Whatever That's Mine," the lead single from the nine-track EP, which is now scheduled for a November 22nd release.

"2011 has been a transitional period, professionally and personally," explains Von Pea, now one-half of the duo alongside Donwill. "Keeping that in mind, 'Whatever That's Mine' is inspired by the idea that everyday is another chance to go for yours, no matter what it is that you're after. We were so damn down before, but now we're getting up and going for ours."

The track, produced by Von Pea, who's joined behind the boards for the EP by Exile, Astronote, AEON, and Brizzo, is feel good music in its truest form, a mix of bouncy percussion laid under guitar and vocal chops, perfect for Don and Von to get boisterous. "Playing with it ain't an option now/ You set it up, you better try to knock it down," raps Donwill. "Feeling good feels better when you ain't bitter/ And the only way to fail is being a quitter."
