Brockway Ent presents: 2011 Canadian Rap Future Superstars
Ottawa, ON - In continuing with their annual holiday tradition, Brockway Entertainment has compiled their 22 favourite Canadian rap tracks of 2010 and packed them all onto one album. The '2011 Canadian Rap Future Superstars' compilation is non-profit initiative aimed at providing exposure for up-and-coming Canadian rap artists. The album can be downloaded and ordered for free from www.BrockwayEnt.com.
The diverse 2011 compilation features 34 Canadian artists, 8 Canadian DJs and 17 Canadian beatmakers, spanning 10 Canadian cities from Halifax, NS to Victoria, BC.
Brockway Entertainment increased its community collaboration in 2010 as Moncton's Nayles provided the album design, and Montreal's Asher Media Relations will be providing publicity assistance again this year. Anyone interested in getting involved with next year's compilation is encouraged to contact troy(at)brockwayent.com
The 2011 track listing features:
The compilation began in 2003 as a handful of burnt CDs made by executive producer Troy Neilson for friends & family during the winter holidays. In 2005, Neilson made extra copies, which were sent to campus radio and other media outlets. Since then, the success of the compilation has continued to grow, while annually topping the campus radio rap charts.

"As an artist, I understand the struggle", states Neilson. "For years I wrote reviews and features via HipHopCanada.com to provide exposure for Canadian rap artists. By 2005 I was starting to run short on time, so I explored other ways to give back to the community. That's when the compilation series really began to take shape."
Artists wishing to be considered for next year's compilation are encouraged to submit their music via SonicBids ( link coming soon ) or by sending full CD to Brockway Ent, PO Box 90014, Ottawa, ON, K1V 1J8.
