[MP3] Listen to Three Tracks by Kaytranada’s Little Brother, Rapper Lou Phelps…

Dude’s spit game is aight but methinks Lou Phelps probably gets more attention than he probably warrants due to his connection to Kaytranada. Or am I being a little too harsh here??

[MP3 + Music Video] Toronto Rapper, Robin Banks: More Than Just A Local Shooting Victim Headline!

I will admit I was not familiar with local Toronto rapper, Robin Banks when his name appeared in the news as the unfortunate (but thankfully, not fatal) victim of a shooting incident recently.

I did kind of roll my eyes skeptically when he was described as a rapper though. Nevertheless, I decided to check out his music anyway, especially when a couple folks whose knowledge and taste I really respect, cosigned his music grind and was happy to hear that he was indeed a legit talented artist and not just someone mixing it up in the streets with delusions of rap life grandeur. In fact, he’s already been influencing the ‘6ix God’, getting well wishes from Drake nemesis, Meek Mill and is part of a burgeoning Somali-based hip-hop scene in the city so here’s to Robin’s speedy recovery and return to the recording studio to build on his promising career.

[MP3] Listen to Two Tracks from Toronto Rapper, ShaqisDope

Another (pun intended) dope rapper from The 6ix on the come-up. True to the first track here, ShaqisDope‘s flow is vaguely reminiscent of ‘King Push’, Pusha T but he’s definitely his own man on the mic.

[MP3] Listen to Three Tracks from Toronto Rapper, VNCHY

This dude’s been around for a minute but I missed the start of his come up. I’m gonna try and do a better job staying on top of the new talent coming out of my home town and Canada in general. Frankly, I could probably turn this blog into a Canada-only focused one without affecting the quality of the content in any way. Hmmm….

[MP3] Listen to Three Tracks from Allan Kingdom’s New Lines Album*

Dig what you heard? Listen to Lines in FULL: TIDAL | Soundcloud | Spotify | Apple Music

(* “Beauty” not actually from Lines but it would’ve made the post headline too complicated to point that out…)
