[New Music Megacity] O. - The Introduction (Yesterday's Tomorrow EP)

First introduction to ‘O ‘ (not to be confused with this ‘Oh’) – a dude that under his aka T.R.A.C.K.S. has been a crucial part of two highly respected groups – IRS & Big Black Lincoln (BBL) – that gave us two of the city’s most critically acclaimed albums: “Welcome to Planet IRS” & “Heaven’s Caught On Fire” respectively.

“T.R.A.C.K.S. Lament”  gave us our first taste of the kid as a singer; “Clementine”  – his duet with Andreena Mill – became one of many classic cuts off the BBL project; and his production/vocals on “Things Change”  made it a stand out single in Mayhem Morearty’s catalouge. Last time we heard him was about a year ago when he relinked with IRS to drop vocals on “Rock For You”  featuring Promise; and produce “No Regrets”  featuring Frankie Payne, Kardi and Kim Davis; all off TRF’s solid “The New North” album.

“Yesterday’s Tomorrow” is a collection of cuts he put together a couple years back but is officially releasing now. So in that sense, it’s a taste of where he’s been musically and kinda serves as a precursor for what to expect moving forward from this super humble and talented Toronto artist.

Definitely looking forward to hearing more!

[Free Chunes] Slick Mason - DON'TSLEEPONUS feat. UNO

DON’TSLEEPONUS is a song that will appear on the Left In The Dark project by the Toronto based rap group, L.I.U (Light It Up). It features L.I.U member Slick Mason and a guest appearance by UNO, another Toronto based artist with the production done by Beat Midas. These two artists talk about the struggles of trying to make it in their city and tirelessly working to stop Hip Hop fans from tuning them out or in other words "sleeping on them". The old school vibe on ths track takes a Hip Hop fan back to the early 90's vibe that the game seems to be missing a lot these days. Make sure you don't sleep on it.

Stupid phat shout out to Crooklin & Rich Kidd, this track is retarded!! Produced by Like (Pac Div)
This joint takes me back to N.Y park benches, cyphas and blunts. Straight Hip Hop no chaser. The cuts add to it even more so...Word is Crook is to complete a solo project. Soon come.
