A little bit on the edgier side on most of the beats I have produced. Shak Diesel comes from Cleveland and he dropped this project 5 months ago. He got VERY lucky by purchasing the untagged version of this beat. Anyways, let me know what you think!
Listen to "Cigarettes" by Canadian artist, Chase Lifted. Lifted gives us a Childish Gambino/Charles Hamilton flow over our beat and gives us a very creative and colorful flow to compliment his dope cover art. Follow Chase Lifted on Twitter.
This placement comes from Gone Wallace and he rocks over a DJ iShine beat. Off of his layover EP "Highway 35: The Prelude (EP)", Wallace spits humility and he pays his dues on the mic!
What do you guys think?!
"Gone Wallace officially reveals the title of his first independent album with this teaser trailer. The album is set to be released in Spring of 2014!"
"After getting acquainted with The Board Administration thanks to Wale's efforts, and affiliate Black Cobain's movement, the imprint is ready to push their first lady, Mz. Sasha.
Utilizing popular quotes from Martin to set the tone throughout her new single, Sasha shows exactly why BOA is ready to provide a platform. "Hollywood Talk" puts all the bullshit to the side, leaving room for Mz. Sasha to get directly to the point — real raps. Expect her new mixtape, Sasha And The City, to arrive on Valentine's Day."
"Twenty-year-old upstart singer Alus has been cementing her way into stardom. Her debut eight-track EP showcases her sultry voice and is just the beginning to an illustrious music career.
When asked about the general feel of Alustrious, Alus responded without hesitation, "It's a lot of relatable music for everyone. I'm writing what I feel so some of it is fun, some is sexy, and some is just feel good music."
The sound Alus creates is ready to catapult its way into 2014 with a unique combination of acoustics that compliment her seductive vocals. It will come as no surprise to see a lot of newcomers taking notes from her style, trying to fold it into their own repertoire. A lot of hard work was put into this project and the EP will speak for itself. Grab the stream/download below."
American rapper PMatic from Queens NY, began recording music at a very
young age. At the age of 13, he signed a production deal with LL Cool
J 's Rock the Bells production label. Unfortunately, the company

Mardi Lex sends us his passionate track "Young and Gifted". Give it a listen and show the young dude some love.

"A genuine rare sample purist, Rayne's debut EP 'Phantom Of The Chopera' not only showcases all elements of his eclectic knack with putting together soundscapes, but it shines some serious light on both up-and-coming and established MCs from all over Canada.The dirty instrumental introduction, with it's dark synths and crunching kicks, will make any rapper worth his or her salt want to jump on it; the path for this project has been clearly laid from the beginning. From the early Kanye-esque string sample of 'The Revolution'; the stabbing horns of 'Real'; the eerie vocal sample on 'Pride'; the mid-90s New York vibe of 'Basic'; the bouncy 'A Little Rain' (Fun Fact: the beat was picked by Rayne Drop's son); the gritty cinematic 'Confirmed Kill' and the anthemic 'Air Jordans', 'Phantom Of The Chopera' truly appeals to fans of every facet of the genre.
MCs on the project hail from as far and wide as the appeal of Rayne Drop's production. From Toronto (iLLvibe, Truth Willis and Mickey Ulster), to Vancouver (Neph), to Edmonton (Brothers Grim), to Barrie, ON (Definition) and of course, to Prince Albert, SK (Mer and Knowledge), Canada has yet to be this well represented on one extended play."
