"Latitude" the latest single from Big C’s mixtape The Prodigy, the project is a tribute to late Japanese producer Nujabes, who tragically passed away in 2010. In efforts to pay respect to Nujabes, Big C travelled from Toronto to Tokyo, Japan to shoot the video for “Latitude” in Nujabes’ home town. Filmed by David Allen, an acclaimed videographer in Tokyo, Japan and edited by Toronto's own, Craig Scorgie. Inspired by the complex, story-telling sounds of Nujabes’ beats, Big C wrote each song on The Prodigy with depth and passion. “Latitude” is a song that focuses on insecurities, and how hip-hop is an outlet for those who are otherwise unsure or wary of themselves and their surroundings. Hip-hop forces communication, reveals personal trains of thought, and verbalizes what is normally left unsaid. “Latitude” asks the listener to consider their insecurities and place them aside to reach the latitude they desire. Success and new heights rely solely on mindset and drive. We've had Big C on our radio show back in 2010 and he is one of the few from London, Ontario who continues to be consistent and original. Please tell me what you think of the video in the comments section.
I can't believe the news that Sean Price has passed away this morning, he was only 43 years old. According to reports from his family and friends, he died this morning in his sleep at his home in Brooklyn, NY. We don't know cause of death at this time. I had the pleasure to interview in 2011 and again in 2013 for TCUS 6 Year Anniversary. He was an amazing personality, emcee and his contributions of our culture with Heltah Skeltah and Boot Camp Clik will forever be remembered. I'd like to send my sincerest condolences to Duck Down and his family. I'd like you to comment on this post and tell me what Sean Price music meant to you. REST IN PEACE SEAN PRICE!
As you may know TCUS started in London as a radio show on 94.9 CHRW, during my time in the city, I had the pleasure of meeting people like The Goodz and I'm happy to share with you his debut EP No Time. My favourite track has gets me turnt up is Max Up and he has a feature with Roscoe Dash 2.0. Take this in and tell me what you think in the comments section below.
While the 'mecca' of Canadian rap has honed itself in Toronto, the talent that subsides just outside of it reveals just as much talent - and this time, it comes in the from London, ON, artist The Goodz. Layering elements taken from several genres, including rock & roll to R&B, the singer/songwriter carries elements of his upbringing as the son of Motown's Gary Martin of the legendary Funk Brothers and intertwines them with hypnotic melodies and bass-heavy production. With production from Mikhail, Deli and Fax Cain, as well as a feature from Roscoe Dash 2.0, the 5-track EP creates an experience that ties in elements of the London, ON, music scene alongside the dark waves and ambient vibes of the underground party circuit.
