“Paupers and Royalty” was one of the tracks I really wished was included on the Canadian Winter free Bundle Up + Scattered FlurriesEP we recently hosted here at TCUS alongside Potholes. The Bundle Up EP was a sort of an “album trailer” as Hamilton based emcee Kobi said in an interview with us. But now that their full length album Just Wait Till February has been released in style at their Official CD Release party on February 4th, YOU TOO can hear this super rad track featuring Lee Reed, Nilla, Eklipz (of the dope Crown A’ Thornz) and the awesomely indescribable Motem.
I like how they’ve really stretched out this track live to give it a laid back, unhurried vibe. Johnny Fevrier on the turntables, Chintoh on percussion, and Scotty P on guitar chill out and hold the beat down while the emcees, in order, casually make their way on stage to throw down their stories– each a different variation on discovering Hamilton.
