I'm a little late on this one, but k-os released the visuals to "C.L.A.", off his BLack on BLonde album, earlier this month. I still haven't had a decent chance to check out his latest album, which I'm kicking myself about, but this is a pretty dope cut. Travie McCoy joins the Whitby-raised emcee/singer on this one, which was produced by Phen Ray. Enough about the artists, though; the real draw here is the music video itself. Just like he did with the visuals for "I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman", k-os brings a cinematic feel to this one, with an interesting twist - make sure to keep watching until the end.

Relic just dropped the visuals to his self-produced "Work Of Heart", the first single off his forthcoming album Miles to Go. In order to fund his upcoming album, Relic has put out a beat tape titled For the Record, from which the proceeds will go towards the cost of releasing Miles to Go. Check out the visuals to "Work Of Heart" below - which goes hard, by the way - and purchase the single on his Bandcamp, where you can also download the free Muneshine remix. Miles to Go is scheduled for release on September 7th. For any fans in Western Canada, Relic will be performing in Saskatoon on July 14th and 20th, Winnipeg on July 17th, Edmonton on July 21st, and Calgary on July 22nd. Full details can be found here.
"For The Record" is just that. Proceeds from this release will be put towards the cost of bringing you the next full length album "Miles to Go" available Sept. 7th, 2012. Please pay what you can. If you're broke (like us) enjoy the music, and please help us spread the word by passing the link to others. Thank you for your continued support, financial and otherwise. - RelicIt's been nearly a year since Relic aka REL McCoy's last release, but the emcee/producer is back with his beat tape entitled For The Record. With 19 tracks, there's plenty of beats for all tastes here, whether you want something to freestyle to or relax and kick back to. Upon first listen, my favourites are "Junction", "Zesty", "Introspec", "KastAway", "MonCher", and "Victory". Stream and download/ purchase the beat tape below.
Philadelphia rapper 5Grand recently released visuals for his latest single "2 Minute Warning". Producer Hank McCoy provides a great beat which really stands out and is full of sharp violin sounds. 5Grand delivers 48 killer bars in just two minutes and provides us with a snippet of his talent while painting a picture of his life. He is a good lyricist who is capable of of telling a story and making a great sounding track. "2 Minute Warning" will appear on his new EP titled FourthComing so we can expect some more great music from him very soon. Check out the the video below.
