[News] Recent Charges Imposed by Canadian Government Threaten Concert Scene

Under The Influence Tour 2013 in Toronto This sucks. The Canadian Government passed regulations nearly a month ago that pose a potentially serious problem to any thought of a healthy Canadian concert scene. Under the new rules, international touring artists have to pay nearly triple what they used to in order to perform in Canada. Applications used to be $150 per artist; now, they're $425. Imagine a group of four performers looking to play shows in Canada: under the old rules, they'd be paying $600 for the four of them to cross the border for a show; as of July 31st, they now have to shell out $1,700. It doesn't take much math savvy to realize that this could really negatively impact any hip-hop acts that aren't signed to a major label - which is to say, a lot of hip-hop acts. What ripple effect does this have? Artists asking promoters for more money up front? Promoters charging higher ticket prices? Suddenly, shows that could have turned a decent profit before may not be worth the risk. The whole culture suffers as a result - that's that ish I don't like. So, how can we fix this? Well, start by reading the petition after the jump.

[Audio] Big K.R.I.T. ft. Future – Just Last Week (Prod: Big K.R.I.T.)

Big K.R.I.T. collaborates with Future for his latest single "Just Last Week". Future provides a catchy hook as we would expect and Big K.R.I.T gives us another great self-produced track. He usually produces his own albums and mixtapes so this song also has the K.R.I.T. sound we've come to love. He has also collaborated with many other big artists so this collaboration with Future also comes as no surprise. Check out the track below and take a listen to Big K.R.I.T's instrumentals for 4evaNaDay released earlier this month.
