Beefwelli teams up with Frank Dukez, coming together to make something real. "For My City", an anthem created over a Vokab production representing the city. Both repping London, Beefwelli and Frank Dukez hit the studio and drop their latest single "For My City". This is one you can definitely feel! Check out the LO City Films visuals if you love the city you're from!
LaShawn Powell, also known as Elcee has released a visual for his track, "HELP", produced by TREET$. Elcee was born in Halifax but currently lives in Toronto. Elcee has done something good with his new track and video; he's purposely made "HELP" a resource to help anyone struggling with addiction and depression, especially alcoholism. Elcee candidly talks about his own experiences through his verses, and shows his fans and his listeners that it's okay to ask for help, and that getting that help will subsequently make you a stronger, wiser, and more optimistic individual. Elcee captures alcoholism perfectly; not just as sporadic event, but as a dangerous, reliable friend: "Would you help me out/Would you help me out, Mr. glass bottle?" I commend Elcee on this track and visual. He's got his head on straight, making honest music that matters, whether it be a track like "HELP" or a homage to Toronto in "For My City". I can't wait for what's next.
Here's a Toronto anthem by Elcee, who proudly lets us know that he's got his city's back. While not born in Toronto, Elcee was raised there (he was born in Nova Scotia), and as a thanks he represents Toronto in this new track. "For My City" is slow-paced and laid-back, the kind of track you'd lift your lighter for, or just nod in appreciation. Elcee dismisses notions that Canadian rappers are less successful than Americans, which is an issue I'm happy he brings up. His patriotism and love of his city shines through the track, and I especially love his line: "I got the heart of a Leo/So when they ask me my status/Scotia born, Ontario raised/B**** check the atlas". Definitely bringing Toronto and Ontario up on the map for people who know nothing about them (I still don't get how people don't know about Toronto!) Elcee releases his new project, LeoSoul on July 23rd.
