Ottawa emcee IPKISS has just released his latest mixtape, Crucial. This is a joint that you need to be bumping all summer long. With creative word play, hot instrumentals and bars for days, IPKISS is one of the hidden gems in the hip hop game, and it would be a shame to allow this project to go unnoticed. The beat selection for this mixtape is on point. IPKISS adapts his style to suit some of the more memorable beats from the 90’s as well as current bangers circulating the air waves. Fans of old school classics will dig track three, “Hook UP” as IPKISS flips the 1997 Bad Boy hit “All About The Benjamin’s” with his own trade mark flow. Fans of the new school will also appreciate “Picture Me” where IPKISS delivers a new take on The Throne’s “Otis” beat. IPKISS’s delivery grabs your attention instantly. On any given instrumental, it’s a sure bet that the man is going to kill it. This seven track mix tape features guest appearances from Tina Weeds and Kaleb Simmonds. Give the Crucial mixtape a listen, and let us know what you think of IPKISS.
