Established last year, Great Minds is a collective growing within the GTA. Starting the New Year off right, Great Minds members King Menny releases the video for his new track titled "Arctic Breeze" featuring another GM member, King Kong. Watch the Kaiser Khan & Brian Betty directed visuals below.
Trends. Let's see. We chose two tracks about cars, one about a bug. Six songs with Canadian production credits, eight with Canadian voices. Some are billboard charting million dollar commercial songs, others are basement bangers. Some beats are freshly composed productions, some are sample-based. One is about making a comeback, two are about coming up. One is about sports. Two are about inner demons. One is about embracing inner demons. And last, there are two songs written about girls, and two written by girls.I'm no mathematician, but these numbers add up far beyond the twenty tracks we've selected below, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
We could have included a much larger list. Honorable mentions go to Yelawolf and Big K.R.I.T. with "Hometown Hero", or Yela's striking acoustic rendition of "Pop the Trunk." Or Wiz Khalifa's hazy and synthed out rhymes and giggles in "Up" or "Mezmorized", each user-designed soundtracks for laxing back and toking on a dub. Or hauling on a bong. Notable for their good music grind, is Kanye West, Big K.R.I.T. and Wiz Khalifa, who each have more than five tracks to their names that could have easily filled this list (look to the Favorite Albums list for further recognition there). But a playlist (and a year-end round up) simply isn't one without variety nor scope, and we had plenty to choose from in 2010.
