Since it’s humble beginnings back in 2007, The Come Up Show has been the focal point for the London Hip Hop scene. The initial time slot for our show was aired between 2:00am- 6:00am. Through pure determination and a love for the music, The Come Up Show moved through the ranks in it’s home town of London gaining notoriety, and has now become one of the most well renown programs in Canadian Hip Hop. This past Saturday, fans, team members and artists made their way to Hideaway Records and Bar to celebrate the 7th year anniversary of CHRW’s The Come Up Show. Peep the full article to see the video, photos, and the full review!
Holding fans over over until the release of his forthcoming album Voice Of The Misfits, Moka Only gives out a sweet 16 track mixtape produced, written and performed by himself titled Doctor Do Much that you can chill out to all day long. Every time Moka Only comes out with a new project (which is pretty often), I always have it on repeat for quite sometime because it fits any type of mood your in. To pin point stand out tracks on Doctor Do Much would be impossible because because every single one is dope! As always when it comes to something Moka Only drops. Hit the link underneath to stream/download the mixtape and check out a quote from his biography.

On April 5th, Ottawa emcee DL Incognito released his fifth highly anticipated album titled Someday is Less Than a Second Away. Following up with his first visual from the album, DL released a video for "Super" two days ago directed by Blake R. McRitchie. Filmed during a concert to promote his new project, you are taken on a journey with DL Incognito as he enters the venue, gives an outstanding performance and socializes with those who came out to support him on this special occasion. Take in DL's new video for "Super" and see if you can name all the cameos in the comments section.
It's that time of year, CHRISTMAS!!! We all know music can influence our emotions, so what better way to get in the mood with some good Christmas music? I'm not talking about the Christmas music you hear in department stores and commercial radio stations. No disrespect to classics like "Christmas in Hollis" by Run DMC but I'm always looking for new Christmas music to play during the holiday season. I just discovered Moka Only's Xmas album series last year but he has been doing it since 2008. You better believe you can hear this album on The Come Up Show in the next few weeks. Preview the full album and purchase Moka Only's Martian Xmas on Bandcamp.
