What do you get when you combine Ghettosocks, Muneshine, D-Sisive, Timbuktu, and Bix? Well, you get Wolves, the latest collaboration between these well-acquainted emcees. We first saw them come together in spring of 2011 on "Air Pump & A Mushroom Cut". On "Kings", the party gets even bigger, as they bring Maestro and Adam Bomb into the fold. The track comes off the Wolves' self-titled debut album, produced by Bix. Check out the visuals to "Kings" below, directed by Davin Black.
Oh hi there. I've had D-Sisive on my mind a tinch today for two reasons: First, a huge poster of him in a mask scared the shit out of me when I randomly walked out of a McGill bathroom, and second, I've been pondering a certain Now Magazine article that dragged Derek into the wrong storm of their ongoing fiasco with the fat assed Rob Ford. For those who visit TCUS from outside the region of our home base, I'll indulge that Ford is known to many as the seriously pig-headed mayor of Toronto who perplexingly managed to win the vote this past election. Ford recently ordered that Now cease publication and remove all current issues of the mag from stands across Toronto after he laid eyes on a fine piece of Photoshop artwork that adorns the most recent cover. It was sure-shot button toucher. We all know Mr. Ford is pretty sensitive about his weight. In the midst of this flurry, one of Now's writers decided to write an article on some of the more recent portrayals of Rob in music, art, and the public sphere, but unfortunately misunderstood Derek to be a supporter of Rob Ford's. Derek understandably wasn't to happy about that fuck-up given he's been meticulously stoking a war with the dude over the past couple months. But since the article was published, its safe to assume Now has finally listened to the song since they tweeted that D-Sisive's "Rob Ford" is indeed, a "diss track." The song may not be the most straight forward nailer in the coffin, but the bit about "selling your soul to the devil" is more than a hint, no? In all seriousness, check out the controversy and lay down your two cents on a message board over there. I'll admit Ford's antics make for pretty amazing watercooler banter. But it's not so funny anymore when the laughing dies down and you remember that this off-the-handle is actually the acting power and representation of CN city. What the fuck! WOLVES, the collaboration between D-Sisive, Muneshine, Bix, Ghettosocks and Timbuktu has nothing to do with the above shenanigans, but I'm a blogger, and that means I do what I want and you get what you get.
