Toronto’s Keys N Krates are burnin’ up right now, having been added to some of the biggest parties in North America this spring/summer.

Miami’s SpaceGhostPurrp has been promoting his debut for 4AD, Mysterious Phonk: Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp, for almost a year now, and finally gets to a video for “Bringing Da Phonk.” Not one for big-scale, vivid clips, SGP opts for the trendy, VHS tape-damaged look, depicting his life with the Raider Klan and the ladies in a [...]

Ricky Rozay faced a pretty massive backlash when his verse on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” celebrated rape culture. Some might say he’s learned his lesson or paid the price, after protests to boycott his shows and Reebok dropped him from a $5 million endorsement deal.

Frank Ocean’s stock is so high that even a video of tour footage is still an exciting thing for us to see. And that’s what he’s given us for “Lost,” a compilation of clips mirroring the lyrics from the song, but also documenting his new found jet-setting lifestyle. The simplicity works with shots from various [...]

“Whilst everyone’s making trap, we’re just making something else.” That’s how Lunice hears what he and Hudson Mohawke do as TNGHT. The duo have followed up their debut self-titled 12″ with a brand new single called “Acrylics,” which teases the senses with a soothing music box and then drops a massive trap beat and zapping [...]

Gun violence used to be such an American thing, but over the past few years, it’s unfortunately become a Toronto thing. Though you wouldn’t really expect Snoop Dogg to be the first rapper penning an anti-gun anthem, he seems to have really mellowed with age, especially under his new reggae moniker, Snoop Lion.
