Artbeat Montreal & Istolethesoul Present: B.A.S.S.

Expansion is a motherfucker: We all want it and the associated growing pains are inevitable. The fruits of that labour get reaped only by the undeterred, the diligent… The SKRONG. Over the last year or so, I’ve been hard at work with the ABMTL team, flexing our collective muscle in …

Future Classic: Boogat “Eres Hecha Para Mí”

I never bought into “post-racial” as an idea. What we are still goes a long way to explain who we are, regardless of what the politically-correct try to hammer down our collective ear. Boogat is a prime example of how one is forged in this brave new world: a Quebec …

When I think of my people, I can’t help but feel that swell in my chest that only comes with blatant Latin Pride. I made a point of bringing that flavor over to MIMS in my articles on Crema Púrpura, Willie Colón and Johnny Illdigger’s Argentina mix. Latin music has …

Memories don’t leave like people do. No matter where Yassin Alsalman (better known as The Narcicyst) winds up, he’ll forever remain Montreal’s favorite son when it comes to this rap shit. The song and video to Falling Down serve as an examination of friendship and how that bond is often …

Tommy Kruise “Memphis Confidential Vol. 1″

The most pleasant surprises always come out of left field. When I first met Tommy Kruise, I knew him on a street level as a degenerate skater and All-City Chilleur. Never could I have imagined he’d be at the forefront of a movement in the musical realm. Let it be …

Forgotten Treasure: Cru “Ooh Wee” (1999)

This post is really about three things: The year 1999 in rap music, Cru and their song Ooh Wee but more than anything, I wanted to share my thoughts on a very important man in the realm of rap music: the late, great Chris Lighty, who passed away under dubious …
