I remember these dudes spamming all the blogs like 2 years ago lol. A dude named russ or something was sending out tons of annoying emails. But you know what, i don’t care about all that. The song is dope, beat is soulful. Peep it.

“Bugus reflects on his life and recent successes on this soulful jam. With production containing soulful sounds, Bugus applies his nonchalant flow and harmonizing talents to provide us with a great release.”

Quake Matthews f. Dylan Guthro – “Summertime Win” (Produced By Corey LeRue)

Screen Shot 2014-07-30 at 4.07.40 PM

I wrote a list for HipHopDX about the top 17 artists from Canada, not named Drake. I know Hip Hop, I live Hip Hop and i try my best to shine light on other artists besides the 10 you see on every other website daily. With that said, i knew i was going to get hit up about artists i forgot. I’m human and don’t have the time to be “hip” on every artist from every state, country or region.

Now, a lot of people hit me up with negative comments or the famous “You don’t know shit about hip hop white boy”, but a few respectful people (and artists) hit me up to build. This cat right here is one of them.

Quake Matthews sent me this new video that he just dropped today and i must say, it’s FUN!

Also, thanks for having normal twitter names that match your artist name(s). For the love of GOD, i hope other artists understand the importance of BRANDING!

Producer extraordinaire Vanderslice, has been releasing some head-nodding beats for over a minute now.

From his early work to Access Immortal to his recent compilation Everything’s Awesome or his album with AWAR, The Winning Team, one thing has remained consistent – dude sets the bar high for himself and the artists he works with, and the word “filler” just doesn’t exist.

It’s worth listening to the end to hear Vanderslice’s thoughts on the one and only J-Zone as well.
