One of Canada’s most venerated MCs, Saukrates, is proud to present his newest visual for the inspiring lead single, “Say I.” The Rich Kidd-produced single, features a guest verse from OB OBrien, and is from his forthcoming album, Season One. The 15-plus year rap vet is prepping the release of his new album later this month via FrostByte Media Inc.
Fans were first introduced to “Say I” when it was used as part of Nike’s Always On campaign back in October of last year. The song served as a backdrop to a day in the life of Montreal Canadiens hockey player P.K. Subban. For the song’s video, Saukrates decided to stick with the pucks, as its set in a hockey rink with an assortment of young, fired-up “grown-men” ready to “break legs and slit throats” of anyone who stands in their way (commanded of them in Coach OB OBrien’s gripping speech). Producer Rich Kidd draped the track with inspirational keys and an infectious drum break that inspired director Figz! of Figvrati Films to embody the overall “You Can Do It” attitude in the single’s video. From the first words of the hook, “I can do what I wanna,” to the song’s end, “Say I” is a Simon Says mantra for listeners to believe in themselves.

“I think those of us who decide to devote our lives to the creative process sometimes feel burdened. We give up often and then realize we can’t really do much else with such focus and intensity. It’s stuck on us, in that sense its more of a calling than a job. At times we try to create something worth sharing but mostly it’s about the process and the fear of going insane if we don’t engage it. So my good friend Armand Kajangwe made this video for “Burden Of Love” and I think he nailed that emotion maybe because he’s also familiar with it.”

The video was Directed by Armand Kajangwe, and the track comes from the “Outside The Barcode” EP, which is available for free download via Kae Sun’s website, kaesunmusic.com.
On May 29th, Los Angeles native and Brick Squad Monopoly rapper YG Hootie is teaming up with Konvict Muzik’s own west coast representative, Bay Area rapper A-Wax, and together, the pair will release their collaborative album, Interstate Trafficking, via BSM/Illburn Records. Earlier that same month, the two rappers will release a Trap-A-Holics mixtape, and today, A-Wax is giving fans a loosie solo track titled “#Rapperblood.”
The track, produced by Nonstop The Hitman, is driven forward by slinky synths, 808 snares, and menacing low-end, and for his part, A-Wax compliments the beat with plenty of slick wordplay. Opening the track with the song’s chorus, A-Wax raps, “What’s up with these rappers, blood?/I’m not just some rapper, blood/ Looking at my Louis shoe, wipping off some rapper’s blood,” while later he spits equally entertaining bars like, “I fuck with the dealers/ Not so much the rappers/ Big old 18-wheeler/ Containing that package.”

First of all I want to say it was a blessing to receive this beat from K.E on the track. It really touched me in a way that I could express my emotions on it. This song was from the heart and I wrote it during the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. I was just thinking about some of the things that’s going on in this world and thought “you know everyone goes through different things but at the end of the day everything is going to be alright if you keep your head up and keep faith, everyone eventually gets to where they want to get in time if they don’t give up or self destruct.” Since I’m 1/3 of the Toke team “Take On Knowledge Everyday” I really want to spread the knowledge I’ve been blessed with, with the world.

London’s the town, Love is the theme. Mysterious masked London trio The Str8jackets have somehow coaxed sultry Sam Obernik (of It Just Won’t Do notoriety) back into the studio and the result is the life-giving Love and Oxygen, an upfront, unashamed song with Sam leading from the front with a vocal that we can confidently call her best yet. If the ‘Jackets main mix – a pretty thing centred on a nifty semi-acoutic guitar hook – floats like a butterfly, drum & bass fixer Xilent is here with the sting in the shape of an equally melodic but rather more frantic d&b/dubstep crossover remix. And breathe.
