Slim Burna drops the third offering from his highly anticipated
mixtape with help from Ruudboiz member Pi Piego. The skillfully
rendered song which is also aptly named, just makes ‘chiefing’ habits
seem fun. May not be appropriate for younger audiences, due to the
explicitness of its lyrical content, but it still stands out as being
both attention-getting and equally a good dancefloor material.
Claro sees Slim Burna and his musical accomplice come out as straight
stoners expressing their love for the magic herb. Not only does the
backdrop possess both mainstream and street-based themes but the
unique musical chemistry between the two is remarkably evident, and
also illuminating about the subject, idea or concept.

On the heels of the release of Cityreal’s latest album, Good Morning Blues, a collaboration with Vancouver blues artist, Wes Mackey; Cityreal (aka Remi Huot) took a trip to the very cool and bleak landscape of the Oil Sands in Fort McMurray to complete shooting on his new video for the track, “Nightlife.” Check it out here.
Says Cityreal, “‘Nightlife’ is a track about how our bad habits can negatively affect our lives in the long term. In the past year, I was very much drawn into the controversy over the proposal of the Northern Gateway pipeline, which would be an environmental nightmare in my home province of BC. This proposal would see massive oil tankers and destructive pipelines pass through BC from the Alberta Oil Sands. The idea that Canada is allowing, and in fact encouraging the rapid development of such a harmful energy resource, at such a risk, was something I wanted to address through this video.”
Cityreal also enlisted the help of Greenpeace, who generously provided unlimited access of helicopter footage from the b-roll of the Greenpeace documentary shot by renowned Canadian film maker Peter Mettler.
“Being in Fort McMurray was an extremely eye-opening experience. Several of the individual Oil Sands facilities, with the mines and the toxic lakes that surround them, are bigger than the actual town itself; a town of about 60,000 people. Massive smoke stacks creating actual clouds, huge flames shooting up from never ending refineries, and cannons going off to prevent birds from landing in toxic lakes – it kind of felt like I was on bad drugs at times when we were up there.”
Exclusive digital pre-release of the “Jai Paul – Jasmine (Jonathan Lee Remix)” which features the remix of Jai Paul’s ever successful sophomore effort “Jasmine” molding the song into a soulful Hiphop infused ballad illustrating the plight of jaded beauty.
