Brother Ali: All The Beauty In This Whole World out today!


Brother Ali's new album is out today!  Rhymesayers released the record All The Beauty In This Whole World, and the tour in support of the record is underway.  We can't get enough of the video for "Own Light", and to add to the excitement of the album's release we're looking forward to the June 7th stop at Adelaide Hall in Toronto.  Few can match the insight and intensity of Brother Ali, in the booth and on stage.  Click here to get the album and here to get tickets to see him live June 7th at Adelaide Hall.


VIDEO: Migos "Slippery" ft. Gucci Mane

"Slippery" comes from Migos' era defining, expectation defying album Culture.  For some the moment came when Donald Glover thanked them in winning a Golden Globe Award for his show Atlanta.  For many the rise to prominence started long ago.  "Slippery" might seem like a garden variety rap video, but considering the journey the Atlanta trio have been on it's a perfectly timed celebration with another hometown rap legend: Gucci Mane. 

The celebration continues with the ultimate summer rap tour, Migos will be landing in Toronto at the Budweiser Stage.  One of the biggest venues in the city will be hosting one of the most vital new acts in music, along with favourites like Future, Tory Lanez, Zoey Dollaz and A$AP Ferg.  Culture is available here, and tickets for May 16th in Toronto are available here.  Check out the video for "Slippery" below.


Goapele Is On Tour! New Track "Power"!

We discovered Goapele's music more than ten years ago, around the release of her album Even Closer and her collaborations with MC's like Aceyalone and Hieroglyphics on the song "Make Your Move".  She followed Even Closer with Change It All and then more recently Break Of Dawn and Strong As Glass.  This spring she's on tour throughout the United States with a stop in Toronto on Monday at the Velvet Underground.  Take a listen to a few favourites below and see her live!

Tickets here.

Coming Soon: Kaiydo at the Velvet Underground

Kaiydo is definitely one of the most buzzworthy artists following SXSW.  The 19 year old made waves with the release of his track 'Fruit Punch', and it continues to rack up a seemingly endless amount of plays.  On top of the single he's got an independently released album coming later this year.  For now he's planning to embark on tour from Washington DC to Hollywood, California in April.  That tour includes a stop in Toronto on April 22nd at the Velvet Underground.
