I don’t cover that much hip-hop but I was like why not this one because Myke Bogan is on this label called Eyrst Records.
That labels happen to have The Last Artful, Dodgr who I caught at Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle.
Myke’s upcoming album Pool Party drops on August 18th.
Have a listen to the song Gravy which features Michael Christmas
Portland’s hip hop and r&b scene has really come into the public eye within the last year, and Eyrst Records, an imprint that was started by producer Neill Von Tally and former Portland Blazers player Martell Webster, is in the middle of that scene. The label’s next release is LA-by-way-of-Portland MC, Myke Bogan. Past Bogan releases hit the number 14 spot on iTunes Top 100 and the Bandcamp hip-hop charts the day it dropped, and he’s been covered by AllHipHop.com, The Source, Flood, Okayplayer.com, Hip Hop Weekly and even XXL’s The Break. He has successfully set the precedent for his stylized visuals and dynamic delivery, coupled with a charismatic and fiery persona, earning him more than 800,000 video views and landing on the same stage as hip-hop legends Snoop Dogg, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and more. Myke played a bunch of festivals this summer and fall tour plans are firming up.
2016 is coming to an end and has come to this!
There were alot of great Canadian albums that came out this year.
So I am going to do the Top 50 Canadian albums of 2016 by individual post.
While the Top 16 will be revealed on my radio show.
Starting with #50 which is Drake‘s Views
You’re asking why #50 for an album that spent the most weeks at #1?
It’s going to be on everyone’s Top 10 list and I want to focus on lesser known while moving up the list.
The only redeeming tracks in the album are Feels No Way and Too Good.
While there are the bangers One Dance and of course Hotline Bling.
Busty and the Bass have announced a string of Canadian headlining dates kicking off in Kingston on October 19. The Montreal-based electrosoul hip-hop collective have had an incredibly busy summer which saw them sell out their first-ever European headline show in London, UK and performing a free outdoor show in Paris for 10,000 people with Half Moon Run, receiving a gushing write-up in Rolling Stone France in the process. Busty and the Bass performed for a record crowd at Osheaga and performed on the main stage of Montreal’s Jazz Festival on Canada Day to an ebullient 20K+ crowd. With their newest material, Busty embraces a different timbre drawing on their hip-hop and jazz influences in order to create their own killer take on electronic-soul. Recently, the band premiered a trippy new video for their single “Miss Judge” directed by Ian Cameron (We Are Wolves, Little Scream, k-os). The track is available on the band’s new EP LIFT available now via Indica Records. Watch and share the video here. See below for a full routing of upcoming tour dates.
Don’t forget they will be in Ottawa on October 22, 2016 at Zaphod Beeblebrox.

Everyone in the blogosphere is talking about the 34:32 minute epic music video or short film of Kanye West’s Runaway.
Its like a teaser on what to expect on his upcoming album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” (Which so far has a controversial album cover).
I really like the song “All of the Lights” (featuring John Legend, The-Dream, Ryan Leslie, Tony Williams, Charlie Wilson, Elly Jackson, Alicia Keys, Fergie, Kid Cudi, Rihanna & Elton John).
I also like Runaway with the part of the ballerinas dancing.
Its a really long music video to take in a ADA society.
The colors are nice and vibrant.
Selita Ebanks outfit is very eye catching.
Here is the short version for just the Runaway music video.
