My man from across the Canadian border DRK just put out this nice piece of heat with DNTE…When it comes to beats DRK always impressed me with his extra rugged, sinister approach to rocking…Never heard of DNTE before, but if this is any indication of what type of chemistry they are dealing with- I got my eyes peeled…

Former DOWN TO ERF alumni, MATHEMATIK is back on the set for more 2020 action…This time around he links with Debonair P for solid results..
“One of the finest artists to emerge from the 90s independent hip hop scene, Toronto MC Mathematik stood out from the crowd with his reflective and intricately crafted wordplay on classic releases such as the Down To Erf EP and Ecology LP. This tradition continues on the H2O EP, featuring Math’s trademark meticulous flow over ethereal production from Debonair P.
Also available on vinyl from quality retailers!
released May 28, 2020
Written by Mathematik
Produced and Mixed by Debonair P
Mastered by Adam Boose”
When it comes to that off kilter, left field, abstract pattern shit- JIHAD’s name should pop up in the conversation..From the late 90’s up until now he has stuck to his guns without conforming, switching up, or even halfway flipping his script..Even though I prefer his THIRD SIGHT material over his recent solo stuff- he still laces his projects with enough creativity and originality to hold my attention..
This has to be the most extensive interview I have ever heard with LIL DAP..Props to those DROP A GEM dudes for keeping it popping in 2020..
You know what cracks me up ?
When dudes try to act like Jordan’s, Huarache’s, AF1’s, and a few other select Nike models are the only ones worth checking for…Even when it comes to Max’s you usually hear about 1’s, 95’s, and 97’s, but truth be told the 270 BOWFIN joints have some of the illest color schemes I have seen in a minute….
PLUS THEY ARE ACG TYPE RUGGED!!!!
BUCKWILD has been releasing a slew of music recently…Be on the lookout for the FULLY LOADED album on July 1st- the first leak features RIM & ROME STREETZ..
If your mix has “2 Of The Best” by BLACK I & SWIFF on it – you already get my full undivided attention…This strictly Canadian session by the CSA CREW should help boost up your Monday morale..

Nooferz · Naaah, Dis Tape Can’t Be From Canada?!! – C Side
It seems like every other week the trickery and fuckery reach astronomical levels…People are in a constant state of paranoia, depression, anger, fear and all types of awkwardness that I have yet to see in my lifetime thus far…America is literally burning..London is burning..
I recently expressed some of my frustrations regarding the “system” to my very wise mother who endured heavy turbulence during the civil rights era….She simply replied, “What are you going to do about it”?….
She was right…Fuck the talking, fuck the griping and debating with motherfuckers…Simply, “What are you going to do about it”?
With so much fluff and trendy nonsense going on in the so-called sneaker game- it’s nice to go back to the original recipe on some back to the future type shit..I’m talking Ellesse, Fila, Lotto, Asics, Le Coq Sportif, Travel Fox, and motherfucking Diadora….For instance these V7000xSlam Jamx Ronnie Sieg’s are straight up dangerous on many levels..
Go track down a pair and tell them the grimy kid from HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD sent you jack !!!!!
NOWAAH has been around for a minute, but he really came across my radar when my brother ARCHITECT collaborated with him on the TRIFE LIFE MATHEMATICS album…This recent project he did with DEWER is on the dusted, bugged out, unorthodox tip that made my ears perk up…
To this day it trips me out when I hear my music on peoples playlist, mixes, etc..When it happens I instantly flashback to when I first started my musical journey as a kid and what I wanted to accomplish for myself..It’s been a interesting journey and I still have a tremendous amount of love and respect for the craft..Unlike many of my contemporaries I feel like I am getting better and more dangerous with time – I still push myself, and remain a student that is eager to learn more while improving on my current skill set…I think you can hear it in the music, if you listen carefully..
I’m thankful and grateful for any support I have received thus far, it truly motivates me to stay focused…Recently “Snake Mode” was featured on the “HEAT” mixtape by SURGE (Hands of Time)…Big up SURGE it is appreciated- if you haven’t heard the mix yet, give it a listen troopers…

It’s obvious things have been a little slow on the BATTLEFIELD compared to my usual output…But don’t trip family I’m about to return to my usual programming and keep the pressure extra heavy over here…
We are currently dealing with a so-called pandemic and many people are acting like complete zombies…I’m not going to unveil my feelings on this topic- it seems like everybody and their mother are a doctor/psychologist/no it all/nurse/teacher/prophet/private investigator/Noble peace prize winner/ ultimate conspiracy theorist….
Truth be told, I’m just going to be quiet regarding these matters and strive to accomplish my goals…All these opinions and mass information vessels could easily distract you if you let it…FUCK THAT- live your life and socially distance yourself from suckers and bad minded people (YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING THAT A LONG TIME AGO-HA)..
To help motivate you and give you strength- do yourself a favor and fully absorb the “GAS MASK BEATS” instrumentals VENDETTA VINYL
