Notion has come a long way since his debut EP "Pride On My Cufflinks" back in 2013.

The Australian born, Toronto based MC, producer and engineer has been practically living in the studio, putting his plethora of skills to work on releases for his label The Movement Fam along with a constant string of clients across the globe.

His main focus over the past couple of years has been his long-awaited debut LP "Heart On My Sleeve", a well-crafted follow-up to his EP both in name and sound.

Initially released in late 2015 as a teaser, lead single, "Holdin' Hands" grabs you as soon as the snare hits with its heart-wrenching sample and Notion's personal, introspective lyrics where he tracks his musical journey and professes his gratitude for his fam and his supporters. Crafted by production team DiazSima based out of Budapest, Hungary, the slick video - expertly shot + chopped by King Richard and tirelessly directed + produced by Andrew Cameron - sees Notion deliver his passionate lyrics alongside his brother Cee with support from the 701 Squad b-boy crew.

"Heart On My Sleeve" is slated for Q2 2017, and features production from Remot, KidEight, Durban Poison and Clarity with the vast majority coming from Notion himself. With heavyweight guests Skyzoo, Canadian Hip Hop pioneer Maestro Fresh Wes, Ghettosocks, D-Shade, Cee and Jonathan Emile, the LP will most certainly cement Notion as a mainstay in the North American Hip Hop landscape.

"Holdin' Hands" is exclusively premiered worldwide via Exclaim!
