'Pride On My Cufflinks' is a milestone in the now 30 year old MC's career. The EP showcases both Notion's lyrical prowess and his production skills, all the while soaking up his rollercoaster ride experience of leaving his life in Australia and moving to Canada to pursue his music. The often dark yet sparse soundscapes make way for his potent, thought provoking narratives, garnished with equal parts optimism and concern for the future. Production comes courtesy of the USA's Remot (Kidz In The Hall, K-Os), Hungary's Diaz & Sima, Sydney's P.R and of course, Notion handles the vast majority of the work. The guestlist is as international as Notion himself; Ohio's Copywrite, Southern California's Gravity Christ, Australia's NeeQ, Toronto's iLLvibe and B3auu, the legendary DJ Grouch, and Notion's older brother Cee. This project is the perfect appetizer before Notion drops his debut LP, 'Heart On My Sleeve Music', in summer 2014.

The homie Sima, a producer I manage out of Hungary, now has two beats out in his native land that have video clips. Fucking respect.
This joint is from Back, called 'Altató' (which means 'sleeping pills'), and it's a banger. Wish I knew what he was saying but the language sounds amazing over Sima's dope production. Certified banger.
So I have no idea what these cats are saying either, but this is produced by my homie Sima out of Hungary, and the beat is sick. Sima tells me that this joint is getting play on the music video channels and radio in his native land, which is great news. Check it out for the beat, if nothing else. Oh and if you're feeling it, get at me for production :)
