The twelfth and final 2017 single, "Net Neutral", is once again helmed by Notion. Soulful harmonies provide the backdrop for Cee's timely bars, touching on the recent Net Neutrality repeal, social media addiction and cryptocurrency, all contributing to an appropriate year-end wrap up.

I've been following these guys since I sparked up watching them open for Damian Marley in April 2006. Their debut 'Stand Up' was dope, and I've seen this band grow and travel around the world to become on the verge of making some serious noise with their latest LP 'Worldwize'. Check their latest two songs, both are fucking brilliant. Can't wait to see em on Saturday avo here at Canadian Music Week, and hopefully again next week in Texas.
I'm constantly discovering new music lately, and one of the genres I'm discovering the fastest is hardcore/metalcore. I'm a huge fan of this stuff, and especially these fellas from Byron Bay, Parkway Drive. I'm actually off to see them tonight, so there's no better time to post a few of their videos. The show is sold out already, and a couple thousand person venue, so it should be dope.
So I'm effing with hardcore on a level now. Caught Thursday and Underoath on the weekend, bloody fantastic. Parkway Drive next week and Deftones with Dillinger Escape Plan in May. Win. Check out some of my favourite tunes below. Boss.
Yeah, yeah, I know. I'm stupid late on this. For those who ain't already know, Shad is a Toronto born MC, now living and studying in BC. His latest album, TSOL, is nothing short of incredible. Check the videos below, as well as a 6 plus minute joint of dude just spitting bars.
Mr. Boykins III is quite possibly my favourite artist right now. I caught dude rocking with Foreign Exchange at their CMJ showcase in New York a couple months back, and I immediately copped his album 'The Beauty Created' and subsequently became one of his biggest fans. Check the videos from the singles off the album. Incredible soul music, y'all.
The big homie Copywrite's latest LP, 'The Life And Times Of Peter Nelson', is a banger and here are the three visuals for the singles - 'Don't Kill Me', 'Tic Toc' and 'Shotgun'. Cop the album off iTunes!
Aight, so a nice lil bit of controversy for ya.
Check the above video for 'Talkin' 2 Myself' from Cinque, with Kobe on the hook. Sound familiar? A certain Mr Mathers used the exact same beat and hook for his most recent album, 'Recovery' (my fave song on the album). How did this happen? I have zero concrete facts, but as we all know, YouTube comments might as well be bond, so check the details...
"No money was ever asked from Cinque for the track, so that is not an issue. A batch of beats were sent to Cinque from Khalil through a mutual friend (No ID) as a favor and Cinque happened to use the track w/ no intention of marketing it or making profit from it, just to further build an online presence and work on a project. Yes Eminem paid for the rights, but that still does nothing to disprove Mr.Mathers used a recycled track that has been floating around for almost 2 yrs, lame."
"in Cinque's defense, he did not steal. The producer (Khalil) provided the track to Cinque himself a full year in advance through mutual connects in the industry. It would be the producer's and label's fault for not fact checking and looking into the record which was out on Youtube since April 5th, 2009."
"Everybody that knows nothing about the industry and how shit works, shut your cock holsters cause you're looking real stupid rite now!!! As far as legally, what can a lawyer prove about this situation except the facts that are already known? Cinque aquired the beat 1yr to 1 1/2yrs ago thru some of the peeps he knows in the industry, recorded a song and then shot a video!!! One year or so later, the same instrumental was sold to Eminem!!! How is that Cinques fault? Everybody S.T.F.U."

DJ Grain: What’s your name?
Sashia: Sashia Summmers.
DJ Grain: Where are you from?
Sashia: Montego Bay, Jamaica but I reside in London, UK.
DJ Grain: How many years have you been modeling?
Sashia: Years (LOL). A relatively short period.
DJ Grain:What are the misconceptions people commonly have about models that are untrue?
Sashia:That we’re all airheads or shallow, and rely purely on our looks, we’re all the same in real life as we are on print or in videos (they don't understand that in front of the camera we’re in character mode), and that we are all available.
DJ Grain: What shows, videos, magazines, etc. have you been featured in?
Sashia: Tinchy Stryder's 'Rollin' and Millionaire Boyz’ 'She's a Hustler'.
DJ Grain: What photographers have you worked with?
Sashia: Kosher of Femelle Studios, Vic Morley, Daniel Rachev of Juice Magazine UK and Sean Hickey.
DJ Grain: What photographers would you like to work with?
Sashia: David LaChapelle, Matthew Jordan Smith, Frizzy Q, Maya Guez, Marques Klinko... the list is endless.
DJ Grain: Can you describe the grind of a model trying to break into the industry?
Sashia: HARD, NON-STOP HUSTLE. Continuous networking and trying to connect with the right people in the right places. Swimming through the smoke-screens and mirror operations of all these fraudulent so-called agents, managers and artists that want to feature but for no pay. It’s important to build your brand and let people know that you’re out there, so initially you have to do a lot of free jobs to build a profile and then you must start to withdraw and only work on select high profile projects. At the same time you’ve still got to continue to direct traffic to your own website. That’s the hustle.
DJ Grain: Any words for the ladies out there that have aspirations of entering the modeling industry?
Sashia: Yeah, sure. I’m always happy to offer help or advice. Stay focused, be original and have a clear understanding and knowledge of what kind of modeling it is you want to get involved in. It’s very easy to get exploited in this industry and get side-tracked from your original goal. Do your research and get an insight on what other models have to share. Also I think its very important to invest in yourself in all areas of self nails, hair, skin, physique and attire. You need to be on point in these areas so take time on your appearance and how you conduct yourself. Some of these things may cost money but remember you have to spend money to make money.
DJ Grain: How can people contact you for booking?
Sashia: Hit me on my emails: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. WEBSITE COMING SOON
