Last week Supreme released two critically-acclaimed singles to stave off hungry fans and haters alike. First was the single that is gaining him and fellow Spreez Music Group/J-Nice Records artist rapper FAME heavy respect amongst the hip hop heads in Toronto and internationally. On the apt-named single, TDOT ANTHEM, Supreme goes toe-to-toe with one of the livest up and coming rappers out of Toronto (download Fame’s latest mixtape free from http://www.famenickles.com). Fame’s powerful but raspy voice, gritty but witty wordplay and genuine love for his city on TDOT ANTHEM finds him dropping such quotable lines as the sure to be classic “It’s Tdot, maybe you should think a bit smarter / coz round here shit talkers we treat em like Vince Carter / I rep for my city / my conviction convince martyrs…”
The bass-heavy, melodic instrumental to TDOT ANTHEM, produced by local beat maker, Shida Mill Records, seems to have been perfectly made for the dancehall flow that Supreme laces the hook and verse with! This song is sure to have you nodding your head, every time. The Supreme-Fame tandem is executed to an effect that is reminiscent of the Mad Lion-KRS-1 New York days. It almost makes you feel that nostalgic feeling that hip hop made you feel back then. Don’t get it twisted though, this song is for Toronto Canada and if you don’t believe me then check a sample of Supreme’s verse, “Say we lock from 404 to 403 / to 401 down to DVP / dem a watch watch watch / and pree pree pree / like CP24 or CTV…“. Now playing on Toronto’s urban FM radio stations, you can Download and Share: TDOT ANTHEM from http://www.nunorthmusic.com/music/5307-Supreme_and_Fame-Tdot_Anthem-produced_by_ShidaMill-(Radio-Edit).mp3
Second, is a major dancehall collaboration with one of Jamaica’s rising stars DARRIO of SubKonshus Music (Konshen’s label). Passing up on the easy formula of singing about girls and money, the two lyrical giants decided to use their rising star power to motivate others with the standout single titled GO FI DI PAPER. Encouraging people to do what the title says, this well received single was produced by Saint Vincent’s hottest production team, Evolution Productions. Proof of the success of this collaboration is in how upon release this hustler’s anthem went straight to airplay on Jamaica’s biggest radio station IRIE FM. *Download and Share GO FI DI PAPER fromhttp://www.box.com/s/45c15bf219565e1e9636
GO FI DI PAPER is one of the singles off the free EP release [SOLID & SIMPLE: THE EP] of five singles off the summer release SOLID & SIMPLE: THE ALBUM.
After many years of being overlooked Toronto music is on the rise. Tdot stand Up!!!
