Son Raw refuses to believe "Canadian Hip-Hop" is a thing, but regional scenes in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and beyond are producing more quality rap music than ever.
Slava P unlocked Lupe Fiasco’s Twitter account for him. Canadian-bred talent has always suffered from little brother syndrome when it comes to the USA. It’s easy to quantify success when you relate it to existing examples that have been established south of the border, but it’s also lazy. Good music should rest on its own […]

For the first time since the early aughts, the city can take pride in its Grammy winners and athletic dunk contest representatives as well as the “underground” talent that’s scattered throughout […]
