This is the latest video off the back of the hi Guys Club420 mixtape. ’24’s’ hits hard but we’re also really impressed with the video production and concept from VAR EZ (twitter.com/thisisvarez). hi Guys are made up of Bronx duo Dex McCallister and Cloud 9, you can catch up with their work so far here: https://soundcloud.com/higuysrock and pretty much any other social channel @higuysrock.
We usually only feature 100% original tracks but we’ve made an exception for this one as we think you will dig this track and mixtape. The track featured below is ‘I Told Ya’ll‘ and it comes from SawBuck outta Ottawa. Yup, a damn Canadian doing hip-hop, who thought that one up? The track is off SawBucks latest mixtape ‘PREMOnition‘ (download here) a compilation of classic DJ Premier beats with Buck and friends on rhyming duty. If you are gonna use other artist’s beats for your mixtapes, this is an example of how it should be done, offering something fresh and interesting and respecting the original craft.

A little wind down time now as we get to Vanessa Elisha with ‘Blur‘. You gotta be able to appreciate a good slow jam and this is kind of reminiscent of a 3LW album track. It might not be to the taste of all our readers, but you take this track and give it to a Cassie and you’ve got a hit song and that’s why it gets featured status. It’s the first ever release from the Australian singer songwriter and her debut EP is set for release next month. Connect with Vanessa here on Twitter.
