MCYYZ VII

The trees burn day and night, but their leaves of gold fail to light up the sky. The cold rain warns of colder waters to come. The children of the night wake up earlier every day, and their music strums the bass with angry fingers. Toronto rises in the Fall, time to get to this week’s top picks.

{::}ARTIST{::}

There is no question that Toronto is a dominant presence in hip-hop, both in-front-of the mic and behind the 1’s and 2’s. Producers such as Boi 1da and Noah 40 Shebib are amongst the most recognized and sought after music makers in rap music today. Enter new kid on the block Orville McWhinney AKA MegaMan who jumped onto the scene in August with a certified classic. Lil Wayne chose one of his arrangements for Tha Carter IV, and even named it after him. Since then MegaMan’s been back to the lab concocting creations for Drake, Young Jeezy, and Birdman.

Meanwhile several local talents have remade his self-titled record, and this week I leave you with two in particular: a video from Nu Money Gang’s Syph, and an audio file from Devon Tracy.

MegaMan Interviews: ONE; TWO; and THREE

{::}FASHION{::}

As our urban culture finds its rhythm it expands upon its style as well. I’ve already discussed Adrift, Today’s Sportswear and The Accessory Bar with you, now let me introduce you to F-As-In-Frank Vintage. Offering retro sweaters, jackets, and crewnecks it’s a throwback collection for all things hip hop. Located in Queen West its hardwood layout and hand-picked attire are something every keen eye should check out. Add to that an impressive array of antique frames (glasses that is), and a slew of old NBA jerseys and you’ve got one of the most unique shops in town.

    AMAZING PIECE! I’ve been watching F as in Frank for a minute now, and I’m sooooo happy that they’re in T-Dot finally! They had a spot out in Vancouver for the longest time and it’s definitely over-due that they put something out here. Love your intuitiveness with everything that goes on in music and urban fashion in the city. Keep it up, Blood.  “I’m blowin on that Maple Leaf, Most you dudes, just make believe”.

    That’s a cold line. Call it frozen coke.

      Thanks slime. I am trying more and more to get in tune with this city’s urban heart beat. So far I’m just starting out on something I hope continues to continue. We have to do a day of hitting up the shops. Let me know!
