Rap from The Great White North

When I think of Canada, hip hop is not one of the first things that springs to mind. In fact, I don't think I could even name one rapper or hip-hop artist out of Canada other than the one-hit wonder Snow (of the incredible 90s reggae-rap hit, "Informer").

Here's a photo to jog your memory:

It's in your head now, right?
"In-forrr-mer, a blah blah blah blah blah blah blaaah, I lickey boom boom dowwwn."
Wow, that was a masterpiece.

Anyway, I was reading the Canadian blog High Street Love the other day and she posted a video from her town of Thunder Bay. I think it's the sampling of ADELE's "Hometown Glory" that really makes this song, but I kinda like it, so I wanted to share. And, as A mentions, the production on this video is incredible:

Not too bad considering it's a white-boy Canadian rapper, right? Kinda catchy... And really good video/editing work, considering it's only semi-pro. Pretty good!


  1. It was def sampling Adele's "Hometown Glory" that made that song, but not BAD. BTW, does that guy sorta remind you of Ashton Kutcher just a little? Maybe it's just the trucker hat. :P

  2. Hmmmm...I see what you're saying re: Ashton Kutcher (hat, shaggy hair, impish smile and boyish looks), but I think it might be a stretch overall. :) Not too bad as a song though, right?
