After driving listeners around in his “Benz” months ago, Rapper Nyne 11 follows up with the release of his EP, “Trapping From the North“. Consisting of 5 tracks and released through his PLVNET 9 label, he shows listeners that he’s still on his way to getting things done even during a pandemic. The EP gets backed by Trap production, and features a guest appearance by fellow PLVNET 9 member Dada Mafia. The Jamaican Hip Hop movement continues to grow over the year, and has branched out in various ways. Get familiar.
What has been teased since the beginning of time (sorry Unruly Boss lol), Popcaan finally gives the people the highly anticipated follow up to his “Yiy Change Mixtape“. Linking up with Chromatic, we get the “Yiy Change Fixtape“! Consisting of 32 tracks all curated by Creep and Travis Chromatic, Popcaan gives us plenty reasons why the long wait was worth it. With features from Jada Kingdom, Skillibeng, Preme, French Montana, Quada, Baker Steez, Tommy Lee, PartyNextDoor, Dane Ray, Masicka, Unruly Cuz, Drake and more, this is a celebration of a great musical journey Popcaan has traveled so far. From Gaza, to Unruly, to OVO, the “Prefect” has grown a lot, and is making boss moves.
Recording Artist HeartBreakQuotey was a young legend in Toronto, Canada. For those who knew him, he was always making things happen, and lit up the scene. An artist who stayed on the grind over the years, he gave listeners a style that wasn’t like anyone else’s. Sadly, he passed away recently, and to keep his name alive, his brother and Producer DJ Blkluos released the project called, “2 Fly 2 Be Broke“.
Featuring 12 tracks, listeners will get a chance to learn what goes on in the mind of HBQ. With production from DJ Blkluos, Ryan Whiskey, and JaymeFromThe9, we get a dose of throwback Hip Hop, Trap, and R&B sounds that do a great job of backing up HBQ’s lyrics. The mixtape also has guest appearances from DopeFa$e, Enaledge, 73V1NN, Jane Doe Smith, and Joe Law who made sure it was extra fire. While death may affect us in various ways, it’s always best to cherish to good times of the ones you’ve lost. For new and old fans of HeartBreakQuotey, we ask you like him live on through the music. R.I.P. HBQ 🙏🏽
Never stopped waving the flag for Jamaican Hip Hop, Rapper Five Steez has been putting in the necessary work to make the “First Coast” an official thing. With a decade plus in the biz, he has showcased his sound that has stayed true to the Hip Hop roots, and commands a presence that’s respected worldwide. With plenty projects to his name, one of them stood out for a time, and that was 2016’s “HeatRockz” with Producer Mordecai. In 2020, the duo follow it up with “HeatRockz 2.0“!
With 4 tracks loaded plus a bonus track that’s available with the EP’s purchase, Five Steez continues to display his passion for the art, and dabbles in a style that pays respect to the OGs, while still being modern. Mordecai on the other hand, shows growth in his production from the last project, and still gives Steez and listeners some head bopping sounds. If you’re a follower of Five Steez, you know he has a lot more in store before the end of the year. In the meantime, tune in to “HeatRockz”, and support it by purchasing on Bandcamp as it’s “Bandcamp Friday” where Artists see a waiver in revenue share, thus carrying home more of the profit from sales!
The quarantine has found creators creating, and the Producers especially have gone into overdrive. DJ/Producer BoomDraw has been cooking up remixes that we know you’ll enjoy.

In light of everything that’s going on in the world, one thing for sure, the music has to live on. We hope our articles and selections provide some comfort for you in these times.
