(Video) LolaBunz – West End Prod. By Trizzlam @TheLolabunz

Published

on

LolaBunz is a rising multidisciplinary artist. From Toronto, she has held several titles as a hip hop artist, spoken word artist, youth activist and entrepreneur. At 27, LolaBunz is highly known for using her music and words of influence to inspire and bring communities together, locally and internationally. She has been making strides as a fierce lyricist, with her woke attitude and raw talent, proudly representing her city.

Over the years, she has landed major performances on BET, Manifesto, Honey Jam Canada, Canadian Music week, TIFF and much more. Never static, she likes to catch her fans off guard, especially with her upcoming new project: “Many people hear the word ‘rapper’, or female rapper, and expect to hear one type of sound or vibe, even when they hear LolaBunz, some expect the raw gritty hood chick. My upcoming album ‘Wild Card’ was named for that reason, to let people know that I am very versatile – I can sing, rap, be conscious, be gritty. I can do it all”. Infused with a West African background, her music is a tribute to all the different influences she grew up around, which made her the accomplished artist that she is.

2018 will be an even bigger year for LolaBunz, as she will be dropping her new album ‘Wild Card’ later this summer. “I spent about a year really focusing on my brand and starting/deleting songs, loving/hating them. For a while, I was so focused on what type of music was trending and what people were listening to, but it got to a point where I literally said f*ck it and chose to just do what I feel like Lola would like to hear, and those are the songs I chose for this album.”

The first single and video off her highly anticipated new LP, ‘West End’, testifies of LolaBunz’ upbringing around a multitude of different communities, in the West End of Toronto. “Jamaicans, Somaliens, Africans, Asians, this song and video was my way of capturing the essence of the people, the places, the food, the cultures that contributed to my upbringing”. Giving listeners an anthem that shows not only where she came from, but that regardless of what neighbourhood or community and culture you are from, we can all relate under a common acceptance and celebration of each other.

Grammy and Juno Award-winning producer/engineer David Strickland releases his debut solo instrumental album Foundation

Published

Grammy and Juno Award-winning producer/engineer David Strickland has released his debut solo album Foundation via MNRK Music, a 20 track instrumental project that seamlessly blends his hip hop-fuelled musical inspirations over the years. Boasting production credits with a who’s who of rap superstars including Drake, EPMD, The Clipse, Def Squad, Method Man, Kardinal Offishall, Saukrates, Maestro Fresh Wes and many more, Foundation arrives as a follow up to his last critically-acclaimed 2022 release Spirit of Hip Hop: Elements album, and its prior accompanying series, that celebrated, showcased and highlighted a wide range of North American rap icons alongside emerging Indigenous rappers. “This album represents the first time I did something musically that was just strictly by myself. No MCs or singers. Just me alone. Producer and engineer,” explains the Scarborough-born producer/engineer who has quietly worked behind the scenes for decades, producing, mixing and/or engineering records from the likes of Canadian urban music legends including Glenn Lewis, Ghetto Concept, Jelleestone, Choclair and k-os. “I was in NYC going through beats in the studio and I was looking at the last two albums I released and the instrumental versions, and it made me think about how guys like DJ Muggs and The Alchemist have been doing instrumental albums for years. I spoke to my A&R and VP about the idea, and then locked myself in the studio and banged out and revamped a couple beats and it just all came together.”

Strickland pays homage to his neighborhood roots on “Scarboro Forever”, and references his career sustenance on “The Journey”, but what lies at the core of the highly rhythmic, breezy and boom bap-inspired production on Foundation, is that at its core, it reminds listeners of what it takes to make a hit record – the production, which is the foundation. But the album title carries deeper layers of meaning. “Music is the foundation of any song, and I am a part of the foundation of the ‘Toronto Sound’. Any good project needs a solid foundation. And say what you want about me, but I’m a finisher. I always deliver.” Foundation delivers on all fronts, and appeals to music lovers of many stripes, as its contemporary sonic edges are rounded out nicely by its timeless classic old school musical sensibilities.

After dropping his 2023 iTunes #1 EP ‘First Summer Without You’ and a string of single releases in 2024, the South Bronx, NY native Elijah The Boy readies us for summer with new heat. His newest offering “EGO” is a vibrant single that switches up the tone of his recent drops.

With a distinct blend of hip-hop, Jersey club drums, and Brazilian Phonk, the Puerto Rican lyricist flexes his powerful delivery over the alluring, rhythmic record that is intricate and aggressive all at once. Elijah explains that the production on “EGO” features heavy influence from the Bronx club scene, which undoubtedly showcases his outstanding level of sonic versatility and inventiveness.

“My new single is inspired by the hip-hop/Brazilian phonk music that I started hearing in the NY nightlife scene. I’ve always been a fan of music from different genres whether it was Latin, Afro beat, or Brazilian Phonk, and am attracted to the cadences they use and pockets they are able to find within the beat. I wanted to create a song that made people dance and feel good and forget about the problems with catchy bars and word play that was fun. One day I was in the studio with my producer Navi Beats and my Engineer Mixed By Auden, and we were brainstorming ideas. I thought of blending Brazilian Phonk with my usual sound. We ended up making this fun, catchy braggadocious record that in the end was only right to titles it ‘EGO’” – Elijah The Boy
