The Runaway! Good Times Part 4! 11-minutes of Dopeness!

At the beginning of 2015, twelve emcees from Canada and the U.S. began collaborating on a posse cut song to release in the summer. The song was done in honour of departed & highly influential emcee Praverb the Wyse. Now complete, the 11+ minute song is called Good Times part 4. 

The collaborating emcees are what Praverb would call Professional Hobbyists - regular working folks who strongly pursue rap as a hobby. The artwork contains references to Praverb's album of the same name & emcee Brett Klassen pays homage to Praverb in the song.

While the list of artists may be unfamiliar, these emcees deliver great rhymes & a positive spirit that would make Praverb proud. Project creator Jon Corbin (aka The Runaway) is joined by Canadian artists Mark Danger, RUIN, Brett Klassen, Soul Natural, Es, Dean West & Youngdo Kang. The U.S. is represented by Fab da Eclectic, reSEARCH, Joshua Kennedy & Sundance. 

Good Times part 4 is available for download as of Tues Aug 11 via Bandcamp and NoiseTrade. All money raised from sales will be given directly to the Family of Praverb the Wyse

Praverb The Wyse Tribute: Half Man Half Amazing

For weeks, I have been pouring over the words that I wanted to use to describe my interactions with Praverb and how much of an impact that he had on me and my music. Somewhere in that process, however, I realized that my story was not at all that unique; rather, just about anyone who had any type of relationship with him would also have a similar story. So rather than flood you with my musings about my experiences with Praverb, I will just leave this video here for you to enjoy and remember our friend, Praverb The Wyse.

Faith & Love - Canon & Ritz Video (@getthecanon)

"Love... It's standing next to your husband after he falls 35 feet over the highway, it's losing sleep so that the other can" - Canon.

Hip hop artist, Canon, was on his way home after a show as he normally does, but this particular time was to be different, it was to be a life changing moment when he came across an accident on the highway and was in a position to rescue someone; little did Canon realise that this moment would change his life as well. 

In this video, Canon explains that during this moment he fell 35 feet over the highway and suffered a devastating injury. Note, the following video will hit you right in the heart... it's a story of true love, and a great representation of marriage as God intended.

The BrainStormers Ep (Epic Repost!)

Mp3 Download

Here is another track that was excluded from The BrainStormers EP. The track was produced by SMIMooz. The track order for this song starts with Praverb the Wyse, then A.L. Laureate, and it ends with Cayoz Da Beast. The cuts were provided by Dj Grazzhoppa.

Verse 1 (Praverb the Wyse)
Inspiration is low, I am racing my muse
I'm anxious to prove I'm dope so I stay in the booth
Hip-Hop doesn't move me, I'm replacing the tunes
Changing the mood by simply playing some Blues//
Seen hate in the news, yes the hatred ensues
Night stalker, a werewolf shaped by the moon
Wages earned becomes something placed in a pool
The future is now, retirement is basically true//
Vagueness of statements has me chasing the truth
Adding substance like pepper to some flavorless food
Dumping bodies in a lake or lagoon
You want to battle fine, pass the wine, precede to vacate the saloon//
Empty it out, deadly with the pencil or mouth
Lacking faith, has you shivering, you simply in doubt
When people name regions they don't mention the South
That makes no sense like trying to pitch a tent in a house//

Verse 2 (A.L. Laureate)
Present myself to the offspring uttering news
Cause arguing views eliminates cats covered in jewels
Time plays a factor in this equation
Every rhyme signifies a bomb with one tick remaining//
With back and forth bars, I 'm at an arms distance
Calm with it, fortitude revealed through my long grimace
Outlast rivals, before the race behinds
I carry a backpack with grenades without the pins//
A Unabomber that flows
Leave the whole crowd showered with highlighted words that signify power
I mix hip-hop down with a side of intellect
Now the images that I paint are fresh and dripping wet//
Leaving minds and behinds, smeared with what you hear
I'm automatic in traffic, you struggle in first gear
Dude, I got purpose, so learn it in the furnace
Whether you pay for it or download and burn it//

Verse 3 (Cayoz Da Beast)
Y'all dudes need to get with the program before you catch a choke slam
Yo, AL and P-Viz can I be the spokesman
Dope fam majors fall back we got our own plan
All as one our styles fit right like a Trojan//
Oh man who else you know can bring the sickness
And indirectly redefine the term lyrical fitness
A single snippet from me got them all trying to mimic
Googling stores trying to get my style on their wish list//
Our assault on the microphones relentless
Three diamonds in the rough should be enough to spark you interest
We vintage with the lines got the game in our clinches
Why you think these rappers stomachs turning flips like a gymnast//
Somewhat reminiscent of the golden times
When everything was based off your skill and your lines
Nowadays everybody glorifying crime
Which is sad in my opinion cause that just ain't sublime//

Flame'in It Up with *New* Female Emcee Kfire!

Interview by ~Mike Gaits~

Mike Gaits.: Who is Kfire? As a Christian Hip-Hop Female artist is it hard to gain exposure?
Kfire Kemara.: Kfire is a person that doesn’t just want to tell my own story but I hope to relate to other people’s story. The goal is to inspire people. I’m just a person that’s using God gifts to bring hope to the humanity. Gaining exposure, yes it’s hard but the one thing that makes it hard is that people try to get you to compromise and be what they want you to be. I feel that just because you’re a woman doesn’t mean you have to be a sex symbol. Ultimately as a female rapper I feel that you have to work harder to earn the respect of others, also especially as a woman when you’re not fitting a certain image; I’m trying to kill those stereotypes. We don’t have to be flawless & we don’t have to be sex symbols.

Mike Gaits.: Are you currently working on any new music? What’s your IPod playlist looking like?

Kfire Kemara.: Right now I’m more focused on getting booked for some shows in Detroit & promoting my latest project. “Hope is All I Got mixtape” but I will start working on my first album soon. My playlist right now I’m listening to Kendrick’s new album, Rapsody’s new album & Sean C. Johnson Ep, those are just a few of the artist I’m bumping to right now.

Mike Gaits.: Movement is always good to hear, and building new connects. On your mixtape, “Hope is All I Got” Track No. 1 – My Hope Intro was very intriguing, this definitely caught my attention. What was the message behind this?                     
Kfire Kemara.: The goal was to try my best to give the people an idea of the whole mixtape in a few bars. I really wanted the people to understand who I am as a person & artist. In the mixtape I’m going to talk about the struggle, and the negativity around us, equally giving the people solutions to stay the course and follow their dreams. “Don’t go through it, grow through it.” There’s a lot of artist out here, but what separates me from them is, I’m going to talk about real life issues and struggle from a new perspective.

Mike Gaits.: Where do you find your inspiration? When do you find the time to record your music? How can you see positive through corruption in this world we live in?

Kfire Kemara.: I’m inspired by my family. I come from a family that focuses on working hard and trusting in God even when we didn’t have much. I learned to be appreciative by talking to people who have beat the odds who followed their hearts to go on and do great things. That is what inspires me to be grateful for the talents that God has presented me with. When I’m not working or doing school work, I’m recording. Now and days it’s hard, but you got to manage your time wisely. Especially when all you see are the world negatives making it hard to see anything that’s good. Objectively that’s really what faith is all about when you have Christ you know that in the end you have something that’s going to last for forever. Pain is only temporary keeping the end in focus and appreciating the good people and the good things you do have. Living with the right mentality and making good decisions will elevate you higher to the one above.

Mike Gaits.: Very logically said. Can you give the fans some gems to keep them inspired.

Mike Gaits.: Dope! Anything you would like to say to empower a younger crowd who are seeking change in a positive way?

Kfire Kemara.: Surround yourself with like-minded people and cut off distractions stay focused on your goals and trust in God.
