billy woods "Duck Hunt" (Video) 

Earlier this spring, billy woods announced his latest album, History Will Absolve Me, with an April 10th release date. Since then, he's leaked a number of tracks, including the Roc Marciano- and Masai Bey-featured lead single "Body Of Work" and the most recently released non-album track "Frozen Sunlight," which features Open Mike Eagle and MarQ Spekt. Now, with April 10th finally upon us, woods is celebrating his album release with a video for the album's latest single, "Duck Hunt."

The song, produced by A.M. Breakups, is one of the eeriest on History Will Absolve Me, built around dark, bubbling synths, muted horns, and a steady drum break, which does well to compliment woods' fluid, complex flow, with bars like, "Black Robert Baden Powell, never caught without the ratchet/ Grass like Wimbeldon; wood racquet/ Rap like a simpleton, see new tax bracket/ So-called goons, turns out they schools was magnet." The video, directed by Crosby, fits the track's grimy, claustrophobic vibe, shot in cluttered rooms and decrepit hallways, red and blue tints serving to both outline and obscure.

Saukarates - Say I (Video) + Philosophy Webisode Part 1 

Canada’s Finest Releases First Visual For Lead Single From New Album Dropping This Month

One of Canada’s most venerated MCs, Saukrates, is proud to present his newest visual for the inspiring lead single, “Say I.” The Rich Kidd-produced single, features a guest verse from OB OBrien, and is from his forthcoming album, Season One. The 15-plus year rap vet is prepping the release of his new album later this month via FrostByte Media Inc.

Fans were first introduced to “Say I” when it was used as part of Nike’s Always On campaign back in October of last year. The song served as a backdrop to a day in the life of Montreal Canadiens hockey player P.K. Subban. For the song’s video, Saukrates decided to stick with the pucks, as its set in a hockey rink with an assortment of young, fired-up “grown-men” ready to “break legs and slit throats” of anyone who stands in their way (commanded of them in Coach OB OBrien’s gripping speech). Producer Rich Kidd draped the track with inspirational keys and an infectious drum break that inspired director Figz! of Figvrati Films to embody the overall “You Can Do It” attitude in the single’s video. From the first words of the hook, “I can do what I wanna,” to the song’s end, “Say I” is a Simon Says mantra for listeners to believe in themselves.

Accompanying the new single is the first webisode of Saukrates “Philosophy” series, where he discusses the overall sports-driven theme for Season One. You can check out the webisode here:
