New Video From Junk: My Table

by Matt Dame

Others got no business at my table...

 A celebration for the people riding with him, Vancouver's own lyrical mastermind Junk just dropped a new banger as he welcomes you to "My Table" where he serves up bars that will make you "choke on your pasta or even spit out your wine" Either way, Junk's latest releases have been blowing up with every new single he drops. If you ride with him, you're invited to the table and he will "feed you more than a Saudi in Arabia"
 The video, directed by Kevin Wong, depicts junk at the head of his table with his closest friends gorging on an Italian feast as Snak The Ripper calmly smokes weed from a bread bowl. Starkore lays the foundation with another classic beat.
 The local hip hop scene is growing hungry for the release of Junk's upcoming album Audio Heroin expected summer of 2018. For once, it would be a wise decision to drop the needle and get hooked on some Junk.

Snak The Ripper's New Music Video: Lesson Learned

 Snak The Ripper his new music video single Lesson Learned ahead of his upcoming album release.

Gonna be an good month!!". With that being said, there should be more surprises to come in the near future.
    Lesson Learned is one of those inspirational-driven songs that Snak has become known for. Drawing from the struggles of his own life experiences, he totes focus, determination and perseverance as the qualities needed to overcome your obstacles and follow your dreams.

BCUG Spotlight: Tastemakers

After a long hiatus, we are back again with the BC Underground spotlight series.

I've always felt it's important that the music community works together. It's our best hope in turning the Greater Vancouver Area into the northwestern hip hop powerhouse that we all want it to be. That we all know it CAN be. The scene as a whole has been getting better. The amount of quality music has been steadily improving and the overall support structure continues to grow with it. It's that support structure that I want to turn my attention to this time.
       Introducing 15 media platforms that are putting in work for the BC hip hop community:

Canadian Underdogs

Canadian Underdogs, headed by Vancouver rapper Sam Burrows, is a great indie blog that features live show coverage through their Youtube page, exclusive interviews, the occasional top 10 list, and local hip hop content shares across multiple platforms.
