A thread for fans of Canadian hip-hop or those who want to learn more... Discuss artists, tracks and post up some audio from what is effectively a less-travelled path in the hip-hop labyrinth (damn I got poetic skills).

Anyway, I personally love Canadian hip-hop for its purity and the fact that on average it's not nearly as watered down as a lot of (mostly mainstream) hip-hop these days. I get the feeling that most Canadian emcees love and respect the artform - they exude a hunger and enthusiasm that's either not evident or absent in many mainstream "artists". Those who haven't had a taste of this country's talent should take notice...

With that in mind:

Elohim Marino - Uncontrolled Emotions (http://s53.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=3GC8JFGJ0OZZG1Y3IZEQYZIJZR) (just discovered this last week - it's FIRE)
Infinite - Take A Look In My Eyes (http://s53.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=1ZVC4Z9HEPYLL0G6YH2EAY528L)
Saukrates - Fineline (http://s55.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0IJKSD4EPXMTT1NJFJVX1PXNIR) (tell me this beat isn't insane... I dare you)
Mathematik - Following Goals (f/ Bahamadia) (http://s55.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=3ESV8SR4CEISO1QMWBL3OAM5IT)
Dan-E-O - Dear Hip-Hop (http://s55.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0KIZ3ZX6CWK12JGHPMEUI4XFD) (classic track to those who know Canadian hip-hop)
Citizen Kane - Soldier Story (http://s55.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=2XZ23FCRQRDCJ3UBLD85QFKBFN)
Fascade - Character Of The Moment (http://s55.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=07OYXKPFHSN8D0ZUI4MDBZ5YFE) (instrumental gem - pure heat)
Solitair - Silver Surfer (http://s55.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=3CGXVSJLO325Z01NVC95NQKCW7)

If these tracks are new to you, post feedback...

To the other Canadians: any audio you can up is appreciated. I don't live in Toronto/Montreal/Vancouver so I have limited exposure to anything remotely "underground". Peace.

Rascalz - All over the world is possibly the best canadian hip hop song of all time... either that or northern touch.

But mostly canadian hip hop is boring... especially the shit they play on muchmusic.

I hear alot of good things about the last DL Incognito album, that dude is dope.

Thanks for the uploads - I'm familiar with all 3 tracks... very dope. I don't have the Saukrates track on my computer for some reason though... and the link you posted is for the Rascalz track. Do you have the correct link?

I'm not really into Canadian Hip Hop, but what I heard, it's good. Especially those from Toronto. Hardcore just how I love it!

Good looking out on the Maestro and Harpoon Missile tracks... I hadn't heard those. The Maestro track is especially ill.

Anybody have "I Love U" by Fin-S or "Throw This Ball" by Marvel. I've been looking for those forever... please help!!

Also, any comments on the Elohim Marino track I posted? It's dope as hell - I'm sure you'll like it if you check it out. Peace.
