LosDaSavage is telling stories filled with pain that remains stained on Batan Rouge’s streets. Los comes from a generation inspired by the vivid stories painted by the likes of NBA Youngboy and Kevin Gates. On his latest single, “Leave Me”, Los highlights the realities that plague him, his peers, and youth in similar positions where the streets is the only way of life for survival. Los unleashes melodies, crooning gun-threats to his opps, all while putting on for himself and his team. “Leave Me” is a result of countless nights of hunger, and many days of loss.

Canada continues to thrive in the hip-hop world but this time, the talent is from the West Coast. At only 22 years old, Vancouver-based artist Boslen is making moves. The hip-hop newcomer’s music style is quite diverse, combining sounds of hip-hop, rock and pop. His latest single ‘QUARTZ’, featuring Toronto rapper Charmaine, is a fierce track which shows off Boslen’s lyricism and his unique vocals. The song is also accompanied by a music video filmed in Vancouver and Toronto, bringing the energy of both cities together. ‘QUARTZ’ is the third single off the artist’s forthcoming album DUSK to DAWN, out later this year.
Check out the video for ‘QUARTZ’ below.
