The Showcase: Best Submissions of October 2015

Want to get your music heard by more people?

The showcase is a brand new RLGT monthly segment, that will help up-and-comers do just that. Instead of trying to stay on top the the multiple submissions we get each week, we’ve decided to give the best user submissions of each month a chance to be heard by a whole new audience. We’ll take a handful of the best tracks sent to us each, toss ’em into the showcase, and let the viewers vote on their favorite. After 7 days, winner takes all. The winning artist will not only get the bragging rights, but will also receive a full feature article and mini-interview about their submitted track/project, that will be seen by thousands of Canadian, American, and international hip-hop fans alike. Vote once a day for your favourite submission!

The show must go one… welcome to The Showcase.

The Showcase: October 2015

Cool Nutz – Bass Beatin’ ft E-40, Mistah Fab, Glasses Malone, & Drae Steve
Portland rapper Cool Nutz drops off his new single “Bass Beatin” from his latest album #BRUH. Produced by Trox and featuring a few huge appearances from E-40, Mistah Fab, Glasses Malone, & Drae Steve, you’ll definitely need to turn your speakers up for this caddy-slapper. Cool Nutz has recently been on tour with Too Short & E-40 as well as going Slum Village on their latest tour and continues to be a force to be reckoned with in the rap game. Make sure to check out #BRUH and be on the lookout for a Cool Nutz / Slum Village Remix produced by TOPE coming soon!
Raz Simone – That Nigga (Video)
Raz Simone and Black Umbrella Films continue the onslaught of video releases to remind everyone who’s “That Nigga”. Keeping up the crazy momentum Raz has been building up all year with the release of multiple block-busting projects, the visuals for the standout single is no different. The pride of Seattle’s underground combines picturesque settings, with gloomy, druggy scenes, over hard bars that combine to create a visual masterpiece. Shot and edited by Jake Hill, this one is sure to be a fan favourite.
Tope – Better Place

Fresh off his new beat tape FREE LEMONADE 2, Portland rapper TOPE drops off some new music in the middle of headlining his first west coast tour. Produced by Stewart Villain, sampling a classic Lauryn Hill record, BETTER PLACE finds TOPE speaking on his move to Oakland, recent Police violence, licensing his first song to TV, and more. Fresh off of his performance at the A3C Festival this year in Atlanta, look for big things soon.


Toozy – Hello

Toozy’s “Hello” is a brief introduction into the body of work he’s been releasing over the past months. Using a blend of ethnic sounds, jazz chords, and hip hop drums to create these pieces of work, the progression is beautiful. The Calgary based artist enjoys playing around with his sounds, as evident in the latest Soulection-esque instrumental.

James Lewis – Still Here

ATL based James Lewis’ “Still Here” is a elegant blend of Future RnB with Hip-hop!  Still Here, which is produced by Atlanta/ Rio De Janeiro-based production duo The Cool and includes samples of Clara La San’s “Let You Go” and Dru Hill‘s 90s R&B classic “Beauty”. Still Here finds the young rapper showcasing his laid back flow and emotional lyrics over a smooth instrumental.

Cellus Hamilton – #MyDrunkConfession (Video)

Cellus Hamilton refuses to hold his tongue in his latest freestyle, “#MyDrunkConfession”. Boasting production from Neal Howard (Atlanta) & Rozart (Chicago), Cellus Hamilton explodes on the heels of 2015 with this linguistic exercise. The pop-infused production from Howard is intertwined perfectly with Rozart’s contrasting trap palette. The video – directed by Blakkhouse Films – is a visual manifestation of both hip-hop & divine intoxication.
