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 on; Welcome to The Showcase.
The Showcase: Best Submissions of January/February 2016
(Check out December’s winner, Chri$ Born, here)
Cellus Hamilton – Church Politics
To celebrate the release of his CCPT3 mixtape (available now!), Cellus Hamilton has just released the video for his single “Church Politics” in creative hip-hop style. The visual arrives just one month after the official release of the project, and will be followed by videos for “600 Degrees Below” & “Mojo”. The video – directed by Nick Beauregard of Blakkhouse Films – is an unfiltered expression of how human tradition & religion divides people like politics. In “Church Politics”, Cellus Hamilton returns to his hip-hop roots; and resurrects the lyricism that grabbed the industry’s attention in 2013.
