redleafgoldteeth. est 2015. 

redleafgoldteeth was dreamed up in early 2015 as a platform to create, and by February 2015, was up and running. We strive to bring Canadians the latest and greatest urban content everyday, whether it be new music, clothing look books, shoe drop dates, or just articles and journals that inspire and applaud the culture we live.

Canada isn’t the same as the States, and we don’t think you should be treated the same. We are one of the most diverse countries in the world, and it reflects in the versatility of our urban culture. The culture we live and love is no longer strictly hip hop, baggy tees and Timbs; no we’re blessed by things like Electronic music, joggers and Roshes influencing the culture as well.

Be a taste-maker, not a taste-tester

As much as we want to deny it, Canadian culture dropped off in 2000’s, after booming in the 90’s. As kids who were born into the amazing culture that things like the Blue Jays, Raptors, and Canadian Hip-Hop brought in the 90’s, we were forced to sit back and watch as America did it’s thing for next 10 years. With the re-emergence of our own identity, we deserve to finally have our chance to show out.

This blog will keep you up to date on similar things you might be seen on other sites like Hypebeast, Illroots, Complex and HNHH, but with a Canadian spin (especially pertaining to releases, and tour dates). With that said, we’ll also post the music that you won’t see anywhere else, because we know how much of a creative influence the music has on the culture.

Consider this your new favourite website. Be a taste-maker, not a taste-tester.

RLGTCanada, canadian tastemakers.

Bio: I started this blog about a month after my 20th birthday, after being inspired by some of America’s finest; I wanted a platform for Canadians to be showcased. Now its our turn.
