D.O., or Defy The Odds as he’s also known, might sound familiar to you. He’s the 2003 Guinness Record holder for longest freestyle, 9 HOURS!! He hails from Toronto, Canada and is also the head of the Northstarr record label. He’s got a new single out produced by Classified and featuring Joell Ortiz and Saukrates called “Capture The Moonlight”. Between this and the Shad joint from earlier, it’s feeling like Canada day up in here. Good music all around.
Arizona Hip-Hop duo Cut Throat Logic is no stranger to the “underground” hip-hop scene. They have performed with countless and notable acts from Raekwon to KRS-One. They have been on the grind for more than 15 years. Emcees JustUs and Deonte’s first single from their upcoming album Lights Out is “Stay True”, an ode to their longevity in the scene in a way. Staying true to ones’ vision and art is key in maintaining and progressive and established career, especially in the music industry. Seeing through the deception that is fame and fortune and honing your craft are vital. Refuse to be the flash in the pan. Lights Out will be dropping soon and it features some collaborations with a couple of West Coasts vets, Too Short and Crooked I.
