As far as I know, these songs haven’t been released on a cd yet and, to be honest with you, I have no idea why. It was these two songs that drew my attention to this group in the first place and they need a spot to share in Hip-Hop history, let alone, a Canadian Hip-Hop buzz. I do apologize for the audio quality and I will say you have to listen to these songs in audio because this quality doesn’t do it any justice. Listening to the audio version will also give you the full version of each track as opposed to the blend they have here.
Seeing how Canada Day is more or less three weeks away, I thought it would be right to countdown the weeks by showcasing some of Canada’s talents in the Hip-Hop Gold section. Canada has a strong Hip-Hop community going as far back as the ’80s (if I’m not mistaken) and, even though a few became household names, I still find that Canadian rappers don’t get the recognition that they deserve. With that being said, I would like to stick to a Hip-Hop group that’s underrated and, in my opinion, under-appreciated even here in Canada because of their lifestyle. I bring to you Canada’s N.W.A., Point Blank holding it down for North America’s first housing project, Regent Park in Toronto, Ontario. If I had to describe their style, I’d say N.W.A. with their Gangsta Gangsta mentality meets Public Enemy with their conscious lyrics. Enjoy!
