I’m late. But that’s alright. Shouts to Sajae for putting me on. Toronto, stand up!
HUGE LINE UP.
Following disappointing sales of last year’s Graffiti, which came on the heels of his guilty plea for assaulting Rihanna, Chris Brown is churning out new music in an attempted comeback. Not only has his mixtape-spawned cut “Deuces,” featuring Tyga, topped the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart, but the track has also been remixed to include guest spots from five hip-hop heavyweights, including Drake and Kanye West.
“I’mma let ya’ll know a little secret,” Brown told fans. “We got the ‘Deuces’ remix coming. ‘Deuces’ remix features myself, Fabolous, T.I., Drake, Kanye West, and André 3000. There you have it. My people are probably about to call me and say, ‘You weren’t suppose to tell anybody,’ but so what? I love you guys.”
The singer revealed that the remix to the kiss-off track is set to be released as soon as he receives a verse from West. “I’m actually supposed to be getting Kanye’s verse any minute now,” he explained. “I got everybody else’s very ready, so we’re waiting right now. We’re gonna put it together and have it to y’all either by next week or this week, probably Friday. I ain’t making no promises.”
In addition to treating Team Breezy to the big-time collaboration, Brown said that he will shoot a video for the remix.
Brown has been steadily releasing plenty of new music, including his pop single “Yeah 3x,” which Brown said he wrote in 15 minutes with Kevin McCall, Richgirl’s SeVen and DJ Frank E. “We actually got the beat and we did it in no time.” he said. “It was effortless. It was fun. It was sort of like when we wrote ‘Forever,’ so I hope you guys like that record. It’s more of a pop record, in the club record.”
The singer gave fans a taste of his other much talked about song “Calypso,” which may appear on the new LP.
“I wouldn’t say it’s my comeback album,” he said of F.A.M.E. “I just say it’s my album. I wouldn’t say it’s a comeback because I don’t feel like I went anywhere. I didn’t disappear. I still was in your face. But I feel like it’s a great album. It’s going to show a lot more growth and a lot more fun in music. It isn’t going to be as depressing, so to speak.” He’s also considering putting the remix to “Deuces” on the album as a bonus for fans. SOURCE

Jay “IDOL” Braaks is a Westland Michigan born, Windsor Ontario raised hip hop artist. He Began rapping at the young age of 12, being highly influenced by artists like Jay-Z, Nas, Tupac, and Biggie. At this time, Braaks only freestyled and used rap as an alternate to writing journals, explaining his everyday life through writing short verses. In his highschool years, Jay found himself writing full songs, performing at small venues and battle rapping on a regular basis.
In 2007, at the age of 21, he released his first mixtape entitled “Braak N Entry” which received rave reviews from the streets alone. Off the success from the mixtape, Jay performed at countless events in Windsor, ranging from parties to clubs and high schools. Building his resume, he spent the next couple of years concentrating on releasing an endless amount of songs to the internet, performing and ghostwriting for R&B and hip hop artists, dedicated to keep a solid buzz growing.
In April 2010, with a well crafted and deep arsenal of music, Braaks released his second mixtape titled “Tha Addiction” available for free download at http://www.datpiff.com/Jay_Braaks_Tha_Addiction.m116511.html which has been now glorified as being a certified “classic mixtape” from many listeners and blog sites.
Now, at 25, Jay Braaks continues to work hard and has just released his latest video “On My Own” available to view on Youtube, and is off his next mixtape titled “A Proud Outcast” which is scheduled for a late October release.

You guys know I always bring you the freshest new unsigned talent in the city. I met L in the oddest of places (holla Hong Shing’s) and didn’t know he was an artist at the time. We got to talking and he sent me some of his work. I was intrigued. L’s humble yet confident nature, passion, genuine hunger for his craft and determination leaves me knowing that, without a shadow of a doubt, he will do more than well in the game. I support good music. And in a city that’s over saturated with every random dude trying to rap I believe L isn’t one of those “random dudes” and that he indeed makes good music. Last Friday he dropped “Respect” (Click the song title to gain insight into the making of this joint) to much praise and …. respect ;). Check it out for yourself, though.
Listen & Love”.
I’ve been writing and making music since the age of 14. I realized I wanted do this in like, ’97. I was watching the MTV Video Music Awards and I saw Puff and Mase come down from the ceiling and they did all the hits from that year. I was like, ‘Wow,’ that is what I want to do.
I’ve done my thing here and there. Was in a group, did some shows. Left that, took some time and thought. “If this is my one opportunity to do something in my life that means anything, I’m gonna make it count”.
I’ve always felt something telling me that I could do great things in music if had the opportunity! Well I’ve been waiting for that to arrive and its been past late, so at this point I’m making my own opportunity on my own terms!

I’m not going to sit here and go into what the actual G20 summit is about … I’m gonna say something extremely brief, short, sweet and to the point about what’s been happening in my city of Toronto these past couple of days.
First and foremost: all you idiots that came from far to come and mash up my city need to go back to wherever you came from and mind your own. This shit has gotten out of control. What are you really protesting about? When the first car was set ablaze I said on twitter: “If this unrest continues over the rest of the weekend, how much of it will really be about the G20?” This weekend is just an excuse for SOME people to wreck havoc and cause chaos. GTFO of my city with all that there bullshit. This is embarrassing Toronto. Canadians don’t get down like this. For the ones that do, I’m appalled at the behaviours of the city’s citizens. But at the same time, I’m not surprised either (if that makes any sense).
I’m just happy that so far there have been no major injuries or human casualties because that would just set me over the edge.
In conclusion: here’s a word to the masses that wanna damage Toronto: if you fuck up a Tim Horton’s people will burn you at the stake. Timmy’s is a national treasure. DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT, SON!
