This modern wave of hip-hop has taken major root in Ontario's provincial capital. Young bucks like CMDWN and Lil Berete rep the city's underground, building on what OGs like Kardinal Offishall helped define. Producers Histibe and Whensday do a standup job of recreating the deep harmonies and sweet piano riffs that characterise this sub-genre, and give countless examples of the kind of club-ready drum programming and speker-shaking low end these tracks excel in. There's over a GB of built-from-scratch beats and loops here, plus you get a heap of original rap vocals to pitch around and play with if you don't have any Torontonian MCs of your own on retainer. Shouts to the 416!
