If you’re looking for RnB and HipHop music, then Toronto is definitely the #1 place to look. We find ourselves discovering new music every week. New artists, new sounds and new captions for our instagrams. We’re able to earn the aux cord privileges regardless of where we sit in the car, and watch these up and coming stars rise in the industry right infront of us. This Toronto inspired playlist features exclusive music from up and coming artists who have proved to earn the spotlight and those who have proved to make a name for themselves independently.
It starts fast and energetic with Murda Beatz’ ft. Pressa’s Toronto banger titled ‘Novacane’ a very catchy and ‘Migos’ type of rap song. The playlist continues with up beat hiphop/rap music from artists such as Jazz Cartier, Fidel Benjamin, Tory Lanez and RamRiddlz. It then starts to slow down and bring in artists such as Roy Woods, Mirza, Lais, and Daniel Caesar who start to bring in the melodies before approaching the even slower-RnB jams such as Eddie’s “Perspective”, Dvsn, Majid Jordan and PartyNextDoor’s infamous “Persian Rugs” to end the night off with.
