The Real Frequency has put together a compilation album titled The New North, which features over 30 artists best representing Toronto’s up-and-coming talent. Pairing together MCs, producers, singers, and DJs from the city. The compilation features JD Era, Kardinal Offishall, Moss, Ayah, Rich Kidd, Tona, Boi-1-Da and more. The lead single “Flawless” features Potholes favorite Shad along with Frank Dukes on the beat. You might remember that Dukes produced a few joints on Ghostface Killah’s last album, Apollo Kids. “Flawless”, which also features cuts from DJ Dopey, is filled with Shad’s trademark wordplay and a super-raw beat from Dukes. The Mos Def vocal Dopey scratches is off the Rawkus classic “Body Rock” with Q-Tip & Tash. You can purchase The New North compilation on iTunes or through Bandcamp. [via]
