We got right into the tunes tonight by featuring what is perhaps the most anticipated Canadian hip-hop album of all time, Drake’s “Thank Me Later”. Say what you will about Drake, but he has been doing it extra big with the likes of Saukrates, Jay-Z, Lil' Wayne, Young Jeezy, and plenty more. It's good to see a Canadian artists getting worldwide attention like he is. It also wouldn't hurt to support the album legally so Canadian music can get that shine in the US!
We also pulled off a 1st for us here at the Urban Renewal Project by doing an interview with 2 artists, one in-studio and one over the phone! We had Vancouver's Fallan Soldier in the spot while we linked up with Teekay (of Dragon Fli Empire) on the line from Calgary. Teekay & Fallan Soldier are embarking on the Move The Mountains tour that seeks to bridge the gap between artists in Western Canada. The tour is making stops in Nanaimo (Spice Lounge), Victoria (Lucky Bar) and Vancouver (The Cobalt - which, by the way, is no longer a metal bar) on the 17t, 18th and 19th, respectively.
