Ace and the whole

Looking ahead to next week’s Under Pressure / Cult MTL co-presentation of the Beaux Degats art battle and show feat. Masta Ace, Wordsworth, Toronto’s Citizen Kane and MTL’s own L.E.S. (among others) PLUS this week in hip hop, from Heart Streets and the Hiram Key Project to Action Bronson and Sweatshop Union.

Around the way

Budget wisely for hip hop shows ahead, from Masta Ace at Foufs later this month to Please Me at Salon Officiel this Saturday to a hip hop festival coming on strong in its second year. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Today’s Sounds: My Dick

American duo My Dick achieve sophomoric excellence by inserting penis into a whack of pop songs, plus a new track by Action Bronson and a video by Cadence Weapon.
