LEE REED // MURDER HORNET LANDLORD
Kanadian revolutionary rap loudmouth LEE REED is proud to present the 5-song COVID-inspired EP: MURDER HORNET LANDLORD. Penned in May and June of 2020, during the 2nd and 3rd month of Ontario’s shutdown, the project is a snapshot of life and struggles for working class North Americans coping with a global pandemic; and living life at the top of a steep slide, staring into the void of the greatest economic downturn in history. Part anti-capitalist analysis and part real life dystopian sci-fi rap opera. Dark rhymes for dark times. // Beats by I.Khan of the Dollar Bin Brothers. Cuts by !KrymeWon. Recorded and mixed by Aidan Robson at Catherine North in Hamilton. Art & promo images by Michael Dach.
TEST THEIR LOGIK // SEE
MAYDAY 2020 in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis - RHYMETHINK OG's TEST THEIR LOGIK celebrate the release of their 3rd album SEE. An epic piece of anti-capitalist art. Dark raps for dark times, and a torch to see us through. An album that defies easy sub-genre classification - moving from trap to sample-based boom-bap, to live instrumentation, across tempos and vibes, with a long list of guests and added flavour. Movement music; Hip-Hop with a heavy helping of revolution.

RHYMETHiNK is a radical Hip-Hop music collective, working on the stolen lands of occupied Turtle Island. Built from anarchist organizing tradition, on the principles of collectivism & mutual aid, the RHYMETHiNK mission is to create and disseminate expressly revolutionary Hip-Hop: to soundtrack & support the frontline efforts of freedom fighters and social movements; to popularize anti-colonial, anti-capitalist, and anti-authoritarian politics in Hip-Hop; to wield words as weapons in the fight for social & environmental justice; and to fly a phat musical middle finger at all would-be masters, and the thugs & sycophants that serve them // firstname.lastname@example.org
