An unsung hero is a person who is not honored or praised for their considerable achievements in a particular field. Though he has yet to release his debut album, artist/producer Colin Munroe sees himself as one such unappreciated overachiever. In fact, the Toronto native feels so strongly about his talents (and the apparent lack of credit that he has been given), that he has entitled his forthcoming mixtape Colin Munroe Is the Unsung Hero. The project, which will feature appearances by Joell Ortiz, Mickey Factz and Blaqstarr, includes a remixed version of Munroe’s current buzz single, Will I Stay. Joining the indie hip-rocker (yes, I made that one up) is fellow industry newcomer Wale, as well as veteran producer and Rowdy Records labelmate Dallas Austin. Though Munroe handles the production himself, the underlying message of the record is what will truly leave an impression on listeners.
