If “Hip-Hop Cities” were to come up as a category in Family Feud, “Vancouver” might not be the first name to roll off your tongue. Nonetheless, it offers a caliber of talent that can compete with the game’s best and and brightest. On his latest promo single, local rhymesayer e.d.g.e. gives us an idea of just how lofty the Vancity Standard is, lacing HiPNOTT producer Danny Diggs’ boom-bap sample work with raw and uncompromising lyrical flames. A chorus sampled from Common‘s 6th Sense and DJ Honda‘s Mos Def-assisted Travellin’ Man (Remix) accents the record’s throwback vibe. If this cut leaves you craving more hot beats and rhymes from north of the US border, keep it locked to the Booth; while Standard isn’t attached to any forthcoming project, we’ll keep you supplied with all the latest from e.d.g.e.
