[NEW MUSIC] Blake Carrington – Legendary

June 21, 2012

Topping my list of young MCs from Toronto, I can honestly say it’s been a minute since I’ve seen anyone put it down like Blake Carrington. Ever since I first heard FRESH(er Than the Rest) off a Rich Kidd mixtape a few years ago, I’ve been a fan.  After his freestyle during one of the City On My Back/Stylus Cyphers last month, I know for a fact I’m not alone.  He takes the term “Cool Dad” to a next level – click on the image above and see what I mean.  Seeing Blake Carrington perform live is truly an experience.

He just released the single “Legendary” (produced by Ric Notes) off the soon-to-be-released album “Failure” – can’t wait to hear everything he has on deck. With his style and skill, Failure is definitely not an option. Check out the PR blurb from the label below, take in the chune, and FOLLOW him >> @carringtonworld

Oui Self Made is proud to release “Legendary” – the lead single off Blake Carrington’s upcoming FAILURE Project. Produced by Ric Notes, “Legendary” evokes the raw emotions and hunger for success that mark Blake Carrington’s rebirth and evolution as an artist. 

In this compelling and motivational track, Blake speaks as an advocate for those who have faced failure and overcome it to pursue their dreams. Shouting out influential hip hop legends Biggie, Tupac, and the Wu-Tang Clan, Blake makes it clear that he refuses to give up, and that his time to shine is now.


The FAILURE Project represents Blake’s commitment to making his dreams a reality, even when confronted with failure.  Blake is an innovative and dedicated artist who has put a huge amount of work into his musical career, despite being faced with adversity. He is “failing forward” towards his success, representing anyone who has ever overcome failure to pursue their goals.


“Legendary” ends with a quote from Muhammad Ali that reflects Blake’s journey of over 10 years in music: I’m experienced now, professional. Jaws been broke, been lost, knocked down a couple times. Blake Carrington has been through the wire and risen above failure. Oui Self Made is making history and ready to show the world exactly what legends are made of.  


Look out for the stunning visual accompaniment to “Legendary” dropping July 1st, as well as chapter two of the “Failing Forward” series entitled “D.O.P.E”, which will be released soon.
