Shouts out to ALL the ladies holdin’ it down in hip hop. I met Nyce Touch a few years ago and been steadily keeping an eye on her growth as an artist and producer.  She even held her own as a contestant on RapCity’s Freestyle Battle on Much Music a while ago – something that many female MCs may have found intimidating, she just brushed it off her shoulders and dealt with the case.  Not one to shy away from anything, I fully respect her grind and for breaking the mould.  She keeps proving herself as a force to be reckoned with, and has already worked with some of Canada’s heavy hitters.  Check out her debut album – Split Personality, where she plays the role of MC AND Producer – now available on iTunes.

Nyce Touch’s debut LP makes her debut with a collection of HIT potential songs reminiscent of classic Missy Elliott fused with the new-school commercial sensibilities of The Dream.  Enjoy this 11 track LP almost entirely produced by Nyce Touch herself with vocal features from Supreme Swiss and Hakeem Rose.

If you’re asking where the female emcees are, clearly you haven’t checked Jane & Finch in Toronto.

Shouts out to my ladies at for posting this last week, but I just had to share:

First, I was blown away by this all-female cypher and then totally inspired – I just had to put this sh*t on repeat.  Featuring Lola bunz, Rushiie Raw, Badas$ Bukk and Roots, this cypher shows the ladies completely tearing it up, more gutter and raw than A LOT of dudes I’ve heard lately. I’m really proud of the fact that even some of the toughest critics in the city are putting aside the typical T-Dot Screwface to acknowledge how dope each emcee truly is.

The video sparked something  just when I’ve been feeling the drain of 2011 starting to get to me.  Not a single low-cut/revealing top, crazy weave or gimmick to distract – you have no choice but to get slapped in the face with their lyrics and pay attention to what they’re saying.   I can’t wait to see what each of these ladies has in store for next year, and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing and hearing more.

Yet another reason why I’m proud of my city.
