Who is Mars Paris?

Who is Mars Paris? He is one of the hardest working and dedicated artists that we’ve been exposed to in a while. Music seems to be more than just life to Mars. Currently working on his mixtape “G.O.L.D.” and recording track after track we have finally gotten a hold of his newest release, “It’s Only Right” (Produced by Bassik) Working hard and grinding is key for this young artist and we can’t wait to see what he has to bring to the table when he drops his mixtape. Mars Paris is also featured on the second single off of I.Q’s mixtape “10 Seconds” on track called “Marty McFly” which is going to be released in a few weeks which is guaranteed to be buzz worthy. So tune in and get the radios on blast as you’ll be hearing a lot more from Mars Paris.

Who is N-Rimes?

I've had the pleasure of meeting N-Rimes in 2010 at a shopping mall where he was hard at work selling his mixtape to get his name out there; I was able to witness first hand how serious and determined he was. Let me tell you who N-Rimes is.

Born in Hamilton, ON and raised in neighborhoods throughout Toronto's west end, Aaron "N-Rimes" Burnett was exposed to many criminal activities in the Jane & Finch environment. However, he did grow up in a strict family-oriented household which kept him stable and away from crime. With all his free time he then grew to have a passion for Hip-Hop. Rimes started writing raps at the age of 11. His name originated from his passion for connecting with the masses and that's how he gave himself a sense of meaning as an artist. He referred to himself as the Nation's Rhymes because he felt like he could be a voice for the people. Later, he created an acronym R.I.M.E.S. which stands for "Rapping In Music Expressing Self"

He started making music more about his everyday life. In addition he never forgets to acknowledge others such as Big Pun who had a big influence on his rhyme scheme. Other influences include Cool G Rap, Nas, Cassidy and Dipset. Time went on, and through the ups and downs of his life he did not stop writing. Furthermore, N-Rimes continually progressed in mastering his craft of storytelling. One thing that never fails in every song that he's put out is his flow, creativity, plus his catchy hooks that can't be ignored.

Since 2009 N-Rimes has released 6 mixtapes including The N Of The Game Vol. 1, The N Of The Game Vol. 2, Dubs N 16s, The N Of The Game Vol. 3, Old School Meets New and The N Of The World. An impressive 20+ music videos have been released by N-Rimes including such hits as This Is Life, Reach For The $ky, Back In The Days 2010, and The Better. N-Rimes has also caught the attention of major international successes having opened for Slaughter House of Shady Records, Freeway, and Tyga of Young Money. He has also toured with Sean Kingston alongside Tory Lanez, and received official co-signs from the real Rick Ross and Legacy of New Boyz.

At 22, now residing in Florida, he's prepared to show the game his musical diversity. It might be hard to realize, but he is a whole lot more than JUST a rapper. Rimes proves his great versatility with his ability to produce instrumentals, write poetry as well as write songs for most genres of music.

Who is Sense?

I’ve been paying close attention to Sense for a while and if I could answer that question I’d say that he is a talented MC who is profoundly gifted with rhythm and words. Let me tell you more about Sense.

The artist known as Sense (Michael Bourne) is a Canadian born young man who livis ies in the Brampton part of the GTA but is originally from Edmonton Alberta.  Displaying his passion in music at an early age (5), Sense had engaged in singing at churches and weddings through the help of his parents. Through following his love for singing, Sense came across Hip hop thanks to his cousin and thus a new way to reflect and display emotion was found. He was intrigued and decided to combine his new love with his older singing talent and something special was created. That different style brought amazement to the hip hop fans in the GTA as they came across Sense’s music.    

Being so passionate about his love for music, Sense eventually dropped out of high school and with that drastic change, Sense really stepped into the music. Being so driven, Sense went and purchased studio equipment and learned how to engineer vocal audios and instrumentals, and through those efforts he was successful at getting airplay on 89.5 Project Bounce, a very popular at the time radio show. He was 18 at the time. Continually getting more hits on the radio show, dropping 8 mixtapes and 6 years later, Sense really gained notice from a 4 month old submission on 93.7 WBLK Unsigned Hype and got a response. He had received the opportunity to reach out to the American market, so he took action and didn’t let the chance go by. With the help of an assembled team of graphic designers, his manger, friends, and several talented local producers like Raj Tut and Nick Knox he made a promotional push that earned him a maximum allowed 5 week reign at the number one spot on the countdown with his song “Love or Hate me”.

Since then, Sense has had 3 more hit singles released, all going to number one, and in early 2010 Sense headed out to the second annual Unsigned Hype Awards in Buffalo, NY where he walked away with the “Hip Hop Artist Of The Year Award” for Canada . Excited about this newest phase in his life he knows he can’t slow down now as he keeps pressing on with a new mixtape series entitled “Lord of The Kings”, a much anticipated debut album release set for 2011, and probably one of the most interactive and entertaining live shows in the GTA. Sense intends on letting the world know that if you’re not already watching him…you should be.

On Sunday April 1st Sense will be performing live at an April fools show presented by 
Raw Dog Ent and MDB Ent. It will be a night filled with stand up comedy and music a complete entertainment experience. The show will be held at 9:00pm at Lambadina Lounge. Prices are $5 Guest list and $10 at the door. For more information visit this link http://www.facebook.com/events/365764560110821/
