high school was also when I found out about Detroit underground rappers like Elzhi and Black Milk, thanks to this one dude in my classes (I don't remember his name) who was into underground hiphop

pretty sure this dude introduced me to a while new world of hiphop and I don't even remember his name lol

I've known about Curren$y since my high school days but I never could get into his style back then

but nowadays its more my speed

like if you go back 10 years to Curren$y's EP Covert Coup which was produced entirely by The Alchemist

the beats there hit harder but not too much harder

the best way I can describe The Alchemist's production is moody and atmospheric...he is always creating a very specific vibe and his use of samples to that effect is incredible too

and his production tends to lean towards more mellow, softer sounds these days but he is versatile

Boldy James' laid back delivery works really well with The Alchemist's usual style of production

just perfect match between the rapper and the producer

The Price Of Tea In China is legit one of my top albums of 2020

Real Bad Boldy was really good too

Groups like the Encampment Support Network (encampmentsupportnetwork.com/) have sprung up to support encampments and meet people's needs, as the city is not providing water, sanitation, etc. They also organize actions like this.

This is just the latest in a long series of increasingly (para)militarized and violent encampment clearings. One at Trinity-Bellwoods was widely reported on: thestar.com/opinion/contributo

Since nothing going on right now, story (thestar.com/news/gta/2021/07/2) and some background:

Toronto's shelter system is perennially underfunded, above capacity, and unsafe, and the actually affordable/supportive housing supply is dwindling. since the pandemic started, many ppl have taken to living outside in tents instead. The City has responded by cracking down on encampments, suing a maker of tiny shelters, etc. +
