J. Dohe – Lounge Chair [Album Stream]

J. Dohe is a rapper from Vancouver who I’ve been able to kick it with on a few occasions through a mutual friend. He’s been heavily active as of late with the release of two albums in 2014 (Lounge Chair and Colour Television) and opening up for a shit load of names you probably heard of in and around the Van City/BC/Van Isle areas.

I wanted to salute the homie for his hard work and put the Spliff Breaks audience onto one of the artists in Vancouver you should keep your eye on in 2015 (with a flow somewhat, yet obvs unintentionally, reminiscent of the homie Jeff Spec). With that being said, stream his Lounge Chair record below and head over to his SoundCloud page for more music by J. Dohe.

Luckyiam – Supreme ft. Claire Mortifee [prod. Eligh]

One of my favourite singers in Van City links up with a LA Living Legend (literally) in Luckyiam on the song Supreme (produced by Eligh). This tune is an ode to that special lady in your life.. and maybe that relationship ended about as abruptly as the end of this song does.. (great track, but who cut the beat?)
