More Or Les Pays Tribute To Canada’s Rap Scene | Ice Cold Buck Fifty | Single

As Canada celebrates 150 years, producer, DJ and rapper More or Les drops 100 consecutive bars paying tribute to the rappers and music makers of Canada’s vibrant indie scene.

“Producer, DJ and rapper More Or Les is back with a musical homage to Canadian Hip Hop, just in time for the 150th anniversary of the country. “Ice Cold Buck Fifty” is a 100 bars non-stop tribute to rappers and producers across the country, delivered in a mostly-chronological order of discovery for this Rap-fan-later-turned-rapper.

While many music enthusiasts may be familiar with names like Maestro Fresh Wes, Dream Warriors, K-OS and Shad, Les goes deep with his coverage of indie Canadian Hip Hop, citing possibly-less-familiar folks such as Jorun Bombay, Citizen Kane, The Grassroots, and his own crew, Backburner.”
