Cut and Mixed by DJ IV
Recorded by Fresh Kils

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Solid Mas has emerged as a force to reckon with. Mixed and cut by Halifax’s DJ IV, The Show Off Mixtape, really is a show off of all that Mas has to offer, and you will be impressed. Standing 22 tracks long, this is a true mixtape. It starts off with a message on “Grapevine,” which makes good use of Marvin Gaye’s classic. On “Legacy,” “Criminology Rap,” “Save Your Soul” and “Keep It Real” it’s glaringly obvious that this guy is angry but his observations about life, hip-hop, and human behaviour are as entertaining as the beats of each track. “Ride On (featuring Amy E)” and “Child Lost” are two standout tracks with their hard rocking beats, clever rhyming and conscious lyrics. When people ask the question, what does Canadian hip-hop sound like? With albums like this one, you can now point them in the direction of Solid Mas. Seriously, this dude’s got mad skills. Another point to mention is the scratching on this disc; a lot of mainstream hip-hop album’s don’t use it as they used to, but here, Mas gives it just enough love.
