Release Date: February 9, 2018
I have been watching Robbie G climb to the top in Canadian Hip-Hop and his latest release, FIRE brings the heat we all have been waiting for. With collaborations from Evil Ebenezer, Mansuki, Metri, Prada West, Missy Knott and the lovely vocalist Emmaline.
“When I See You” is a top track on this album. It takes us deep within Robbie G’s love for his recently passed StepMom Margaret Gruenbauer and it’s all about missing her and wanting her to see his rise to success. He’s living his dreams and he’s getting through everything in life as she wanted him to do. It’s a dedication song with Missy Knott’s beautiful voice singing the hooks.
The second track “Do What You Do” is a strong leadoff on the album with Evil Ebenezer killing the hooks and throwing in a few crazy bars for the haters out there. Production is tight and after listening to this song you will start singing the hook to yourself.
Next up, we have “Incredible” featuring Mansuki on the vocals. This track is all about erasing the past and moving forward. Being surrounded by that team that doesn’t cut corners and always lifts you to the next level, where you need to be. This track has a nice beat mixed in with a little R&B to chill to.
“House Party” is definitely one of my favourites, featuring Metri on the hooks. This song is a “hype” song that possesses high energy. It’s all about eliminating the club visits and just having a good ol’ house party.
From the west coast we have Prada West featured on “Reach My Peak”. This track is all about reaching the top and standing at the top of the peak of your career looking down on all the trials and tribulations and people who didn’t believe in you.
“Time” has a really dope sound to it. Not to mention, Australia’s Emmaline brings some amazing vocals to the plate with her dark and deep soothing voice.
Robbie G has worked tirelessly in the Guelph hip-hop scene and deserves to be recognized for it. He has branded himself into a hard-hitting movement with countless albums and a boatload of shows.
Inspirational Interviewer and Promotional music lover for artists.
Born in Kingston, I grew up with the likes of Dan Akroyd and his blues influence and also The Tragically Hip, plus live shows downtown in the streets and country bands in the pubs.
I love music in all forms and genres. I can adapt my ear to enjoy and appreciate all instrumentals and vocals. I started writing about certain artists that I grew up listening to and then I reached out to artists for interviews. I have done over 20 interviews with artists and CEOs of industry companies from all over the world.
Now, with Canadian Beats I have an opportunity to improve my journalistic abilities and to get the word out there for artists, and best of all to go to shows and get that personal feeling. I get to represent Canadian music on a higher level. We need to open more doors and have more shows and venues, as well as get the world to come to us. That is my goal.
