It's all about Toronto on this new collaboration.


You may remember Sha Hustle from his appearance on Roy Woods' 2014 track "Murda" with DeJ Loaf. On Saturday night's episode of OVO Sound Radio, Roy shared both a new collaboration with Rich The Kid and a new record with Sha Hustle. "City" is rounded out by Rodzilla for an all-Toronto record with an instrumental reminiscent of Ajax, Ontario's T-Minus. A loose, half-sung hook illustrates both the gritty realities of Toronto and the creative boom that's happening in the music scene. 

The track follows Sha Hustle's Running Man EP released earlier this year and currently available for stream on his SoundCloud. As for Wood$, he's getting ready to release his next project Say Less, which is currently slated to arrive "soon." The rapper and singer released his debut full-length Waking at Dawn last summer through OVO Sound. Say Less is one of three imminent releases from the label alongside PARTYNEXTDOOR's Club Atlantis and dvsn's The Morning After. On Roy's "Say Less" freestyle released in July, he rapped "‘Bout to put my album out / Say Less, yeah it’s coming out / PARTY just copped a new house / Drake won like 13 Billboards at the Billboards, wow." He's already put up a Billboard in Toronto's Dundas Square to promote the album as well.

Listen to Roy's "New New," also released on Saturday night's episode of OVO Sound Radio, here.

When he first broke in 2014, we spoke to Roy Woods about his come-up the mix of R&B and rap he does so well. "I've been singing since I was 12. So I'd consider myself a singer, but I do love to rap," he said. "I've been freestyling since I was around 14 when I used to go to the YMCA Downtown in Brampton every Saturday night, and I started dropping music when I was 16."

Quotable Lyrics:

N*gga, I've been grindin'
Trynna make it for my city
So if I'm been sending shots
Then all my n*ggas shooting with me
They all 'bout it now
