Press Release

This isn’t just another mixtape. This isn’t any old .zip file. Hip-Hop Ain’t Dead It Lives In The North Volume 4 is a moment in time. Over 30 artists appear across 23 songs, all masterfully handled by DJ Dames Nellas who floods the market releasing Volume 4 only seven months after his Stylus Nominated Hip-Hop Ain’t Dead It Lives In The North Volume 3 broke ground.
Compiled from start to finish in less than 30 days, Volume 4 takes listeners on a journey to the many sides of hip-hop in Canada during late 2011. Introduced by a bold, poetic statement on hip-hop’s current state, the mixtape runs 23 records and features names like Drake, Kardinal Offishall, Shad, JD Era, Reema Major, Devon Tracey, Mayhem Morearty, JRDN and more than 30 others. Meek Mill, French Montana, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Freeway also play guest spots on some notable collaborations.
Comedian Trixx, who recently hosted Battle Of The Beatmakers as well as the 2011 Stylus DJ Awards, chimes in with a very outspoken interlude. The brutally honest sound bite continues a tradition of interludes on this mixtape series that aim to provoke conversation about the culture.
With executive production by It Lives In The North founder and co-owner Jonathon “Bizz”Brown, Volume 4 boasts a balanced blend of hip-hop’s best with hip hop’s next coming from Canada. The cover art was designed by STIRLING and special thanks go to Jesse Plunkett, Sunny Diamonds and Tim D.
