Mixtape: Cityreal and Wes Mackey - "Good Morning Blues"
Cityreal: "Just a few months after the release of my debut solo album, The Beginning¸ it was nominated for the Western Canadian Music Award for Rap Recording of the Year. Since its release, I’ve been relentlessly touring across Canada, the United States, and France, doing over 100 shows and having shared stages with Ice Cube, Three 6 Mafia, Warren G, Dilated Peoples, Souls of Mischief, Swollen Members, Kurupt, Saigon, and many more. Both “The Beginning” and “Good Morning Blues” are entirely self-produced. I’ve also recently produced several songs for Madchild’s and D-Sisive’s forthcoming solo albums as well as many other artists. Furthermore, I recently received several grants from FACTOR (the Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent On Recordings)."
"Good Morning Blues features a lot of samples and interpolations from the early originators of the blues such as Robert Johnson and Leadbelly. The official download link is http://cityreal.bandcamp.com/ and the project is a free download."
