Free Download | 1000 - P. Reign
Drake’s label OVO has received a lot of criticism in the past. Noisey’s parent company VICE went as far to call the label a “hit factory” for their front man, and a virtual death trap for talented artist’s careers. The fact is, the company might use it’s signees to boost Drizzy’s record sales, but the artists are also getting access to some of the best equipment and largest networks in the music industry to date, and their material doesn’t seem to be suffering at all.
P. Reign is one of the label’s best investments to date, and if you haven’t heard of him before I highly suggest you go check out some of his older material. The Toronto-based MC hasn’t released any new material since his project Off The Books dropped back in December, but I couldn’t think of a better way for him to come back into the game than with a track titled ‘1000’.
The Bass Line instrumental is a very Canada-rap style creation; ambient keys, crisp drum sequences, and the distinctly auto-tuned vocals. The delivery is aggressive, the lyrics are quotable, and the beat is fat and hypnotic. Check it out and give P. Reign a follow on Soundcloud and Twitter if you like what you hear.
