Rapper ex-rapper, Muneshine has quickly followed up December’s announcement with a free remixed version of There Is Only Today. It feels like a much more laid-back version of his 2012 album with most producers dialling down the original’s triumphant sound that’s definitely worth picking up.

So here it is. Our final part of our Best of 2012 coverage concludes with our top 50 tracks of the year. I’ll avoid the clichés, but this has been a tough list to put together and a special thanks to everyone who produced great music throughout the year for making it tough. It’s been fun.
We’ve still got our guestlists for 2012, which will be coming up each day this week and then we’ll be returning to regular goodness. But for now, enjoy the end of the year with our Top 50 Tracks of 2012.
Shortly after releasing Jonestown 3: The Dream Is Over, D-Sisive & Muneshine have announced an intention to quit hip-hop. The video above, has the Canadian duo share details on that recent release before sounding burnt out on their current situation and stature inside hip-hop. The interview concludes them announcing that Jonestown 3 will be their final album as hip-hop artists.
However, they do seem very careful to state that they’re leaving hip-hop and not music. I’d be surprised if this is the last we hear of them.
Regardless, they would be a great loss to the hip-hop scene, in fact the video for “Westcoast” was the first post we ever made on Lesson Six. It’s undeniable that D-Sisive and Muneshine are both standout artists in a healthy Canadian Hip-Hop scene, it would be a shame to lose them in such a manner. They, along with a lot of other artists we that we feature on the site, don’t get enough credit outside of niché circles and I could totally understand, in this situation, why you would feel as burnt out as they sound here.
Seeing as we’ve spent most of this week plugging a Canadian artist, it would be unfair to have our Canadian love stop at Wordburglar. So here’s the video for “Lower Level” off of Muneshine’s recently released, and decent, album There Is Only Today. Although we haven’t had a chance to review it, it’s a great boom-bap album backed with that cliché-free.
With his new album There is Only Today just around the corner Saskatoon Hip-Hop extraordinaire, gave us a sneak peak ahead of the 29th May release date. The highlight being one of two collaboration with Lesson Six favourite D-Sisive. On “Starter Jacket” Mune & D share tales of long-been Christmas stories over a soulful beat that doesn’t reak of December.
Muneshine just dropped his latest dropped the first track off his upcoming solo release, There is Only Today, and it’s filled with epic. Muneshine gets fierce and referential over a packed, multi-instrument filled beat that just sounds like win. One release we’ll be look out for in the upcoming months.
Regular readers will know of Lesson Six’s love of the Canadian scene right now as there’s so much good stuff coming from a select group of prolific artists. This video shares a bit of history while showcasing some of the new talent. The best part is at the end when artists like Shad, D-sisive, Muneshine and Buck 65 share some of their work in a laid back fashion. Shame Abdominal wasn’t there too, as not only is he a Canuck but his album features on the cover montage.
The energetic video doesn’t really work with Muneshine’s more laid-back production. Decent remix though.
