Published May 14, 2015Haligonian producer Ryan Hemsworth is best known for his shimmering, pop-inflected dance tracks, but he's opted to pump out the hip-hop jams on his latest tour and mixtape.
The artist has teamed up with Montreal hero Tommy Kruise for a new mix and tour. The Just Rap Tour, along with its Just Rap Mix counterpart, offer exactly what their names promise as these two bust out some seriously hot rap tracks.
Of the project, Hemsworth offered the following statement to clothing brand Frank & Oak, who debuted the mix:
The tour I have coming up in June with Tommy Kruise is going to be mostly rap, with surprise guests at most of the shows. I wanted to have a fun tour, just hit some of my favourite cities as the weather is getting nice and people are finishing up school. I'm in a good mood right now. It's sunny out this is the type of shit you should drive around and listen to when you're feeling good. I also just wanted to introduce people to some different rappers. Tommy helped me with the selection as well because he knows every good rap song.
The Just Rap Mix features heaters from Gucci Mane, Fetty Wap, Playboi Carti, Future, Chief Keef, Gunplay, Main Attrakionz, Young Thug and many others. The 41-minute playlist can be streamed in full below.
