Published May 01, 2012If you were looking for a vast cross-section of current Canadian West Coast hip-hop notables, you might want to check out media production group Team Heartbreak's newly launched Pacific Pressure mixtape. The 27-song juggernaut, hosted by Rascalz vet Red1 and mixed by DJ K-Rec, brings together both vets and young upstarts alike.
You can stream the whole thing down below, from the roots reggae-sampling "Just Is" from Red1 and Joose, to the playfully smoothed-out "Get Up" from the hardworking Indigo Kids, to a new cut from Moka Only and Evil Ebenezer's ZZBRA project.
You can download the mixtape here on Bandcamp with the option to donate funds to the Battered Women's Support Services, a non-profit that has been providing training and education programs to end violence against girls and women for over 30 years. All proceeds from the release will go to the BWSS.
