It would appear as though Canada will be producing some big name musicians in the coming years. Normally you don't get a lot of news or fame from the bordering country, but it seems that there are a lot of nice gems that have started making some big noise in the music industry. Like Drake, Colin Munroe has recently gained a ton of publicity and has recently been featured on a very solid track off of Izza Kizza's most recent mixtape entitled, "Connect the Dots". Munroe has gotten a lot of rep and popularity via his take on Kanye Wests' hit song, "Flashing Lights". His music video and version of the song have gotten a ton of play time on many sites, television shows, and has been passed along by word of mouth. It is truly impressive how some young musicians get their start, it seems almost like every young musician now a day gets into the music game in a different way.
Colin Munroe, unlike many of the young musicians in this group, has a sound that is truly unique and special. I don't think I have ever heard music such as his, it combines a lot of "Pop" sounds and all the while has some Rock, R&B, and Hip-Hop thrown in there with it. It is a very unique mix, and his voice is well suited for it. I mean if I had to sum up his genre and style, it would be Pop with a mix of Hip-Hop. He is a very versatile musician, mainly because he has the ability to sing, rap, and his lyrical flow is very solid. A little while back, he put out a mixtape entitled, Colin Munroe is the Unsung Hero. I had never heard of this young musician before, and a friend of mine turned me on to his mixtape. Dudes got talent, enough said... Well I guess it is not, "enough said," because I got a whole lot more to say about this guy!
Now I don't know what this dudes plans are for his future musical career, but the track listing on his mixtape is just plain crazy! The mixtape features some big name musicians, and is something that at the time I got it, was bumpin' on my car radio on a regular basis (now I put it on every now and then, depends on what type of mood I am in!). On the tape, Munroe features some solid musicians such as, Joell Ortiz, up and comer Mickey Factz, fellow Canadian native Drake, Izza Kizza, MIMS, and up and comer Novel (who is the man!). Anyway, you can tell that this young guy has the makings of becoming someone great, and I promise you that if you give the guys music a listen, you'll fall in love with it!
Colin Munroe is someone you all should be keeping an eye on as '09 rolls on. I don't really know if he is putting out an LP this year, but from what I have gathered, he is planning on releasing another mixtape. If you haven't heard of Colin Munroe yet, then you better get on the train and go along for the ride, because this young man has a very great musical career that will for sure be filled with hit tunes and solid tracks for many years to come.
