Devontée - 'Real Rudebwoy (feat. Kardinal Offishall)" (Independent): Devontée (Cormier-Grubb) is a hip-hop artist and producer who is highly-regarded on the Toronto scene. On this new track and video, he collaborates with rap veteran Kardinal Offishall, and the Jamaican elements on the cut reflect Kardi's influence.
The eye-catching video is directed by Rami Accoumeh, and Devontée explains in a press release that "this video is about great vibes, and lots of culture, because that's what the Toronto I know is all about. That's what raised me, so I had to give that energy back to them!"
Devontée holds his own in trading verses with the ever-fluent Offishall, and the wordy cut is full of entertaining rhymes like "So kardi I ain't sorry pull up Harleys to your party Smoking Bob Marley with a girl that's acting naughty."
Devontée's 2015 album District Vibe featured his self-produced single “Bare Tings” and an assist by Joey Bada$$ on the single “Godspeed.” He has also collaborated with CJ Fly and produced for P Reign. Look for "Real Rudebwoy" to appear on his upcoming Head Gone album.
