Lou Phelps: Come Inside (feat. Jazz Cartier)

Lou Phelps - "Come Inside- feat. Jazz Cartier" (Last Gang): This highly touted Montreal MC gets an assist from Toronto's hottest young hip-hop artist, Jazz Cartier, on this sparkling new single.


Phelps' fluid flow is set atop a cool funky beat, and things kick up a notch when Cartier chimes in with his contribution. The result is a tune with a fun vibe, one a mite evocative of A Tribe Called Quest. Providing very smart production touches is the Polaris-winning Kaytranada.

The track is neatly matched by a video clip in which Phelps falls asleep while watching TV, dreaming that he hosts a late-night talk show. Initially a pleasantly odd experience, the vibe grows sinister when the characters on TV start interacting with Lou, staring daggers, dancing, and eventually growing violent.

Long a favourite on the Montreal scene, Phelps is known for club-rap bangers. He started out with older brother Kevin (aka Kaytranada) in rap group The Celestics. 001: Experiments, last year's debut project, has racked up over 1 million plays on SoundCloud, and it received a recent Juno nomination as Rap Recording of the Year.
