Toronto singer Colin Munroe is no stranger to the Hip-Hop scene, having built some of his initial buzz from a remake of Kanye West’s “Flashing Lights” that he did a few years ago. Since then, he’s periodically popped up on hook duty for a number of rappers, including Kendrick Lamar (“No Make-Up”), who returns the favor on “Scars N Stars.”
The track, which also features Kendrick’s Black Hippy cohort Ab-Soul, is just one of several notable collabos on Munroe’s new project, Unsung Hero. In addition to boasting guest spots from Pusha T and Cassie, the tape brings together Toronto dream pop duo Memoryhouse with none other than the RZA on “Invincible,” a team-up that should prove interesting at the very least.
Is Munroe onto something with his brand of experimental alt. rock, or has he just been listening to too much Radiohead? There’s no better way to find out than to stream and download Unsung Hero in its entirety here to get a better idea.
