Toronto emcee Tona just won a Stylus award for video of the year for this one...dope track with hard hitting bars and a banging beat produced by Rich Kidd. On some futuristic steez!

New Single: Bad Newz - Find Your Way feat. Imogen Heap


Finally a new, anticipated single from the talented Toronto emcee Bad Newz off his upcoming mixtape, Dirty English. Lovely vocals also supplied by Imogen Heap, produced by Sin. The mixtape should be quite dope if it keeps up to par with this track:


"Find Your Way" is Toronto emcee Bad Newz's debut single from his first full-length mixtape Dirty English. Featuring the voice of British electronic/pop sensation Imogen Heap, it's a different approach for the boastful lyricist with the cocky internal rhyme flow. He visits new topics of love and self-doubt alongside Heap's silky vocals and producer Sin's layers of boom-bap, never abandoning his classic, complex delivery.
