The latest single off Canadian rapper Haviah Mighty's new mixtape, Stock Exchange, is "Avocado." "Finding that true inner confidence has come with a lot of introspection over the past year," she says. "Unlike before when I appeared confident on the outside but had many insecurities, I feel my confidence is now much more rooted to my internal core." Grandtheft who produced the song, says, "2oolman (from Halluci Nation / A Tribe Called Red) put me onto Haviah’s music and I was instantly a fan. There is this side to her as an artist that reminds me of Lauryn Hill - she can rap the most lyrical verses and still sing a perfect hook. I wanted to feature this when we worked together."

HOMEBOY SANDMAN - "NO BEEF"

Homeboy Sandman's Anjelitu EP, produced by Aesop Rock, is out August 6 and here's another track from it. The song was inspired by his decision to go vegan. "I had psoriasis all over my body. It was driving me crazy. I asked the doctor 'could it be something I’m eating?' She looked me dead in the eye, straight faced, 'food has nothing to do with it.' Thank God for the intuition to disregard her 'treatment plan' intended to make me a lifetime customer of the medical industry. Year and a half after removing all meat and dairy from my diet my skin is completely clear. I met a dude who told me he cured his diabetes eating plants. I talked to a guy just the other day who told me he cured his mother’s cancer. It’s all in The China Study you should read that. I’m not saying everybody is the same. I’m just saying my doctor straight lied to me. Now that’s true, that’s why I never have no beef."
