While RMG artist, lyrical specialist and Lecrae hype man Canon released his debut album Mad Haven last year, he was already a familiar name to many in Christian Hip Hop long before the project entered our ears. Canon first gained widespread genre recognition from his critically-acclaimed 2011 mixtape Blind World. The collection of songs, sparked by the first single “10 Toes Deep”, featured a mixture of beats that showed off his signature staccato flow and highlighted his inspiring journey of sanctification. Not to mention also featuring the song “Good to Go”, featuring some of the fastest lyrical delivery ever recorded. Blind World introduced Canon to his broad audience and displayed that he’s not just a lyricist but an artist. For that, and being one of Rapzilla's most downloaded free projects to date, the mixtape is worthy of Throwback Thursday shout out.
In September of 2013, Andy Mineo, Reach Records and Rapzilla teamed up to bring a remix competition to you like we never have before. The challenge and opportunity was to remix any song on one of our scene's highest selling albums, Andy's debut album Heroes For Sale. Reach Records gave the instrumentals and stems for the tracks and the result was over 1,000 submissions.
