After amassing a whopping 15 million total views on YouTube with high energy songs “Novacane” and “Canada Goose”, rising Toronto rapper Pressa flexes his versatility with his new laid-back single titled “No Love” – which is produced by Seattle’s own Chris Pack. Lyrically, Pressa sticks to his strong suit on this track, with bars regarding the benefits and hardships of both street life and growing fame. However, he opts for a more calm and stoic delivery than his aforementioned hits, making this track sound like an invitation to view his life for what it is, as opposed to a celebration to turn up to.
Pressa – “No Love”
If Pressa hasn’t popped up on your radar yet, it was only a matter of time before you heard about the Toronto MC. Although he’s been popping in his city and on the internet for some time now (see: “Wass Gang” and “Deadmihana”), last year he received a cosign that’s propelled the careers of many artists from local legends to international superstars. The cosign is from none other than the 6 God himself. Once Drake gave Pressa the opportunity to open up for him on the Boy Meets World Tour over in Europe, his position as next up out of Toronto was all but set in stone. Since then, Pressa has released multiple songs with fellow Toronto native Tory Lanez, both of which have garnered millions of plays on YouTube. Between his highly distinguishable voice, interesting use of patois and Toronto-slang, ability to deliver hard street bars in a variety of styles, support from major artists in his city, and an abundance of stories to tell that sound like they could be for a Hollywood script, Pressa is primed to make waves in the rap game for years to come. Bump his newest single “No Love” to get a taste of his versatility and be prepared for a new project coming out, also heavily produced by Chris Pack.
