That’s my Jam: Gurl – kⓘяvy

Folks. It is -23 outside but it feel like -33. It’s been like this for the past four days and will continue to be so till Sunday (Apparently). I still had to haul my butt to school and work and back everyday. I don’t have a man warming up my sheets and I could really use an upgrade on my mittens but I ain’t got no dough. All this to say I was in neeeed of something to help me get out of bed this morning with a smile on my face. Luckily for me there’s a wonderful Soul Shaolin from the Philippines who thought i needed some help to. I present to you the 1min 13 second track that opened my heart and made it possible for me to go on with this day. I wish you all a great one Xo -MF

Say Word Radio // Ladies First

Hey Fam!

Ok so this was a super special episode that I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now and since I only have 4 more episodes left to do ON AIR before Say Word goes on a 8 month hiatus (I’ll still be podcasting once a month no worries) I figured it was a perfect opportunity to present to you one of the main pillars in the Montreal Music Scene… drum roll please.. LADIES!!! I was inspired by the wonderful Do my ladies run this event that J2K and Head and Hands held on August 3rd. The entire two hours was dedicated to female artists of this city. They continually impress me s I hope you guys enjoy!

NB: For some reason the archiver cut me off while I was saying my salutations and stuff but basically I was saying how much I love you guys, will miss you and that I dedicate ‘Run Away’ – Georgia Anne Muldrow to all my ladies out there who are thinking about letting out their creative side for the world to see.

P.s: YO! Can you guys pleeeeeease find my a female producer from Montreal (Hip Hopish) .. inbox me at saywordmtl@gmail.com
