Dru Bex of Toronto-based label Role Model Records releases 6 Luv Vol. 1. The mixtape features the single “Christian Rappers 2016” as well as five additional songs showing off his creative genius and lyrical skills meanwhile representing the city he loves. Working with a collage of instrumentals from various producers including 9th Wonder, J Dilla and CHH artists including Json and Beautiful Eulogy he mixes hip hop with melodic elements to bring a unique sound to his audience. He brings his listeners along a tour of the city through his experience while spreading a message for positive change.
“Anyone who knows me knows my love for the city of my birth runs deep. It’s actually in the middle somewhere between my love for God and my love for Hip-Hop. With the mixtape I’m celebrating all three! I get to give people a sense of who God is to me and who He could be for the person listening. I get to show love to my City right around that special day that’s supposed to be all about love -haha- as well as during the All-Star Weekend when all eyes are on the 6. Finally, I get to honor hip hop by creating new songs over some of my favourite instrumentals, most of which are from my fellow rappers within the same sub-genre CHH (Christian Hip Hop). I hope the project is embraced by people at home as well as all around the world!” – Dru Bex
