Toronto, ON – Here is the debut mixtape from Ablyss titled Hear Me Out. After putting in the time and encountering a few setbacks this release couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time. The 13-track (2 bonus tracks) project features real life encounters and depiction of life through the eyes of the young artist, his experiences with relationships and the effects drugs have on society. When listening to this project you’ll hear honest and thought-provoking lyrics, along with soothing melodies and the majestic voice of Toya Diamond featured on track 7. Every artist has something to say, not every artist has a message, “Hear Me Out”. Stream and download the mixtape after the jump. - Natasha of Hiphop canada

Toronto rapper Ablyss is sure to be a name that local hip-hop fans will be familiar with in the near future. The budding talent has been hard at work behind the scenes and is now ready for the spotlight as he anticipates his upcoming mixtape Hear Me Out and will be performing at Toronto’s premiere hip-hop monthly The Big Ticket this Friday, March 8, at the Velvet Underground, along with many other notable local artists. With compelling visuals to accompany his buzz singles “Hallucination” and “The Intro”, Ablyss is ready to prove that he can transfer his complexity on stage, in hopes to secure a respected position in the Toronto hip-hop scene.
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST ABOUT PERFORMING AT THIS MONTH’S BIG TICKET? From when I went before, the crowd seemed really cool, they seemed really into it, so I’m looking forward to interacting with the crowd, giving them some bars and giving them a good show and enjoying myself.

WHAT CAN THOSE WHO CATCH YOUR SET EXPECT FROM IT? It’s going to be really good; first and foremost, as far as the energy that I bring, the energy alone will be different from how other artists are performing. I feel like what I am giving them, they can hear and feel my words [and] the message that I’m trying to give.
I’m a person that has so many sides. I think we all have different sides and I want them to catch a feeling and say, ‘I relate to that.’
SPEAKING OF MESSAGE, WHAT DO YOU WANT THE CROWD TO TAKE AWAY FROM YOUR PERFORMANCE? I want them to just understand that no one is just one way. There are different dimensions to everything, so I just want them to understand that I don’t only talk about one thing. I’m a person that has so many sides. I think we all have different sides and I want them to catch a feeling and say, ‘I relate to that.’ We’re all different and we all go through different things. I’m just trying to embody everything we all go through in my music and in my show.
WHERE WOULD YOU SAY YOUR PLACE IS IN THE TORONTO HIP-HOP SCENE? Right now, I’m still building my name so obviously [the Big Ticket] opportunity is much appreciated. But people are going to catch on to what I’m trying to do with my music and they are going to know my name. I’m making my way up and they’ll see that too when they hear the new mixtape, Hear Me Out.

I watched two of his videos, “The Intro” and “Hallucinations”, and its safe to say his music caught my attention. Now, I came across his newly dropped project entitled “Hear Me Out” and I have to say this mixtape is great. There is at least one or two tracks on here that everyone can relate to. So make sure you guys support and listen to this project. You won’t regret it. - City on Clouds
