"Drew Howard's "You're Not My Mans" Is A Crew Anthem For All Seasons"

I found Drew Howard's "You're Not My Mans" in the bowels of a friend's Facebook event invitation, and almost booked a flight to Toronto just so I could mob with my homies to the crew anthem. The Alexonweed-produced track comes from Drew's recently released 88camino.com EP, and it's the project's standout by a mile. The shadowy, plodding beat and Drew's sing-song-y flow, which will no doubt call comparisons to Toronto's dark and melodic post-OVO sound, remind me of the first time I heard Dej Loaf's "Try Me." Drew's lyrics aren't quite as menacing as Lil Loaf's, but his marble-mouthed delivery is irresistible—I just paper cut my hands/ I know a band-aid won't heal a bullet wound. Listen below, and check out the rest of 88camino.com on Soundcloud. And hit 88camino.com to play a dope first-person video game where you can coast through different landscapes in a red Chevy, ostensibly Drew's car of choice.

If you’re paying attention to the rap music coming out of Toronto that isn’t cosigned by the golden owl of OVO, there's a chance you've heard of Get Home Safe. The collective was featured heavily in The Weeknd’s video for “King of the Fall” and consists of three main players: Derek Wise, the menacing rapper trapped in the body of a linebacker; Jazz Cartier, the enigmatic character with a Napoleon complex who barks and squeals his way through verses; and Drew Howard, the final piece of the puzzle who, up until a few weeks ago, had remained silent. Drew’s first offering in years was “Uncle Tona”, a song that’s so carefree and loose, you don’t even notice that the lyrics about "cheetahs and bald eagles" are nonsense until you start to deconstruct them. The video proved to be as whimsical as the song itself, as it showcased Drew participating in activities around Toronto’s Kensington Market neighbourhood such as riding around in a rickshaw, dancing with friends in an alleyway, and completing a quest to the Chinese gift shop. It was an entertaining video with a cohesive theme, but it was also a marked departure away from the grizzly and dark aesthetic of the videos we’ve seen from Drew’s fellow Get Home Safe members, feeling more like a daydream than the spastic nightmare sounds of Derek Wise’s “Awkward” or Jazz Cartier’s “Switch”.

"Premiere: Watch Drew Howard's "Uncle Tona" Video"

In the video directed by Tristan C-M, Howard travels around the city on an adventure that is highlighted with well-timed slow motion shots and works along perfectly with the mellow, yet slightly haunting track that showcases Howard's vast range of talent from rapping to singing. This song is set to land on Howard's upcoming album, Drive, the Valley of Dissipation, which he is planning to drop sometime in the fall or early winter, though he has not yet set a concrete date. Along with the video, Drew has made the song available to stream, which you can do below. - Complex


Still working on that hot first release.
