I’ve always really enjoyed Canadian hip-hop, and the latest MC I’ve heard of, D.O. (Defy the Odds), is no exception. Canadian hip-hop always sounds fun to me – verses are often about how proud they are to be from their country, what its like to be to be the northern neighbor of us/the U.S, and their experiences growing up. My favorite Canadian rappers/groups include DL Incognito, Classified, Sweatshop Union, and Shad to name a few. Anyway, back to D.O, who hails from Ontario, and records as a solo artist as well as part of the duo Art of Fresh. Upon further research, I just discovered he interestingly enough set a Guinness World Record for the longest freestyle rap ever,  free styling for 8 hours and 45 minutes straight. While the quantity of bars he can spit is impressed, I am more impressed by the quality – exemplified in this track “Now I Understand” featuring White Mic on the chorus and a guess verse from Canadian hip-hop royalty, Classified himself.  Video below, download here.
