iSH is a rapper we’ve been following since his May release of mixtape “The Name is iSH” (If you missed it, click here). Well now iSH is taking the success of that first release to fuel his upcoming album entitled “The First Impression” and down below you can find the video for the album’s first single – Priceless. It’s a new look for iSH, a mostly pop song sounding like something off the radio in summer – but skip to the 2:17 mark and you’ll find the same hard rhymer ¬†as featured on “The Name is iSH.” This upcomer is electrifying and you gotta love his smile – wait, is this kid actually having fun WHILE creating a career in the music business? The video is fitting for such a feel good track, filmed in the Cayman Islands and directed by Grandson & Son.

Sure, a mixtape is just a mixtape, stuck somewhere in between messing around in the studio and a full-blown album, lacking the polished production and hard-hitting rhmyes. But every once in a while, there comes a mixtape that is seamless, with no filler tracks and constant nosebleed material… meet iSH. “The Name is iSH” is the first release by this Toronto native, but do not expect it to be the last you hear of him. The tape consists of both popular instrumentals and iSH originals, creating a comprehensive showcase of just what this kid is capable of. Personally, my favorite is the title track, but I honestly suggest downloading the tape in its entirety here. Oh, and be sure to check out his newly released visuals from the track “Hustle To Be Free”… creative.
