#GuelphMusicClub has a pulse!
It has been a favourite of mine since its creation and I welcome its return.
There appear to be some new names involved since the last go-round and that’s great to see as well!

Now, I think the parameters for the #GuelphMusicClub‘s take on this topic have been expanded to allow for songs that have been personally discovered within the calendar year of 2014.
For myself, though, I felt there were enough AMAZING tracks from this year that choosing five would be a breeze.
Let me tell you, my no. 5 pick is no exception.
Please note that when I say amazing, I am speaking in the broadest sense of the word here.
But make no mistake – the song I have chosen is fucking spectacular.
I got an AK-47 on my face, ho. So you know I don’t shoot no piss toe. – Stitches, “Brick in Yo Face”
A cold ass beat.
Some dude lookin’ like the result of the Joker banging a juggalo.
And the soulless glorification of cocaine.
All the ingredients for a hit viral smash!
This is the definition of your internet-age one-hit-wonder.
Although, to be fair, this song was equally entertaining, if you ask me:
I send it. You receive it. – Stitches, “Mail”
This one shows the more vulnerable side of Stitches.
The introspective drug dealer, if you will.
The one who has your girl on his pole.
Coke rap has been around for a minute but this guy is a straight up cartoon.
I feel like he may even be a pioneer of sorts.
Like, I imagine this corny yt record exec watching “Brick in Yo Face” and thinking about how he needs to repackage it for the streets.
And then coming up with this:
Baking soda! I got baking soda!! – O.T. Genasis, “CoCo”
So thanks for everything, Stitches.
Thanks for being you.
And thanks for being my number five of 2014.
