Polaris Music Prize-shortlisted rapper DijahSB today shares their latest body of work, the much-anticipated Tasty Raps Vol. 2 EP, produced by Clairmont the Second (fans at FADER, Complex, and more) alongside the blistering focus track, “I Feel Like Rihanna.” Listen to the innovative, free-form approach to genre and quick-witted depiction of the everyday life of a Black, non-binary artist on Tasty Raps Vol. 2, HERE.
On Tasty Raps Vol 2, we see a different sonic side to DijahSB, the long-awaited second installment of the EP series with the title aptly inspired by direct praise from Kid Cudi himself – who is also a major influence in Dijah’s work and drive to normalize rapping with honesty and raw emotion. On “I Feel Like Rhianna,” we get glitchy-but-effective percussion on a dreamy, swagger-dappled track. It’s tongue in cheek, as they rap about their experience with success, weighed against their ongoing struggles with mental health. Ever earnest and open about their struggles with depression, mental health, and financial instability, DijahSB balances their candid, frank storytelling with lyricism that’s always playfully dexterous; inspirational but never didactic.
Of Volume 2, Dijah shares, “Tasty Raps vol. 2 is a dream come true given it is entirely produced by Clairmont The Second. If you know him you know he’s very particular with who he works with so it is an honour to have an entire project done with him. I approach a different sound here, a lot of my newest fans know me for more of the dance vibe. I enjoy rapping over what I like to call head nodders.”
Today’s release follows a string of singles and collaborations with ZZ Ward on “Baby Don’t,” veggi on “EXEPTIONAL” + ‘Lisa Leslie,” Mick Jenkins on “Here to Dance” (whose previous work includes collaborations with the likes of KAYTRANADA, Disclosure, Noname, BADBADNOTGOOD, Ghostface Killah, EarthGang), and more, alongside the earlier 2022 The EP (ft. Keys N Krates, Terrell Morris).
DijahSB’s second full-length album Head Above the Waters delivered the Toronto artist to wider international attention, garnering praise from Clash, Gal-Dem, Fader, Complex, Exclaim, NPR Music, Consequence, OkayPlayer and more. Alongside their Polaris Music Prize nomination, 2021 also saw the emcee named as a finalist for the 2021 SOCAN Songwriting Prize, Canada’s only publicly-voted major songwriting award, for the single “Frontin’ Like Pharrell” from their debut LP, 2020 The Album. With tens of thousands of listeners across streaming platforms and features on popular Spotify playlists including Northern Bars, Fresh Finds, and Fresh Finds Hip Hop, Dijah’s music has also been featured on Hulu’s Single Drunk Female and Crush, Netflix’s Survival of the Thickest, amongst ads for Google, Android, and Crown Royal Whiskey. For those wondering: yes, this is the beginning of a new era for DijahSB.
