Colin Munroe - Unsung Hero

Posted 4 years ago

Colin Munroe has long considered himself an Unsung Hero in the music game, and for good reason: the Ontario-repping singer, songwriter and producer's spent the last several years just under the national radar, creating some of the dopest, most innovative work the music industry has seen in a minute. With today's release of his latest street album via Karmaloop, however, he's well on his way to getting the attention he deserves. A genre-blending melange of hip-hop, pop, rock, R&B and electronic influences, the project comes on the heels of much-buzzed-about singles "Over It," "Your Eyes" and "Invincible," and features an appropriately eclectic slate of guest artists, including Ab-Soul, Cassie, Kendrick Lamar, K.Flay, Memoryhouse and Pusha T. In addition to Munroe's own production, Unsung Hero packs boardwork by Boi-1da & D10, RZA and more.
