I’m Rel McCoy (FKA Relic The Oddity) My friends call me Rel.
Check Tha Resume
I’ve toured Australia, Japan, the U.S, and Canada coast to coast numerous times. I’ve played amazing festivals, like SXSW and the Pan Am games, and I’ve met and opened shows with some of my favourite artists, including The Pharcyde, Slaughterhouse, Jeru Tha Damaja, Masta Ace, Zion-I, Araab Muzik, and more.
But yo, I want to send you an autographed CD of one of my full length albums for free.
And to be straight up, it’s “pay what you want” - so you can pay more if you like
but $0 is completely cool too. 👊🏼
Buuut…wait, what is really up with this tho?
An old favourite show of mine Cheers said it best..
Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got.
Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot.
Wouldn’t you like to get away??…
Life is crazy. I escape into music. It helps me process the the highs and lows
and just deal with the everyday. It keeps me out of trouble.
I make music that I feel, and if I’m keeping it 100 with you… I do it for me.
but... yet and still I know it’s not just for me. Know what I mean?
If I can be that escape for someone else, that's real dope to me.
I drew a blank
I’m usually inspired by my surroundings. I was touring a lot, spending a ton of time on the road, and the days began to blur together. I was so exhausted and uninspired. The music I was hearing wasn’t inspiring me at all. Something was missing.
I had to start on a new album
I was on my way to see my great producer friend Fresh Kils at his apartment studio in Toronto, and that’s when it dawned on me! The elevator I was going up in was missing the 13 button. I knew I had to make a record that would fill in the musical blank I was experiencing...
That’s where this CD title came from: The 13th Floor
Bros for life
That right there is me and my guy Fresh Kils. This guy has a set of technical skills and an ear for sounds and samples like I have never seen before. I knew when we first spoke that we would build a lasting friendship. The kind that stands the test of time. The sounds he provided were nothing short of stellar. To this day he tells me that I took all of his best beats for The 13th Floor album 😂🙌🏼
Art therapy for you… and me both
I’m a full time artist making moves with no label and with my own funds, which if I’m being real, is exactly how I like it. Complete creative control, so I can do what I love. And, as it turns out, the core what I love is hiphop and connecting with people. You know? Doing what you love to do can be the most cathartic, encouraging thing you can do with your life. So the music really is therapy.
Whuts the matter
Subject matter in my songs varies just as much as my experiences do from day to day. I don’t really go much for the “these are all the cool things that I have that you don’t” type raps. I also try to avoid the corniness; I just do me. From substance abuse, to my regret of bullying a kid at school, to more triumphant songs and others that are just fun with wordplay, I love to run the gamut of feels. I’ll meet you on the mountain top, and in the valley just the same. We on this ride of life together, and I provide a little theme music along the way. 👊🏼
Of all my albums, this is one that I want to make sure people get to hear.
That’s why I’m giving away CD copies of it.
If you’re like me, you’re figuring yourself out along the way in life. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in mine, and I don’t shy away from talking about that kind of stuff in my music. Leave the perfect raps for the perfect rappers. That ain’t me. Music is a dialogue (at least in my head it is) and sometimes we just gotta know we’re not alone in the world.
I write these records in from a relational perspective because music has helped me in my journey so immensely. So, if you don’t mind covering the shipping, I want to send you this CD that is kinda like a chunk of my soul, entitled The 13th Floor. I don’t need to get paid on this one, I just think you should take in these jawns. They just might bless your life. My hope is that they will.
