A couple of weeks ago, Dayton, Ohio’s producer/emcee Issa Ali released his long-awaited album debut, Book of Issa.
Ali, who once performed in Toronto as part of the Dave Chappelle Juke Joints, enlisted Mr. International Kardinal Offishall for the “Don’t Stop” single alongside Trey Parker.
It’s truly an honor to collaborate with Kardi, someone I grew up listening to,” Ali told HipHopDX in a recent interview. “He was one of the first to rep not only Toronto (T DOT) but the whole country of Canada. We brought Ohio and TDOT together and made a banger — and the vibe was pure. Also, shoutout to my homie Trey Parker who absolutely flamed the hook. I’m very proud of this single. It added a lot of flavor to my project Book of Issa.”
“Don’t Stop” was recently added to HipHopCanada’s official Spotify playlist, Canadian Fresh. You can also find it on other digital streaming outlets like Apple Music and TIDAL.
