Toronto rapper and Northstarr label head D.O. (short for ‘Defy the Odds’) presents “Old Habits”, his new Diz Dallas-produced single featuring D-Sisive and Aspektz. “Habits” appears on Home For The Summer, his new mixtape out now featuring D.O.’s groups Art of Fresh and The Busy Brothers. Behind the boards is DJ IV, multiple Stylus Award winner and Classified’s official DJ. Features include Famous, JD Era, D-Sisive, Diz Dallas, Preetam Sengupta, and Robbie G with production coming from Statik Music, Jahronomo INC, Slakah the Beatchild, Tone Mason, and Natural Diggers. Home For The Summer is the followup to D.O.’s Down Home album (Soundcloud), which includes “Capture The Moonlight” featuring Joell Ortiz and Saukrates (listen) as well as videos for “I Live For This” (Youtube) and “Still In It” (Youtube). D.O. is the 2003 Guinness World Record holder for longest freestyle rap (Youtube), a regular public speaker with his own school tour program Stay Driven, a Toronto Independent Music Award nominee (for his 2007 album Northstarr), a #1 CMJ artist and regularly performs internationally, recently performing at the MIDEM conference in France and Sweden’s Independent Music Awards in Stockholm. “I’ve been in ten countries so far this year,” says D.O. “Since I was on the road so much, I wanted to come back home for the summer. Coming home is when you get a chance to connect with family and friends, its also a chance to get back in the booth. Whenever I step back in the studio its a chance for me to take my experiences from the road and put them on record.”
