East Coast Music Award winner Cam Smith throws “Turbo” on the masses, the first track from his upcoming summer-party album Cannon. Featuring Toronto’s XXX CLVR, “Turbo” has Cam and his homeboys dropping a fictional drug called witchstones, which spirals them into the spastic childhood fantasy of Tony Montana’s fictional child. Make sure you don't blink for two seconds, or you’ll risk missing the velociraptors, or the Grayskulls, or some other random addition.

Try not to freak out when I say this, but I think Cam Smith is the Doc of the east coast rap scene. A sonic perfectionist, he’s been grinding on Cannon for over a year, and “Turbo” captures the comic insanity that surrounds Smith and the his crew. “The video is an extreme alternate reality brought to light by Jon Eisener’s incredible animation and direction,” Smith explains. Because Eisener is a wizard of the visuals, you’re not going to see anything like this anywhere else; we really love our cake in Halifax. Get turbo.
