Saskatchewan rapper, 23-year-old Kyriel “PIMPTON” Roberts combines old-school hip-hop influences, experimental production, and thought-provoking lyrical flow to create a distinctive brand of hip-hop. Pimpton released two major albums in 2013 – The Deal Breaker: Manifest Destiny in February 2013, followed by Killa Call Me Killa Vol. 1 in September 2013, and will release Killa Call Me Killa Vol. 2 this fall of 2014.
Pimpton immigrated to Canada from the country island of Trinidad and Tobago in ’94. He started listening to hip-hop when he was 12 years old and released his debut album, The Newer Testament while he was still in highschool in 2008. Pimpton has always been interested in social issues and classism. He tends to strongly identify with the struggles of the middle class, and those of visible minorities. Pimpton’s reflections on these problems are conveyed through his lyricism.
Some of y’all are Roughriders fans and that’s okay…
The pack is back once again, with the official release of their new song dedicated to the Saskatchewan Roughriders, “Sea Of Green”. Sea Of Green is as hard hitting as it is energy filling. Not to mention attention grabbing. With audio highlights from various Saskatchewan Roughrider games as well as grey cup victories, Wolfpack pays tribute to Roughriders of the past and present throughout the entire song.
This high energy anthem is sure fire to set the standard for upcoming tributes and anthems dedicated to the Roughriders for years to come and is quickly becoming the pump up song of choice for Roughrider fans the country over. The second official single off the groups upcoming album “Wolfpack Or Nothing” has left Wolfpack fans with little patience as they await the groups Mid-September release.

Pin- A pin is when you hold your opponents shoulders on the mat for a period of 5 seconds. You must be in control to get a pin. As soon as you get a pin the match is over.
Technical Fall – As known as a tech, or a techfall. A technical fall is when a wrestler scores 15 or more points on his opponent during the match. Once he hits 15 points or more the match is immediately over. Think of it as a mercy rule.
Stalling – Stalling is when a wrestler does not attack or is not being aggressive. This usually happens when he is in the lead, so that he can buy time and not have to do anything. It is a caution-able offense and doing it 2 times or more in a match will give your opponent a penalty point.
Takedown – A takedown is when a wrestler takes his opponent from off his feet to the ground. To get a takedown a wrestler must be in control, behind his opponent and the opposing wrestler must have three points of his body down on the ground.
Mat Maid – Slang used for team managers. Usually they are girls and will help out the team with team scoring during tournaments, help setting up for the meets and cleaning the mats for the team. They are also some of the team’s biggest supporters.
Dual Meet – A dual meet is a competition between two wrestling teams. It is also possible to have a tri and quad meet. That is when you compete against 3 and 4 teams respectively. These are head-to-head battles against teams and should not be confused with team tournaments.
