"Bright Lights, Big City" by Scales Empire


1990s Toronto hip hop

Beat Factory was one of Toronto's most important early hip hop labels and management companies. It was founded all the way back in the early 1980s — when hip hop was just beginning — and quickly made its mark thanks to popular acts like Dream Warriors and Michie Mee. The label side of the business was especially well-known for their RapEssentials compilations. Volume One came out in 1996 and featured singles by Rascalz and Kardinal Official, along with this mellow track from Scales Empire, which spent some time in rotation on MuchMusic.
