Toronto, ON – Canadian hip-hop artist JDiggz is set to release his brand new EP, Two Weeks Notice (Frostbyte/eOne Entertainment), on Tuesday, October 23, 2012. The highly anticipated follow-up to JDiggz’ 2010 mixtape, The Xperiment, Two Weeks Notice is the latest showing of his flow and rap finesse and features his current single “Act A Fool” featuring Leftside. The seven-track EP offers innovative sounds and raw energy and is a collection of JDiggz’ distinct style and swagger. Full track listing below.


“This record marks the beginning of a journey for me,” says JDiggz. “It’s been five years since my last album and I’m extremely excited to show everyone my growth, musically. I’m very proud of this body of work and I hope everyone enjoys it!

JDiggz’ knack for everything musical started early when he began producing his own beats at the age of 10. After his single ‘Hypnotic’ caught the attention of Toronto producer Rahmel and world-renowned video director, Little X (Nelly Furtado, John Mayer, Usher), his popularity was raised to new heights. In 2007, JDiggz went on to release his debut album Memoirs of a Playbwoy, which featured his first music video “Puush It Up” that became one of MuchMusic’s top streamed videos at the time.


Over the last few years, JDiggz has toured with some of hip-hop’s elite including Akon and Ludacris and has performed with R&B veteran Mario and rap star The Game. In 2010, he headlined a Grammy showcase hosted by LL Cool J in front of a packed house at LA’s famous Key Club on Sunset. With producer credits that include Blake McGrath’s debut album Time To Move, JDiggz’ versatility, creativity and his ability to produce soulful music are at the forefront of Canada’s thriving hip-hop community.


JDiggz recently won the 2011 MuchMusic Video Award for Independent Video of the Year for his single “This Time” featuring alternative music heavyweights, Never Ending White Lights which also went on to hit #1 on the MuchMusic countdown. His production team, Starbwoyz Music, have produced several Contemporary Hit Radio Top 40 records for artists such as Kardinal Offishal and Drake.

3. Can’t Deny It

4. Home for the Night
