Because nothing says “happy Canada day, Canadians!” like a mix of almost exclusively American rap, we give you CMG podcast #119: the dopest 145th birthday soundtrack ever.

If you’d like to hear more than one Canadian artist after this podcast becomes your weekend go-to, don’t fret: our Tumblr will be picking up the slack through Monday, starting with a gorgeous track from Jim Guthrie’s underrated Sword & Sworcery soundtrack and ending with…fuck, I don’t know, Carey Mercer probably? It’s a good bet.

We’ll also be collecting some of the best Canadian content we’ve posted on our Tumblr here: http://cokemachineglow.tumblr.com/tagged/CD2012.

Before tackling all that, though, please enjoy some of the best rap the first half of 2012 has to offer, plus a great new Liars track mostly because I love how in the beginning it sounds like they’re throwing in some “hey“s with Main Attrakionz. Oh, and also if you want to really impress your guests, be sure to time your fireworks to kick in at about ~21:16. POW MOTHERFUCKER:
