    Canada is known for a number of things—maple syrup, Mounties, igloos as houses—but blanks are drawn at the mention of Canadian hip-hop. While Canada is indeed greatly influenced by the hip-hop generated by their neighbours (Canadian spelling of neighbors, FYI) south of the border, the Great White North does have a healthy hip-hop community of its own. "Well, there's Drake," you say. Yeah, there's Drake. But did you know there are Canadian rappers besides Drake? It's true—here are 15 great Canadian rappers who aren't Drake.

    Oh, and happy 4th of July, Americans.

    Love, Joyce.
