Ahaha! We have been wondering for a hot minute how Canadians make it rain, what with their weighty coin monies and all. We ultimately decided that in fact they just make it hail, and there are a lot of people up there walking around Canadian clubs with purple welts all over their bodies. A-Trak, a Montrealer, deals with this very pressing issue by remixing Toronto studmonster Drake's "Money to Blow" into a signature hype club track, recontextualizing Drake's line "Lettin these bills fall over your skin" into something much, much more ominous. If you drop a Canadian looney off the Empire State Building, is its velocity enough to kill a person? Furthermore, if Drake tosses off a looney from the stage, will someone attempt to sue him for it, or are Canadians generally less litigious than Americans? If anyone knows the answer to these or any other questions, please illuminate us in the comment section. Also, A-Trak, if you have any pics of yourself making it rain (or hail) please include them in your next column.
