5 Under the Radar Music Videos About Mississauga


Published January 30, 2018 at 2:12 am


It’s hard to find any music videos about Mississauga. Since we happen to be right next to Canada’s biggest city, also known colloquially as #the6ix, any music about Mississauga tends to get mixed in with Toronto…or wherever Drake is hanging out these days.

But if you look hard enough, there are music videos out there about Canada’s sixth largest city. And no matter what genre or context, it’s nice to know that Mississauga gets mentioned in some capacity. When you watch a music video and see parts of Sauga you recognize, it tends to hit you right in the heart (in a good way).

Here are five examples of under the radar music videos about Mississauga

WARNING: some videos may contain graphic imagery or coarse language

“Break from Toronto” by PARTYNEXTDOOR

PARTYNEXTDOOR – Break From Toronto from PARTYOMO on Vimeo.

This video was done by Canadian rapper PARTYNEXTDOOR (real name Jahron Anthony Brathwaite), and the lyrics focus on the artist’s depiction of Mississauga nightlife. In the first couple of scenes you can see Tomken Plaza, at the intersection of Rathburn Road East and Tomken Road, in the background.

“Sauga Side” by Pharaoh

Pharaoh – Sauga Side from SamureyeFilms on Vimeo.

This one has nice shots of the growing Mississauga skyline (taken by drone), motorcycling down the QEW, and apparently a private hookah party somewhere.

“Backwood Music” by Esqxr feat. Zain & Mobolaji

Backwood Music from Esquire on Vimeo.

I found this to be rather poetic and “very chill.” Unlike the other videos, the people here look like they just filmed themselves hanging out on a normal night.

“Hope City II” by John River

We recently profiled a serious situation involving Matthew Derrick-Huie’s seeking out medical assistance for a reportedly serious illness. In the meantime, here’s a reminder of how he used his talent to put Mississauga on the map.

“Welcome to Sauga” by basedjezuss

Sometimes, you just happen to find one of these gems that just crack you up. Case in point, this satirical view of Mississauga. This guy also has a YouTube channel called Mucho TV
