I’m admittedly on the late bus with this one, but still love the song so I wanted to post it. John River is part of Toronto’s Generation Next as far as MC’s go, and he clearly LOVES what he does. He’s definitely hungry, and one to watch. The video was released last month and is getting steady support.  Peep the video:

Also for the DJs – here’s the DJ Pack for the song. Special salute to ANDRE 905 for sharing the links. Sharing is caring…

Brand new video featuring some of my fav T-Dot MCs – official blurb is below.  Watch and enjoy!!

Celebrating over 25 years in the music industry, Maestro Fresh Wes is one of the most influential hip hop artists in Canada. With BORN IN TORONTO, the Godfather of Canadian Hip Hop releases the visuals for his collabo with the ‘Young Boss’, Rich Kidd about the city they both represent.  Directed by Andre Rehal and produced by Bruce Carson of Worked Films, the video features glimpses of some famous landmarks and events that make Toronto the amazing city that it is.  From the fireworks of the city’s annual Cavalcade of Lights, to the colourful spectrum of Caribana, to peeks at City Hall and The ACC, the home of The Toronto Raptors, Wes and Rich Kidd deliver this dedication to their city from East to West.  In addition to some of Toronto’s key landmarks, the video also features cameos by Kardinal Offishall, Shad K, and Kwajo Cinco (from Ghetto Concept).

With beats produced by Rich Kidd, “BORN IN TORONTO” features the two MCs trading bars on all things related to the city — from music and city history, to politics and social commentary – all with a touch of lyrical word play and style. In addition to being a much sought-after producer and MC, Rich Kidd recently received a 2015 JUNO Award nomination for Rap Recording of the Year as part of Natural Born Strangers, his group with fellow T-Dot artists Tona, and Adam Bomb, who is also featured on the hook for this single.  The visuals are the perfect match to tell the story of Toronto.

Wow – it’s been about 2 months since my last post, but that’s because I’ve been blessed enough to be crazy busy. In-store appearances, mad parties, and corporate events (shouts out to H&M Canada and all the recipients of the Golden Hanger Awards!), but this is the one that has me REALLY excited.  When Diamond D‘s “Stunts, Blunts and Hip Hop” came out in 1992, I was a kilt-wearing Catholic high school girl with a serious addiction to all things hip hop.  The only thing that’s really changed is I can’t fit into that kilt now to save my life.

On Sunday February 15th, the legendary DIAMOND D will be hitting the stage to perform the classic album – in its entirety! I’m sure he’ll drop a few surprises here and there, and will squeeze in one or two of his newer joints, but I’m truly amped to be opening for this icon.  I’ll be hitting the stage alongside DJ Law, with an opening performance by King Reign.  My peoples Click will be holding it down with hosting duties. Not only is it going to be mad fun, but it’s also a fundraiser for Manifesto. Can’t Wait!
