Imagine you just won a very unexpected Juno award and it’s Saturday night, what is your first choice of drink?
If you missed our original behind the scenes coverage of the Juno Awards I’d suggest you take it in. You will appreciate the bonus cuts that I’ll be releasing in the coming week. The first video is from my interview with Tona and Adam Bomb they take us to the exact moment when their names were announced as the winners of the Rap Recording of the Year. They share if winning the Juno Awards does anything for their motivation and Tona explains what his favourite drink Tiger Blood consists of and yes, what their choice of drink would be.
