On Saturday October 11th, Top Dawg Entertainment’s Ab-Soul brought his ‘These Days’ tour to the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto. Soul seems to be the underdog on the label. Unlike his label mates Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q who have both had solo tours, this was Ab-Soul’s first time headlining a solo tour – it did not disappoint. The night began with sets from Atlanta duo, Earthgang and Toronto’s own Jimmy B.

No it’s not deja-vu, and yes that should be Ice Cube, WC, and Mack 10, except it’s not! But we’re sure you can’t call your tour “Westside Connection” if one hails from the east. Thus the announcement of the BestCoast tour where ASAP Ferg and YG have taken on a new challenge and have collaborated for a joint adventure to 8 venues across North America. The tour will begin on November 13th in Philadelphia before making its way to Toronto on the 19th at the Sound Academy and finishing off in Boston on the 25th. The show is all ages and will undeniably be a show where all in attendance will enjoy!

It’s been a good year for Fredrick Tipton, or better known to his fans by his stage name Freddie Gibbs who recently dropped the expected Piñata album alongside California’s own Madlib. But what’s an album release without a tour to back it up? Which brings the Indiana native to Toronto for a highly anticipated performance inside The Hoxton Sunday, October 26, 2014. Gibbs has been hailed and recognized for his hardcore rap abilities and not holding back when it comes to his lyrics, so expect a show full of mind provoking dialogue and limitless boundaries. This will certainly be one show catered directly to fans of rap and he’s just trying to make music that makes the meal, no recognition!
