[Video] The Juno Awards 2015: Hip-Hop was in the building

2015 JUNO Awards

I am proud to present our coverage of the Juno Awards 2015 in Hamilton, Ontario. The award categories of interest were the Rap and R&B/Soul Recording of The Year. The Weeknd won the latter category but he wasn’t present at the Awards Gala, yo Abel holla at me! I am excited as are plenty of people that the Naturally Born Strangers won Rap Recording of the year. Check out the video which features Adam Bomb, Tona, Tre Mission, JRDN, Muneshine, and SonReal.  I’d love to know what you think of our coverage and let me know how you feel that NBS won the Rap Recording of the year.

I recommend listening to the podcast which is a whole different presentation on its own, you’ll find the behind the scenes action, funny interviews and clips that didn’t make the video.

[Review] BestCoast Connection Tour ft. ASAP Ferg & YG January 14th @ Sound Academy (Toronto)

Wednesday or Trap Lord Wednesday, as some fans dubbed it, approached rather quickly from its reschedule date of November 19 to this past January 14th inside the Sound Academy. From the East Coast, Brooklyn’s own self proclaimed Trap Lord ASAP Ferg and from the West Coast, Compton’s YG finally brought their BestCoast Connection Tour to Toronto. If this was going to be anything to the caliber of any of Ferg’s prior shows fans were definitely in for a treat.

[Review] Machine Gun Kelly – No Class Tour (Canada)

15319913284_e9f4c8ccb0_z

For the past couple years around the fall/winter season, Machine Gun Kelly makes his way across Canada on tour. Every year he comes up north, the shows get better and better. This being the first I was privy to going too, I knew I was in for a great night. You definitely get your money’s worth when going to an MGK show. The turn up is inevitable. The Cleveland, Ohio artist started to rise to success after releasing his project “100 Words and Running”. From 2010 to 2011 is when everything started to change for the better and the opportunities have been growing ever since. Canada definitely loves it when he hits the country to perform, social media goes crazy! Starting on the east coast of Canada and working his way west, MGK ends his tour in Ohio with four final shows before the holidays.

[Review] T.I. – “Paperwork Tour” @ London Music Hall (London)

T.I. Paperwork Tour 2

It’s been a long time coming. Myself, I can’t recall the last time TIP was in Canada on tour, nor have I ever been to a show of his. For ninety nine percent of the people waiting in the cold Thursday, Nov. 13th outside London Music Hall to witness what was deemed to be a show to remember, I’ll bet it was the same thing. You could sense a feeling of anxiousness among the concert goers. Excitement was in the air. Everyone dressed to the max. Of course everyone had to show out for the T.I. show. Following the hype as he made his way across Canada on his Paperwork tour promoting his ninth studio album released on Columbia Records, it was clear we were in for a treat though no one could of guessed we were in for what could go down as one of the best shows to hit London this year. It’s not just myself saying that either. Though I have been to every show in the city this year, so you can trust it’s a valid opinion.

[Review] Ab-Soul w/ Jimmy B, Bas & EarthGang October 11th @ The Phoenix Concert Theatre (Toronto)

Ab-Soul These Days Tour Toronto 2014

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.
