Very rarely do we hear much about the individual(s) responsible for providing the sound bed to some our favourite songs. However, this generation is beginning to shift, offering a completely new experience; full of opportunity. While some producers prefer to portray themselves as mysterious, or anonymous, others are shaping a culture where talented individuals can share their craft with a live audience.

Hopsin @ Kool Haus May 16 (Toronto)

It’s been just over a year since the Funk Volume artist Hopsin hit the stage in Toronto, last January to be exact; so the hype leading into the show at Kool Haus, May 16th was phenomenally huge. Months in advance you seen hundreds of posts over social media, full of excited fans ready to experience a night, that was you’ll have to continue on to find out about. As part of his Knock Madness tour, starting in Vancouver and ending in Montreal on May 17th, Hopsin hit the stage in every major city across Canada in support of his latest album, Knock Madness and believe it was a tour I’ll bet he’s going home remembering. Hopsin has been on the rise over the past few years, gaining more notoriety in the business and along with the likes of Tech N9ne, he is an inspiration and a role model for all independent artist’s alike.

Tuesday May 6, 2014 was a legendary day for Hip-Hop in Toronto! It was the the first time The Lox (Jadakiss, Styles P, and Sheek Louch) performed together and they did so at Sound Academy. Special thanks to 90 Nickel Entertainment and Peter Jackson for making it possible. We had amazing access into the performances as we were on stage and in the media pit snapping photos and video that we published to our instagram account. Take it in and let me know what your favourite moment was of the show, you don’t realize how many hits they have as a group and individually until you hear them being performed back to back.

[Review] CMW & Ink Present Travi$ Scott May 7th @ The Opera House (Toronto)

Update: We’ve added additional photos of the night that you can check out at the slideshow below or you can head straight to our flickr album. Photos by Eddy Rissling for The Come Up Show.

Wednesday, May 7, at The Opera House in Toronto was a night a part of Canadian Music Week, with the main headliner being Houston rapper, Travi$ Scott. The fans were lined up before the doors opened at 8; there was music playing, and the line was patiently waiting. When the doors finally opened and everyone was getting settled inside, fans couldn’t help notice the house music that was playing. It was a mix of every genre but hip hop and definitely did not match the vibe of the night. Fans were left standing and conversing before the show got started around 9pm.
