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.

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.

It’s been a good year for Taylor Gang signee, Ty Dolla Sign who made his way to Toronto on Friday, October 24, 2014 for his “In Too Deep” tour with Chicago rapper Lil Bibby. The night was young as fans lined up outside the Virgin Mobile Mod Club on College Street to attest to the artists successes first hand. A breeze of positive energy filled the air as some fans took it upon themselves to sing some of their favourite Ty Dolla Sign anthems as they awaited entrance into the venue.

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.
