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.

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.

[Review] CyHi The Prince w/ DillanPonders, Jerzee & SeT @ Tattoo – June 14th (Toronto)

Cyhi Cover

As a show to almost kick off NXNE week, Cyhi The Prince made his way to Toronto on Saturday, June 14 to perform at Tattoo. This venue located on Queen Street West has been home to some great concerts previously; this one was an addition to that list. If you’re a G.O.O.D. Music fan, which how could you not be; than you might of been ecstatic to witness this Grammy Award nominee perform in Toronto. I know I was. It’s always good to see an artist live to really get acquainted with their overall sound when you’re a fan of their music. Currently promoting Black Hystori, executive produced by Kanye West; you know it was going to be one of those nights.
