BODYROCK this Sunday!

Yaggaaaa! Caribana Weekend is quickly approaching and I don’t know about you, but my weekend is full to the brim with festivities. Most nights jam packed with 2 parties in one evening! You know I get it iiiinnnnnn. Speaking of parties you should partake in, Sunday night, July 31st, my family Wan Luv and Jesse Ohtake (of The Main Ingredient) along with some other promoters are putting together BODYROCK. The last time I hit up this jam was last summer… and needless to say, I did get rocked. (Ask me what I mean by this in person, Lol.)

I’m giving away 2 FREE tickets to this event!!! If you wanna be the winner for this pair, all you have to do is answer me this: What is Lovehard’s slogan? **hint, it is on the Original Lovehard Tee**

We On Some Rich Kidd Sh*t 5

I can’t believe it’s already been a year since Ritchie’s craaaaazyyy WOSRKS4 release party last year. Too many insane artists on stage, the release of his first music video for track ‘Take It Slow’, and of course, Rich Kidd himself, wylin’ out in the crowd and runnin’ down the bar. If there’s anything you need to know about Toronto’s favorite producer/emcee, he puts on one heck of a show.

It’s Wednesday and there’s more to celebrate other than humping. My peoples SOUL CUSTODY, aka Damian, Lady Shabaz, and Apollo Creed are finally releasing their album that they’ve been working on all year. I’ve heard it multiple times, I’ve listened to them practice, and I can’t tell you enough how freaking talented these guys are. Damian’s creative and original production, Allie’s ridiculously buttery voice, Apollo’s dirty sound when he spits… really REALLY something you’ve never heard and will love, if you appreciate good music.

Raise It Up For Your Ma Dukes

A couple of months ago, my dude DJ Nana hit me up and asked me to be part of a very special weekend — Maureen ‘Ma Dukes’ Yancey, aka J Dilla’s mom, was coming down to Toronto for the first time and would be screening Suite For Ma Dukes. [For previous blog post, click HERE.]

A short film about an incredible composer who took Dilla’s most beloved hits, this man had an orchestra perform them, alongside some of our favorites: Common, Bilal, D’Angelo, and more.

Tomorrow is a special art showcase where all our footage and photos that we documented during that weekend, will be on display, a collaboration of other artists who have re-worked our pieces.

**Update: I will be working at RapCity tomorrow night for the opening reception party, BUT I will be there afterwards for the after party endeavors!  The exhibit will be running on Friday and Saturday as well. For full facebook details, click HERE.
