Hip Hop in the TDot

by chinwhat at 10:55 p.m.
We’re in the middle of a strong set of Hip Hop shows in the city which I don’t think I’ve seen since the late 90’s! It’s so insane what’s happening! Here’s just a slice of all the big shows…

Jurassic 5 and Ice Cube were here last month.
Little Brother and Frank N Dank were here for TUMF (damn rain!)
A Tribe Called Quest were here a week ago on the 17th.
Friday had Special Ed, Chubb Rock and Greg Nice over at The Amnesia Jam at The Kool Haus.
The greatest of all time, Rakim Allah is performing tonight.
Talib Kweli’s here tomorrow (Monday).
The Blastmaster, KRS-One will be here next week.
Boot Camp Clik is here on the 28th of September.
DJ Shadow October 12th.
The 30th of October has Madlib visiting.
Jurassic 5 returns and will be at The Phoenix on November 7th.

And I didn’t even mention any of the underground acts that are coming through! I can’t say “!” enough! It’s a great time to be a fan of live Hip Hop here in Toronto!
