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.

Look out for our interview with Naturally Born Strangers coming very soon. Congratulations once again to the whole Legends League team, Rich Kidd, Tona, Adam Bomb, Addy and the whole team. Over 700 people attended this show which is pretty rare in terms of attendance when it comes to local talent. I unfortunately missed out on their performance (my best friend forgot their ID) I hope that this does develop into a tour though. Request Naturally Born strangers to perform in your city! In the meantime check the photography by CZR-E for The Come Up Show.
It was November 9, 1993 that Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) made its debut to the world and 20 years later it's touted as one of the greatest hip hop albums ever. The celebration wouldn't have been the same if Wu-Tang Clan hadn't reunited on stage and we've seen few select dates in 2013. Toronto was one of those lucky cities to witness the legendary group live minus Rza and Masta Killa. Our reviewer Colton couldn't see the show because of circumstances beyond our control but we did manage to get access for our photographer Danielle Da Silva to capture a couple of flicks.
Check out the photos of the opening acts such as Peter Jackson, Trinity Chris, Gangis Khan, and the headlining act The Wu-Tang Clan. Let me know what your experience of the show was like in the comment section.
