If you’ve been following me or @thecomeupshow on twitter this past weekend then you know I’ve been in Toronto since Thursday night. The main reason for coming down was to support Rich Kidd for his album In My Opinion release party. Having been to countless Rich Kidd shows, this was the first time I’ve been to a show for his mixtape/album. I’m glad I went because it was one of the best performances I’ve seen from Rich, bringing his mother on stage, his uncle pulling dance moves, The Airplane Boys performing Beau Monde, A Game and Luu Breeze performing Money Made Me Do It. I’m very inspired because Feel Good Music is being embraced and supported!
I planned to stay on the low for the rest of my weekend in Toronto, I met up with Nick Andrews the genius behind all The Come Up Show Interviews you see edited, he happened to be shooting behind the scenes footage for Maestro Fresh Wes, once I arrived I saw D.O., Classified, Kardinal Offishall, Rochester, I had to stick around and capture photos and video to share with you. It was a music video shoot for “Dearly Departed” a new song off the upcoming Maestro album Orchestrated Noise, the song is produced by Lord Quest and featuring Kardinal Offishall. Classified invited us to his second sold out show at the Opera House and since it was the last show on his Canadian tour there was a crazy afterparty. Make sure to follow us on our @thecomeupshow instagram, twitter, and vine accounts to see all the videos, photos, of this amazing weekend. Thank you Toronto!
