In nine days, this years Juno Awards take place in Hamilton, Ontario. Among the rap nominees, are some of the best in the Canadian scene. Ironically, they are all from Toronto and surrounding areas. Which in my opinion, the GTA has some of the best artists in the business. Not to exclude the east or west coast, because the Canadian scene as a whole is taking over. Toronto is just the hub of it all.
Performing a song off their nominated projects, Saukrates, Naturally Born Strangers (Tona, Adam Bomb, Rich Kidd) & Tre Mission head over to CBC Music HQ with Marco Polo who runs the boards on the whole ordeal. What happens next though, is a time stamp in Canadian rap history as we get to hear them all go in on a cypher. With Saukrates setting it off, followed by Adam Bomb, Tre Mission than Tona. As each emcee goes in, it’s evident why these guys are nominated for Rap Recording of the Year. Also nominated, P Reign who is currently on tour with Drake in Australia & New Zealand. Rich Kidd is out in LA who is part of the collective, Naturally Born Strangers. If both of them were there also, it would be even crazier!
Take in the cypher and let me know who you think is going to win at the Juno’s on March 15th.
Tre Mission – Stigmata
Naturally Born Strangers – The Legends League Presents: Naturally Born Strangers
P Reign – Dear America
Saukrates – Amani
Marco Polo – Port Authority 2: The Directors Cut
