Our special guest today is an artist, actress, and a pioneer. Michie Mee was the first Canadian MC to sign with a major American Label. She called into our radio show and talked to our host Michael aka Kiv to talk about what it was like a woman in hip-hop, being outcasted for mixing dancehall and Hip-Hop and so much more.
The reason Michie called in was to promote an acoustic conversation that happened at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection north of Toronto. The series takes an in-depth look at the development of the hip hop scene in Toronto and combines live performance. There are a couple more happening, next one is on August 19th with Fresh Kils and Sept 9 with Maestro Fresh Wes.
There’s also a photo exhibit happening at McMichael that goes until October. It explores the evolution and longevity of Hip-Hop and specifically Canadian hip-hop. The galley is open 7 days a week and there’s even an art bus that takes you from downtown. Check out all the info at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection website.
