[Review] Unexpected Victory Concert featuring Raekwon and JD Era

JD Era at London Music Hall It has been who knows how long since Raekwon performed in the city of London, Ontario. Friday January 20th was an evening to remember as the Unexpected Tour made its first stop at the Music Hall. Raekwon (A.K.A. “The Chef”) demonstrated that he still has the passion and strong emcee skills that he displayed on his debut album Only Built for Cuban Linx back in 1995. And even though the Raekwon and JD Era concert at the London Music Hall was not sold out on Friday night, there was a good sized crowd of Raekwon and Wu-Tang Clan supporters who had nothing but love and respect for one of rap’s finest storytellers.

Rick Ross @ Sound Academy in Toronto

Less than a month ago our photography Drew aka #ShotbyDrew got to cover the Rick Ross concert in Toronto. Rozay looks like he definitely rocked the Sound Academy!! Drew as usual got some amazing photos, you can see the set list, the crowd, Rozay titties and much more LOL, just KIDDING! After looking at these photos I was thinking Rick Ross wouldn't be as popular if he was skinny....random thought I know but you think we would love him as much if he weighed 150 pounds? Could he say "I'm the biggest BOSS" with the same demeanour? HA okay just enjoy these photos and as always check out the photo gallery for more amazing photography.

[Review] Macklemore and Ryan Lewis Concert in Toronto @ Mod Club

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis concert in Toronto

Hailing from Seattle known mostly for Ken Griffey JR’s glory days on the Seattle mariners and the prodigious space needle, Seattle is not explicitly known for breeding MC’s and hip hop like New York or LA. What others might view as an impediment to mainstream stardom, I think it adds a special element to Macklemore as an MC and performer. Having been to a few hip-hop shows with performers from across the globe I can say I’m all too familiar with rappers from more prominent regions performing with a sense of entitlement and giving less than a 100 percent because they happen to be from a notable city.
