Friday January 31, was a busy night for Hip Hop in Toronto and The Come Up Show was there so none of you missed a beat. The Hoxton was filled with Dom Kennedy fans that were hyped for the OPM rapper’s first appearance in Toronto, his special guest Skeme and his DJ, Drewbyrd.
Leading up to the show, fans were huddled in line, trying to keep warm, and some even brought coffee. Most of the line showed up around 7, when doors were scheduled to open and were definitely ready to welcome Dom to Canada. Fans had ditched their typical Blue Jays and Leafs apparel for the night, trading it in for Dodgers hats and Kings gear. Inside, if you were looking to rep your love, the merch table didn’t have much of a selection (just one black, long sleeved tee) but fans were still buying it Peep the full review and photography at the jump!
