Cold Front - the first compilation of all-Canadian hip hop released on a major label put together by the homie, Johnbronski!
Michie Mee was one of the first Canadian MCs to make inroads in the US. She was down with MC Lyte and Audio Two's First Priority crew. Shout to the homie, Giz!
And Toronto's own version of the hip hop remake of the iconic 'Great Day in Harlem' image:
I'm not gonna get into a whole rehash of the event but it was great, something that needed to happen. Toronto has a deep hip hop history and this exhibit goes some way towards beginning to catalog and document that history. It also coincided with the launch of Northsidehiphop.ca, a website dedicated to that same mission. Click the links for more info: T-dot Pioneers | Northsidehiphop.ca
