Up North Tip Videos: Cold Front Record Release Party (1991), CKLN 88.1 FM Radio Rarities 

Two Old School Canadian hip hop posts in a row??! That's how we do it for ' Thursdays' at The Kitchen:

and Part 2: the Cold Front Freestyle hosted by John Bronski featuring Base Poet, Thrust, SonyaLive, Maestro Fresh Wes, T Soul, Kish, Motion, 10-Kay and even Maestro manager (and Canadian Idol judge) Farley Flex spittin' some bars:

Love those 2 Black Guys t-shirts!

Props to Teddy C.D. at The T.R.O.Y. Blog who posted these clips HERE as part of his Canadian Hip Hop Series.

These videos were shot at the release party for the Cold Front compilation album which was the first-ever compilation of all-Canadian hip hop. When I came across that StreetBeat, Break’N Out album in the post below, I got confused because that album, which I'd never heard of (or just don't remember), seemed to pre-date this project but, according to my man, John Adams who executive produced the Cold Front comp, that album was really just an 'artist album' featuring the roster of pioneering Canadian hip hop label, Beat Factory Records. That seems to fit the definition of a compilation to me but maybe I'm missing something?
