Concert Review: Jay Electronica at The Danforth Music Hall in Toronto

For more than a decade, there’s been a shroud of mystery surrounding Jay Electronica. Having first rose to fame within Hip-Hop circles in the mid-late 2000’s, he’s since seen his praise diminish over the years, with an extremely minimal and rare output of music.

Concert Review: Hopsin at The Danforth Music Hall in Toronto

It’s been an interesting past twelve months for Hopsin fans.  Last summer Hopsin delivered another great album with Pound Syndrome, his third release on his Funk Volume label. After waiting a couple years since the previous release, fans finally had new music from Hop, which meant more material to perform on his world tours.  The…

Concert Review: Pusha T at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto

Just two days after Shad and Brother Ali tore the house down, Pusha T came to the same venue to promote his debut solo album, My Name Is My Name.  This was my first time seeing him perform, as I never even saw him back when he was making music with The Clipse.  I pretty much…
