Festivals like the UNITY Charity Festival are vital to Toronto's hip hop community. They don't really have these kind of events in New York City, Los Angeles or any other major urban centres, and if they do, they are certainly not free. It's charity over commerce this time, and that's making Canadian hip hop look great.
Toronto’s own Rich Kidd has been Canada’s best-kept secret since his ascension from local underground stardom to national fame in the past couple of years. The architect of a new sound coming from T Dot, Rich has been steadily amassing praise from industry greats and music critics for his 360-degree musical vision: as an inspirational artist, world-class producer, and captivating performer. He will open for Talib Kweli on Saturday, July 20 as part of the 5th Annual UNITY Festival.
