Canadian hip hop pride. I seem to recall that somebody, somewhere, told me that Toronto is the fourth-biggest city in North America. If only I could remember where I heard that…
If Canada were part of the United States, Toronto would be the 4th biggest city. It has roughly 2.5 million residents within its city limits.
Montreal would be 6th, between Houston and Pheonix.
Be aware these are cities proper, so it has a lot to do with where you draw the lines. It would probably be the 7th or 10th, depending on who's counting. Canadian cities are *ahem* a bit more urban than American metro areas.
Toronto has some great hip-hop. Keep an eye out for "Dusty Foot Philosopher" from Toronto's K'naan, finally coming out in the states this spring. Also, there's a dude who goes by Change from there who's dope.
Toronto is awesome, but like #1 said, depends how you define city boundaries - Mexico City, by some estimates, is as populous as the other top three US cities, combined.
Halifax is where its at. CA Hip Hop lives! J Martinez, Sleep, Sebutones! Wish we could get it right here in the states! Megasoid too
@2 - keep an eye out? wow...i picked up that disc 2 or 3 years ago at the vancouver folk music festival when he performed there!
good thing the name of the fest keeps so many yanks away from ever venturing to it...
I agree about the Vancouver Folk Music Festival - inexpensive way to see cool music from around the world - punk, rap, neocore, whatever.
I miss Masia One (early 2000s Toronto/Mississauga Singaporean female rapper)
used to get down with choclair and rascalz, still fux with kardinall...
don't know much about the t-dot hop tho...
