This will be the first day of our September Calendar where there is a event everyday, sometimes twice a day, at The Square!! So come by to kick off the start of the month, grab a calendar and listen to some rap. Three of Ontario’s rebel hip-hop acts are joining forces to celebrate workers struggles with lyrical class antagonism at it’s finest.
TEST THEIR LOGIK(Toronto/London) is made up of two revolutionary MC’s: Testament and Illogik. Their music is a lyrical explosion in the face of authority and oppression, a sonic boom in the ears of big brother, and a no-holds-barred escape into rebellion. Ushering in a new era of subversive anti-authoritarian hip-hop, Test Their Logik delivers clear methodical rhymes alternating with rapid-fire lyrical assaults over dark bass- and synth-heavy beats. They’ve toured North America from coast to coast to coast, criss-crossed Europe, and rocked mics in international hot-spots such as Oaxaca, Barcelona, Palestine, and Athens
O'B (Sudbury) is the front-man for the group KILL THE AUTOCRAT. He released his first single “One Day Longer” in 2010 while on a year long strike at Vale Inco in Sudbury. Within weeks the song became an anthem for the United Steelworkers Union of America. And he was quickly being flown to places such as Wisconsin to perform for massive Labour convergences and actions. Taking the driving rhythmic pulse of rock music and pushing it up against the fighting essence of traditional hip-hop.
LEE REED(Hamilton) scene. Best known as the incendiary mouthpiece for the legendary Warsawpack, REED has been in the game for nearly 2 decades.
