As Toronto native Rich Kidd tells it, “we’ve got two seasons up here; winter and July.” Though it’s not July quite yet, it looks like Rich Kidd is ready to heat things up early. The rapper-producer (…or is that producer-rapper?) who’s collaborated with a slew of talented artists including Raekwon, Chase N. Cashe, and Talib Kweli, recently offered up a hearty sample of his newest project, In My Opinion.
To ring in the release of his free 19-track album, Rich Kidd and a handful of talented Canucks celebrated at Toronto’s Wrongbar. Of course, RESPECT. was there to document the night’s proceedings.
Young Raz Fresco and his Baker’s Club brethren, The6thLetter, helped set the tone for the night by weaving through old favorites and freestyles. They graciously even performed samples from the forthcoming project, PABLO/FRESCOBAR.
The Airplane Boys also rolled through to perform Beau Monde. Coming from the same end of the city, one of the few things better than catching one of their live performances has been watching their craft progress over the years. This duo’s unique flow and style make them a standout act in any country. Just ask all the freckle-faced twenty-somethings that saw them at Coachella last year.
Capping the night with a rowdy performance of his new single “SYKE,” the multi-talented musician took his music straight to the fans.
In the end, in addition to being an All-Canadian party animal, Rich Kidd has an amazing stage presence that’s magnified by his stadium-ready music. If you still haven’t already familiarized yourself with the vibrations from up north, be sure to check out Rich Kidd’s new project In My Opinion as well as his We On Some Rich Kidd Shit series. Toronto’s got talent.
