Godfather of Canadian hip hop music, Maestro Fresh-Wes, and Big Tweeze in conversation about his early years in Toronto’s hip hop scene, his longevity in the industry, and his burgeoning acting career. Maestro will also discuss his artistic journey as a Canadian emcee in New York as he worked on his 1994 release ‘Naaah Dis Kid Can’t be from Canada?!! The conversation will be followed by a live performance.

Following the success of previous intimate Acoustic Conversations, which intertwine conversations and a live performance, the McMichael continues with a series that will provide an in-depth look at the development of the hip hop scene in Toronto. Behind the hype, the videos, and hip hop’s ubiquitous presence are the musical geniuses on stage as well as behind the mixing boards. Producers and Sound Engineers not only make each song precise but work closely with artists to create unique sonic compositions. The conversations will be moderated by Big Tweeze a.k.a Anthony Corsi, Producer and Co-host of Views Before the Six.

Please note: the tickets for all Acoustic Conversations include Gallery Admission that day.
