Canadian Artists Explain The First Time They Heard Hip-Hop

Kardinal Offishall

We don’t get to really expound with a lot of detail, but there is a lot of mentions. Sunshine Sound Crew, Kilowatt, Sheet Dynasty, going back, talking about Fantastic Voyage and Powermove, all these different things that laid very important bricks in the foundation, if you will. That’s the thing, there are so many different people and angles that you could take, but I think what we did [with the Juno tribute], and I think we did a decent job, is mentioning the staples, but then also some people that people may not be aware of. We’re talking about B-Kool, although he didn’t win a Juno for best rap. He was the first rapper to win a Juno [featured on Simply Majestic’s win for best R&B/soul recording for ‘’Dance To The Music’] or any of the other artists that we mentioned. So it’s a good, it’s a good starting block.
