Happy to be on one of the panels at this event on Friday. Ty and I will both be there so please come through if you can and show some love to Toronto’s radio family. If I’m not mistaken, our panel is at around 3:00pm after the Godfather Ron Nelson’s keynote address (which is not to be missed). Bom! Shouts to Mark Campbell and NorthSideHipHop for thinking of us and of course for putting on the event. Should be dope!

Here he joins Makini Smith as part of NABFEMS’s “In Conversation With” event going down this Thursday night to talk about his new book. Bom.
