Canadian Hip Hop Veteran Saukrates aka ‘Bigg Soxx is a 3x Juno Nominated Rapper, Singer, and Record Producer Extraordinaire. Saukrates has been a centerpiece of the Hip Hop and R&B scene for quite some time in Toronto.
The beneficiaries of Saukrates artistry has impacted the careers of K-OS, Kardinal Offishall, Jully Black, Maestro Fresh Wes, Andreena Mill, Choclair and Swollen Members. As well as the new breed of Canadian Rappers such as Drake, Classified, Rich Kidd, Son Real, Tre Mission and Shad. Also, not to mention working with the likes of Nelly Furtado, Nas, Common and Method Man & Redman.
Saukrates latest release the ‘Amani’ EP dropped on Sept 23rd, 2014 ft. tracks like ‘Kingdom Come’, ‘Amani’, ‘Big Bang’ and ‘#FYEO’ ft. Son Real with production by Saukrates, Rich Kidd and Snaz which includes a 2015 Juno Nomination for Best Rap Recording of the Year. This is definitely the time for the Top-Tier Canadian Hip Hop Legend to Reign Supreme as could very well take home a JUNO with ‘Season Two’ in the works as the Next Project. Don’t miss this opportunity to catch Bigg Soxx live on April 5th, 2015 this Easter Long Weekend as he performs Classic Hits as well as New Material.
His Shad-ness does his first Toronto show since taking up residence as the new host of Q and shares the stage with one of my favorite singers out of the Mega, Zaki Ibrahim. Should be a reeeeal good night!

Toronto monthly event #TheHustle features a buzzing all-city lineup headlined by Keita Juma.
TORONTO – The Academy is back with the third edition of its recently launched #TheHustle concert series. Helping ring spring in are three Toronto acts quickly building a buzz in their home city and beyond. Leading the pack is Keita Juma, the Fake Arts Records artist who recently released his Chaos Theory LP to critical acclaim and SoundCloud success (over 35,000 plays since January 6th, 2015). He’s also received broad love for the innovative video for lead single “Come Over” featuring Brendan Philip, invoking infectious deep house grooves while the duo exchange casually swagged-out verses. The labelmates and longtime collaborators will be performing a set presented by Manifesto and Red Bull Sound Select at the Field Trip music festival in June, alongside the legendary alt-hip hop group De La Soul.
Adding to the local firepower are Mad Kids Records rapper Beaugé and StayOutLate, a trio of Brampton-bred and 416-based emcees Tremayne, Scott Free and Japes. All five artists on the roster have been steadily building a buzz in Toronto by playing key shows, collaborating with buzz producers, and aligning with innovative artists to disrupt the scene from the inside out. On March 19th, 2015, Torontonians will get a chance to see just why #TheHustle is putting the spotlight on these very talented individuals. Providing the soundtrack for the night is another young talent, DJ Yobi (DSTRY).

About Keita Juma:
Alternative Hip Hop never sounded so good, Keita Juma is what you wish you heard when you were younger and what your glad you heard now. He is “Hip Hop” inviting Rock, R’n’B and Dance Music to dinner and everyone wants seconds.
Compared to the likes of Common, Andre 3000 and Mos Def, this young man is fitted for the Hip Hop history books. Keita Juma is a credited recording engineer and mix engineer – the best sound is always first priority. Self-production inspired by Danger Mouse (Gnarles Barkley), Kanye West and many more has made this sound so diverse but yet still current. Raised in England and relocating to Canada at 11, “A Breath of Fresh Heir” is what music needs and is what you will get.
