S.A.R.S. aka Sick Artists Runnin Shit Presents S.A.R.S. 9: Quarantine, the latest addition to their acclaimed mixtape series. Established in 2003, S.A.R.S. has now been circulating music across Canada for close to a decade, and has sold over 100,000 copies (physical and digital) independently. They’ve featured artists from across North America and have become one of the most known and celebrated brands in Canada’s mixtape history. The success is due largely to the grind of S.A.R.S. founder and frontline MC, T.R.A. aka Tha Rhyme Animal – an original member of Toronto’s infamous Empire crew and also the host of the series.
S.A.R.S 9: Quarantine is action packed with amazing emcees, lyrical skills and rhyme schemes that guarantee you’ll be looking for the repeat button. The mixtape features a ton of dope artists including The SARS Network, Freedom Writers, Junia-T, Peter Jackson, Raz Fresco, Team Homi, KemiKAL, T-Gramz, Kinsmuv and much more. Make sure you get a copy of this Canadian hip-hop classic and support the independent local underground artists.
If you were present at the 6th annual Manifesto a couple of weeks ago you would have caught the amazing performance by Maestro Fresh Wes. All suited up in Royal Canadian Mountie Police uniform with two back up dancers it was definitely a fresh idea and entertaining to see.
