Truth By Design is a 3 man hip hop group from Toronto. In stark contrast to the influx of new school candy rap, these vets have watched hip hop generations and trends come and go. (Emcee) Mizery, (Producer) DTKS & (DJ) Lupan’s combination, make music that is poised and patient for the artform that once inspired revolt. A gritty snapneck ode to boom-bapism, the release of their debut single “Thought You Knew” is taken from the debut EP “Timeless”

The Godfather Wes “Maestro” Williams took part in a very dope speaker series during the Manifesto Festival. It was a great event that featured host Garvia Bailey and other speakers that included Ernie Panniccioli, Lillian Allen, Ivan Evidente, Nayani Thiyagarajah, Dalton Higgins, Weyni Mengesha & Buddha.
One of the pioneers in this whole Canadian hip-hop thing (think Rascalz, k-os, K’naan etc…), Sol-Guy, does his thing at TEDxToronto. In the presentation, Sol talks about harnessing the power of art in hopes to create bigger change in the world.
TEDxToronto is the largest TEDx conference for Toronto, Canada.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, it brings together the city’s foremost thought leaders, change makers and everyday people from each discipline and challenges them to deliver powerful, unforgettable and unique TEDxTalks.
The theme of the second annual conference was A Call to Action. A total of 300 spots were reserved for audience members, while thousands more across the country joined via satellite locations and live video stream.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
Mixtape from a brand new artist named Marlon Souler. Never heard of dude and haven’t had a chance to actually take in the tape but he hit us up and I skimmed through it enough to think it was “post-worthy”. Anyways, just another example of how much is going on in the city that we don’t even hear about…
