As far as the performances, here is a quick recap to get you started. HipHopCanada’s Chantle Beeso will hit you up with a more in-depth review on Wednesday. A-Game opened the show performing their new single “Airplanes”. Karl Wolf later performed his single “Yalla Habibi” and most notably, Belly closed the show with a crazy new remix to his single “Hot Girl” this featuring Mayhem Morearty and Parma Court’s Big Lean. Canadian rap superstar Drake was in attendance and was the target of a lot of playful jabs from host Trixx. Drake predictably won Hip-Hop Single of the Year.
In his acceptance speech he took time to shout-out and thank the many Toronto artists that he has worked with in the past including Slakah The Beatchild and JD Era. He finished his acceptance speech by saying “if you can’t show your face in this room, then there’s a problem.” Whether or not this was directed at anyone specific is unknown but as far as we know, Page was not in attendance.
