Legends of the Fame – Represent, Trade and Collect: Now back in Toronto for Round 2 [News/PSA]
Toronto, ON – In January 2011, Fred E Fame and The 5th Artist Development Agency presented the first series of the Legends of the Fame Great Canadian Hip-Hop Card Collection. Making history, this is the first of its kind to go national across Canada. Sponsored by HipHopCanada.com, the cards celebrate Canadian hip-hop artists, producers, DJs and industry movers. While the cards give a nod to the the next generation of hip-hop they also include some major players, including Juno and Grammy award winners.
The first edition of the Legends of the Fame cards was released in Toronto, with a focus on T-dot talent, which quickly spread a buzz from coast to coast. The first Toronto series honoured DJ Law with a signature series card for his contribution to hip-hop culture. Law’s card auctioned off at $1000 which was donated to the Remix Project – furthering the goal of cultivating and celebrating Canadian hip-hop.
With the success of the first series in Toronto, and the expansion from Vancouver to Halifax, the second Toronto series is set for release in March. The second Toronto series signature card honors recording artist Mayhem Morearty. Mayhem is the co-founder of Hustlemann, the Out Here Movement and Mosaic Music. Mayhem has relentlessly offered his talent and time to hip-hop. He is a Mosaic Music/E1 artist and is considered one of Canada’s best hip-hop MCs. He hails form the Lawrence Heights projects of Toronto (aka The Jungle) and is known for several independent releases such as Back to the Future, Out Here and The Hunger – as well as singles and videos like “Rock n Roll,” “Anything’s Possible,” “Late Night Creep,” “Go Dumb” and included collaborations with artists like Drake, JRDN, Kurupt , Young Kazh and several others. Mayhem is currently working on his album The Anarkist’s Cookbook and his Best of Both Worlds-style album with RnB sensation JRDN entitled The Yazzle Brothers.

The official release date and party for the next Legends of the Fame Toronto edition is March 18th with hundreds of people already signed up and eager to take part in this compelling Canadian campaign.
“We are committed and will make sure that every city in Canada is well represented” says Fred E Fame, Production Manager behind the card project, “and the goal is to direct the right demographic to our home-grown talent”.
