Tour Tales of Masta Ace, Marco Polo and Stricklin – Hamilton [Photos/Blog]

Hamilton, ON – As some of the U.S. and Canada’s premier hip-hop acts make their way across the country (see tour dates below), HipHopCanada is tracking their progress. We’ve asked Masta Ace, Marco Polo and Stricklin to send us some of their favorite sights and sounds of a town near you, and will be providing you with regular photos and updates from the artists themselves. First stop? Hamilton. So see what kind of trouble the guys are getting into, and get ready to check out their live show.

Dear Diary Masta Ace

Masta Ace recalls:

“Had a pre-show lunch today at Ya-man in Hamilton!
I had the jerk chicken, spinach and mango salad. It was bangin’!”

“Then we “Rocked the Casbah””

Dear Diary

Marco Polo reports:

“Hammer/Steel City. My first time performing here. Caught the ill, vintage CFL/grey cup poster backstage of The Casbah. Wanted to steal it! Crowd was live tho, perfect way to kick off the tour. Thank you Hamilton!

Dear Diary Marco Polo

Stricklin sez:

“On tour, soundcheck can sometimes be somewhat stressful. However, Hamilton, ON was smooth as ever! While there, I was able to snap a shot of a banner representing THE place in Hamilton to buy Hip-Hop! If you’re looking to scratch your Hip-Hop itch, I was told Dr. Disc is the place to be! Established in 1991, it has withstood the test of time! DR. DISC #SALUTE!!”
