Vancouver, B.C. – Fortune Sound Club proved a worthy forum for some of the best hip-hop in Western Canada, particularly when viewed by Rhymesayers rep Jason “J-Bird” Cook, brought out by Krafty Entertainment. Kyprios hosted, while artists from the Prairies and West Coast alike grabbed their fifteen minutes to impress…Transit and Def3 represented Calgary and Regina, respectively, while CityReal, SonReal, Snak and Evil showed what Vancouver has to offer.

Not hard to imagine what J-Bird might have been thinking as he watched the performers and the crowd heat up. Transit got things off to an upbeat start, his easy lyricism and earnest flow representing the vast space of the Prairies. Def 3, accompanied by the gorgeous songstress Tonye Aganaba, gave a twist to the night with Chad Taylor on the trumpet and some South American flavor to his seamless vocals. Next up was Cityreal, whose recent album with blues legend Wes Mackey translated easily to the stage and set things up for the grimy Snak the Ripper. Even with a noticeable loss of his voice, Snak put up a good fight and got sassy with the crowd amid shouts of “SDK” from the Stompdown Killaz Family. Evil picked up on this vibe and presented his own gritty flows on some dance-worthy beats, then Son Real closed out the night with a fresh young sound that had fans rapping along to his every word. It was a night to make our Coast proud!
