Vernon, BC – Those who love their beat with a lot of words know that Vernon has one heckuva hip-hop scene.
The city has churned out some impressive MCs and producers: SonReal, TassNata, Young Catalyst, Nick Brongers, Creative Bloodline, Immaculate are just some of the few who come to mind. And on Saturday, a few more will be added to that list showing what they do best when they open for Vancouver MC Snak the Ripper at Vernon’s 2929 Nite Club. Homeboy Rory MacLeod, aka NOX, is back on the scene and will perform from his just-off-the-press CD, F.E.A.R. Produced by Vernon’s Track Star Productions, owned by Chad Hector and Kyle English, who have previously worked with Immaculate (Julian Wolansky), MacLeod has been working on the record for the past two years.
“In that time, I decided a name change, fresh sound and fresh start would be my newest vision,” he said. “F.E.A.R is the result of a cutting edge creative process, world class sound design and production.”
Along with NOX, DJ Dargas, Stage and Alfy’O, a former Vernon resident will support headliner Snak the Ripper at the 2929 concert. Jaclyn Gee, a 21-year-old hip hop/soul singer-songwriter, is releasing her new album on the same day as the Vernon show. Now living in Vancouver, Gee was born in Surrey and moved frequently throughout her younger years all over B.C. and parts of Alberta. [More]
