Historic Hip-Hop Live in the Prairies – Cormega and Rahzel to play Calgary [News]
Calgary, AB – *UPDATE* Tonight’s Rahzel show at Dickens has been postponed to May 11th. The Beatbox King is stuck in NYC with plane delays. We’ll have to wait a couple more weeks, and then your boy will bring you some inside access to the man too.
You can’t be walking a block in this city without catching a bounce of the hip-hop scene that seems like it hasn’t stopped blowing up for well over a year. You know we at HipHopCanada are always going to keep you plugged in to what’s popping off in Calgary – this week, we go old school with two shows featuring three legends in the game being brought in by the good folks at True Rhythm. Cormega, Large Professor and Rahzel all grace our city this week! Check out the details after the jump.
First off, Cormega and Large Professor kick off on Thursday bringing the blocks of Queensbridge to Dickens Pub. Known for their decades in the game and hitting the spotlight in collaborations with Nas, the legends of the game will share the stage for the night. Some of Calgary’s finest will set the night off right, with Suicide Kings, Random Humans, Nki Louise, Role Model, Tactiks, The Mic, Bobby Danger & 8 EM, Willy Snypes and Ms. Teaze all representing the yyc and rocking the stage.

And you know Friday is not going to be outdone by Thursday. The Godfather of Noyze brings it like only he can at Dickens the next day. Along with DJ JS-1, Rahzel comes back to Calgary and will sure to give us all a lesson on how the master handles the beatbox. To set the tone, we’ve got a Beatbox and a Hip Hop Showcase full of local cats. Beatboxers Ominous, Triple T, Eazy G, Phoneme, Busy Beatz, and Puppet Master will rock it for y’all while Definite, Aon, ContraVerse, Verblei, and Soul Sisters will represent for MCs.
