Toronto, ON – When you think about the evolution of Canadian hip-hop, there are several people that come to mind who have played an instrumental role in the growth and progression of our urban music industry. One of these people is pioneer and godfather of Canadian rap, Maestro Fresh Wes. Recently, in Toronto, he celebrated 25 years in the music industry with a party where he was amongst family, friends and supporters. Here is a special ‘thank you’ note from Maestro:

“My passion for music has not only allowed me to become a recording artist, but has also granted me the opportunity to transition into acting, writing, and motivational speaking. It has been an honour to work with so many recording artists, musicians, producers, vocalists, song writers and engineers. I thank all of you for 25 years of support, love and inspiration.”

Check out footage from the party below and download his new album after the jump.

Natasha was born and raised in Toronto. She graduated from York University almost 2 years ago and since then has co-founded a youth led, social enterprise called The Next Edition which uses media and art to engage youth with their community. For the past year and a half she has been working with young aspiring artists who are looking for a way to showcase their skills and have their voice heard. With juggling weekly meetings, managing a website, and planning events for hundreds of people Natasha takes refuge in urban music. Researching and knowing the latest headlines, and newest tracks in the hip-hop world is something that she loves. But more importantly for her hip-hop is a lot more than just a genre of music, it is a culture and it has shaped who she is today. Finding a way to combine her passion for music, the knowledge she has gained from working with young people and the issues she has seen in the community is a goal Natasha would like to achieve in the near future. Recently, Natasha has taken on PR work for rappers and DJs.
