Calgary, AB – Our friends over at True Rhythm just announced that they are bringing Kool G Rap and AZ’s Living Legends Tour to Calgary on Dec. 7. The show goes down at Republik Nightclub (219 – 17 Ave SW), with doors opening at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are $29.99 for general admission and $44.99 for V.I.P., plus service charges. Tickets are available for purchase via TrueRhythm.ca and in stores at The Next Level, Grassroots, Le Rock, or Sloth Records.
Kool G Rap – also known as the Kool Genius of Rap— is one of hip-hop’s most legendary MCs. He’s better known as one half of the Kool G Rap & DJ Polo duo, as well as a member of the Juice Crew. He’s got a signature hardcore style with complex rhyme schemes that have paved the way for so many of the greats. AZ is lesser known, and is incredibly underrated. He’s a frequent collaborator with Nas, and a member of the disbanded super group, The Firm (with Foxy Brown, Cormega, Nature, and – of course— Nas). Watching Kool and AZ will be one of the best throwbacks (or comebacks) ever.
