Dan-e-o & Lindo P perform on Electric Circus in 1991 [Video] #VintageVideos
Toronto, ON – Oh we’re definitely liking this idea. In anticipation of the “Get Up On It” music video from the new Dan-e-o album, Inevitable, the Toronto vet has released the first in a series of #VintageVideos! First up we have Partners In Rhyme (Dan-e-o & Lindo P) performing “Can’t Test Me” live on Citytv/MuchMusic’s infamous Electric Circus show, back in May 1991.
This video captures a then 13-year-old Dan-e-o and his first-ever live television performance. It is also the oldest known footage of the veteran Toronto MC in circulation. Filmed on May 4, 1991, Citytv’s Electric Circus set the stage to launch Dan-e-o’s career as he and Lindo P won the show’s LL Cool J “Rap-Off Contest” as the duo, Partners In Rhyme.
Dan-e-o went on to record a version of the song to start off his classic album debut, The Book of Daniel, released back in 2000. Lindo P would later rejoin Dan-e-o in 2004 on his second album, See No Evil, Hear No Evil, on the song “Amazing.”
