The Golden Tour: Relic, GhettoSocks, and Fresh Kils live in Calgary [News]
Calgary, AB – On Feb. 25, our friends over at Beat Street West and Shaolin Sundays bring Relic, GhettoSocks, and Fresh Kils to Dickens Pub (1000 – 9 Ave SW) in Calgary for a stop along the Golden Tour.
These three dudes are some of Canada’s finest hip-hop heavyweights. So it’s going to be unreal having them all in the YYC at once. Doors to the venue open at 9 p.m. and cover is $10. Opening support for the evening will be provided by Attikus, Immaculate, and DJ Cosm & Stefan (Shaolin Sundays). Peep event details after the jump.
Relic hails from the T-Dot, and is touring to support his new EP entitled Golden. Relic has been rapping, singing, and making beats for more than 20 years. You may be familiar with his collaborations with the likes of Shad and Saukrates. He’s also won multiple Juno Awards for his work on Shad’s Old Prince and TSOL albums.
GhettoSocks is one rapper that most of you are probably familiar with. He’s touring in support of his new album entitled For All You Pretty Things (he might be referring to you on that one, if you’re lucky). He’s a Juno-nominee, as well as one of CBC’s top 25 ranked rappers of all time. He has toured with Sadat X, El Da Sensia and the Herbalizer.
Fresh Kils is one half of the Extremities, as well as one of Canada’s best producers. You may remember that time he won Toronto’s acclaimed Sound Battle Royale competition. Because it was great.
For more event information, peep the event’s official Facebook page. And don’t forget to tune in to CJSW on Sunday afternoons for some of the freshest hip-hop around (most of which is Canadian). Stefan gets things going with the Knotted Roots show from 3 p.m. until 4 p.m. (MDT). And then DJ Cosm (who you may also know as Dragon Fli Empire’s master producer) brings it with the Mental Illness show from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. (MDT). That’s right. Straight-up hip-hop and urban jams. Every single Sunday afternoon. It’s one of life’s little pleasures. You can stream the shows online via the CJSW website.
