Win two tickets to see Common & Jay Electronica in Toronto [Contest]

Toronto, ON – In case you missed the memo, Common and Jay Electronica are headed to Kool Haus in the T-Dot next month for a stop along Common’s Nobody’s Smiling Tour.

In case you live under a rock or something, Common recently released his latest Nobody’s Smiling album. It’s a heavy album with lots of feelings. And it hit us right in the gut. For real. This is the inner dialogue that happened when I listened to the album: “Remember Common? Yeah, you know Common. He is a rap demigod. He is that dude. Okay. Here’s a monster reminder of that. Thanks. See you later.” Common is one of the cats that got me knee-deep into hip-hop to begin with. So I’m really biased. But I have no doubt this show is going to change your life.

It all goes down on Dec. 11, with doors opening at 8 p.m. Admission is $49.99, and tickets are available online, as well as at Play De Record, Soundscape, and Rotate This.

But since we like to deliver the goods, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Universal Music to give away a pair of tickets to the show. Check out full contest entry details, and peep the official show flyer after the jump.

Contest Entry Details

1. Tweet at us at the handles @HipHopCanada and @universalmusicC
2. Include the hashtag #NobodysSmilingToronto
3. Post the YouTube link to your all-time favourite track by Common.

Easy as that, you’ll be entered in on the giveaway for a pair of tickets. I know, I know – it’s hard to pick just one all-time favourite Common track. I feel the struggle. Good luck.

The show goes down on Dec. 11, but we’ll announce the winner on Dec. 1. So you should probably enter this ASAP. Seriously. Go! Go, go, go, go, go. And on the count of three…go!
