Review: Bone Thugs-n-Harmony eases into to Edmonton on the Eternal Tour

Edmonton, ABOriginally published September 25, 2015 – Nightshift Entertainment has been on quite the hot-streak this month, supporting shows from The One Love Music Festival, Akon and Machine Gun Kelly’s Road Trippin Tour. This time the homies teamed up with Spotlight Concerts to present Bone Thugs-n-Harmony’s Eternal Tour, a once-in-a lifetime event where the group performed E.1999 Eternal in its entirety. Take a minute to think about that.

On September 17, the Eternal Tour made a stop at Edmonton’s Union Hall before heading on to Vancouver and Calgary. By 10 p.m. the line-up [outside the club] was about half way down the parking lot, a rare thing to see at a rap show in our city. Then again… its Bone Thugs.

The “I Am Hip Hop” Award, recognizing legends in hip-hop music, returns to honor legendary rapper Scarface. Scarface is undoubtedly one of the most prolific rappers of all time.

Mooky is a “Nominee For Most Passive-Aggressive” in his new video

Brampton, ON – Up-and-coming Brampton artist Mooky recently released his accompanying video for the track “Nominee For Most Passive-Aggressive“.

It’s been a minute since the song came out at the very beginning of 2015. But I’m glad the song is finally getting proper video treatment. As soon as that opening line comes through, I’m done: “Just open up and let him in/ 20 on the lettermen/ Yo ’cause he’s a veteran/ Send a dollar his way/ ‘Cause he ain’t seen a pension or benefit since 08’/ Fresh without the colgate.”

The video was directed by Omar Nolehce, and the song was produced by Vulfpeck. Check it out after the jump.
