Brought to you by Live The Culture and Committed4Life, Bangers & Booze will feature music by DJ 2Nice (90s Party), DJ G-Starr (Bricksquad Monopoly DJ) and DJ Bun It All. The dominant sounds will be hip-hop, reggae and party anthems. Hit the jump for more!

Toronto, ON – You may have seen them at a show in Toronto, opening for artists such as Juicy J, Machine Gun Kelly, Wale, and Waka Flocka, but if you haven’t heard of them, allow me to introduce you to ROSxRMG. ROS stands for Ride Out Squad and Remember Our Struggle, and RMG stands for Ride Out Music Group. The group consists of Loonie Blue, A-Cito, Jason Packs, De La Skrilla, and Cap G. The majority of the group is from Jane and Finch, but Loonie Blue is from Rexdale and Jason Packs is from VP. If I had to describe their music, I would personally say that it’s trap. The first track I ever heard from them was “Shamballa” by De La Skrilla and I remember thinking for a second, “Is this guy American?”. I’ve seen them at a couple shows and the entire team (or at least that’s the way it looked) was there, a unit that rolls deep and amps each other on some turnt up trap shit. Continue reading the rest after the jump.
