Toronto, ON – As previously reported on HipHopCanada, Andreena, formerly known as Andreena Mill, is embarking on a new chapter in her musical career with a weekly online series called Hip Hop Chronicles, where she performs renditions of her favourite current and older hip-hop records.
Her first installment was a cover of Future’s “Turn on the Lights” and last week she brought us her second cover to Trinidad James’ hit, “All Gold Everything.” The range in her creativity is just amazing!

Toronto, ON – Hopsin performed in Toronto on January 10th for the first of 3 shows on his mini Canadian tour. The Funk Volume family, which consisted of Hopsin, Dizzy Wright and DJ Hoppa (unfortunately SwizZz wasn’t in attendance) performed a turnt up set at the Phoenix Concert Theatre. After their last show in Toronto was cancelled in October due to a problem getting across the Canadian border, their fans were anxiously awaiting their return. To make up for lost time they put on a no holds barred show with crazy antics that included multiple stage dives, lots of crowd surfing and a rap contest. Hopsin hand-picked several fans to come up on stage and give their best shot at 16 bars while the crowd judged with boos and cheers. Overall, they put on one of the best shows I’ve ever seen, very original and so much fun.
