Recap: Toronto’s 3MFrench & Bvlly show why they’re 2 of Toronto’s best with Ottawa concert
It was a week before Halloween and local Ottawa media company CapCityHipHop decided to hype of the festivities before the big day with an all ages event at The 27 Club.
Budding Toronto rapper 3MFrench, representing Triple M, was billed as the show’s headliner and was joined by special guest and fellow Toronto artist, Bvlly.
But before they hit the stage, the Ottawa crowd was treated to some local talents including Keydus, who recently dropped a new project, Legend Since 99, and kicked off the performances with his single, “Higher.”
Keydus was followed by Ottawa/Gatineau rapper Léon, who showed off his versatility on stage with a performance of his new single, “Le Coeur A L’Ouvrage,” and other songs in his growing catalogue. Next up was Apollo Rae, a rapper who has been making his imprint with back-to-back shows and his high-energy stage presence. Apollo brought up fellow artist NowNotHere to perform new singles “No Silence” and “Fucked Up.”
The last opening act was one of Ottawa’s rising queens, Hai$a, who definitely brought out the crowd for an amazing performance. Hai$a brought out Rico Da Ghost as a guest, and went on to perform her singles “Dolla Bill” and “Luv Ya.”
In between sets Lil Thrilla and DJ Alive from the NuBRLRadio hyped up the crowd with new music and giveaways on behalf of CapCityHipHop. Local clothing line brand DSGM Apparel was also in the building selling merchandise.
With the local acts setting the tone for the evening, Bvlly came out strong, shining with big gold chains and flashy pendents. As fans started to scream, Bvlly got right into performing some of his latest records including “Magicians,” and “Village,” and several other joints from his debut, Made In Austria.
As Bvlly shouted out Ottawa for showing him love, DJ Alive ran the fan favourite single “Ready for War,” which brought 3MFrench to the stage. The pair dropped the single back in February and it remains one of their most popular releases to date.
3MFrench continued his set with the Bvlly-assisted “7am In London,” before jumping into solo records like “On Time” and one of his newest collaborations, “Plan B,” featuring Montreal’s Emina. After just being certified on Instagram, 3MFrench showed the Ottawa crowd why he’s considered one of Toronto’s top artists. His confident delivery and skills were on full display, undoubtedly silencing any naysayers in the process.
When the show was done, 3MFrench and Bvlly greeted fans and took some pictures at a meet and greet. If you missed the concert check out our recap on YouTube below.
