Photos: Canadian super-producer Murda Beatz headlines at RBC Ottawa Bluesfest
Starting in a small town in Ontario to becoming an internationally renown Producer/DJ, Murda Beatz was not the one to miss at this year’s Ottawa Bluesfest; with crowds still coming out in droves despite weather postponing some shows.
Murda Beatz came out with two big security guards in tow, red cup in hand while fans went crazy. He yelled, “Ottawa what the fuck is going on? Let’s turn the fuck up,” before going into some of his big hits like “All my Friends are Dead,” and “Motorsport.” He ran through a catalogue of big records he’s been a part of and Ottawa made sure to show the “Nice For What” hit-maker their appreciation.
Murda surprised the crowd with Toronto rap group Prime Boys who also performed a few records. At one point, Murda stopped his set because of fighting, but continued on after things were sorted out.
He recently released the Lil Pump and Sheck Wes-produced “Shopping Spree” which you can check out below.
You can check out the photos of Murda’s Bluesfest performance below. And make sure you also check out photographer Flee Normality’s dope shots of Ottawa hip-hop band BLAKDENIM.
