April 27, 2010 by Brad Crowfoot
The Common, Urban DNA and TheCyberkrib.com is hyped to bring you…
A special edition of Edmonton’s Monthly Throwback Hip Hop Party
(2009 & 2010 Redbull 3 Style Toronto Champ / Former Project Bounce Radio DJ)
(Emcee/Producer – currently working with Saukrates, K-os, Tona, Drake and more)
As part of the SOARING TO HEAVEN Western Canada Tour
After his landmark victory at the Toronto’s inaugural RedBull 3Style in 2009, and repeat win in 2010, Mensa’s stock has been on a meteoric rise. From the smallest of lounges to thousands in attendance, Mensa has brought parties to life across Canada, the US, and his native Philippines. The roll call of acts he has opened for reads as a who’s who of hip-hop. His residencies across the city have rabid followings, and a slew of side projects and shows have him occupied indefinitely. From the warm-up to cooldown, and everything in between, Mensa is always fully in the know.
True to his namesake, Rich Kidd is naturally gifted producer/rapper and blessed at anything he set his musical mind to. Rich Kidd’s notoriously hypnotic, head-nodding, harmonic and dramatic soundscapes began in Mississauga and his swift, sharp and street-wise rhyme style is a force to be reckoned with. Artists as diverse and esteemed as Drake, Kardinal Offishall, Saukrates, Bishop Brigante, Ill Bill, Raekwon, Cutty Ranks and Sizzla have been seeking out Rich Kidd for his timeless production as well as rapping features.Rich Kidd has an undeniable loyalty and respect from the endless amount of fans he has. His release party in August 2009 for his mixtape “We On Some Rich Kidd Ish” was so overwhelming that the second release party in Dec 2009 was even bigger after word got out how incredible his performances are.
