When Choclair’s Ice Cold was released in 1999, it represented a milestone in Toronto hip-hop. But it was just one of many significant releases that year which is arguably one of the finest in the history of the city’s hip-hop scene.
Join moderator Del Cowie and DJ Agile as Choclair, Saukrates, Mathematik, Murr of Da Grassroots and former music industry professional Mansa Trotman take part in an in-depth discussion and play music from some of the classic 1999 Toronto hip-hop albums that turn 20 in 2019.
The following albums will be discussed:
– Choclair – Ice Cold
– Saukrates – The Underground Tapes
– Mathematik – Ecology
– Da Grassroots – Passage Through Time
Featuring panelists Choclair, Saukrates, Mathematik, Murr of Da Grassroots and Mansa Trotman.
