Feb 12: Before the 6ix: Classic 1999 Toronto Hip-Hop Albums – Black History Month

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.

 

This event is part of TPL’s Black History Month programming. For the full lineup visit: tpl.ca/blackhistory.
