Vancouver, B.C. – Big Raekwon took over Fortune Sound for his second time this Wednesday night with fellow IceH2O soldier JD Era. With a slew of openers getting the crowd up and anticipated for the man himself, the hype only made it all the more sweet when The Chef took the stage.
Spinning tracks between openers was Vancity legend Kilo Cee, who kept it fresh and funky all night leading into West Coast specialties Conscience. Three dudes and a little lady made for a melodic but up-beat introduction with “No Regrets” to the hundred-something white boys lining the front of the stage. St.John’s own Stack Steady kept it “swag” with their rowdy antics and-in-your face style. MCs Dunn Hustle and John Saint kept on a steady “fuck haters, get money” rhyme spree while still managing to keep tracks diverse and even breaking out an East Coast spliff for a reagge-infused banger. Wrapping up the local talent was Household, who had a few of Fortune Sound Club’s very own employees joining forces and spitting out Wu-customized rhymes as well as an “Otis” remix and tracks like “Fuck Your Life”.
