Fortune, Vancouver, B.C
Certainly no stranger to the stage at Fortune, Raekwon certainly draws an energetic crowd, and for those a little cold, on this clear Wednesday night, a superb crew of opening acts helped warm up the pan for the Chef.
Starting out the night was local Vancity veteran, Kilo Cee, who laid down a more than respectable set, leading into a trio of heavy hitters known as Conscience with help from Noah B of the Random Humans, who certainly added a unique layer to this very special show. Stack Steady, Dunn Hustle and John Saint all rounded out a very Canadian night with a diverse mix of crazy in your face antics, and steady to the point beats and rhymes.
If Canadian Hip Hop is to make a splash in the US, solid Canadian acts like these are a great step towards that goal.
