(WWETV Network) Toronto’s the talk of the sports world this week as the Toronto Raptors have hosted the first ever NBA Finals outside of the United States. The team is facing the defending NBA Champions who are heavily favored to win, however the Raptors pulled off the win in Game 1 to lead the series.
The city is known worldwide as “The 6ix”, a term Drake popularized in many songs. Toronto is deep in talent and it’s not just for rapping. The producers in the 6ix have also produced for legendary artists from Jay Z to Nas to a plethora of other major artists around the world.
What happens when a talented individual has delved into both arts? You get the skills of a person named Rich Kidd. He is a two-time nominee for the Juno Award for Rap Recording of the Year as a solo artist, garnering nominations at the Juno Awards of 2013 for The Closers and at the Juno Awards of 2014 for In My Opinion.
His latest release was this week with the legendary Canadian hip hop artist Maestro Fresh Wes entitled Jurassic Park. It pays homage to the wild and crazy fan base of the Toronto Raptors and its beloved pit surrounding Scotiabank Center which is this year’s home turf of the NBA Finals.
WorldWide Entertainment TV Toronto was on sight in 2015 for the annual Manifesto event to capture Rich Kidd’s live performance and tribute to fallen rapper Redway who died in a fatal car accident.
