The Godfather of Canadian hip hop: Maestro Fresh Wes is a pioneering hip-hop recording artist. His debut album, Symphony in Effect, was the first album by a Black Canadian artist to be certified platinum. “Let Your Backbone Slide” is still one of the most successful and influential Canadian songs of all time.
Last month I found myself at Advertising Week in New York City. While there I had the opportunity to witness a few hip hop acts including Common and The Roots.
