NXNE 2009 Hip-Hop Extravaganza

Besides the fact that Toronto has no shortage of local hip-hop talent, this is a doozy of a week to be in the city for a chance to witness some of the best there is. The venerable North By North East is in the building and The Academy along with TheCyberKrib.com have put together something truly outstanding. Thursday through Sunday is a hip-hop lover’s delight. Don’t forget the extended 4am bar hours for the entire fest!

Here’s the breakdown for all the events:

My good friends at Roundtable Entertainment, many of whose excellent parties you’ve seen pictures of right here in Dope-A-Lot land are throwing one of their massive 2000 Til. joints on Friday, so if you’re looking for more of a club vibe, and arguably the best looking ladies in town (yes, girls who like hip-hop!!), be sure to drop by the Skybar. Word.
