HOMETOWN HEROES May 2, 2008

So my brother is a DJ and is in a band called HERO. Since I’m a loving sister and I want them to do well, I thought I would use this platform for a shameless plug of his gig on Friday. Check out this making of a video video on Facebook, My brother is DJ Taktiks.

The Academy loves their hometown Canadian talent, and we’d like you to show your love as well. Toronto hip hop fans have continued to show love to the out-of-town A-list, however a significant portion of those who love hip hop in the TDot, do not show the same support to the amazing local talent we have at home. There’s many who talk the talk, but don’t walk the walk as far as supporting their own, and this situation needs to change. Having confidence and pride in our local hip hop, will translate to their success internationally. A revival and re-birth of Toronto and Canadian hip hop is a necessity, and that begins with recognizing our HOMETOWN HEROES.
