Welcome to The Best Lack All Conviction Blog
This blog is not about anything other than the things I want to write about.
For a long time this blog tried to be about darts and may yet again talk about darts
but for now it is about whatever suits my fancy.
If that entertains, engages or inspires you, then I guess we are in good company.
My sister also has a blog that is written by her pet border collie
Callum the Border Collie ands his Autistic Human
Please follow her page and show her some support. She has been having a tough time living alone since our mother passed from cancer.
So maybe a bit of a weird topic for me, as I'm touching on a topic that I'm not really any kind of an expert on.
Right now, the biggest rappers/hip hop artists out of Toronto are obviously Drake, and 'The Weekend' but does that mean the Toronto doesn't have a hip hop legacy?
So, here are my picks for Toronto, from back in the day' In order of equal greatness I start with..
Maestro Fresh Wes
Here we have a bit of Reggae flavour that earned him more than a couple of accolades in Jamaica and a lamentable spoof by Jim Carey that was well off the mark.
This takes a bit of set up as it is a personal and sentimental favourite.
I proposed to my now wife of 10 + years on the swan ride at Centre Island in Toronto
So, worst choice of her life, but obviously she said yes.
Immediately after, with us both feeling the bliss of true love we went on what is really the best ride at Centre Island, The Scrambler!!!!
And as we spun around in our disco light bliss, K'Naan imbedded himself in our personal history. Much like a waving flag.
So, as I said I am no expert, and have no real idea what is happening right now, in Toronto with rap/hip hop etc. I just think there is some history that needs to be maintained. So, thank you for reading, and I'll see you next time when it is time to... drop the needle.
