We're so stoked we got to open for the Atlanta hip-hop legend, T.I., this past Saturday, January 21, at the Saskatoon Event Centre for his Us Or Else Canadian Tour. As always, our brothers Mikey Dubz & Kidalgo held it down behind the tables, and our dude Merlando captured our whole set on film. You can peep the footage below.
We were lucky enough to be featured in Chart Attack's yearend article, The Best Music of 2016 from Cities Around Canada. We were featured alongside our good homies Surf Dads and Queen City Stoop Kids, while our girl, fellow Trifecta artist and the 3witch herself, LOA, took the place of Favourite Regina Discovery of 2016 with her single, "Funeral".
