I’m channeling the king #AdRock today up at the @concessionbia #FALLFEST (my previously intended costume isn’t ready yet!) – I’m located in the RBC parking lot with the Jelly Bros and @grainandhue till 5pm! Bring the little ones out for some #trickortreating#HamOnt#fightforyourrighttoparty #beastieboys

I want to thank each and every one of you – everyone involved in the massive production that is the festival – your hard work and determination have been much appreciated by the entire city. You should feel so proud of your efforts! I want to thank everyone who made it out to check out the action over the past 3 days – I hope you all had a fabulous time and thanks to those who stopped by and checked us out! I also want to thank Kevin @sensationalsamosa in the Farmer’s Market as well as Marko @godtoldmetorelax and Tina @66mundo@clubabsinthe for absolutely everything – you guys are incredibly amazing and I love you. Jeff @oldjeffyboy – I can’t believe you held out so long DJing, you are a champ. Also big shout outs to my lovely assistants – Megan @megvdv and Mark @chaos_in_gotham – I couldn’t have done this without you guys, seriously – you saved my life this weekend more times than I can count. Thank you to Tim and Mark at Sonic Unyon for literally changing the face of Hamilton and bringing this festival to life for everyone – what a Herculean task, and yet you make it look so effortless – you guys rock! And last but not least all the amazingly talented vendors and artists who were a part of the markets I ran – you guys are all some of the most creative and wonderful people I’ve met and I hope everyone had a great time – I know it was a lot of hard work but you guys knocked it out of the park. We learned a lot together this weekend – the ups and downs of working a festival are many, but we did it – and it was DOPE AS FUCK. Cheers everyone! AMAZING JOB. 🍾🏆🎉

The Cookout is always one of my favourite yearly events. It combines my love of hip hop, performance, art, and of course – FOOD! I’m stoked to be a part of this amazing event so come check it out if you can, and stop by my booth for some awesome deals!

The Cookout 2016: Hamilton’s Music & Food Festival is on Saturday, August 27th, at the gorgeous Bay City Music Hall on the waterfront. Everyone’s welcome. 2nd Lineup Announcement: Elzhi(Detroit) has been near the top of the list for best lyricists since his days with Slum Village. Performing live in Hamilton for the 1st time in almost 5 years, in support of the new album, “Lead Poison.” Noah23 is a Canadian OG with one of the deepest & wildest discographies in hip-hop. His latest project, “Unicorn EP,” dropped last month. Darenots are a high energy, 4-person Toronto band that rocks a mix of hip-hop, reggae, & heavier sounds. Expect a very LIVE set from them. AM is the duo of Reid Roses & Elley Jeeze. In our opinion, one of Hamilton’s top talents & best kept secrets. DBLCRSS & Leo are a freshly minted duo that recently dropped a BIG debut single. Representing part of HamOnt’s young generation of musicians.

WHAT ABOUT THE FOOD?!? We are so excited MeatVentures, the princes of pork, the barons of beef, the gurus of the grill, and the CANADIAN BACON CHAMPS are returning to feed us. Our new venue allows for the full menu from the meat-wagon. Joining them is the new local venture, Empania, serving a delicious recipe of Puerto Rican-style empanadias. We will have veggie options no doubt!
