Went to the historic Rio Theatre last night. Saw a new documentary called Hip Hop Eh. Was a film about the Canadian Hip Hop scene. It was a very truthful film.

I used to watch him on Much Music growing up. Now he interviews lots of sweet rappers too.

He quickly developed an appreciation for the culture, which also allowed him to rise above other challenges and prove to be the littlest biggest deal in Vancouver.
