Over the past thirty years or so, the world of Rap and Hip Hop has gone through quite an interesting ride. From the block parties of New York City, to the highest ranks of fame and fortune in Forbes magazine, Hip Hop has created a platform for self expression in it’s rawest, most direct way, which has resonated and communicated with the various different groups of people around the world. Back in Toronto, the Molson Amphitheatre was the host to Wiz Khalifa, one of the freshest voice and a leaderof the new school of Hip Hop who was also the headliner of the night.
The 26 years old Warner Bros. Records artist was back with his Under the Influence of Music tour, and was well received by the fully packed venue. Going through some of his hits, Wiz Khalifa brought up the energy of the music to the max and shared it with the wave of his fans. Black or white, big or small, high or sober, what gathered everybody in the same place was music, the point that was made crystal clear in the most expressive, groovy way imaginable.
P.S. Drake showed up on the stage to accompany Wiz Khalifa with a hits-medley , including “Trophies” and “Started From the Bottom”. That was the trophy winner for the most insane moment of the show.
