For the second consecutive year, I attended the Manifesto Festival “Live At The Square” hip hop concert at Yonge-Dundas Square.
I was pleased to see JD Era (pictured above) return this year. He is a Toronto-based MC and a damn good one.
This year’s main act was Rakim and Kid Capri. In the late ’80s, Rakim along with his then partner/dj Eric B. created a number of head-bopping hits including my favourites “I Ain’t No Joke” and “Paid in Full.”
