I was in attendance during the 2nd conference based on the Slang Rap Democracy and it was a beautiful thing to see the HIP HOP community share there experiences,emotions,trials and tribulations. Some had their say on having more female presence on the panel because there was only 1 up there. Topics were thrown back and forth like a realistic classification for the term success,how to how artists can better interact with fans, weather Montreal artist's actually have talent and so forth. There was tears and there were laughs. But let it be known, Montreal does have a Hip Hop community. In attendance was Mario Reyes Fuentes, Rickey D Daley, Urbn-Logix, Vincent Pryce, Full Course from LabNoise, Aïsha Cariotte Vertus, Shelz, Dj SevDee, Elonskee, Dirtwork, Don Smooth, The Narcicyst and more.. The video's below are from last years assembly.
