Hip Hop Summit
Throughout the month of March, CBC celebrates 25 years of Canadian hip hop with the "Hip Hop Summit". One of the highlights is a March 29th concert featuring big-name artists including K'os, Shad, Classified, Cadence Weapon and a veteran from the early days of the genre, "Maestro Fresh Wes" Williams. We spoke with him on Thursday's show.
