'Look what my daddy did!': Northern Touch All-Stars on representing rap and fatherhood at the Junos
We talked to Kardinall Offishall, Rascalz, Checkmate, Thrust and Choclair after their Juno appearance.
When Northern Touch All-Stars (Rascalz, Checkmate, Kardinal Offishall, Thrust and Choclair) presented the Juno Award for rap recording of the year to Tory Lanez, and then did an impromptu performance of their hit "Northern Touch," the crowd lost it.
"We bum-rushed the Junos, that's what we did," said Kardinal Offishall in the media room following the performance.
Thrust added that they were proud to represent not only rap and hip-hop in a meaningful way at this year's Juno Awards, but also fatherhood. "All of us had our kids in the last five, six years," he said, "so they never seen any of this!"
