Abdominal Canadian Music Week Toronto ON, March 5 to 8

Abdominal is a paragon of self-effacing humour. The T.O. local’s cutting verbal barrage was ceaselessly entertaining and his witty wordings unmatchable. Obviously interested in obliterating ego-dripping rap clichés, Abdominal made bling-centric lyrics sound obsolete with his deft flow, poignant intimacy and hilarious satirising. Supported by smooth and tasty funk production, Abdominal continued his dominance as a uniquely skilled hip-hop artist of uncommon intelligence.
