Notes To Self Canadian Music Week Toronto ON, March 5 to 8

This trio of ultra-positive pale MCs had plenty of skilful lyrical flow to cut past their slightly geeky initial appearance. It’s refreshing to hear an unabashed love-rap in recognition of parental support and there was really no need for Notes to explain their goodwill. They oozed community and the crowd was not shy in showing their support. Not the freshest beats in the biz, but definitely some fresh perspective on what hip-hop can talk about.
