Ricca Razor Sharp North By Northeast Toronto ON June 11 to 15

Placed in the daunting position as the only hip-hop act on an acoustic bill paired with an apathetic audience in attendance just to pick up their wristbands and passes, Calgary rapper Ricca Razor Sharp still gave it his all for a fun set of tunes likely to translate really well for his one a.m. slot at the Boat. This was most evident in his medley of hits like "Groove Is In the Heart” and "Gin & Juice,” assisted by a cute, fun-loving female singer. Ricca’s own hit song "Aya (Spin Your Head Back Round)” was also a party starter that turned a few nearby heads.
