Murda Beatz Says Canadian Audiences Are More Fun Than American Ones

"The fans in Canada just treat every show a lot differently than Americans, or like anyone else"

Murda Beatz has brought his hip-hop instrumentals all over the world, but, to him, the age-old adage rings true — there really is no place like home. 

The Fort Erie-born producer, best known for collaborations with Drake ("Nice for What," "Portland," "No Long Talk") and Travis Scott ("Butterfly Effect," "Sweet Sweet"), was talking to blogTO this weekend when he broke down the difference between Canadian and international crowds.

"I DJ, I tour, I've been everywhere ... there's nothing like coming home to Toronto or coming to even Canada in general," he said. "The fans in Canada just treat every show a lot differently than Americans or anyone else. No shade on anybody, but I'm just saying, the Toronto crowds, they know how to get down."

Murda, born Shane Lee Lindstrom, was back in Toronto participating in the NHL All-Star Celebrity Game alongside Oakville-born The White Lotus star Adam DiMarco, Toronto's Shamier Anderson, Orangeville-born wrestler/actor Adam "Edge" Copeland and more.

Lindstrom's praise for Canadian audiences was just one story we have to thank the NHL All-Stars for — the event also brought us the first Justin Bieber performance in over a year and Michael Bublé's shroomed-out joke.

Check out his full thoughts on why Canadian crowds are superior below.
