vmt: northern flow: the return vol.1

Back in the summer of 2000, I came up with a concept called Northern Flow. A show that was inspired by other Hip Hop jams that were going on at the same time in downtown Toronto. The goal? To manifest Hip Hop culture while educating the new generation about the four elements. I brought the idea to life in Richmond Hill. A decade later, people have many memories of those shows. People have asked me over the years if it will ever return. I never thought it would as the scene has gotten older. However, I realized that we could salvage what's left of us who want to be inspired, educated and keep the culture aspect of Hip Hop alive. This is why, Northern Flow returns May 29th back in the northern land.

In the coming weeks, I'll give you a little sneak peak of what to expect on May 29th when we have a reunion of the heads who liked to body rock. Here's the first installment. Let's Go..
