As an avid east-coast hip hop contributor & supporter (long before I pursued university studies in Halifax), I have always been an adoring Buck 65 (Rich Terfry) fan.
If you have never had the chance to listen to Buck 65’s music, you are missing Canadian lyricism at its finest over experimental sound blending hip hop, blues, country, rock, folk & avant garde.
Having followed Buck 65’s career from Vertex to Synesthesia to Square to Situation to his Dirtbike trilogy, I have watched his artistry grow and flourish across continents. I had the special opportunity to interview him during my university years when he released Secret House Against the World. At the time, Buck 65’s experimental sound had seemed to shift from what hip hop heads were accustomed to from him Stinkin’ Rich era… I admired him for taking that risk thus expanding his prominence and in turn, his international audience.
I have now been invited to tour with Buck 65 across 5 Ontario cities scheduled to perform 7 shows starting this Saturday, Jan. 28 at the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield, QC.
For all the true hip hop heads living in the Ottawa and Toronto areas, I hope you will join us and experience what is Buck 65.
