1. Two old colleagues of mine - @dankojones and @ErrolNazareth - have opened up important conversations about race & the Canadian music industry, particularly in light of apparent disconnects between everyday practice and newfound 'black square' activism - #clicktivism.
2. As I read these threads, I’m getting hit with deja vu - feels exactly like #TDot frustrations in the late 90s, when Toronto rap was on the rise, yet none of the major labels were signing them. Hesitation everywhere. I wrote a research story on this in '98 for @exclaimdotca.
3. Eventually, @Choclair got his deal, but the Canadian music industry tried to play a silver-bullet solution by investing in just ONE rapper, playing it safe - precisely the opposite of how American and British record companies operate when they see a hot music trend.
