The Canadian hip hop scene was established in the 1980s. Through a variety of factors, it developed much slower than Canada’s popular rock music scene, and apart from a short-lived burst of mainstream popularity from 1989 to 1991, it remained largely an underground phenomenon until the early 2000s.
Underground hip hop is an umbrella term for hip hop music outside the general commercial canon. It is typically associated with independent artists, signed to independent labels or no label at all. Underground hip hop is often characterized by socially conscious, positive, or anti-commercial lyrics.
A Canadian artist who is bursting into the elite up in coming Toronto HipHop scene is Mississaugas own Jullius Ice. Blood sweat and tears Jullius Ice has been making quite the independent name for himself especially with his latest project ‘A Horrible Human’ available on all digital platforms now.
