The annual Xmas Wrap is a London, Ontario tradition. It is the biggest rap show of the year and features tons of great performances.
This year for the 13th Annual Xmas Wrap, the entire concert was broadcast live to air on Radio Western.
It featured a special reunion of Toolshed (Timbuktu, Chokeules, Psybo). They hadn’t performed live together in years but made it look like they had never taken a day off. Their show was amazing.
Sum-01 debuted brand new material and blessed the stage with an energetic live performance.
Kiv performed a set that had the crowd chanting his name and demanding an encore. He was backed up on the 1s and 2s by DJ Chase March. TJ Edwards (formerly known as Del Reze) also joined him for two songs.
Joe Tunes kicked off the night with a music set featuring some holiday-themed music. Tyler Hetherington held it down as the host of the event. And Uncle Ando manned the boards making sure the night’s festivities were broadcast live on the radio. He did mini-interviews throughout the night and help keep the party moving for anyone who could not be there live.
Thesis Sahib showed his technical skills as he made his circuit bent toys shine as the backdrop for his vocals and raps.
There was a small technical problem but Chase March saved the day with a little impromptu beatbox session.
And then Branded Moore, Exit Only, and Kyle Kanevil delighted the crowd with a hype performance of their classic songs and a freestyle or two.
DJ Hullewud provided the music for most of the acts and spun some great tunes throughout the night.
It was a great event and was recorded for prosperity (wrinkles and all)
