What's good Mr. Williston,
I wanted to drop you a line and offer any support to your endeavor.
I was with the Get Loose Crew in the early 1980's as MC Shadow. Our notoriety is that we were the first Canadian Hip Hop record to be sold outside of Canada (and In Canada) WORLDWIDE...
The news hasn't broke yet but there is a world renowned and respected university conducting a research project on the REAL history and roots of Hip Hop in Canada. It's origins, its roots, etc., and WHO was there, and WHAT they did... I've watched a lot of politickin', squablin' and inaccurate reppin' of the way it was back in the day and WHO can actually back in it up NOW with documents etc...
On a positive tip... Get Loose Crew has finally gotten the documented REAL TRUTH and recognition in the History books that is deserved. NOT tryin to climb over anyone, nor put anyone down. Just ensuring that our seat at the table is present, prepared and recognized...
I have been described as "Architect in Canadian Hip Hop Music and Culture dating back to 1984" there are other accolades or recognition that the research study has attributed to me and I am humbled by all of it... It's been a long road and I am blessed to have been at the earliest days and moments of Canadian Hip Hop... I understand that my legacy will be preserved in various incredible forms and I have turned over many artifacts for display and archival storage.
This is expected to be released and unleashed soon - I look forward to it, as I believe it will lend credit and bolster your project, which I feel deserves much more attention!!!
If there is anything I can do to lend support without making promises at this point, please let me know.
Peace and blessings to you my brother, keep up the great site!
