This has been in the works for a min as well. In fact, i've been sitting on this announcement for a few. Long story short, I've been discussing this with my peers, and now I hope the whole city of Toronto comes to see what I feel is a great artist during his rise.
All the way for sunny California will be none other than Stones Throw's Jonwayne, Live in Toronto.
Known to I'm sure many, Jonwayne is a bit of a beast on the boards. Unbeknownst to most until recently, he was an accomplished MC before all that beat stuff went down. He had been in talks w/ Stones Throw well through much of last year before they sealed the deal recently.
With that being said Jonwayne will be in Toronto to perform that goodness that Stones Throw feels will be the start of something very special.
To commemorate the night, we will celebrate by having a night chalk full of Stones Throw's classic catalog - all night. A kind of a old meets new, with vintage bangers and a live performance Jonwayne, the heir to the thrown. Along for the ride will be Never Forgive Action's own Numeric and riding shotgun will be my_man_henri.
