If you’ve ever referred to Toronto as “Tdot,” a term coined by K4ce, a local hip hop legend or by its more recent name, “The 6ix” influenced largely by the OVO team and rapper Drake’s recent album, ‘Views from the 6,” then you are familiar with the far reaching influence of Canadian Hip Hop.

Recognizing the potential for hip hop to transcend intergenerational barriers, Dr. Mark Campbell, Ontario Certified school teacher and Professor at Ryerson University, and his team, created the Northside Hip Hop Archive (NSHH) and a series of accompanying archival exhibits to re-engage students at all grade levels and preserve an integral piece of Canadian history. The NSHH is intended to be a tool to produce engaging, new curriculum content for school boards across Canada.

Dr. Campbell currently teaches two inclusive courses on Race & Racism in Popular Culture from Antiblackness to Intersectionality and Sonic Innovations in Black Musics: From Dubplates to Controllerism at Ryerson RTA. “Uncovering hip hop histories in Canada are essential work if we are to imagine an inclusive, multicultural and diverse country. Without access to the successes, innovations and creativity of previous generations, we cannot provide in the classroom a solid context the next generation to strive towards excellence,” says Dr. Campbell.

Since the archive launched in 2010, there have been multiple archival exhibits held to raise public awareness. On March 4th 2010, NSHH held its first exhibit, the T-Dot Pioneers Exhibition in Toronto. A year later, CBC and NSHH joined forces to launch “The Hip Hop Summit,” a week-long celebration of Canadian hip hop.

In November of 2016, NSHH Archive in association with the Royal Ontario Museum, Ryerson University and The Masterplan Show at CIUT 89.5fm launched its first ever Archive Fellows honouring the lifetime achievements of Toronto’s DJ Ron Nelson from CKLN’s Fantastic Voyage Show (1983-1990) and the visual art of Hamilton’s Leon ‘Eklipz’ Robinson.

Also in 2016, the NSHH started the “I Was There” project, a community activation project honouring the work of various hip hop culture pioneers in five cities across Canada which started in 2016 and is continuing into 2017. “The I Was There project is about acknowledging the Architects of hip hop communities in several Canadian cities as well as about creating public awareness and appreciation about hip hop’s legacy in our country,” says Dr. Campbell.

The “I Was There” project celebrates the accomplishments of little known hip hop legends in Canada, adding personalized archival collections and narration to the existing archival content on www.nshharchive.ca. This year’s exhibits will be held in Montreal, Saskatoon, Hamilton, Toronto and Regina.

Over the years, participants have included legendary Canadian names in hip hop such as: Dalton Higgins, Citizen Kane, Ghetto Concept, Michie Mee, Kardi, K’naan, Dream Warriers, Saukrates, Shad, DJ Ron Nelson, Leon’ Eklipz’ Robinson, DJ Kool Herc and more.

Recently, Mr. Campbell was on our show talking about the Northside Hip Hop Archives.

During our conversation, Mr. Campbell talked about:

– Some of his early hip hop memories
– The story behind his hip hop show that he started in the 1990’s at eighteen years old for seventeen years
– How did Northside Hip Hop Archives start
– Some of the stories and people that are featured via Northside Hip Hop Archives
– How has the Toronto hip hop scene has changed
– The future of the Northside Hip Hop Archives
– The state of Canadian Hip Hop
– What is on the website

The C.A.L.L. is a collaborative effort between Dr. Towanna Freeman and 17 male co-authors who worked to create the ground-breaking anthology. Each of the individuals who contributed to the book had a story to tell that was relevant to an entire generation of young Black men. The contributors’ life stories inspire, motivate and connect with young men to empower, create new opportunities and give them hope.

In its February 2016 pre-launch, The C.A.L.L. soared to the #1 spot in three different categories- Cultural Heritage, Inner Child and Leadership.

With the previous and current spate of events involving the victimization of young black men, The C.A.L.L is a very timely resource. Young men, especially those on the threshold of subscribing to the negative stereotypes created by society, are invited to answer The C.A.L.L and step up to their inherent greatness. The one message that Freeman hopes the readers grasp is that they are important and can make a difference.

Recently, we had four co-authors appeared on the show. They were: Dr. Nicholas Dillon, Kevin Johnson, Dr. William L. Howard and Claude McFarlane.

The gentlemen discussed:

– How did they get involved with The C.A.L.L.
– Where they hesitant to share their story and their contribution to the book
– The feeling when they finished their contribution and is there something that they have found out something about themselves that they did not know
– How can young men of color relate to their stories
– Some of the challenges for today’s young men of color
– Their thoughts on the future of young men of color in America
– The impact that The C.A.L.L. has had on them and the impact that they would like to have
