The First Original 6 Showcase

The First Original 6 Showcase

Venue check, kick ass comedian host check, flutist check, singers check, rappers check, killer DJ check. Sometimes things just happen to work out. The First Original 6 Showcase turned out to be exactly what we envisioned. Bring a bunch of people from the 6 together and celebrate local talent. We had an exceptional pool of talent come through the doors of Crawford on College and each one got a chance to show off their skills in front of a crowd who were so into the show they care that the AC wasn't working (PS sorry about that!). We could not have...

What Is The Original 6?

The Original 6 Logo

A lot of you have asked us how we came up with the name The Original 6 so we thought we would share our vision behind forming the name.

When we were creating The Original 6, we had one objective: to create an apparel based brand that is driven by it’s community of Torontonians/6ixers who share the same love for the city that we do.

In order to do this we needed to come up with a name that speaks to Toronto today, still has meaning tomorrow, and...

Drizzy Draft Day Series

Drake loves sports. We know that because he goes out of his way to prove it to us. A sports team also employs him, the 6’s own Toronto Raptors. He frequently shows up in disguise, dressed like a grandmother sitting courtside, but Drake, we know it’s you. In previous musical projects, Drake makes several sports references so I figured it’d be time to go through his newest project (If You're Reading This It's Too Late) and break them all down. They’re graded on levels of awkwardness because of that time he showed up at Kentucky, and did everything the men’s...
