The First Annual Original 6 Showcase - Artist Information

“I’m not worried about these other rappers, I’m not competing with those guys. I already know their hand, I know their move. I study everything. I’m worried about the kid that’s sitting in his house that wants to be better than me and all those guys. That’s who I’m competing with,” - Drizzy Drake


Who was Aubrey before Drake and who was Abel before The Weeknd - Both of these Toronto artists were just local guys trying to make a name for themselves. They were just like YOU. But the right person saw them, appreciated their talent and now they’re on top of the game!

This can be YOU, all it takes is hard work, dedication, and the right partnerships. That’s where we come in. We want to help showcase your talent to the 6 and to the world!




The goal of our First Annual Original 6 Showcase is to celebrate Toronto’s urban art & culture.

You could be an aspiring Hip Hop rapper, R&B singer, a hip-hop dancer, or even a talented graffiti artist. If you are from the 6 and want a platform to show the city your craft, we want you to be part of our First Annual Original 6 Showcase! Artists if you're interested follow the link below.
