On Saturday, December 16, Toronto had the opportunity to check out LIFTED - a showcase putting bold, enterprising artists on the map. The event was held at Adelaide Hall, delivered in partnership with local collective, Jesso Media, and comprised of a solid and diverse lineup of rappers and singers, representative of Toronto's growing Hip-Hop scene, and international newcomers alike.
Headlined by LA's young R&B phenom, Ye Ali, the venue drew in a huge crowd that arrived early for talent from home and abroad. Montreal's incredible and fierce, Zeina , London, ON's impeccably smooth, Emanuel Assefa, trap rapper Hawi Quintana, Los Angeles' brazen VNCHY, and lyrical lord, Troy Phoenix were on the bill.
SRRYINADVANCE's Gianmarco Policelli stopped by to capture the vibe. Check out the gallery below, and delve into the sounds of LIFTED.
