The Halifax Urban Folk Festival is excited to partner with Dartmouth’s New Scotland Brewery in Dartmouth to present Wolf Castle and LXVNDR, two of the coolest, youngest, hip hop/rap artists in the country. Period. Show time is 8 PM and tickets are only $15 + HST.
Wolf Castle is a Mi’kmaq rapper, producer, and singer who came on the scene with a contagious energy and versatile rap flow reminiscent of old school hip-hop combined with a modern pop oriented flavor. Growing up on the reservation in a family of artists, movie directors, and musicians, it was no surprise when, at age 11, he taught himself how to play piano and started writing and recording. At 17, he released his first project, and he hasn’t stopped. Striving to always deliver a fresh perspective, his music carries a powerful energy and covers everything from love and empowerment, to having a good time and going against the odds. His lyrics have been described as catchy and confessional, often connected to his indigenous roots and experience being raised on an indigenous reserve in Pabeau, First Nation NB. Wolf Castle describes himself as a knucklehead with an internet connection.
Based out of Halifax, LXVNDR is a unique rap + hip hop artist with a passion for the taboo, dark and mystical. Described by the Coast Halifax as a “Pastel Punch” her music is great for intellectuals who love clever word play+thought provoking lyrics. Her music has been spun on the radio shows of some of Hip Hop’s greatest names such as: Chuck D, Maestro Fresh Wes and DJ Premier. Representing Black Buffalo Records, with multiple projects in the works by some of Canada’s most talented producers – you won’t want to miss her performance!
