London Hip-Hop History Shines on WIB Rap Radio

Forest City Hip-Hop (London)

London, Ontario, Canada is known as the Forest City and it has a rich history of hip-hop. Alex Kuchma is writing a book on Canadian hip-hop history and will have an entire chapter dedicated to the scene. He was on CBC radio talking about it this week. I had to feature a clip of that interview in this week’s show. I always celebrate the local talent we have here and am looking forward to the book.
