GHOSTFACE KILLAH:

Ghostface Killah comes from the multi-platinum artist conglomerate that is the Wu-Tang Clan. Since the Wu-Tang's inception and collective debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) Ghostface Killah has developed a massive following through a stellar solo career. Ghostface is critically acclaimed for his loud, fast-paced flow, and his emotional stream-of-consciousness narratives containing cryptic slang and non-sequiturs. In 2006, MTV included him on their honourable mention list of The Greatest MCs of All Time, while the editors of About.com placed him on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time (1987–2007), praising him as "one of the most imaginative storytellers of our time."Ghostface's storytelling abilities have widely been praised, with Q magazine calling him "rap's finest storyteller." 

Ghost is deep into his solo career releasing 12 albums since his debut with Wu-Tang. He has also dropped stellar verses on all the Wu-Tang Clan group albums, other Wu-Tang Members solo albums and has contributed songs to over 30 movie soundtracks. Ghostface has toured the world and is set to finally make his first appearance in Western Canada. Victoria look out, straight from the slums of Shaolin, it's The Ghostface Killah.

Ghostface Killah, whose stage name was taken from one of the characters in the 1979 kung fu film Mystery of Chessboxing, debuted his solo-career with 'Ironman' in 1996, which was well received by music critics. He has continued his success over the following years with critically acclaimed albums such as 'Supreme Clientele' ('00), 'Bulletproof Wallets' ('01), 'Shaolin's Finest' ('03), 'Pretty Toney Album' ('04), 'Fishscale' & 'More Fish' ('06), 'Hidden Darts' & 'Big Doe Rehab' ('07), 'Ghostdeini The Great' & 'Wallabee Champ' ('08), 'Ghostdini: Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City' ('09), 'Apollo Kids' ('10) and in 2011 we await 'Supreme Clientele Part II'. Ghostface's songs have been featured on Movie Soundtracks including Iron Man. Ghost has also dropped verses on subsequent Wu-Tang members' solo projects, including Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Return To The 36 Chambers", Genius/GZA's "Liquid Swords", Chef Raekwon's "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx" & "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… Pt. II" and many more. 

Ghostface has even appeared in a few movies including Black and White (99), Hunter Dawson (02), Scary Movie 3 (03) as gang member, Raekwon and RZA were alongside him, Fade to Black, (04), Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (07), Iron Man (08) as a Dubaian sheik; cameo. (Though it was cut in post-production, his cameo can be found in the DVD's deleted scenes section) and When in Rome (10) as Guggenheim DJ!

Ghostface has most definitely become one of hip-hop's most beloved hard-core artists, mostly for his talents, but also because of his outlook and his natural delivery. 

About having been born in the Stapleton projects and raised in Shaolin (Staten Island, NY): "Chillin' on the block, besides being a certified thug nigga, I was only one of hundreds of crazy, nasty kids that got his chance through the struggle." 

About his personable and natural style: "My technique developed gradually by listening to the gods: Allah Just (GZA), Divine Prince Master Rakeem (RZA), Unique A-Son (Ol' Dirty Bastad), and the rest of my brothers later on down the line as the years came." 

About the first single "Camay" from his solo debut: "It's about bagging older women. The beat is treacherous, right, and exact. Raekwon & Cappa contribute with a flyass loop." 

About his debut solo album Ironman: "I wanna t each the babies mathematics (knowledge of self). My album skits will be like that...rhyming, not talking about all that other shit because that's not where it's at for the Clan for now. Brothers lived through it, though... If we said it, we see it. Might come around once in a while, but the whole science is to be focused and be on point." 

About making his mark: "If you want to get technical about it, I look at hip-hop from all aspects. I want people to say about me: 'How the fuck he flipped that shit?' or 'Damn! The god knows how to hold his weight.'" mbers) (Loud/RCA), Ghostface Killah has developed a massive following through his participation in subsequent Wu-Tang members' solo projects, including Ol' Dirty Bastard's Return To The 36 Chambers (Elektra), Genius/GZA's Liquid Swords (Geffen) and most prominently on Chef Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx (Loud/RCA). 

In addition, Ghostface has participated on numerous tracks with artists such as Jodeci for the "Freakin' You" remix and K-Def & Larry-O for the remix of "Real Live." Ghostface has also made several appearances during the last year providing his talents for various soundtracks including "Who's The Champion" from The Great White Hype, "Motherless Child" from Sunset Park, and "Winter Warz" from Don't Be A Menace.

PETER JACKSON: 

As Canadians continue to push the idea that “Hip Hop isn’t dead...It lives in the North” most people expect to discover talent in some of the big cities like Toronto, Vancouver and even the east coast town of St. John’s. But when talking about pounding beats and lyrical rhymes, very few would think of Oshawa, Ontario. It may seem an unlikely place to find Canada’s next hip-hop star, but when you look at the cultural make-up of the city of Oshawa itself, it bears a striking resemblance to an American city that has birthed a handful of top emcees. Detroit, Michigan. Both Oshawa & Detroit are the headquarters for General Motors in their respective countries, both have high crime rates and both have spawned some pretty decent white boys that can rhyme. Detroit, Michigan has Eminem and Oshawa, Ontario has Peter Jackson.

Twenty-four year old rapper, Peter Jackson, now based in the Durham region, was born and raised in Ajax, Ontario, a small suburb just outside of Toronto. Jackson initially became attracted to the rap industry in his teens. What started as a childhood hobby of freestyling in friends’ basements soon became an obsession. While Jackson would have to struggle to gain respect for his talent in a town that was better known for its punk bands, such as Sum41 he soon began to make a name for himself. This once “less than ambitious” high school student was now dedicating his time to studying the dictionary in order to expand his vocabulary. It wasn’t long before this basement hobby developed into a full-fledged passion and career.

Peter Jackson always believed that Hip Hop was his life and was determined to convince other to believe in his dream as much as he did. Jackson knew that if he was to survive in this industry he was going to have to take to the pavement himself to make it happen. Today he is not just an artist who has recorded hundreds of songs, or toured as the supporting artist for legendary rappers, he also boasts a promotions company and a clothing line. Peter Jackson and his team 90Nickel are not just a group of rapper they are a local Hip-Hop franchise.

To date Jackson has been a supporting act for artists such as, Wu Tang, Youngblooz, Obie Trice, Llyod Banks, Rupee, Ray J, Drake, Rich Boy, Kardinal Offishall, Joe Budden, Enur, Dip Set, Beenie Man, KRS One, Nas, and The Clipse. He has also hosted parties with names like, Mad Linx, Tiffany, Jayde Nicole, Cabbie on the Street, Matte Babel and Leah Miller of Much Music, Scott Boogie and Devo Brown Flow 93.5, Danny Fernandes, Mr. Vegas, and Shemar Moore. He has also collaborated on tracks with artists ranging from local talent Nikki Awesome, to D12 and most recently Treach of Naughty by Nature. In November of 2008, Peter Jackson was asked to be a part of the cross-Canada “Never say Never” Tour opening for D12, Joe Budden, Royce da 5’9 and Classified. After receiving great reviews Jackson was quickly sent back across the country in March of 2009 to open for Hip Hop superstars Naughty by Nature. And in the summer of 2009, Jackson is set to once again tour Canada with G-Unit’s Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo and DJ Whoo Kidd.

Peter Jackson has appeared on over 50 mixed tapes in North America working with names such as, DJ Rated R, Potent Product, DJ Diggz, DJ Dollah $, and more. He released his own mixed tape titled, Business as Usual hosted by DJ G-Spot of Shadyville DJ fame in 2007. Jackson quickly followed it up with two more compilations, Fly Society, featuring fellow 90Nickle member, and Hustler’s Tears, both hosted by DJ Bedz, the Denver Nuggets official DJ, and Denver, Colorado’s Shadyville DJ. In 2008, Jackson began working with executive producer Sheldon Moore, who has years of experience working with artists such as Citizen Kaine, K-OS, Big Pun, Jahiem. Together they produced and released Peter Jackson’s first EP titled, The Introduction, with features from Jmore, Emmerson Just Brooks, Toya Lexus and Royce da 5’9. The first single from the EP, Come on Over, featuring Jmore is currently receiving radio rotation across Canada after being picked up by Toronto’s Flow 93.5 FM. Jackson is in studio recording his first full length album which is expected to be released in November of 2009.

This young artist is tenacious and determined. His lyrics are insightful and he is willing to challenge the boundaries of the Rap and Hip Hop industry we know today. At times his rhymes are hard and unapologetic, but he can also captivate a club with a beat and an unforgettable hook. But perhaps the most lasting impression Jackson leaves is his humility. While he has become a local celebrity he is never shy to remind fans and critics alike, where he came from and how he got to where he is today. In Jackson’s own words, “It’s a team effort. I couldn’t have done any of this without my family, my boys or the support from my hometown.”
