Co-presented with Hip Hop Education Center


With a career spanning over three decades in Toronto Hip Hop, Jeff ‘Spade’ Duke is Toronto’s OG b-boy having mastered the elements of graffiti (as Crazy Roc of the Graffiti Knights), breaking (as a dancer for Michie Mee and Intrikit), and emceeing (as the legendary emcee Spade of Citizen Kane). Known in the early days of the culture as the Hip Hop barber and eventually becoming a music producer and the owner of Treehouse Records, Jeff is a Hip Hop artist, innovator and entrepreneur.

To celebrate his artistic legacy, we begin with a conversation moderated by Michele Geister - creator of MuchMusic’s RapCity - and commentary from special guests, and will close with a special screening of director Alison Duke’s Raisin’ Kane: A Rapumentary which highlights the journey of Citizen Kane to promote their sophomore album Deliverance.
