Oh Canada! We threw our first ever international DAY OFF right in the heart of Toronto, bringing the turn up to Muzik Pool Bar with Danny Brown, A-Trak (accompanied by hometown OVO hero P. Reign), Lunice, Le1f, Tommy Kruise, Thugli, Nick Catchdubs, High Klassified and Sleepy Tom. If you were there, you got to share something special (big shout out to the kid who smuggled in Cool Ranch Doritos to give to Danny onstage during “Monopoly”) and if you weren’t, you can still catch up with this recap vid! Peep fgdayoff.com for details on a DAY OFF near you, and for more TO action, check out photo galleries and recaps from The Bass Collective, Aesthetic Magazine & BLARE, some of our favorites after the jump.
