With the 2016 NBA All-Star Game going down this Sunday at Toronto's Air Canada Centre, and the league's best players descending on the city all weekend, there are plenty of big ticket concerts featuring DJs (AraabMuzik, Metro Boomin, Ryan Hemsworth), rappers (every single working MC), rappers pretending to be DJs (DJ Snoopadelic), and retired basketball stars pretending to be DJs (looking your way Shaquille O'Neal).
Who better to get people excited for the festivities than two guys whose full-time job involves pumping up stadium crowds? 4Korners, a.k.a. Kirk St. Cyr, has been the Toronto Raptors' official team DJ for the past eleven years. Today we're premiering his exclusive All-Star mix, "Live From The 6," for which he teamed up with Cleveland Cavaliers' official DJ Steph Floss.
"Our basketball and baseball teams are killing it, our musical artists are owning the charts and the clubs, what better time to put together a mix inspired by our city's coming of age?" 4KORNERS tells THUMP.
For his half, he decided to pick songs from his favourite Toronto artists and producers (heavy on rap newcomers like Jazz Cartier, Tory Lanz, and Roy Wood$), while Foss' all-American half features Fetty Wap, "Formation," and Future.
