Before the 6ix: Classic 1999 Toronto Hip-Hop Albums

When Choclair's Ice Cold was released in 1999, it represented a milestone in Toronto hip-hop. But it was just one of many significant releases that year which is arguably one of the finest in the history of the city's hip-hop scene.

The following albums will be discussed:

- Choclair - Ice Cold
- Saukrates - The Underground Tapes
- Mathematik - Ecology
- Da Grassroots - Passage Through Time

Featuring panelists Choclair, Saukrates, Mathematik, Murr of Da Grassroots and Mansa Trotman.
