Recorded in 1989, and one of the bigger hits from his debut album Symphony in Effect, "Drop the Needle" is a killer oldskool hip hop classic by Toronto's own Maestro Fresh Wes.

What's he up to these days? He's been acting and has taken on roles in a number projects for film and television. Last year at the Reel World Film Festival Maestro received a Trailblazer Award. He also has his own line of clothing and skateboard decks.
