In Search of Divine Styler at The Drake

Divine Styler, part of Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate, made big waves when he played Toronto back in the day. Now he's got Ryan Somers, aka Fritz tha Cat, to thank for a zine named after him and a book, In Search of ... Divine Styler, to be launched at The Drake Underground tomorrow night. Vice magazine - at one time as Canadian and underground as they come - said of Somers $40 start-up: "As far as underground mags in Canada goes, this is the shit".

Somers tells us the book is loaded with all the zines best bits: "phone sex interviews with horny rappers and ouija board interviews with dead rappers, and candy rappers and..." well, it's definitely about rappers. Mark McKay breaks down the details of the story of the man behind Divine Styler in this video. Tomorrow's romp at The Drake will feature the talent of rapper Fritz tha Cat, Buck 65, Druncnes Monster, Mindbender and Mackenzie.
