April 2017 is behind us and Summer 2017 is already just around the corner. Before we move on to May 2017 though, Made in Toronto has teamed up with DJ Laz Vagez to curate the monthly 6IXMIX for April.
If you’ve never heard of Laz Vagez you probably haven’t been following Toronto’s rap scene for too long. Vagez is a sound engineer and has worked for various studios in the city and with even more rappers from the city. Currently the multi-talented DJ has been working for Majur Musik studios and frequently continues to collaborate with many Toronto rappers.
The Toronto trap scene lives on Youtube and many rappers from our city have been getting 100k spins recently, but this wasn’t so easy back then. Prior to the Toronto wave there weren’t many rappers hitting 100k+. Laz Vagez hosted 2 mixtapes of one of the only rappers from before the eyes were on Toronto who could hit 100k plus spins on Youtube. His name is Roney. A year after releasing 2 very successful mixtapes hosted by Vagez, the Regent Park/Parma Court rapper was arrested and charged.
After Roney’s time in the spotlight Vagez continued to work with many trap artists including Scarborough’s very own Booggz, up and comer Chubz, Adrian Duncan, Triple M and many more.
With so much experience under his belt and having worked with so many of our city’s underground rappers we’re proud to have Laz Vagez on the 6IXMIX this month.
