Vintage Hip-Hop sound coming from Winnipeg Manitoba Canada. This is some good old school sounds to nod your head to.
Canadian MC Abstract Artform brings a fresh and distinctive sound to Hip-Hop. Even though it sounds fresh the vibe you get is an old school head-nod feel. Ain't much I can say in a biography that you can't hear in the music....
Tune in and turn it up to life in Canada.

When you think of Canada, hip-hop may not be the first thing that comes to mind, but that may just change once you hear Abstract Artform's “Prairie Kid.” These guys are trying to keep alive an art form many believe has already peaked and is on its way out of the mainstream. Abstract Artform is the real deal, true emcees that cannot be denied, reminiscent of Jurassic 5, The Roots, and even old school hip-hop like Fab 5 Freddy. The songs are great, with extreme danceability, and the entire album has the potential of beginning a Great Awakening of the hip-hop world. “Prairie Kid” is well-produced, the lyrics and beats crisp and ready for loud and extended play. "Hands Up" is a standout track on this album, with a head-nodding beat and a catchy hook for a chorus. "Here We Are" is another great track that criticizes the disarray of the music industry and how music as an art form is a dying breed. The chorus, "Here we are/We're gonna do something to change the way it is," is a great statement which really captures the present day culture of hip-hop and music in general. Fans of old school hip-hop should definitely pick this one up; keep the art form alive and support up-and-comers like Abstract Artform.-Ross Shotland
