With Raptors mania sweeping Toronto and beyond, Canadian hip-hop pioneer Maestro Fresh Wes is seizing the moment by releasing a fresh video for his infectious Toronto Raptors-inspired anthem, Jurassic Park.
Produced by and featuring Rich Kidd, the track and video is a celebration of Maestro's hometown team and their fans who gather outside the stadium for games. Jurassic Park was initially featured on Maestro's 2017 LP Coach Fresh, but with TO fan fervour grabbing international attention, the time is right for fresh exposure.
Maestro Fresh Wes' latest release is Champagne Campaign, an album that marks his 30th anniversary of exploding onto the scene with 1989’s Symphony in Effect, the first Canadian hip-hop album to reach Platinum status. Featured on that album was the classic track Let Your Backbone Slide, the first Canadian hip-hop single to reach Gold status.
An accomplished actor, Maestro (real name Wes Williams) just wrapped up eight seasons playing the role of Vice Principal Paul Dwyer on the CBC hit sitcom, Mr. D.
