In the current climate…yes, yes Ottawa can climb up. With a vibrant Ottawa hip hop scene being displayed in major media platforms like the Ottawa Citizen…we have to acknowledge…Ottawa can rise up. Bytown Blog is a space for Ottawa based musicians, artists, restaurants, creatives and other influential black folks to rise up. Beyond the “legacy” media perspective, beyond “their” point of view and beyond anything they want us to be behind. Yes, Ottawa can rise up, if we do it TOGETHER!
