With DJ's like Diplo and Ghrislain Poirer giving the music their stamps of approval, the riddim of the West Indies has hit the indie scene pretty hard over the past year. If not hard, then at least it's bubbling, and we can anticipate a boil. Hopefully this'll call some more attention to the underexposed Toronto scene, the roots of which are firmly embedded in the West Indies. T.dot's star performer and most-known-unknown is Kardinal Offishall. His sophomore LP, Fire and Glory, had a Canadian release late last year, and it should hit American stores soon. He's also got that Kill Bloodclott Bill mixtape out too from a little ways back. Also way hot.
