You’ve never heard a rapper—or seen a live performer—anything like The Mighty Rhino. Since bursting onto the scene in 2007 as the breakout star of the “Toronto institution” known as Hip Hop Karaoke, he’s been wrecking mics and destroying stages with his live-wire energy and irrepressible zest for life. His explosive debut album, ‘He Whom The Beat Sets Free’, arrived to stellar reviews in 2011, and since then it’s become clear that the sky is the limit.
Rhino’s dynamism truly has to be seen to be believed. He’s been called “electric” by Maclean’s magazine, “a legend in the making” by Torontoist, and “one of the best things to happen to hip-hop” by Billy Danze of the legendary M.O.P
. His razor-sharp rhymes and blistering “Brother Ali meets Busta Rhymes” delivery have made fans out of a host of hip-hop royalty, including Brother Ali himself as well as Juno Award winner and newly minted CBC Radio "Q" host Shad, old-school East Coast kings Jeru The Damaja and Masta Ace, Canadian rap icon Maestro Fresh Wes, West Coast underground legend Chali 2na of Jurassic 5, rising Southern superstar Rittz (who appears in a show-stopping guest spot on the high-octane banger "Whaddup Witcha"), and more. His signature song, the captivating "Company Policy", earned him nominations for the Toronto Independent Music Awards and the International Songwriting Competition in 2012. And through it all, his infectious optimism and unstoppable stage presence have won him the hearts of legions of fans, one blown mind at a time. With the impending Summer 2015 release of his thrilling sophomore set, Good Evening My Name Is The Mighty Rhino, his legacy of devastating greatness is certain to only continue. Rhino Salute!
