Words by Kardinal Offishall, as told to Jesse Serwerโ€”


While Jamaica is getting set for Monday’s 50th anniversary festivities with all sorts of events and celebrations, the biggest blockbuster fete this weekend is actually going down way up north in Toronto: Caribana, said to be North America’s largest street festival.

As Kardinal says, “Youโ€™re a real trooper if you get in on Thursday and make it all the way ’til Tuesday…There’s plenty of stuff to but you can’t go wrong with these joints…” Wheeeeelll!
