Frek Sho – “Patience”

by

Edmonton, (2002)
This was a dope show and the crowd was asking for this song all night. A slightly different version of Frek Sho’s 1996 classic single “Patience” (Ismaila flipped his lyrics, Kutdown is on the cuts and there’s no Gumball or Sunil). The original music video for this track (directed by Micill Shazzam Write), also included below, used to receive play on muchmusic’s Rap City back in the day; one of the first prairie rap groups to do it.

Live Canadian Rap is where we feature classic live performance footage. If you used to bring a video camera to rap shows back in the day and have some old footage you’d like to share, please contact us.

    its refreshing to listen to this with some of the rappers those guys on the other board list as being good rappers from alberta. it reminds me that there is actually good rap from the prairies.

    i remember watching this vid get play on rapcity.. still a banger.

    mood ruff was getting play around the same time .. i guess they dont count as prairie.
    my brother is a lot older than me and cant stand underground rap but when this came out we were both catching neck aches.

    anyways.. definatly a big ups for this classic reminder of history.

    still have this ona videotape somewhere when recording rap vids was in effect.

  15. Mood Ruff are prairie rappers, both groups are from Winnipeg. I’m pretty sure “Patience” was on TV about 3 or 4 years before Mood Ruff had a video on there though.
