Are there any safe hip-hop clubs in Toronto?

Seriously... a friend of mine wants to do his B-day at some hip-hop club, but all the different clubs he's mentioned, have had some sort of stupid shit happen at them.

The monthly Never Forgive Action parties at Gypsy Co-Op/Supermarket are fairly safe. I believe that tuesdays at Andy Poolhall (called 'Footwork') with DJ Fase are still running too.

Yeah, but there aren't as many black people, so it FEELS safer.

ha!!!

alto basso is dope on mondays, i just wish it was a thursday or friday night.

for how big hip hop is, theres not many good easy spots to go on the weekend for actual hip hop. its usually top 40 and r&b/reggae/kanye type mixed shit where you cant wear runners.

They used to have it at Supermarket but the last few I've been to have been at Gypsy. I don't know if there are plans to move it back and forth or whatever.

Anyhow, it's usually a good time.

The last NFA I went to (around October for my b-day) featured PRINCE MF'ing PAUL!

He was kind of eh though. He's a better producer than a DJ.

These two DJ's, Cell Division, used to put on a great hip hop night at Down One Lounge on Saturday nights a while ago. I think they've moved elsewhere but always played incredible hip-hop.

I think Down One still has a hip-hop night on Saturdays though.

It all depends on what type of hip-hop your friend is into. If he wants to hear cornball, top 40 shit then go to Joker or one of those places. If he wants to hear GOOD music from the early/mid 90's up to today's rarer shit, then look for a place like what they said above...Alto Basso or Down One.

what we really need here is to collect a list of the stabby clubs in T-dot and the non-stabby clubs. As well, a third list of shooty clubs could be useful.
