We hope that the support that we got from all of you in 2009 will only increase as we move forward into 2010.

Our next episode of What's Poppin' will be featuring freestyle legend, Shannon. Shannon stopped by in Toronto for a performance at Frequency nightclub, and showed some of the new cats how they used to get down in the 1980's.

As you may or may not remember, Shannon burst onto the freestyle music scene in the mid-1980's with the smash hit, "Let the music play" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQ5jTAISutM&feature=related) and that track hasn't stopped rocking since. She went on to do collaborations with some of the industries top producers at the time, and made it her personal goal to stay at the top of the charts. During the 80's many considered her to be one of the originators of freestyle-pop music and brought the type of music into the mainstream circle along with the likes of Stevie B. and company.

Make sure you check out our latest episode for a look at what Shannon is up to now, who she wants to work with in the future, and her comments on how the game has changed since she used to sit at the top of the charts.
