Fresh off the recent success of the NWA biopic, ‘Straight Outta Compton’, DJ Yella embarked on a short Canadian tour including sold out cities like Toronto, Montreal, and Fredricton. The first stop on the tour, most appropriately, was the capital city– Ottawa. After landing in Ottawa early in the morning, Yella was amped to see his Canadian fans. The crowd was intimate for Ritual Nightclub, but valuable nonetheless. Alongside local heavyweights Dj So Nice, Jon Deck and Dj Ray Ray, Yella performed a late set laden with NWA tracks. Being such an important story, it’s no surprise that fans were riding the wave of excitement surrounding the ‘Straight Outta Compton’ movie and getting to see one of the faces of where NWA all started in person is nothing short of legendary.
