Good news for fans of hip-hop in Toronto: Wu-Tang Clan are playing a free concert at Rebel on Sunday, September 30, doors 8 pm. 

Head over to neverjaded.ca, enter your birthday and fill out an RSVP, and you’ll get an email that says “HOLD TIGHT! We’ll get back to you closer to the date if you’ve been added to the list.” Seems pretty straightforward, but also weirdly low-key for a high-profile and legendary hip-hop group celebrating its 25th anniversary. And what exactly is Never Jaded?

A news release touts it as a “collective” and a “social movement,” as well as a series of “concerts for the nation’s music lovers, interactive art exhibitions, theatre take-overs, and memorable culinary experiences” and includes listings for events in Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Ottawa and Calgary featuring artists like dvsn, Fetty Wap, Murda Beatz, Our Lady Peace and dining events with celebrity chef Matty Matheson. 

On August 27, Never Jaded presented Wu-Tang’s RZA at Royal Cinema playing a live score to the 1978 film The 36th Chamber of Shaolin.

Never Jaded is under the umbrella of Hexo, a – can it be so simple? – cannabis company. That explains the vagueness, but it’s there if you look in the fine print. Cannabis sponsorships are in a legal grey area right now, but that hasn’t stopped brands from finding their way in the music market.

For anyone who’s ever wanted to hear a full(ish)-lineup version of classics like Bring Da Ruckus, it’s nothing but gain.
