Blue Collar Worker Mixtape Release Party, Friday September 10, 2010 at Augusta House

Toronto, ON -- Following the successful viral release of his Blue Collar Worker Mixtape, MC FÜBB is proud to present the Blue Collar Worker Mixtape Release Party. The event, which takes place at Augusta House, 152 Augusta Avenue in Toronto will feature performances by MC FÜBB and special guests. Admission to the event will include a physical copy of the Blue Collar Worker Mixtape.

Blue Collar Worker features 18 powerful tracks including “Six Million”, a song that was written to honour survivors of the Holocaust, something very personal to MC FÜBB as three of his Grandparents are themselves Holocaust survivors. “The topic of the Holocaust is something that was always present in my house growing up, but it wasn’t something that was really talked about. Writing “Six Million” was my way of expressing my thoughts and emotions”, said MC FÜBB

The Blue Collar Worker Mixtape Release Party takes place on Friday September 10, 2010 at Augusta House, 152 Augusta Avenue, Toronto. Live performances by MC FÜBB and special guests; music provided by DJ Bowza. Admission: $5 (Includes copy of Blue Collar Worker)

Blue Collar Worker
"The Blue Collar Worker isn’t about socioeconomic class struggles. It’s a mind-state of the type of grind that nobody sees and yet everybody knows about. It’s not just about rockin’ the mic on stage or spittin’ in the booth; it’s also about trekking around the city with a full backpack and a mission to accomplish. It’s about dragging your ass out of bed when you’d rather sleep-in and taking steps even though your feet hurt. It’s about working that job that you’d rather not work so you can pay for studio time and get your tracks mixed. It’s embodying the type of courage that nobody rewards you for and doing the damn thang instead of complaining about what needs to be done.

The Blue Collar isn’t a status symbol. It’s a representation of everything it takes to achieve one’s goals and materialize one’s dreams. It symbolizes a level of earnestness and integrity that the vast majority of people lack in their lives. It’s a commitment to honouring one’s word and not settling for excuses. It’s the acknowledgment that obstacles are merely limitations that have not yet been overcome. This is what I mean when I say, I’m on a different kind of grind when I pop the Blue Collar…

This mixtape is dedicated to all the people in the world out there putting in work to pursue their dreams - to all the Blue Collar Workers." - MC FÜBB
