RCMP quashes rap performance

Rap artist asked to keep event at Sidney skatepark low-key

Rap artist Snak the Ripper and his entourage, better known as the Stompdown Killaz graffiti crew, made an appearance at the skatepark in Sidney on Tuesday, June 19.

The brief visit was part of the rap artist’s Stompdown Tour which will see the group travel across Canada over the next month.

The group said they had planned to perform at the skatepark, but were asked by Sidney North Saanich RCMP officers to keep the event to selling tour merchandise and adding street art to the skatepark.

Snak the Ripper and the Stompdown Killaz graffiti crew were recently featured in an Oscar nominated documentary called “Exit Through the Gift Shop” by renowned British street artist Banksy.
