Fort Good Hope rapper Dylan Jones aka Crook the Kid is performing this Saturday at the Northern Arts and Cultural Centre (NACC).

The doors open at 7:00 p.m. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are by donation ($15 suggested).

He is fresh off a performance at the Ottawa Bluesfest/MEGAPHONO Festival where he opened for Logic and rising rapper Haviah Mighty.

According to a NACC news release, Crook the Kid is “Mixing tales of a hard-knock lifestyle with those of overcoming one’s obstacles, regardless of the cost. Dylan paints a picture of a beautiful yet brutal existence. The lyrics of each song are a glimpse into the places and events that shaped Crook the Kid not only as a stage presence but as the person he is today.”

Half of the proceeds raised from the concert will be donated to Fort Good Hope Rec Society.
