Jorun / Sean One
Jorun's Way is the last installment in a nearly two decade-long endeavor...to bring Halifax-based Hip-Hop into the limelight. Jorun has been producing quality beats for Halifax rappers since the 1980s, and has worked with some of the most respected Hip-Hop artists in Canada today. He's a local legend - he's even been called the "Father" of the urban scene.
