Un-1 aka Marc Stokes, a Canadian Freestyle rapper from Vancouver BC, recently received this voicemail: http://www.un1music.com/album/Voicemail.mp3
Granville Street is the loudest street in our city, it is Named the Entertainment District, and is the perfect venue for outdoor music in Vancouver. English bay during the day time, with quieter volumes is also a wonderful outdoor venue for music and street entertainment that is enjoyed by many.
