Check out the hip hop group Iambic as they are making waves in the Toronto music scene. The reason Iambic makes music is to offer self-expression and communicating it to the public.

We all know that music is timeless, not only will it help them share their story but the music they create will allow them to take it back in time. Although they are experienced, they take any kind of feedback from the audience that will help them grow together and take the proper steps to further their musical career. Every experience will make a milestone.

Iambic is the short form for the meter ‘Iambic Pentameter” (the most basic unit of measure in a poem). If you studied poetry you will know that it measures the syllables and the pattern of syllables in a line, from stressed to unstressed or vice versa. Their name is inspired by Shakespeare’s sonnets which are written predominantly in the meter iambic pentameter. It is a rhyme scheme in which each sonnet line consists of ten syllables.
