  North Creed [Conglomerate] North Creed is a unique music conglomerate based in Mississauga, making strides to carve their own lane. Their style is abstract and urban in nature, which has developed into an alternative hip hop sound. The group primarily consists of AR, Comma, Dez, Daillo, Lori Benzo and HAM, but it is understood that the group runs much deeper than that. It is evident that these guys have a strong core following, as they are able to sell out venues for their  shows. Their logo can be seen all over the city from stop signs, bus stops, private and public buildings, as such it is not easy to overlook these guys. @NorthCreed northcreed.com
