What is your take on the Canadian Music Industry?
I feel as though Canadian music is still emerging onto the global scale. Now more than ever I feel as though Canada is about to make its mark in the music industry.
What is your background, where were you born?
I’m half Guyanese and half Trinidadian and Toronto is my birthplace.
What does “making it” mean to you? What determines ‘making it’ to you?
“Making it” for me is reaching that point where I want to be recognized and for what I do. I have a love for making music and I would love for people around the world to enjoy my musical ideas and creations.
Where did you grow up? Where did you go to school?
I grew up in Scarborough and spent majority of my childhood growing up in Malvern. I finished high school and was accepted into college for Biotechnology which I later dropped out of because it just wasn’t for me.
Out of all the rappers out there, who is your favorite?
What can be done to put more Canadian rappers onto the world stage?
Being an artist with many talents, I know there are many more talented Canadians that keep a lot of good music hidden away that never reach peoples ears. What we must do is help each other, not one person alone can make it. Behind every success story is a hard working team behind the curtains working the magic.
What is the importance of a good beats VS good lyrics?
When you have a mix of good beats and bad lyrics throughout an album, there isn’t enough importance on the songs leading to fans getting bored of the album really fast. Good lyricism and structure can make any beat sound good but what I’m aiming for is that mix of good beats and good lyrics throughout an album that makes fans want to listen to it over and over again.
Tell us something about yourself?
I scored an overall average of 95% in the Arts program in high school. Sciences were around 74%.
If you could compare yourself to an already established artist, who would that be and why?
I would again say Kanye West only because we can relate in so many ways. Not only does he compose and produce beats, he also has very bold voice which I look up to. Kanye sings as well, not often, but does a good job with the melodies. One last relation that Kanye and I have in common is the loss of our mothers. It’s a reminder for me every day to never be afraid of achieving anything I want.
What will your listeners get out of your music?
I hope listeners will be encouraged to go out and live their lives without fear. I had a rough childhood, growing up without family and a mother and I hope some of my strength and passion will show in the music I make.
What were you thinking about when your songs are developed?
I’m thinking about finding the right pace to go along with the rhythm when I’m song writing as well as the message I’m saying in the song. When I’m making a beat, I try to find the right overall pitch that would suit my voice. I look at almost the entire body of work when my songs are developed.
Who is your hero?
I would have to say God. For keeping me alive and keeping me strong and blessing me with these musical talents that I have.
What made you want to get into the business?
My love to push through anything made me want to pursue the business.
What is the most difficult thing you’ve had to endure in life?
Would probably have to say getting over the fact that my mother wasn’t ever coming back as a little kid was the most difficult thing I had to endure in life.
How does it feel to be finally getting your break?
It’s been a blessing in so many ways I’m surrounded by people who believe in me.
What do you hope to do with your music?
I’m just happy, being able to make music and being able to do what I love to do. Hopefully we’ll catch some headlines in the near future. Maybe reach a few people with my lyrics. Uplifting my fans and making their day easier is important to me.
