Do you think that music has the ability to change things in society?
Yeah definitely, because it’s universal. Everybody listens to it. Look at Childish Gambino I mean, he’s amazing – talk about versatility, he is as versatile as it gets and he’s changing things.
How does it feel being surrounded by the new Canadian music pool?
It’s so cool, it feels amazing. When I was growing up in Canada there was no one representing the Toronto rap scene who was breaking through enough: we had so much talent that never got looked at outside of the city. Not even in our own country. For the whole country to be influenced and to be creating, it’s beautiful. Doesn’t matter who you are or where in Canada you are, people want to create: it’s not just Toronto or city-centric, it’s Vancouver, Quebec, it’s spreading all over.
Is there anyone you’re really listening to right now?
Oh yeah, I listen to a lot of Gunna right now. Lil Baby too. Ha those guys are crazy. Me and my gang too, we’ve been making a lot of music recently.
