About: I was introduced to Hip-Hop at age 9. My childhood friend Chaffic played "The Real Slim Shady" on his stereo and it all went downhill from there. It was love at first sound, but it was difficult to get my hands on Hip-Hop at the time because my mother treated it like a drug and did her best to keep it away from me, LOL. She still doesn`t like it, but I'm an adult now, so I can do drugs if I want to. I remember learning about the genre's stigma just as quickly as I learned about the genre itself. Everyone talked about Eminem and 50 Cent like they were two of America`s most wanted. That isn`t why I decided to become a rapper though. I chose this path, and rechoose this path everyday because Hip-Hop understands me. The truth is, most people simply don`t understand Hip-Hop, so we were meant to be friends from the get go. I wrote my first rap at 13 and it was very motivating. People reacted well to me, and I felt like I finally had something going for me. School was a nightmare, academically and socially, so I felt like I finally found my niche. But then at 14, I fell in love with something more powerful and potent: drugs and alcohol. So it took me a few years to get that out of my system before getting back on track. At 18 I started writing songs again, and practiced freestyles with my friend Tyler while we attended Dawson College. Then after three more years of perfecting my craft, I decided to hit the public with my music and attend Montreal`s open mics. Another three years have gone by, and where am I now? Well... you're reading about me, three years ago NOBODY knew me, so I must be somewhere meaningful.

Offering: A profound understand of Montréal culture and Québec history. A broken down explanation of basic French language. An understanding of what it's like to be born and bred in a nation that does not accept you for who you are, simply because of a difference in cultural background and language (the anglo franco conflict). In short, I show the good, the bad, and the ugly. Also, all the beautiful women.
