Tell us about yourself.

I’m a man of few words. I prefer to say less but always do more. I’m ambitious and I’m confident that I can achieve anything that I put my mind to.

.

.

.

Tell us about yourself as an artist.

I’m an up and coming artist from everywhere and nowhere, but Toronto is who I attribute my sound and influences to.

.

.

.

Tell us about the genre of your music.

I tend to focus on Hip-Hop and rap, but I also like to challenge myself. If I’m feeling an R&B track I’ll get on it. I’m all for experimenting and doing anything outside of the box.

.

.

.

Tell us about the story behind your song.

I was visiting one of my uncles in Brussels who produces beats. He played this one afro beat that I fell in love with as soon as I heard it. There wasn’t much thought to it. I just started writing and it all flowed. I came back to the States and recorded it.

.

.

.

Tell us about the challenges you are facing as a musician.

The fake people and the snakes. It seems as though my biggest supporters like me less and less the more I keep progressing. I know it’s a part of the game but I’d be a liar to say that it doesn’t bother me every now and then. But oh well, I’m going to make moves with or without them.

.

.

.

Tell us about the recording and production of the song.

The recording and production was done at Elm St Studios in Watertown.

.

.

Tell us the names of blogs, radio or TV stations that have supported you so far.

I’ve been featured on Coast to Coast. I’ve been featured on This is 50. And my song “Henny” was in heavy rotation at Hits 93 Toronto.

.

.

.

Tell us more about your music career, experience and future goals.

Right now I’m just in the studio and dropping tracks on SoundCloud as well as linking up with blogs and other promotional outlets to get my name out there. As far as the future goes, I have a lot of plans. You will see. 🙂

.

.

.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

I’m inspired even when I’m not feeling inspired. It’s all a state of mind. And I think that’s what makes the difference between someone that does music just to do it and someone that actually takes it seriously. It’s a lifestyle nowadays. At this point the words are just flowing.

.

.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

Politics.

.

.

.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

I would say to stay consistent and to not let the haters get you down. They only try to bring you down because they are unhappy with how their lives are going. I would also tell them to remember those that were there for them before and to trust the process, not to rush the process. Most importantly, anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

I have opened up for some notable acts in the industry. I’ve had a couple gigs overseas. I had a label showcase with Warner Bros. My track “Ears 2 Da Streets” has reached thirty-thousand plays on SoundCloud with little to no promotion. And my other tracks are at ten-thousand each. And the numbers keep going up.

.

.

.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

Like I’ve said before, it all flows. It just comes naturally. I hear a beat in the studio and spend about half an hour writing lyrics and then record. I do whatever feels right.

.

.

.

Name the artists you are willing to collaborate with.

I’d be willing to collaborate with the Drake, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Future, J. Cole in addition to a couple of newer artists like Lil Uzi Vert, Nav, and Cousin Stizz.

.

.

.

State the links to your social networks.

My soundcloud is——-> dathiiird (with three i’s).

.

.

.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

My happiest day is the first time I took the stage and performed. My saddest day is the day that my closest homie passed away.

.

.

.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

I would put my brother and sister thru school. I’d buy a crib for my parents. I would invest in some real estate. I would give back to the community. And I would use the rest to put back into my music career.

.

.

.

Tell us about your song.

It is warning shot to anyone that wants to press us but on a dancehall beat. Don’t sleep.

.

.

.

Tell us about you as a person outside the musical world.

I’m low-key; I don’t do too much talking.
