I heard people saying the popular adage ‘anything you can do, I can do better’ a LOT more before social media came around.
It was more the negative connotations attached to making rap music. It’s hard not to get that ‘oh him, too?’ reaction from everyone, including your peers. I didn’t want to seem like someone who just decided to hop on a trend.
Well, I actually lived in Ottawa before moving to Toronto. But, the transition was pretty wild, it’s like moving to an entirely different world- going from a majority to a minority.
My favorite artist of all time is Kanye. Despite his antics, I just can’t deny his music, no matter how objectively I look at it. But, my playlist right now got some Charlotte Day Wilson, Goldlink, Noname, Clairmont The Second, and Gracy Hopkins, to name a few.
Threat was my most recent track. Though there are some gems in my first project, it was my first ever project and I feel like i’ve gotten a lot better since then. I was also in a different space at the time and it shows.
I know they’re really selective about who they have on the show, but they’re also very open. If you contact them and they mess with your music, then they will have you on, but the reason they are so successful is that they genuinely only mess with good music and don’t accept any form of payment for promo and things like that. Their studio is amazing.
It was a bit of both. Just really love their page, to be honest.
I think it’s difficult now for the same reasons it was difficult back in the day. Everybody thinks they can make music so everybody makes music and consumers get less and less interested in hearing ‘just another rapper’.
That’s a hard one because I’ve had a few, but its probably when I performed in my hometown and barely anybody showed up.
It was a poem by Daniel Nwosu, he goes by Dax now. It was a perfect way to lead into the next song, and it was just really powerful.
Yes, actually! That’s why I’m such a strong advocate for shooting your shot. You’ll never know until you try.
I think my favorites haven’t been released yet.

Call me Q. I read books way more than I talk to people- I'm working on it. I love cartoons and practicing my twerk face (with the tongue out!) in the bathroom mirror. I write a lot about humans and our connection to Other, but I also stuff my face with Kit Kats and Lays and NEVER go to the gym, so who says I'm an expert on anything? And, hey, I treat my Instagram like Snapchat, but you can still follow me there @waitfortheq.
