Salute to you on the release of your new video "Can I Live"; it's an incredible visual. Of all your songs, why did you decide to create a video for "Can I Live"?
Thank you that means a lot. I decided to create a video for this song because of how relevant the song was at the time; I was compelled to make it.
Regarding the song itself, did you find writing and recording it to be an outlet and release of pent up stress?
Yes, actually I needed to get out some energy with this song. Then it only made sense to continue the release with visuals.
What can you tell us about your upcoming album, which will be released next winter? Will "Can I Live" be featured on it?
What I can tell you is that the album paints a vivid image and no, “Can I Live” will not be on it. It's just a single.
If you could pick any artist to be featured as a guest on "Can I Live", who would you select? Why?
I'd probably feature Scarlxrd on this song because of the energy everyone knows he would apply on the song and especially the video.
If there was one thing you could change about the urban music scene in Toronto, what would it be?
If I could change one thing, it would be the negativity mainly associated with the music scene in Toronto.
