Toronto-based Hip Hop artist City whose upbringing is brought center stage in his music. Overcoming an environment and neighborhood with a past plagued by socio-political failures of the system, City’s music is bleak and ominous. It encompasses themes of the grind and the struggle of both his family and his peers, and leans into what it truly means to be street conscious in 2020 and beyond. He recently released his visual “100” to a paint a picture.
Sonically, his beats are equally as dark, cinematically provocative with its fair share of moody atmospherics, tough grooves and wittiness. While he is intent on carving out his own sound, his music echoes influences from artists that have inspired him along the way — Fabolous, Vybez Kartel, Drake and 50 Cent’s G-Unit.
City’s foray into music began as early as 15. He’s always been fascinated with music and draws influence from both his upbringing in school home and church. The fire in his belly to create stems from unjust altercations with the police as a kid, and he channels that release through music. Above all, he is driven to achieve his goals.
The single serves as a primer for his full-length album scheduled later this year. Peep the visual and stay connected with City here.
