Canada’s coldest areas can birth some of the hottest talents the world has seen thus far. While everyone knows about Drake and The Weeknd, there are plenty of up-and-comers starting to rise through the ranks from all parts of Canada, and from Brampton, you have FRX$T. The twenty-year-old emcee grew up during the beginning of these prominent artists’ careers and took with him the message that you can be your true self in your lyrics, and people will still support it. Unapologetic with his rhymes, FRX$T has grown from one of the more violent sides of the country and promotes a “peace over beef” message while making sure the listener walks away from his music feeling something, no matter what that might be. After being judged for his Indian heritage as a child, FRX$T is out to prove there is more to this book than the cover!
What Hometown are you from?
I’m from Brampton, the flower city born and raised.
Which Artist are you most influenced by?
I’m a music lover, so all music influences me in a way. But as far as artists that influence my flow today, it would be Tory Lanez /nav / Lil baby. And before them, it was Drake/ Travis Scott/ Asap rocky/ Snoop dog/ Big Sean, and Akon.
What has been your biggest accomplishment as an artist so far?
I would say my biggest accomplishment so far as an artist would be getting airplay on online radio and real radio in Trinidad and Tobago.
Tell us about your most recent release. What inspired it? What message are you conveying through your music?
Sorry not sorry is really a freestyle I did at my home studio. In the song I’m talking about things I’ve seen and done in the past,
like getting jumped, fighting back and getting away. Being underestimated because of my size and overcoming that, the song is more of a small introduction to me.
Tell us about some of the accomplishments you are aiming for in the near future?
I still see way more in the future but I see things one step at a time. Right now I’m aiming for my own shows and collaborating with our cities heavy hitters, and also
being the biggest name out of Brampton and shedding light on my town for my peers. Trying to do the same thing as me.
How long have you been Rapping or making music?
I’ve always rapped, but as far as putting stuff out seriously I would say 1 year.
Do you have any messages you’d like to share with your fans?
My message to my fans is don’t compare your self to others. Just try and be the best version of you, and more music coming soon.
