While many of today’s more well-established artists from Canada are aligned of the Drake, Roy Woods and the Tory Lanez variety, every once in awhile we come across an artist who occupies the lanes more akin to your Kardinal Offishalls, Madchilds and Saukrates.
Def3—a native of Regina, Saskatchewan—has recently received a co-sign from the legendary Masta Ace, who revealed to Mass Appeal: “Def3 is a great combination of charisma and talent. I brought him out to Europe earlier this year to open up for one of my tours and he held his own in front of crowds who were unaware of his music. He made a lotta fans over there and I know many of those who discovered him from that tour are gonna run out and support this new album. The future is bright for this guy!”
After releasing the single “Sing” featuring Masta Ace, ProbCause with cuts from Skratch Bastid, the Western Canadian rapper releases Small World, a follow up to 2014’s Wildlif3.
The 11-track project, produced entirely by Late Night Radio also features appearances from Moka Only, Del the Funky Homosapien, Clark Smith and more.
