Premiere: Toronto up-and-comer Grainz North previews EP debut with “Entrepreneur” single
Toronto, ON – This one is going to get people talking. We are absolutely thrilled to introduce you to a hot new artist and premiere his 416 Smallz-produced single, “Entrepreneur.”
21-year-old Grainz North is said to be affiliated with P. Reign’s Reps Up movement, who happen to hail from the same Galloway neighbourhood in East Scarborough. The track is basically a modern approach to “Mo Money, Mo Problems,” telling the tale of someone who finds out that more success usually comes with more haters… and how he deals with it. Grainz North is expected to release his debut EP, The Way Out, this summer.
We spoke with Grainz briefly about the new release:
“First and foremost, much love to HipHopCanada and all the other websites that have supported my new single ‘Entrepreneur’ produced by my dawg, 416 Smallz. This song is very personal to me because it ultimately represents my life ambitions because I am someone who wants to be able to fulfill multiple goals not just music wise but business wise as well. Coming up in the streets of Northside, Galloway was rough and I just want to inspire the youth and my dawgs into understanding with hard smart work and god anything is possible. Expect for me to drop my debut mixtape The Way Out this summer and to keep the heat coming, I’m not trying to ride anyone else wave I just want to put on for my city and create opportunities through my label, The Way Out Entertainment. Dun kno, HipHopCanada!”
