Calgary, AB – Every month we link up with the folks over at 10 at 10 Hip-Hop Showcase to spotlight one of our favourite performers from the showcase. This month, we caught up with Halifax’s own 27-year-old T-Bear. T-Bear recently moved to Calgary on an impulse-decision, but he’s already settling into the YYC hip-hop community and gearing up to launch a sweet little mixtape. T-Bear hit the stage at Commonwealth Bar & Stage on Jan. 8, and won-over the crowd with his hard bangers, and gimmicky stage-presence.
But despite T-Bear’s signature turn-up tracks, he admittedly prefers writing more serious heartfelt tracks. And his forthcoming Something For The People project is loaded with some heavy-duty lyricism. So we sat down with T-Bear and chopped it up about his Andre 3000 stage presence, the 10 at 10 community, emotions and feelers, and more. Check it all out after the jump.
“It feels like everyone is so together at 10 at 10. It feels like everyone is there for each other.” – T-Bear
