Brampton up-and-comer Toast previews new CHEERS mixtape with “Maple Syrup”


Brampton, ON – For something that is so often associated with Canadian culture, it’s kind of strange that “Maple Syrup” hasn’t been referenced more in Canadian hip-hop; especially with the syrup and sizzerb subject matter being so prevalent in American hip-hop just a few years back.

Up-and-coming B-Town hip-hop artist Toast must have noticed the void, and he’s filled it nicely with his new single. “Maple Syrup” is the gateway single off the forthcoming mixtape release, CHEERS, where Toast takes you through what he likes to call “one of those nights.”
