What's Your Story? The Threat of Getting Braces
What's Your Story? features the different characters that roam the streets of Toronto. Every Monday and Thursday, a new person shares their story, likes and dislikes about the city, a little secret and more.
What neighbourhood are you from? Parkdale
What do you 'do'? I work and I make music.
How long have you been in Toronto? All my life.
What's your story?
I'm trying to start my own label called ManMan Entertainment. I produce hip-hop, R&B and reggae. I write music. I've always written music since I was a child. I began with poetry and from there, it transcended into music. My friend has a recording studio so I can make my music there and not pay the crazy rates. When I'm not doing that, I dance.
To pay the bills, I'm all over the place.
Favorite thing(s) about Toronto:
This is a hard one. There are so many things. Every summer, I go to Caribana and I've only missed it once because I had the chicken pox.
Least favorite thing(s) about Toronto:
Even though I was born here, I'd say winter.
You have 24 hours to spend with someone who's never been to Toronto before - what do you do?
I'd probably take them to the CN Tower first - if it was summer - and then to the CNE and Wonderland. I'd probably also take them to a club.
One thing that your friends/family don't know about you:
I used to suck my thumb until I was 11 years-old. One day, I quit cold turkey. I think it was the threat of getting braces.
