You know I’m not just talking,” he said. “There’s a cat by the name of Rich Kidd, he produces and raps. It is just a great ball of talent out there. Along with beautiful women.”

One beautiful Canadian he has gotten to know recently is Chantal Kreviazuk who co-wrote and appears on his new song “Pay For It”.

“I was introduced to her by my producer Soundwave who has been working with her and he told me about her. He didn’t even tell me that she was a big deal,” he said. “He just told me that she is a great vocalist, a great writer, a great musician. I heard her and I said, ‘You’re right.’ It wasn’t really about the name, it was about the art.”
