Special blog post by StarCam reporter Jennifer Tapiero.
As you all know, I am always interviewing and on the lookout for stars and up-and-comers. Lately, I have been spotting some amazing talent. As a big fan of hip hop, I love listening to underground artists and rappers. I have interviewed tons of rappers like Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Drake.
If you are a fan of Drake, then you need to watch out for 18-year-old Dante Leon who is following right in Aubrey Drake Graham’s tracks. Seriously, this is the exact type of situation that Drake was in a few years back. Dante Leon is the next big thing. This guy has skills!
Dante Leon will be doing touring Canada soon and is already a household name amongst Toronto teens after the release of his mixtape, The Half Blood Prince. Son of Toronto reggae artist Michael Garrick, Dante grew up in Toronto and is proud of it. His new album, Northern Lights has just been released.
Below is a video of his new track, My City, about his beloved Toronto (video has some explicit lyrics):
