Name: D-Pryde

Age: 17

Reppin’: Toronto, ON

My style and/or skills have been compared to: Drake, Eminem, Mac Miller

I started rapping:
At 14 years old, in 2009.

My standout records and/or moments have been:
My collection of YouTube "freeverses;" holding it down for the Asian hip-hop community and expanding to capture the attention the rap game as a whole. Fat Joe has been watching my career since I joined Mars Music Group. Although we haven't worked together, Joe has been following my progress, offering a great deal of guidance and is a trusted sounding board.

I’m gonna change the game by: Showing that anybody in the game can have any kind of image/swag no matter what—that goes for a nerdy Asian kid from Canada obsessed with music and words too.

My goal in hip-hop is: To have fun and show everybody watching me that I love doing what I do, and it's all fun!

I’d like to work with: Drake—a hometown hero and also a huge influence on my music.

I’m gonna be the next:
Face of the youth for hip-hop, that can bridge to the older audiences as well.
