Choclai2r
Choclair, Toronto, ON.
Rapper
In 1997, Ontario native Kareem Blake (performing as Choclair), released the single "21 Years" and was rewared with Canada's version of the Grammy- the Juno- for his debut efforts. The following year, he walked away with another Juno for Northern Touch and the accolades didn't stop there, as the emcee was awarded the prestigious Artist of the Year from the Urban Music Association of Canada in the summer of 1999. That's coming a long way from freestyling at house Parties in the mid-eighties as a teenager. Choclair ("light as air") performed at school and at talent shows before hooking up with fellow Canadian emcees and producers Kardinal Offishall, Saukrates and Jully Black. In short order, he became the first Canadian signed onto a major American label (Virgin's Priority Records) and released his first full-length album, Ice Cold, to heat up the charts in early 2000. ~ Roxanne Blanford, Rovi

While in this period L.I.P had been part of numerous musical groups and projects, a lot of which he never received proper credit for, as his passion and love for music outweighed his desire for validity which would change Instantly when he was released from a Jamaican hospital cheating death, after being hit by a transport vehicle.

3habe
Habe, Edmonton AB
Songwriter/Performer
Born on October 12th, 1980 in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, Habe's musical talent was not instantly evident, but his passion for life was. There's very little mystery about him. What you see is what you get. He spent most of his childhood years living back and forth between Canada and his homeland. His musical influence began at the age of 5; dancing in local shows and competitions in Tanzania as well as listening to of as many records and tapes he could get his hands on. His favorites include icons such as Sade, Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, Seal, James Brown, H-Town, The Temptations, Gloria Estafan, Maxwell, Lionel Richie, Jodeci and D'Angelo. If his musical style was to be summed up in one sentence; Habe has the passion of a Tupac Shakur, mixed with the Charisma and charm of a Marvin Gaye. He is the voice of the people - The people who for years have been told to stop holding on to foolish dreams, to give up because of where they are from. The people who have gone against the grain, against popular opinion. Calling Habe stubborn would be an understatement. God put him on this earth to make people happy and at the same time, teach as much as he can about the ups and downs of life. His success in music will be a testament to life more than a personal accolade. -- “In the eyes of empire builders men are not men but instruments” - Napoleon Bonaparte

I mainly do collaborations with local artists here up north such as: Poetry in motion, Messy Jesse, Bliz, Blas and many more.
