On December 4th, 2013, Toronto emcee and producer, Xolisa, dropped her debut-self produced EP entitled, “A Beautiful Mind”.
Fast forward to the present day, as the Canadian native is preparing to bring to her city her first solo show on April 10th, named after the EP’s last track, “A Beautiful Moment”, the emcee drops the first set of visuals to accompany the project.
As a collaboration project with Urban Evolution Entertainment’s, “YYZ Hilightz”, as a part of their “Innovators of Culture” March series, Xolisa brings to us an up close and extremely personal a cappella performance of the EP’s first single,“A Beautiful Mind”, which stands as a powerful introduction to the song’s official music video, which also drops in April (shot, directed and edited by Erik Flowchild).
Be sure to watch the full YYZ Hilightz, “Up Close-History Makers” interview with Xolisa and Jemelle Williams, as she opens up and speaks on the process behind the EP’s creation as well as her personal growth and identity as an artist.
