Proverbs and Herbs is my debut album as a soloist, but don’t let that make you think I did it alone. The 13 tracks contained here are the result of over a year of Mondays spent underground at the Spott Music studios, swimming through subterranean clouds, reflecting on the world and banging out music with this album’s producer, Kolor Brown. We gave you only our favourites (that’s not a typo, it’s Canadian spelling), no filler. This is Hip-hop from my soul and I’m proud of every cut. Enjoy!
Thank you’s: I would like to thank the Most High, my children Shiann (a.k.a. DJ Lyfe) and Jesiah, the love of my life Shonelle C., my parents Eddie Nias and Debra Goins, my brothers Michael and Jacob, my sister Jessica, my extended family on both sides (Nias, Henry, Benjamin, Goins, Canterbury, etc.), my Lootaz Mob brothers (for life…), my Crown A Thornz brothers (salute!), the Wilson family (BDA), Fresh Arts, Maroon Squad, Exco Levi, Wendy Motion, Saukrates, Rich Kidd, everybody in Antigua, Bermuda and Canada, all the young bucks who record at PEACH and Firgrove, all the original Vaughan Road heads living and departed and anyone who took the time to listen to this man’s album. If I didn’t mention you by name or as part of a group, blame the head and not the heart. Nuff love!

First introduction to ‘O‘ (not to be confused with this ‘Oh’) – a dude that under his aka T.R.A.C.K.S. has been a crucial part of two highly respected groups – IRS & Big Black Lincoln (BBL) – that gave us two of the city’s most critically acclaimed albums: “Welcome to Planet IRS” & “Heaven’s Caught On Fire” respectively.
“T.R.A.C.K.S. Lament” gave us our first taste of the kid as a singer; “Clementine” – his duet with Andreena Mill – became one of many classic cuts off the BBL project; and his production/vocals on “Things Change” made it a stand out single in Mayhem Morearty’s catalouge. Last time we heard him was about a year ago when he relinked with IRS to drop vocals on “Rock For You” featuring Promise; and produce “No Regrets” featuring Frankie Payne, Kardi and Kim Davis; all off TRF’s solid “The New North” album.
“Yesterday’s Tomorrow” is a collection of cuts he put together a couple years back but is officially releasing now. So in that sense, it’s a taste of where he’s been musically and kinda serves as a precursor for what to expect moving forward from this super humble and talented Toronto artist.
Definitely looking forward to hearing more!
