Arts Fortune & Fame speaks with Toronto music legend and 4x platinum selling music producer 2Rude of Rudimental Records. He speaks on his Jamaican background, learning music from a rock and roll perspective, the influence businesses like Play De Record in Toronto had on his career and the music industry in the city; plus he touches on subjects like ‘branding’ and shares his experience about doing remixes for major labels & much more.
At an early age, I learned to play drums from the Rock-n-Roll side of music… meanwhile while I was also still into Hip-Hop and R&B and other stuff. To be introduced to that side of music was amazing!
They also got a break down of how the Canadian hip hop classic “Stick To Your Vision” record by Toronto OG Meastro Fresh Wes came together and how 2 Rude got to meet members of the legendary rock and roll band The Guess Who at the Juno awards after sampling their music for the beat. This video was shot and edited by NOMAD.
This interview aims to pay homage to one of the originators of the Canadian urban music industry and recognizes them for their various achievements and successes… but more importantly is meant to say “thank you” for their efforts in building a strong foundation and pathway for the new generations of Canadian talent.
