Kayo: We’re Trapped in the Era of the TURN UP

kayo podcast

My guest today was born and raised in the Caribbean island of St.Lucia. He arrived in Canada to attend St.Mary’s University in Halifax in 2009 where he completed a marketing degree and now calls Toronto home between trips back to the island. A lot has happened in those years – being signed by Classified, and multiple cross-Canada tours supporting artists such as Snoop Dogg and Chali 2na from Jurassic 5.

Classified introduced me to Kayo five years ago in London. The same night I interviewed Kayo about his love for Hip-Hop. In 2012 and 2013, Martin interviewed Kayo about his tour with Snoop Dogg and the Escape Movement. It’s been a few years so I was very excited to catch up with Kayo. We talked about his latest EP Nowhere and why he feels like it’s his best work thus far. Kayo also talks about how he challenges himself to balance substance vs style and why he thinks we’re trapped in the era of the TURN UP. There are a ton of jewels shared in this interview and I would love your comments on our conversation below. Enjoy!
