Interview by: Martin BaumanWhen it comes to Canadian producers, few can match the pedigree of Slakah The Beatchild. The Sarnia-born, Toronto-based producer/singer/emcee not only earned a Juno for his work with Divine Brown (2009's The Love Chronicles), but has also produced for the likes of Drake, Melanie Durrant, and Shad. On top of that, he continues to create acoustic-oriented, genre-defying music as The Slakadeliqs and serves as one half of the boom-bap influenced group Art of Fresh (along with D.O.). Suffice it to say, he's a well-rounded musician. Now, Slakah is gearing up to release his latest project, Soul Movement Vol. 2. The Come Up Show caught up with Slakah to discuss his upcoming album, J Dilla's influence, his thoughts on Drake's Grammy win, and much more. Hit the skip to read the full interview.
