Tell us about yourself: I am an original unique story – CPA turned Rapper
Raeshaun 25 Mississauga – Near square one
Fun story here – Born in Toronto – Moved to Mississauga. Always loved hip hop – but ended up going to UofT, getting a Bachelor of Commerce, working at KPMG one of the big four accounting firms for 2.5 years. The moment i got my CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant) designation (January 2018) I sent a firm wide e-mail (7000 people across Canada) stating I was quitting to pursue my rap career full time. Everyone from the secretary, to the mail room, to the CEO got this email (link below). The e-mail went viral on Reddit and among the financial sectors giants world wide, one track got 45K hits from it. People in the States, Australia, world wide e-mailed me saying they were inspired.
My sound is developing, I have that fun flow, but am crafting more mellow tunes as we speak. I am a rapper, producer, engineer (basically a Russ without the bragging aspect LOL).
I want to inspire the masses with meaningful songs and emotion. I want people to hear me and resonate with the music and the entrepreneur dream chasing attitude. I want people to know you’re never too old to do what you truly want. I need me some Grammys that is the goal.
Check me out on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, etc.
