Biography

Slink'B entered the industry with live performances, mixtape features, compilation tracks and online rap videos that earned him a reputation as a talented young artist in the hip hop world. A Toronto, CA native, he started freestyling at 14 hanging out with the east end crew Amazon Fam led by his older cousin, underground DJ/Producer Noodal GrandStyle. Fellow emcees and 'partners-in-crime' Golden Child and Plus Mo completed the trio crew Teflon, establishing the strongest new rap presence in the local urban scene.

In 2005 he co-founded MO Records, delivering the double-disc "The M.O. Collection", featuring such hits as "Come Home Wit Me", Plus Mo's "Don't Stop", and Golden Child's "Street Song", which recieved high praise in the industry and strong radio spins for the summer of '05. The album went on to sell close to 1500 copies without ever hitting stores. The group has since done numerous shows, appearing at the Urban Showcase Concert for Canadian Music Week, Dame Dash/VIBE magazine's "How Can I Be Down" conference, opening the 10th Anniversary show for hit R&B group 112, and continuing to build fans by playing college and underground hip hop /alternative venues.

A self-described "beat junkie", Slink's musical influences include A Tribe Called Quest, Snoop Dogg, jazz greats such as Chick Coreia and Miles Davis, and soul pioneers like Roy Ayers and Issac Hayes. A musician by nature, he played piano by age 8, and drum set by age 12. During his mid-teens he was the rhythm behind the jazz combo Saxcessories, recording two CDs before the group disbanded. Leaving his aspriations of working as a professional musician behind, he went on to study Management at Ryerson University, continuing to write, record and perform as a hip hop artist outside the classroom.

These days, Slink has come to be known as one to watch for mainstream success, aligning MO Records with a team of powerhouse producers and beatmakers to record his upcoming debut album, "Ace of Diamonds". His style is a unique blend of rhythmic wordplay and vivid imagery paired with melodic hooks that make an impact with listeners of any background. "I'm just making the music I like, stuff I'd listen to", the smooth-talking rapper said in a 2006 interview with Ryerson University newspaper The EyeOpener. "This is my sound, that hot new sh*t that people like me can get down with. They just gotta hear it, gotta see it. At the end of the day, I'll keep doin my thing."

Got me feelin real loose wit cake
Said I was leavin for L.A.
In about a day, uh
This Cuban princess
Got me givin her lyrics
About a mile a minute
She smilin wide
I'm feelin the vibe
She said she likes my style
A real go-getter
Ever since I met her
Been grindin like shorty was chedda
I been rhymin for ever
So I rhyme wit no effort
I was blessed wit a gift
Nobody needed to tell her
But see I made it known
We both sexy & grown
Blow up my cellular phone
Textin me X's and O's
See we could take it slow
Or I could take ya home
From the top to the low
Love that ya lover's a pro
We'll go to Paris, London, Rome
I coulda brought any girl
But I only thought of one

[Chorus]

[V2 - Plus Mo]

Gotta love the movie life

We spendin the night
Yo I love how rap pays off
Never mind that

Lotta misses just want Plus straight up

Doin my thing man
Gotta find friend

And they know I'm bout em shows
And now she wanna roll
Wit the '07 breakthrough
Baby let em hate you
If I can't take you
They wanna replace you
I know its funny
Cause you know I'm so right
And uh
What's real funny is
This happens every night

And the ass hella tight
And you gotta go get it
When you get the yellow light hey
Gotta go get it
When you get the yellow light hey

[Chorus x2]
