Growing up in multicultural Mississauga set hip-hop artist David Di Stefano on the path to becoming a rapper.
The Meadowvale resident, who goes by Triple D when performing, said the diversity of cultures helped introduce him to many types of music and sounds. During this period of discovery, Di Stefano stumbled on The Notorious B.I.G. and the rapper's gritty tales of a hardscrabble life in Brooklyn.
"It was just the way he rapped about his struggles and his delivery on the mic," he said.
It got Di Stefano interested in hip-hop and, while attending Our Lady of Mount Carmel Secondary School, he started making beats and rhymes.
On Thursday (May 13), he performs at The Central in Toronto as part of the Toronto Independent Music Awards' (TIMA) Best Live Urban competition. He's expected to hit the stage between 9:30 and 10 p.m. He'll be joined by Richie C and Spoila Ranks.
"It's a great opportunity," said Di Stefano. "I want this bad and have worked hard to make it happen. It's a constant grind, but you have to keep at it. For me, it can't be just another show. I treat each one like it's my last."
At Thursday's show, 31 artists will compete to be named the winner and appear at TIMA's awards ceremony on July 23 at The Phoenix Concert Theatre.
When it comes to writing, Di Stefano said he sticks to what he knows and focuses on everyday life.
"Everybody has their own story to tell and their own struggles," he said. "I like it when the music gets the crowd moving and they can feel the passion.
"If you bring raw emotion to the track, people can feel you're serious about the music and connect with it," he continued. "It's a rush, you know? No matter how many times I've done it, I still get that feeling."
Di Stefano plans to release his debut album next year.

Triple D Bio

Triple D, born David Di Stefano, 24 May 1985, Toronto, Ontario always knew he had a passion for music. He grew up in an Italian family living in a Mississauga neighbourhood called Meadowvale. A place where cultural diversity and urban lifestyles continue to flourish, Triple D had plenty of inspiration to cultivate his love for creating hip hop music for the masses. Triple D first took up rapping in high school, influenced heavily by the hard hitting lyrics of rap legends like Notorious BIG, Nas, Method Man and Eminem. Much like these classic rap artists, Triple D writes with his soul and lets his emotions and experiences speak through each of his songs.

With a unique urban sound ranging from powerful emotional songs about struggling through the challenges of life to the reggae and Jamaican influenced vibes of some of his party tracks, Triple D has a sound that can appeal to many. Bursting onto the Toronto scene with the number one hit “Heat it up” feat World renowned Reggae artist Spoila Ranks, which was on the charts for four straight weeks on the hip hop radio station 88.1 CKLN to being nominated for Best Live Urban at the TIMAs (Toronto Independent Music Awards), Triple D strives to make a name for himself in the hip hop industry all over the world. Getting fired up by his captivating performances in night clubs, private parties and even in tropical places like Jamaica, Triple D is a natural born entertainer who feeds off the love from his fans.

Getting his rapper alias “Triple D” from friends in high school for being that fun loving partier “Dirty Drunken Dave,” Triple D never forgets where he came from. He’s very grateful to his family and friends for all their support through the struggles the music industry throws his way. He never lets it get in the way of his dreams and aspirations to deliver timeless, powerful and moving music to his fans.
