“Deuce Fantastick-No Fate Without Action”
— deuce fantastick
I am a local hiphop artist that believes I can make a change in the world through music. I was born and raised in Edmonton, AB and am proud to say that I am a first generation Canadian. I am passionate about social issues and I believe a little bit of love can go a long way.
Both of my parents came to Canada from Jamaica in hopes of making a better life for themselves, and giving their family a chance at life out of third world conditions. In the early stages of my life we were living in low income housing and utilizing the aid and support offered to us. It was then my parents found that poverty isn't only in third world countries, but that it is everywhere around us. By the time my parents had gotten on their feet, they were already sending money back home to their families in Jamaica- they were able to teach us us that we are all connected, that you don't need a lot to give, and that everyone needs a little help sometimes. I've seen third world poverty at its most extreme and I have walked a mile in the shoes of a struggling family. I know that there is no fix over night, but I hope that I am able to inspire change so that the world my son grows up in is a better place than today or yesterday.
