Meta-Tait has been rapping since he was 12. By the time he was 16, he had grown tired of the gangsta rap image and started delving into conscious hip-hop. Living in inner-city Edmonton, this offered him a more positive outlet than gangsta rap ever could. Since then, he's written about struggles in the community - from poverty, drug use, oppression, and the inter-generational legacy of residential schools. His engaging style exposes audiences to these issues, but at the same time leaves people energized and entertained.
