Fortunato: Interview


The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

addiction, sex, freedom

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

A blue collar guy that loves too much

Why do you do what you do?

I was tired of feeling disposable so I chose a career where I felt irreplaceable

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

After working in a grocery store for 3. years I knew I had to change my life. I couldn't live like that.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Providing for my kids, my wife's support is the reason I'm still rapping and that my family is still together.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Snak The Ripper was the first artist I toured with that showed me what it meant to be a professional and how I needed to conduct myself in order to be successful.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I believed in people who I knew weren't as committed as I was thinking I could push them to be what I wanted them to be. Turned out to be a total waste of time but I learned a valuable lesson.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I have a project with Sean One coming out called the Blue Collar EP. I'm also shooting episodes of my show Track Battles in Halifax this Summer with DJ IV at TMG Studios and  I'll be touring Europe in May with Onyx.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Don't be afraid to fail, my failures have made me ten times stronger and if I was afraid of failing I would have never gotten to the point I'm at now.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I love Toronto, I was born and raised there, but moving to the east coast has given me a renewed sense of purpose. Don't be afraid to start over and make new friends.
