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

Family, Dreams, Ambition, Success

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

I am a artist, Musician, Writer, Actor, The Modern Day Pac haha

Why do you do what you do?

Because its the reason Im here on this earth, Everyone has a purpose, a path, and I’m just on mine doing what I’m suppose to do, turn my dreams into goals and accomplish them to the fullest in hopes to get a big enough voice and presence in this world that I will be able to make change for people and my family.

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

I always had a passion for music and the arts, but I was also always a athlete a Basketball player so that took all my focus for most of my life. When that chapter ended I just transferred all that passion and work eithic I had learned in all the years of basketball over into music, and 6 years later here I am!

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

Leaving my family and friends and home town to chase my dreams solo. It was tough coming to Toronto alone and having to build my name by myself, It was a lot of hard work but I made all the right moves and proved myself, now Id like to consider myself one of the guys really out there wavin the flag for the new generation of Hip Hop artists in the country.

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

Yeah I get inspired daily, from many different people doing many different things. from my family to my friends, to people Ive never met that go through worse struggles than me and can still smile everyday, that inspires me to be better. Ive inspired people before, that is my main goal with my music is to make sure people feel my energy and passion and hope to pass that on to them. Thats why I’m the leader to the DDE (Dream Driven Ent).. #DreamDriven

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

Spent a lot of money in the wrong places, and let people take advantage of me in situations. Yes I’ve learned and thats why now a days I make sure I get what I deserve and play all my situations smart.

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

I have two projects in the works right now. A Mixtape coming 1st of June, to be followed with my EP in August.

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

My advice would be to just believe in yourself and if you want something get up and go out there and do it, only one life to live, why not live it being #DreamDriven . Be careful who you trust and don’t turn you back on the dream and the dream will never leave you.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Thanks for the interview and follow me on all my social media keep up to date with all the shows, summer tours, new music and videos!! Much Respect! - Cap E

Kanye West is my fav visual artist, just about every video he has put out has been on a high level of thought and changed the game as far as visuals go in music. Fav photographer would have to be a good friend of mine Justin Main. To see him excel to the level he is at in the three years I’ve know him is just inspriational. He has his own unique style and approach to photography, some may say he is a editing genius! Much respect to my bro! Filmmaker-  also another friend of mine that I was lucky enough to work with Suds Sutherland. He directed the film I debuted in called The Phantoms, It released on CBC television and went on to win an International Emmy Award among other awards, You can see the film on NetFlix or get a dvd copy at HMV, Walmart and where other dvds are sold. Suds also directed the Film called Home Again which went on to win awards and bring his career to the next level, he is a true inspiration.
