Mississauga, Canada (Greater Toronto Area) – 22-year-old Mike “Cannz” has always known his destiny was to perform. Entertainment, on any platform, is his true calling and the root of his identity. His artistic journey began as an actor, performing for television and film, but he always knew music was his fate. Three years ago, the artist decided to take his hobby and make it a career, beginning his endeavor by creating his own production company, Ten Ten Entertainment. Now, the young Canadian is eager to make his debut with single “Do You” which is bound to leave listeners wanting more from Cannz.
Influenced by fellow musician and Canadian, Drake, Cannz has carefully calculated his entrance onto the rap scene. Says the artist of Drake, “How he releases music, everything happens for a reason. He knew what he was doing. Everything flowed perfectly.” The performer has used the same strategy in carefully planning the release of his single, “Do You.” The song is a testimony of growth and dreams on the part of the young rapper, who calls the song “a spark, that will light a fire” in his life and career.
Being Canadian and white, Cannz knows he stands out. But, it’s not just his diversity from the traditional rap demographic that makes him unique – his music is a sound that’s yet to be heard, and his lyrics aim to entertain. “If you’re in a bad mood, you come to my show, and your mood is turned around.”
Ultimately, it’s Cannz’s music that will do the talking. “I’m confident in my music,” says the artist. “I just want to show people your dreams really can come true.”
