Born in the low-income Woodlands neighbourhood outside of Toronto, River moved to Europe in his early teens after showing promise as a professional soccer player.
The tragic murder of his cousin led him back home, where he dropped out of school and set his sights on rapping. A few freestyles and a music video quickly garnered him buzz in the city, so much so that XXL named him “The next artist to blow out of Canada after Drake”. After a life threatening incident left him hospitalized for the better part of a year, the young rapper looks set to deliver on the potential that’s been synonymous with his name.
