“Five Minutes With” Canadian rapper, singer and producer, Sty-Low

Sty-Low AKA Mister D.O.P.E (Determination On Point Everyday) is a Canadian rapper, singer and producer out of Toronto. Mixing the roughness of Hip-Hop and the melodies of R’n’B, he is all about making good music with a meaning. Influenced by 90’s West Coast Hip-Hop, especially artists like Bone Thugs N Harmony and 2Pac, producers like Dr. Dre, Dj Quik and DJ U-Neek, his trademark is a low-toned yet energetic/fast rap style he named “Whisper Roar”, and very melodic beats. Sty-Low is all about “Keeping good music afloat in a wack music ocean” and brings you the kind of music you want to abuse the repeat button for.
