Following a tremendous 2016 and the release of his debut Until Now EP, Brampton, Ontario’s own, EverythingOShauN kicks off 2017 with a new single Co Sign which features additional vocals from Xpress and Aman.
When breaking down the meaning behind the song title for HipHopCanada, EverythingOShauN explains that a Co Sign is “essentially the thing that most people get either in music or in life to validate whatever they are doing” and adds that “a lot of co signs aren’t even genuine because it’s a political thing or one with a financial end game possibly. But not the real ones. The real ones have more true value. I like those when it’s just about the music.”
The commanding presence of Canadian hip-hop artist/entertainer EverythingOShauN is impossible to miss. Formally trained in the performing arts, he can take a crowd the moment he steps on stage, and carry them throughout an entire performance of vivid energy right unto the very last note. Off-stage, his diligent drive alone has chauffeured him through many self-sought successes, slowly but surely with his independent heart and spirit that will continue to trample any barriers in the way. EverythingOShauN born to parents of Nigerian and Jamaican lineage in the vibrant cradle of Toronto, raised with an appreciation for the arts and education. For him, creating music is a craft: embodying consciousness, everyday struggles, and feelings of all kinds while conveying them creatively for the purpose of inspiration and enjoyment is his end goal. From mellow and reflective to upbeat and aggressive – to everything in between and beyond – his versatility truly knows no bounds. Combining his bravado and athletic lyricism with the smooth productions of Xpress aka DJXP (his younger brother and GSX label-mate), their pieces of audible art are truly gratifying to both the ear and the soul. 2015 marked a resilient year for EverythingOShauN as he performed at both the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas and CMW in Toronto, Canada. This year, he will continue his streamline of success by releasing his long-awaited debut EP Until Now in March 2016.
