Big Lean is back with new track ‘Dumb Rich’
He discovered his passion for rap when he was 19 years old, 2 years after his friend Blitz, a local rapper died. Lean had never thought about rapping before but somehow felt it was his duty to carry on his friend’s legacy. Hush aka Young Tony, a fellow Parma Court artist and friend was Lean’s rap mentor. “I learned a lot from him, just by watching him and listening to him rap,” said Lean.
When asked how he wants to be known, Big Lean had this to say: “I want to be known as the kid from Toronto, Canada, from metro housing, the projects, who did it big from the ground up and never forgot where he came from. I’m doing this for the people in my neighborhood and the people in housing projects around Toronto. I want to show them that just because we’re from that environment it doesn’t mean we can’t make it big.”
