MALACHI - Son of A Gun (21 Entertainment/Universal Music Canada/Republic Records): The Toronto hip-hop scene continues to spawn serious talent, and this fast-rising 21-year-old is the newest example.

Penned by MALACHI with production by KidThePro [Locals Only Sound], Son of A Gun is the first official release off his forthcoming mixtape, Bread Winner, slated for release later this year.

In a label press release, MALACHI explains that “On Son Of A Gun, I’m just more in tune with my frustrations. We had fun with that in the video, playing off the western theme and the juxtaposition of a serene, deserted ranch for the setting of a hip-hop video.”


The short cut (2.05 in length) showcases a smooth way with rhymes, along with the customary boasting - "Tell me your favourite rapper I could beat those, yeah don’t need a weapon I’m already lethal."

Son of a Gun is the follow up to MALACHI’s earlier 2019 releases, We Don’t Mind and San Fernando Wine, as well as his debut single, Right Now.

MALACHI spent his childhood surrounded by music of all kinds. His Trinidadian-born father had a reggae career, and MALACHI joined his grandmother's gospel choir at the age of 4. He now seems ready for prime time.

While his original tour announcement featured just one stop in his home country, in Toronto's Budweiser Stage, he's now announced dates in Manitoba, Alberta and B.C., as well as a second show at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, in response to "incredible fan demand."

The original tour was set to kick off in San Diego at the end of April and finish in Chicago in May. These five new dates pick things back up in July, with stops in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Young's hometown of Winnipeg. The tour finishes at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby B.C.
