"This record marks an extremely important milestone in Canadian Hip-Hop. It's a bold statement made alongside intergenerational voices to convey a powerful, unified message to the people of Toronto at a time when many lives continue to be lost to senseless gun violence.
The multi-generational component combined with the life experiences and knowledge that these artists bring to this song is very powerful. I truly believe this is the most important Canadian hip hop record ever made” – Dub J
Wish I Could charted #1 On October 23, 2020. It debuted on the iTunes charts at #57 and climbed to #1 on November 9, 2020. Not only did the track top the Hip-Hop Chart, but it also charted as the #1 song of all genres, beating out Justin Bieber & Benny Blanco’s hit song Lonely. Wish I Could has been chosen as the theme song for the US feature film Sons 2 The Grave, coming out worldwide later this year.
More from Dub J:
Starting now, you’ll begin seeing the Enough logo appear all over Toronto. We have already connected with numerous clothing stores, sneaker shops and jewellery stores.
Also starting today, we are happy to announce that popular Toronto directors like Knemesis, Brown Guy Made This, and others have agreed to no longer shoot videos for artists' songs that can incite violence. These are all steps in the right direction.”
