Maestro Fresh Wes on Sweet 16s

Maestro Fresh Wes’s 1989 track “Let Your Backbone Slide” still holds the title of the best-selling Canadian Hip Hop single of all time, which surprisingly manages to still surpass the 6ix god, Drake. Wes paved the road for young artists in the generation after him, and after all these years, he’s remained active in the music scene, releasing albums and collaborating with fellow Canadian artists such as Divine Brown and Lights. His latest effort, Compositions, Vol. 1, is a fresh reminder that he’s still got the poetic qualities he has always been known for. Check out another episode of Sweet 16’s hosted by King Reign.
