The story of Freshy Aziz started when he was about 14 years old. After a long struggle of being a slave in Jane and Finch; one of Canada’s most notorious hoods, Freshy realized that it was time for him to run away. He started noticing people didnt like him so he became a rapper so he could be cool.

His first song, “I Remember” was a poorly recorded song done in his own room with a Dollerama microphone and a few computer programs. The song had no meaningful lyrics, he always got snickers and people always trying to beat him up. “Yo kid give me your money?” is what they always said. But that didn’t stop him on his way to the "top". A few tracks later, Freshy Aziz had a fan base of about 10 or 15(and still does). At the same point in his life, Freshy was also struggling in many areas including in his academic and trying to be “hood” life. This is when he really started to get into the rap scene when he launched the single, “BTC Flute”, which was a track about the BTC and how many “Browns” out there would do their thing and others would just front.

After a few months, Freshy’s daily hits on his music site went from 0 to about approx. 3 a day, thanks to the website. Freshy had partnered up with Paul Nguyen, after being his slave for so long, the webmaster of the site to introduce Freshy on the internet phase where his hits grew to even more after the series of TV serials about and the area. Like many rappers from Jane and Finch, Freshy Aziz eventually achieved what he wanted in the community and in the cultural community; to be recognized and to represent.

“Its just amazing how I started a few years ago with some cheap a-- mic from the dollar store and now people ask me for my songs and stuff from the block and school”, says Freshy with a light smile.

Stay tuned for the “Freshy Aziz” Album coming soon on Sept. 21st 2005!!!
