Reek Da Fool makes us laugh & when we weren’t laughing, I could tell he was thinking about how to make us burst. Interestingly, his content also makes one think about some serious issues, which is a very powerful thing & when one thinks, they problem solve, plan, strategize & sometimes even learn something.

Reek Da Fool is dedicated to ensuring that comedy remains a vibrant & integral part of our school & educational culture. His comedy is influenced by a variety of voices & perspectives, from the absurd to the profound. His writing focuses on social issues & the human experience, often examining the absurdities of the world & the people in our lives.

For all his bluster, Reek Da Fool is a man of few words. He is a performer & his silence is the best weapon in his arsenal. No matter how badly he is being roasted, Reek keeps his silence. He stares blankly & listens intently.

Expressing his love for what he does, Reek said, “I love comedy. I love it so much that I made a YouTube channel dedicated to it. I’ve watched comedy everywhere – from stand-up to improv to sketch comedy to sketch improv to comedic improv to sketch comedy & more & I started looking beyond stand-up comedy to other forms of art. Looking at others’ work has shaped the comedy I make, as well as my own comedy.” He continued, “I’m currently working on creating a studio, so I can focus on my craft more. But, for now all of my work is presented on all social media platforms.”

My vision: To create beautiful, technical, versatile, athletic & entertaining works. Teaching contemporary, jazz, heels & more. Also, starting my own dance company, is only the top of the iceberg.

Inspiration artists: Phil Orsano

Where I wanna be in 10 years?I plan on being a business owner, owning my dance company (Company 1000) & running at least one (maybe 2) dance studios.

I love to dance & ballet. It’s my most favorite thing in the world to do. When I’m not dancing or studying it, I’m thinking aboutdance or ballet. I’m also a big fan of the dance & ballet community. Devon exclaimed, then added, “When I was little, the first thing I wanted to be when I grew up, was a dancer. I loved watching the high kicks & the twirls in ballet, also the grace & power of modern dance. I wanted to be able to move like that, to feel what it felt like to be on stage, in front of a crowd. It was the first thing I thought about when I woke up & the last thing I thought about before I fell asleep.”

Talking about the importance of support in his career domain, Devon claimed, “It is important to remember, that the success of any young dancer depends on the support of their parents. Their dedication, hard work & sacrifice, is what gets them to where they truly want to be. It is also their love, guidance & support that will help them reach their goals. As a parent, it is my responsibility to provide my child with the best possible education & training, so that they can reach the highest level of their potential as a dancer.”

Expressing his admiration for dance art, he said, “Dance & ballet are two of the most popular forms of art in the world. They are both physically & emotionally demanding & both require years of training & dedication; to become absolutely great. While ballet focuses on grace & poise, dance is all about expression & movement. It’s no wonder that many people find these arts to be beautiful, artistic & inspirational.”

He said that if I could just put pen to paper & record my thoughts, it would make me wiser, more intelligent & better able to deal with the world around me. At the time, I didn’t really understand what he meant. But now that I’m older, I can see that writing has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Investing my time in refining my writing skills helps me today; while writing lyrics or finding classy words.”

Where I wanna be in 10 years?Hope to one day do a song with all these artists I grew up listening to; they helped me become the person I am today.

Talking about the current hip-hop scene, Sololex said, “It is a hard truth, that fans of hip hop & rap music often have a tendency to idolize their heroes. They will often remember the small things that their favorite artists did, to show respect to their fans, like sending a thoughtful text or making an effort to speak to a fan when they’re in a public place. Sometimes, this can lead to fans being slighted by their favorite artist. For example, when K-pop’s idol rapper PSY, was in the United States, he was met with a lot of criticism, for only speaking to white people & ignoring his fans of color.”

Then talking about his favorite artists, he said, “In the world of hip hop, there’s a lot of great rappers, but very few who can claim to be the absolute best. That title is usually reserved for a small group of artists, who have achieved greatness in the industry; earning respect from both fans & critics alike. One of the most famous of these rappers, is the legendary Kendrick Lamar, who has become one of the most successful rappers in the game; selling millions of [albums] & earning countless awards & accolades in the process.”

Sololex has a great determination for what he wants & we wish him the very best in his future endeavors.

Melodic rap is a genre that combines elements of rap, pop & other genres, to create something fresh & exciting. It is characterized by fast-paced songs with complex rhyme schemes & lots of hooks. It has been growing in popularity globally, especially in Canada & the US, where big acts like Post Malone, Juice WRLD & 21 Savage have become superstars.

Still digesting the news of the new album, from the man who single-handedly brought the art form of rap music back from the dead, the world is still trying to figure out exactly what MGE is all about. Is he a rock star rapper, a pop rapper, a country rapper, or something else entirely? The truth is, MGE is all of those things & more. He’s a master of melodic rap with the skills to match.

Talking about his recent work, he said, “You all are probably wondering what this project is all about. Maybe you’re even a little skeptical. I can understand those feelings. After all, I’ve been writing rap music for years. Give it some time; the genius will dawn on you!”

Responding to a question about his childhood, he said, “When I was younger, I always wanted to be a writer. I spent hours, even days, sitting in cafés, staring out of the window, imagining what it would be like to be a famous writer. I imagined receiving letters from fans, who would tell me how much they loved my work. I imagined being able to write without censorship, without fear of being deemed crazy or offensive.”
