After many successful years with hip-hop group, Swollen Members, Madchild creatively branched out as a solo artist in 2012 with his debut title track,”Dope Sick.”
The album was well received which earned Madchild the highest chart position of his career, #3 on the Canadian Billboard Top 200, and #7 on the U.S Heatseekers Chart, the Juno Award nomination in the category of “Rap Recording of the Year”, as well as nominations for a Sirius XFM and the Canadian Independent Music Awards.
Madchild immediately hit the road on a sold-out Canadian tour with Tech N9ne which was followed-up with a 40 date headlining tour across the country where he performed at sold-out venues to his beloved fans.
Madchild has relentlessly toured with numerous artists such as La Coka Nostra, Tech N9NE, Redman, and many others. His grueling tour schedule over the years has earned him fans in every single city, and to this day, his loyal fan base continues to grow.
As success grew, Madchild’s battle with his personal demons increased. However, with the help of his family, friends, and the unwavering support of his fans, he was able to grab hold of his life and renounced his former lifestyle.
Madchild found complete solace in the arms of his music, and he bunkered down in his home studio, secluded from the outside world, where he had his creative rebirth in crafting some of the best verses of his entire career.
Madchild continues to give back to his community, he speaks at local high schools in British Columbia as well as youth groups surrounding the perils of gang violence and drug addiction. He has helped and continues to inspire countless youth through his music, and community service. Madchild strives to help youth learn a lesson from his mistakes and have a positive impact on their futures.
