Smoke Dawg first made waves when he and MO-G dropped the viral hit “Still” in 2015. Since then the Canadian rapper has recorded with grime heavyweight Skepta, performed on Drake’s Boy Meets World tour, and dropped multiple hits with coveted producer Murda Beatz. In this behind the scenes documentary, Noisey caught up Smoke Dawg in Toronto where he talked about his rise, the passing of his best friend, and how to break out of Toronto's glass ceiling. Though reserved, at least in comparison to his rap persona, Smoke Dawg has a lot to say and a lot more he wants to prove, locally and worldwide.
