- Daddy Issues (ft. Backxwash & Charlie Noiir) Tremayne 2:49
Following closely behind his explosive returning single ‘Total Fucking Darkness’ revealed in April, Toronto based Rap star and Hip Hop artist Tremayne is quick to make his next move, with second 2022 single ‘Daddy Issues’ featuring Backxwash and fellow label mate Charlie Noiir. A collaboration of epic proportions, Tremayne has solidified his dynamic return with power, intrigue and authority, commanding attention, left, right and centre. All eyes are on him as he delivers yet another potent punch of musical prowess.
Enlisting the ferocious bars of Polaris Prize winner and metal Rap artist Backxwash, Tremayne demonstrates yet again his fearless, explorative and willing nature to push the boundaries, by partnering his unique blend of Rap and Hip Hop with the brash, intensity of Metal. Pioneering the way and inspiring others to collaborate and work together despite their respective genres, ‘Daddy Issues’ is an example of how limitless music is, alongside Tremaynes creativity.
“I definitely want to highlight Backxwash as being a hero on this song as her ability to give such a confident and powerful take on her perseverance in her parental experience is inspiring”
One of four members of the well respected STAYOUTLATE collective, Tremayne has been releasing music with fellow artistes Scotty IV, Charlie Noiir and YoungWolf, most recently with their 2021 debut album the show stopping and aptly named Fabergé.
Riding on the back of this momentous drop, 2022 has Tremayne ready to share what he’s quietly been working on. Dripping with confidence and integrity, ‘Total Fucking Darkness’ was the first slice of attitude. Punctuated with Tremaynes prolific energy, ‘Daddy Issues’ keeps the dial moving, captivating the listener from the very beginning.
A vulnerable and emotion-fuelled offering, ‘Daddy Issues’ explores each artist’s experience with their subsequent parental figures. Discussing the difficulties these relationships can present and how these pillars can influence growth and adulthood. Tremayne’s tone and calibre remains exciting, creative and utterly unstoppable as he dives deep into the toxicity present in these relationships, navigating the emotions and feelings that can surface such as pride, ignorance, stubbornness, guilt, resentment, confusion and anger in a braggadocios way.
“A strong and important take away I want listeners to have is to not be afraid, ashamed or too proud to vocalize and work through topics like these. A lot of shit can change and people can heal from a simple conversation”
With Charlie Noiirs capable vocals detailing the chorus, also written by Tremayne, the hook cleverly reinterprets lil Wayne’s 2006 single ‘stuntinlikemydaddy’. Unapologetic and theatrical, ‘Daddy Issues’ provides a cathartic outlet for others who have experienced similar difficulties.
All encompassed in an ingenious mix of alternative and classic Chicago town Hip Hop expertly blended with new wave Toronto style Trap, Tremayne masterfully paints with influences from the vast and vibrant myriad of Canada’s flourishing music scene.
“I think the concept of the collective consciousness of artists is reigning heavy. Knowing that both myself and one of the biggest rappers of my generation Kendrick chose to highlight this rarely, openly discussed topic that we notice a lot in the black community is super important to me, because it deserves a conversation”
Early career highlights see Tremayne having opened for Canadian hip hop legends Choclair and Classified alongside having performed on the same stage as United States R&B star Tinashe and Atlanta hip hop icon Rich Homie Quan. Also sharing the stage with Kanye West collaborator Sean Leon and Big Freedia, who Drake sampled on hit single ‘Nice For What’. With co-signs from former NY party queen Yesjulz and write ups on reputable platforms such as Vice, Complex and DJBooth it’s safe to say the anticipation for new music from Tremayne is as exciting for some as a Kendrick release.
Tremayne is a Toronto grown alternative hip-hop artist, known for his prolific performances and universally respected for his visceral songwriting. Tremayne began his career under the moniker T-Mayne, a nod to his birth name (Before T-PAIN was a thing). Deciding to keep his real name as his performance name was a subtle nod to the type of honesty Tremayne brings to his music.
Known for wearing his heart on his sleeve, whether on stage, on record, or in real life it has become a calling card for his image. Floating somewhere between the poetic, introspection of classic Chicago hip hop, and the contemporary trap sound waves of New Toronto, Tremayne explores the interpersonal workings of the artist mind, the bleeding heart and the human experience.
Tremayne takes a path rarely taken as an up and coming artist with his efforts to constantly create initiatives that support marginalised groups in their battles against injustice and inequality. Some examples are his yearly food drive with his collective STAYOUTLATE, his 2019 single KIDZ BOP 41 where all profits from streaming are being donated to the innocence project, or his initiative in 2020 to raise money for BIPOC mental health centre Across boundaries, where he was able to raise almost $3000 for the centre through sales of his music on bandcamp. He and his collective Stayoutlate look to leave an imprint on the entertainment industry. Carving their own piece of the pie and sharing it with generations to come.
