You could say Emil was predestined to be onstage. While he was a budding rapper in high school messing with rhyming in his buddy’s basement, he attended a concert where he severally injured his thumb after an ambitious crowd-surfing antic where he attempted to mount the stage. Post high school, the pain from the injury truncated his desire to pursue a future in massage therapy, leaving him aimless and career less. With nothing to lose, he turned to thing that gave him the most pleasure: rapping.
L&K produced The Jump, tracking with Emil in a remote cottage in Montreal. Away from their routine, the trio formed strong creative ties as friends and collaborators. The results are an uncluttered aesthetic featuring bumping beats, tastefully imaginative soundscapes, and infectious hooks. Front and center are Emil’s explosive and sharp-witted rhymes.
