Toronto’s Portion is keeping a steady stream of music coming as he gears up for the release of a new project. Fresh off of the release of his single, “99 PRBLMS,” he returned with the follow-up, “Ties.” The rapper glides over hypnotizing flutes and acoustic guitar scales with pain-riddled melodies reflecting on the environment he and many others in Toronto grew up around.
“It’s relatable for a lot of young kids,” Portion said of his new single. “We grew up in a ruthless environment. It’s tough to make it out. I try to take my pain and make champagne with a lot of my music and this is another example of that.”
Portion is among those ushering in a new era of Toronto rap and we’re excited to hear what he has up his sleeves next.
