StreetWise's goal has always been to inspire social change through the self expression of hip-hop. Using struggles from his life and what he has witnessed from the world he uses his music as a lyrical sword in an attempt to pierce capitalism and social injustice. Growing up in Sudbury, Ontario with influences such as Tupac and Immortal Technique he has developed a unique style to attract audiences of all ages.
StreetWise is currently working on his first solo album with a number of producers namely, Doctor Punisher, Joeyt. Multimedia Productions, and Chapter 7 Productions. His intention for 2012 is to finish his album, continue creating music videos for his art, and begin to outreach and tour throughout Canada.
StreetWise began writing poetry and rhymes when he was 10 years old. Mentored by Vision of Chronically Ill by 16 he quickly gained skill in the art of lyricism. He joined a hip hop group called Kold Nawledge in the beginning of 2009 at age 19 with hip hop artists King (now known as King Karma) and Babyboy (now known as Theory’s Given) which began gaining him recognition in his local scene by opening up for artists such as Dead Celebrity Status, Choclair and Serani. Streetwise left Kold Nawledge in January 2011 after almost 3 years to pursue his solo career. Since then he has released his first mixtape entitled "Split Personality" as a free download on mixconnect.com, he released three music videos, and opened up for artists such as Test Their logic, D-Sisive, and Swollen Members.
