“INTERVIEW WITH FRESH IE, CANADA’S FIRST GRAMMY-NOMINATED RAPPER January 22, 2015 Shifters 1254 Fresh_title_feature1 Winnipeg’s Fresh IE on the next generation and why he’s more focused on making an impact than keeping up with the Joneses. In 2005, Canadian hip-hop artist Fresh IE stepped onto the stage of a theatre packed with angry gang members. They lined the walls, watching him closely. Without knowing it, he was performing in the same place where a gang member had been murdered the week before. To make matters worse, without realizing it he was wearing the colours of their rival gang.

“Death Of A Rapper is the most personal and painful project released by Rob Wilson, aka Fresh IE. Every song is an expression of emotions from a man who discovers how deeply flawed he truly is. After almost losing everything that he loves and over coming thoughts of suicide, Fresh IE turned once again to what helped save his life 13 years ago, making music. The result is the new 13 song album. Death Of A Rapper is about Fresh IE discovering who Rob Wilson really is and how vulnerable he really is. About a man who is more than just a two time Grammy Nominee, or the First Canadian Rapper to be nominated for a Grammy Award. More than the man who won dozens of awards and more than the man who spent 12 years trying to encourage youth all over Canada and the United States to live their best lives. Death Of A Rapper is more of a statement of how Fresh IE went from grace to glory, from glory to disgrace and back to grace.”
