MONTREAL, QUEBEC – Slasher Jones, young inspirational rapper from the South Shore has been making noise in Montreal’s hip hop community for already several years. Passionate about music, he eventually entered the universe of ‘Rap Battling’ that fascinated him since his youth. As experiments writing his own texts multiplied, he soon dived into the art of ‘freestyling’. Barely six months after his first rhymes, he entered 11check’s rap battle competition in 2008.
With persistence and constant effort, he eventually comes into his own winning two rap-battle editions and finishing 3rd in the 2009 yearly finals held by 11check and reuniting the best rap-battle performers of the year. Soon thereafter, he joins King of the Dot, the official rap-battle league of Canada and currently holds an unbeaten streak over two appearances.
While tearing it up in the ‘battle scene’, he has been working on producing his own songs leading to scorching performances at Foufounes Electriques, Belmont, Cafe Chaos, Koi Lounge, Trois Minots, among others, edging him to the heart of Montreal’s hip hop scene.
