"I did a mixtape called Canadian Dream. Then I followed that up with another mixtape called When it Reigns it Pours. I went on tour with Drake across Canada when he did his Away From Home tour.
I couldn't do the American dates with Drake because I still had a gun charge pending.
"When it Reigns it Pours actually debuted Top 10 on the Canadian charts for albums with how much I sold within those two weeks on tour. Me and my niggas were just selling those CDs out of our backpacks. That's when people started coming up to me in the street asking for autographs and pictures.
"I had a lot of labels calling me from that and a lot of people flew out to the city to come meet me, but the fact that I couldn't travel always scared people away. I couldn't do the American dates with Drake because I still had a gun charge pending and I had some past charges that I needed to deal with, which I am still dealing with right now."
