Where you from?
I’m a Canadian Artist from Toronto Ontario by the name of RampzOtwt. OTWT (Only Time Will Tell) is my brand that I created in a dark time of my life that has helped me grow as an individual/Artist. I Grew up in Vaughan City, then moved out East to Scarborough in Chester Lee where my father resided, then moved out west to Brampton/Mississauga.
How did you get your start in music?
I’ve always enjoyed music but My mom put me in singing/acting classes as a kid. I Hated it, but now I look back and thank her each and everyday for it. What got me started and interested about music was another artist from the region by the name of Yonge C. Knowing him personally and having access to him at that time and age of my life was clutch for me because I could always ask him directly for advice on style, sound, lyrics which he always gave me.

My influences are my mother, wiz khalifa, lil Wayne, Justin Timberlake, 50 cent, jay-z, 2pac, Belly, The Weekend, Tory Lanez, Party next door & obv the man who opened doors for our city Drake
What motivates you?
My mother, my mother, my mother! She was the one who put me in those silly musical plays/drama classes after school. I thought it was corny but my mother saw a talent in me at young age that has been beneficial and has helped me in this industry till this day.
What are you currently working on?

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself and my brand as one of the juggernauts in the music industry.
What is your opinion on the current hiphop scene?
