CanConPadawan Yo just finished listening and even though have only heard once, safe to say its MathU's best album (imo)! Production wise this project has the best consistent level of beats. Math's always been super lyrical and sophisticated still he's extra mature and exponent 8 this time around. Props to MathU for REAL HIPHOP! PEACE Favorite track: Mayweather.

Vadell Gabriel Mathematik has always been in my top 5 Canadian emcees for a while, and probably the most underrated. Although he hasn't dropped a full length project since 2005's "No Division," ReAL/iS-HiM shows he hasn't lost his touch when it comes to being a true emcee. Favorite track: Painted Thoughts.

PRESS: INTERVIEW: MRCNNLIVE.COM
Canadian Hip-Hop pioneer Mathematik re-enters the spotlight with his new record Realishim, produced by REAZHUN, the follow up to his buzzworthy LP, No Division. In this interview the veteran emcee tells us about new projects, what he hope his fans gain from the new music, who his favorite super villians are and more.

PEACE MATHEMATIK WHERE YOU FROM?
I’m from Toronto Canada, spent my early years in a borough called Flemington Park, but was raised on the east side of Scarborough in Malvern.

TELL US THE CONCEPT BEHIND ‘REAL/IS-HIM’?
The concept behind ReAL/iS-HiM is as much a visual concept as a play on words, in the sense that, I’m breaking down the word to have
two meanings: that I am true to myself and in my approach to the music, and to show how I artistically manipulate words to show my style.

WHO MAKES YOUR BEATS?
All production on this album is done by a Producer who is a long time brethren of mine by the name of REAZHUN, and as usual all the cuts are done by myself.

WHAT DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TAKE AWAY FROM THIS NEW RELEASE?
What I want people to take from this album is my perspective of life from a boom bap point of view. I want listeners to feel good, have a sense of awareness and positivity, and be motivated.

ANY SHOWS OR TOURS COMING UP?
I have an upcoming show on May the 4th, 2019, in Toronto at Adelaide Hall, located at 260 Adelaide St. West with music by DJ GROUCH featuring myself and Nitty Scott. No tours to mention as of yet.

YOUR MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT DURING A SHOW??
My most embarrassing moment on stage I would say would be a time that I mixed down some music and pressed them on dub plates last minute, but not realizing they were all way too bass heavy, then after giving it my all on stage only to find out afterwards that nobody could hear me under all that bass from the music.

IF YOU COULD HAVE A SUPERPOWER LIKE BEING INVISIBLE OR FLYING, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?”
If could have any super power it would that of Jean Grey when evolved into the Phoenix.

FAVORITE SUPER VILLIAN?
My favourite super villain is Megatron. (MF DOOM a close second).

LAST SONG YOU HAD ON REPEAT?
Last song I had on repeat was Proud of Me, from Conway the Machine off of Eat What You Kill 2.

LAST WORDS OF ADVICE? OR SHOUT OUTS?
Peace! Thanks for the opportunity to converse with you and I hope everyone on your side gets to take in my latest project, give me a follow on IG @therealmathematik . And let’s all continue to strive to be the greatest example of the royalty we’ve descended from, for the children, the planet and future generations to come.

BIOGRAPHY:
Hip-Hop pioneer Mathematik is meticulous with his craft. His work knows no shortcuts and the proof is in his finely managed sound. Mathematik re-enters the spotlight to drop his new record Realishim, produced by REAZHUN, the follow up to his buzzworthy LP, No Division. Realishim delivers words that inform the mind while having feet planted firmly in assertive, heavy beats.

Mathematik is a multi-disciplinary artist (emcee, DJ, producer) who is deeply rooted in the music industry. He started out as a dancer in grade four, eventually evolving as a lyricist and then learning to DJ. As a once member of the soulful Hip-Hop crew Down to Erf, Mathematik's background embodies almost all the fundamental aspects of hip-hop culture. His roster of collaborators and cohorts reads like a Canadian Hip Hop ‘who’s who’ commemorative. Highlights include producer K-Cut, Sic Sense, Citizen Kane, Saukrates, and Dream Warriors. Additionally, he worked with Philly-based hip-hop queen Bahamadia, with whom he realised the 1999 notable single “Following Goals”.

ReAL​/​iS​-​HiM has been a project in the works for years. Influenced by freestyle and DJ cyphers, Mathematik delivers an authentic sound derived from the once golden era, along with some modern adaptations. Realishim carries an undeniably heavier feel than previous works, with commentary on systemic and daily experiences of oppression This shift in Mathematik’s work is what brings the album to an elevated platform.

“The difference between this and the No Division album is that I have more wisdom lyrically and speak out on more diverse topics... from the social and racial injustice all around us, to the regular struggles of life, and wanting to do better in mind body and soul”

This project is funded in part by FACTOR, the Government of Canada and Canada’s private radio broadcasters.
