About the artists
Quincy Morales is a Filipino-Canadian hip-hop artist from Scarborough, Ont. He was a 2019 Top 10 Finalist on CBC Searchlight, recognized as an Agent of Change in ABSOLUT Vodka’s 2019 Changemaker campaign, and invited to meet Michelle Obama at her first Canadian speaking engagement in 2017.
Aside from being an entertainer, Morales has found a passion for giving back, partnering with a number of community organizations to offer free programming for youth across Canada. He focuses on providing equal opportunity to underserved communities lacking access to industry mentorship.
Quincy has been an Artist on the Unity Roster for many years, and works with the organization to help young people build resilience through hip hop.
Tremayne is a Toronto hip-hop artist, known for his prolific performances and universally respected for his visceral songwriting. Born and raised in the suburb of Brampton, Tremayne began his career under the moniker T-Mayne, a nod to his birth name. Floating somewhere between the poetic, introspection of classic Chicago hip hop, and the contemporary trap soundwaves of New Toronto, Tremayne explores the interpersonal workings of the artist mind, the bleeding heart and the human experience.
His pursuit of a career in music has taken him across the globe from London, New York, Montreal, Germany to performing at Atlanta hip hop festival, A3C. He and his collective, StayOutLate, are leaving an imprint on the entertainment industry.
