Corey’s New album – Memoirs Of An Ex-Con
Through the struggle comes great art. A lot of people in my situation, guys locked up, you see something break inside of them. You can see in their eyes… that the hope is gone. I was there, I had my struggles and I feel truly blessed due to the support that I received, I am proud to be the person I am today. I have grown and appreciated having the small things and the opportunity for freedom while celebrating being a better person.
Deep pain and long periods of self reflection followed and from this struggle came Corey’s mixtape, the gripping and emotionally raw lyrics of “Appreciate the Wait”,.” The rhymes flow with the theme of growth, change, overcoming adversity and the discipline needed to live creatively. “Appreciate the Wait” was nominated as “Mixtape of the Year” & “East Coast Rap Album” for the 2015 Canadian Urban Television (CUT) Awards. Corey himself was nominated for “Songwriter of the Year” CUT Awards and “ANS Artist of the Year” 2015 Nova Scotia Music Award. Picture Me Rollin” ft. (Juno Award Winner) JRDN released on Dec 15, 2016 surpassing100,000 streams on Spotify.
