Artistically, Mouraine strikes a trifecta of swagger, buoyancy and humility in his music and demeanor. If his beaming grin doesn’t instantly pull you in, his charisma and cadence definitely will. Seeking asylum from his home country with his mother and siblings at the age of 10, unable to speak a word of English, Mouraine turned to watching hip hop music videos and poetry, which ultimately became his teacher and solace.Deeply inspired by the way his favorite rappers could energize and demand the attention of a crowd, Mouraine began writing and recording music, motivated on raising the next generation of dreamers, creators and policymakers.
Since making his solo debut in 2017 with his mixtape Cold Mornings 2, he’s since shared stages with Mac Miller, J.Cole, T-Pain, Big Sean, Pusha T, Classified, and many others; still, he retains a humble underdog attitude throughout. His recent Bigger Dreams EP, that sought praise from Complex, The Source, CBC, Earmilk, Exclaim!, and many more, set the stage for Mouraine’s next anticipated chapter, following collaborations with WCMA Producers of the Year, Deadmen (Begonia, Ashleigh Ball, Royal Canoe), promotional features with Footlocker, Toronto Raptors games and other major sporting events across the country he now calls home, Mouraine is on the cusp of an enduring legacy. His sights are set high and he’ll settle for nothing but GOLD.
