It’s no longer a secret that Toronto, Canada continues to be an incubator of raw, unique talent and rapper/songwriter DijahSB is the latest artist taking their brand and story to the world. Inspirational without being preachy, their music is a glimpse into the mind of a Black non-binary artist rapping their way through hope, heartbreak, and breakthroughs. Their fascination with the unguarded creative processes of their influences Kid Cudi and Lupe Fiasco birthed a desire to express themselves freely and unapologetically unique.  

Dijah starts the year off with the release of their new project aptly named 2022 the EP. Dijah highlights a lot of the issues we face in the new world of repetitive lockdowns, skyrocketing real estate prices, and finding their way in both the industry and life. Producers include frequent collaborator Cheap Limousine and a special track to close with famed producer Matisse of the electronic group Keys N Krates. With every release, Dijah moves closer to their dream of living comfortably, happily and being a voice for the LGBTQ+ community.
