Life & Hip Hop Interviews: Peter Jackson

Peter Jackson is an up and coming rapper out of Toronto, Canada who's recent collaborations with well known artists like Joe Budden, Jadakiss, and Talib Kweli have given him a buzz in the streets.

L&HH has linked up with this rising talent for a quick interview. Get to know a little more about Peter below...

Give us a little background on yourself.
I am from Toronto, Ontario about 35 minutes east of the downtown core in a smaller city called Ajax. I got started free styling at parties when I was 16 and just grew up loving music

What sets your work apart from others in your field/genre?
My work ethic, my motivation to win, my music & the fact that I wear my heart of my sleeve when it comes to music and I think it translates very well in my records

How are you able to stay motivated? What continues to inspire you despite negative opinions?
My family keeps me motivated, and the fact that this is the only thing I felt like I was good at growing up so I didn’t see options other then music for me. I don’t hear or see negativity to be honest. Ive never met a hater doing better then me so their opinion holds no weight at all.

Whose music are you bumping?
right now in my truck I got Meeks new tape, DBlock Tape, Drakes Album NWTS, Juelz Santana

What is your view on the state of Hip Hop currently?
overall it's moving at a great speed, it's very commercial it's part of everyday life for a lot of people that you wouldn’t think it would be. In Canada it's at a all time high because of Drake

Your last meal on earth would consist of…
Chicken Parmesan on Mulberry street w/ ravioli & a bottle of rose moet LOL
