Interview: Madchild at Santos Party House

The evolution of Madchild.



fter spending a couple of years battling personal demons, Madchild took his life back with the help of his family, friends and the unwavering support of his fans. Like only a determined man can, the Vancouver based rapper renounced his former lifestyle and found solace in the arms of his music. Bunkering down in his home studio secluded from the outside world, like he mentions embarking on for his upcoming release, he enjoyed a creative rebirth by crafting some of the best verses of his entire career. As we’ve learned, in addition to his creative rebirth, Madchild is now giving back to his community. He has started speaking at local high schools in British Columbia and to youth groups about perils of gang violence and drug addiction in Canada, which has helped inspire youth to make positive lifestyle choices.


Now, he’s more comfortable in his skin than he’s ever been and if you’re watching, you would agree. Last Wednesday, he traveled to New York City with Swollen Members, Slaine and Super Villain to perform at Santos Party House. The 38-year-old rapper details the significance of his face tattoos in which he discloses one as a lifelong commitment to the Battle Axe Warriors, making an album in fourteen days, his ‘masterpiece’ and more.
