David Strickland is a Grammy Award winning multidisciplinary artist, producer, engineer, DJ and activist. We discuss his music and visual art influences, how connected Indigenous cultures are to hip-hop and his experience with having his Indian status revoked. David shares what it was like working with Drake and the OVO camp and hip-hop legends like EPMD, Redman, Method Man, Kardinal Offishall, Saukrates and Keith Murray. We also talk about his respect for photographer Ernie Paniccioli, why he thinks it’s important for creatives to not get stagnant and lazy but why it’s also important to slow down.
