'I’m not making records; I’m making history. Today, my man Tony and I made history with this interview." Maestro Fresh Wes.

Maestro Fresh We is credited as the "Godfather of Canadian Hip Hop, " his debut album, Symphony in Effect, was a certified platinum album. In 2023, Maestro Fresh Wes became the first hip-hop artist inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. His song Let Your Backbone Slide" is the first rap song inducted into the Canadian Songwriters' Hall of Fame.

What did Drake have to say about Maestro Fresh Wes and his influence on him and Canadian music?  What advice did Chuck D of Public Enemy offer?  You'll have to listen to find out.

‘Fresh’ is part of Wes Williams' stage name, and Fresh is how I would describe his perspective and attitude. This story has so many beats. You will take away so much from how Wes approaches life and career. I consider this essential listening for young people as they must diversify and stay relevant throughout their careers.

Stay tuned to the show's end when Mark Beckles, the Vice President of Social Impact and Innovation, returns to Chatter that Matters to discuss First Up by RBC X Music and RBC Future Launch. This is a testament to the role organizations can play in helping Canadian youth find and pursue their path in life.
