If you know songs like “Blinding Lights” or “Earned It” by The Weeknd, you’re already familiar with Canadian rapper and producer Belly. He’s been making music for almost two decades, and in that time he’s earned a Juno Award, SOCAN songwriter of the year, Grammy nominations and an Oscar nod. Now, Belly’s out with a new album, “Mumble Rap 2.”
Belly tells Tom about what it was like growing up in the Ottawa rap scene, his friendship with Jay-Z, the personal stories he writes about on his new album, and how he knew from the start that The Weeknd would make it big.
Filmmaker Mary Harron (American Psycho, I Shot Andy Warhol, Charlie Says) talks to Tom about her latest film, “Daliland,” the difficulty of getting to know who Salvador Dali was, and how filmmaking is about knowing what you want.
Plus, The band Bye Parula tells Tom the story behind “Still Got The Spirit,” which just so happens to be Q’s theme song.
