The singer opened up about how his family had little money growing up during an interview with host Matt Galloway on CBC's Metro Morning.   

"It's hard. When you are a kid, you don't know that your parents are going through stuff it seems normal and you don't know about anybody else's life but your own," said Kadillac​.

"I wanted to give back to communities when I got older," he added.
