17-year-old Toronto based artist Lil Berete has released his debut mixtape Icebreaker, out now. Written entirely by Lil Berete and including features exclusively from his STN crew from Toronto’s Regent Park, Icebreaker is a brilliant introduction to the area’s breakout star.
With Lil Berete’s distinctive voice, raw talent, dynamic flow and a measured duality of confidence and vulnerability, it makes sense that Lil Berete cites Akon, T-Pain, and Young Thug as his sonic influences.
Combining his own gritty Toronto-fused slang with the influence of his mother’s music and art from her homeland of Guinea, Berete has quickly created his own unique lane in Toronto’s burgeoning underground rap scene.
With production from new and named producers from all over the globe. Icebreaker is a tremendous debut from an ambitious young artist who has used his adversity as fuel for his fire. Lil Berete proves there can be more than one rap superstar from The 6.
