There’s been an explosion of talent coming out of Brampton lately, from Roy Woods to Rupi Kaur, not to mention rising rappers Haviah Mighty, K. Forest and Derin Falana. The City of Brampton will aim to capitalize on that with a showcase at NXNE featuring Selena Dhillon, Phab, vaz and our pick, EverythingOShauN. If there’s a Brampton sound, the rapper exemplifies it, with a mix of sing-songy pop hooks, minimalist and downbeat trap production and lyrics that mix emotional vulnerability with songs about partying and the come-up. His latest project is called Almost Everything, and that’s really what he brings.
