That Orlando/Toronto connect is stronger than ever. One of Canada's best kept secrets is no secret anymore. It wouldn't be right if we didn't give the exclusive on the homie Leondro. We bout to go in!
ACMD: 2016 was a damn good year for Toronto. Looks like 2017 will be another head busser for The 6 as we got my man Leondro on the rise! Yo homie, say wassup to the Apex Coture Kingdom!
LEO: Yessir, hello hello thank you for having me!
ACMD: So tell us a bit about yourself. You came up in Toronto. How did The 6 help you develop your sound? Also wanting to have positive attributes to your music?
LEO: Being a multicultural city, Toronto allowed me to hear different sounds and instruments from different cultures. Which allowed me to be open and make all sorts of music. The music represents my mindset. It may come off positive because that's where I'm at in life right now compared to my early 20's
ACMD: You had a few solid singles to help solidify your place as a new artist. Tell us about those and your successes and nominations. Any Awards?
LEO: I've had nominations for Canadian songwriter of the year, multiple video of the year, new urban artist, best rap single. I'm happy as a artist to know that my music is touching people in such a great way that fans think I deserve an award. That itself is such a blessing!
ACMD: This is what it's all about tho, the new single "Love me so good". Give us all the tea on that one...
LEO: Love me so good is about the ups, the downs, and the love of a real relationship.
ACMD: Congrats on all levels homie... Let's talk about your passion for philanthropy. You work with quite a few organizations to give back. Please break it down for us.
LEO: Growing up, the kids in my building always wanted to be at my house and all for different reasons. I had friends that wanted to be over because they had no love at home. I also had friends that wanted to come over because they had no food at home. No matter the reason, my mother always taught me to be there for people in need. Now that I'm in a position to help on a bigger scale it's only logical to do my part and help these fantastic organizations that make a difference in the world.
ACMD: So what's next? Any tours, albums, new videos or collabs? Y'all got a helluva line up. Haley Smalls, Tory Lanez, Jazz Cartier, Harvey Stripes, Belly, GNA I mean I could go on. Are you lookin to work with some of Toronto's best artist?
LEO: Yessir, we have a great game plan for 2017. You will have to stay tuned into my website or sign up for the news letter to be first to know. I'm always looking to work with any great mind that can co-create an amazing song!
ACMD: Well bro, we wish you all the best in this crazy industry and will continue to follow your career. Remember you are Apex Coture Royalty now so when you drop or do something new, send it to us we will blast it. Thanks for your time and contributions. Let em know what magazine you rockin with!!
LEO: Thank you so much for allowing me to be on this amazing platform! This was a great experience, and you best believe we shall be talking soon. It's your boy Leondro rocking out with one of the hottest in the south Apex Coture Magazine!
