A spread eagle across his chest that matches his gold chain, Night Lovell sits relaxed on the couch towards the back. The young Ottawa artist is one of a few really pushing the scene forward for his city. His energy is raw and youthful, and his drive is focused. Inspired by the one man that’s taken his country to a whole new stratosphere, Night Lovell has similar aspiration in carrying the torch for his country.
“Drake is a huge inspiration based on the fact that Canada's an underdog in the rap game. He's on top and he's from Canada, that just puts inspiration in everyone, whether you're from Toronto, Montreal or Ottawa. I'm trying to do the same thing he's doing, but for Ottawa first. Drake's a legend, he did it for the whole rap game and he's from an underdog country. I love Drake.”
His genre-bending work comes from being inspired by his peers, those that have been making waves in unique ways for the last few years. "I feel like Lil Peep is a legend because of what he brought to the game, he mixed the emo and the punk sh*t with rap, and that opened a lot of doors to people. He was a f*cking legend, I talked to him a few times. Rest in peace Lil Peep, he will live on forever, there's influence of his sh*t in everyone's music.”
