Pitt Tha Kid Sets His Mark On The Industry
Written by Live 89FM on December 21, 2020
Pitt Tha Kid. The Canadian hip-hop industry has created a significant amount of opportunities for talented artists who have gone onto make a lane for themselves in what has become a saturated market. Artists like: AR Paisley, Blacka Da Don, Haviah Mighty, Patrik, Nate Husser, Naya Ali and the list goes on.
However, even with the growth observed by many here in Canada, it still feels like some of the hip- hop producers responsible for the music that we all enjoy as well as the main reason the hip hop culture and industry in general is at the forefront of music aren’t getting enough credit. Canadian producer Pitt Tha Kid is a perfect example of a producer who has yet to receive his flowers.
Pitt Tha Kid has quietly become one of the most sought after Canadian producers working on both sides of the border He’s produced records for artists like Jaden Smith, Young Thug, 2 Chainz, Lloyd Banks, Justin Rarri, Gunna, Frijo, Doe Boy, YNW Melly NAV, 24hrs, and also collaborated with Atlanta producer Mike WiLL Made-It and as of recent produced Creatures for the late Pop Smokes debut album Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon, which has been certified 2x platinum in the United States and was named the 2nd best selling album of the year.
Pitt is now one of the few independent producers from the city of Toronto to break into both the Canadian and American music industry on his own terms, while seeing very little support or recognition from the hip-hop community in Canada. None of that seems to bother Pitt as he is quoted telling Remi of Hip-Hop Canada “I feel like I’ve been the underdog my whole career and even though a lot of people did believe in me at the beginning, I still hold onto that feeling of being an underdog and having a lot to prove.”
