I’ve been a fan of Infinite since I first heard his solo work in the late 90s. Â I was only just getting in to rap in 95 when Ghetto Concept, his previous collaborative project, was releasing their first stuff – I had only really heard of mainstream artists, and almost no Canadian rappers were on my radar. Â Then in 99 I think, I began listening to a lot of Toronto rappers – The Rascalz, Choclair, and Kardinal to name a few. Â While I was watching Much Music one day, a video came on that really interested me. Â The rapper, Infinite, had won several Video awards and more than one Juno they said. Â I looked in to his work further and found that the song ‘Take a Look’ I was listening to was actually a second single following the hugely successful ‘Gotta Get Mine’.
If you watch the video interview of Infinite by Stolen From Africa, he perhaps sheds some light on why he hasn’t released any new music since then. Â He also suggests that we may be seeing something in 2009, but I haven’t seen any press releases. Â I hope to hear more, because Infinite is a very talented lyricist.
