Imagine you just won a very unexpected Juno award and it’s Saturday night, what is your first choice of drink?
If you missed our original behind the scenes coverage of the Juno Awards I’d suggest you take it in. You will appreciate the bonus cuts that I’ll be releasing in the coming week. The first video is from my interview with Tona and Adam Bomb they take us to the exact moment when their names were announced as the winners of the Rap Recording of the Year. They share if winning the Juno Awards does anything for their motivation and Tona explains what his favourite drink Tiger Blood consists of and yes, what their choice of drink would be.

I’m proud to present our second interview with the homie Big Sean! The first interview was four years ago in Toronto and this time around we caught up with him in London during his Canadian Tour. Big Sean speaks on the times he was full of fear and impatience coming up as an artist and why he feels the journey is just as important as the prize. Big Sean also shared his excitement of performing at this years OVO Fest and how he measures success. The interview ended off with a question if Big Sean had $100 million would he still be hungry as an artist? What do you think? Would you?
