I saw D-sisive at the Toronto Freedom Festival earlier this year when I was there covering the event for DOPEfm. Canadian hip-hop legend Saukrates was performing and he brought D-sisive out on stage with him. They have a song together, “Wednesday, the remix” that will be appearing on the new Saukrates album “Season One” and they performed it live on the main stage.
I wanted to talk about D-sisive’s dad. He mentions him in a quite a few songs. ‘Nobody with a Notepad’ ends with the lyric “forever standing in the shadow of my old man,’ which leads right into ‘Father,’ which is a song about the loss of his father. In that song, D-sisive mentions that his father has said, “I don’t know a thing about rap but I know that I like this.” And then D-sisive says, “Listening to my songs on repeat was his way of saying, ‘That’s my boy’ from the bleachers.”
“My dad was really supportive of my music. I wasn’t the typical athletic son at all, and I know he kind of always wanted that son. I wasn’t really able to provide him with that, but he was a huge fan of my music. He didn’t really like hip-hop music that much but he stuck it out for me. It’s really awesome having him be as supportive as he is.”
