Toronto rapper Pilla B recently released his EP, Taijitu, which symbolizes his sense of personal balance. The project’s title aims to highlight his personal career and life goals which ultimately illuminate the yin and yang concept, while possessing superior creativity being pushed by a continuous championship mindset. Taijitu features Toronto producers Harley Arsenault, Burd & Keyz, Reaper Beatz, and Chicago’s Louis Laurentt.
Just recently, Pilla released a new video for “Scholarships,” adding to a growing portfolio of animated videos powered by Andre Barnwell (and others). Pilla B’s team also informed us that we should expect follow up videos for “Switching Up” and “Ain’t Worried,” in collaboration with director Jake Fair.
“Taijutu represents the little bit of good in the bad and the little bit of bad in the good,” the Rexdale artist explained.
“This is where I feel like I live and what keeps me balanced. Without the little bit of bad in the good people out here would take me for a joke. Without the little bit of good in the bad we wouldn’t have anything to bring us back once we unravel.”
On the inspiration behind “Scholarships,” Pilla tells us: “My cousin Sean Miller Moore is hoopin on a full academic scholarship at GCU – we talk everyday so I was inspired to create this record. That and the fact that if rap scholarships were being given out I would have my masters by now.”
