Artist Spotlight: Malicious aka Mr Malish


Artist Introduction

What’s your stage name and where are you from?

Malicious aka Mr Malish from Montreal, Canada.

What’s the story behind your stage name?

Malicious was something my older cousin would call me when I was younger and it stuck with me as my rhyme style was witty, unpredictable, and dark for whom the shoe fit.

Describe your musical journey in three sentences.

A journey. Passion and perseverance on an unpaved path. Should be a Netflix movie. (Trust me the YouTube rabbit hole is crazy)


Fan Engagement

Share an interesting experience you had while creating your latest track.

Sometimes I dip into my artist bag and want to try different styles. On my latest release “UNBOTHERED” I put all that aside and said sometimes people just want bars. Learn to say what you want them to hear in a way they haven’t heard it before.

What message do you want to convey through your music?

At this stage, I’m looking to share what I’ve learned over the years. Life lessons through lyrics.


Behind the Music

Tell us about a challenge you faced during production and how you overcame it.

When I’m making the beat and rhyming the hardest part is listening for the vibe and not listening for what needs to be tweaked. Is the kick loud enough? Is the beat missing anything or does it have too much? It’s hard to separate from the process and just enjoy.

If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be and why?

Good question, it really depends on the vibe & beat selection. I like artists like Ransom, Chance, Jadakiss.


Future Aspirations

Where do you see your music taking you in the next year?

I can see myself working more with Onyx’s label “100MAD” with whom I’ve already had a chance to release some joints under so I’d say look out for that.

What’s the next big step for you as an artist?

Expansion, expansion, expansion. With a million other artists out there named Malicious or some sort of variant, I’m looking to break away from the pack so you know who you’re getting when searching the name.
