444-0049: DEAR-GOD - "Half a Man""

"Tears on the TTC..."

Brampton’s favourite son DEAR-GOD is back with his first new music in two years. After rounds with Terrible Records and Dine Alone Records, he signed with us for the release of a new EP, slated for Fall 2024. 

“Half a Man (Tears on the TTC)” sees DG link up with Lecx Stacy on production and get back to expressing his complex and aggressive thoughts in frustrated raps over angular production.

“I wrote Half a Man after a hard year in which I had lost a friend,” he explains. “It’s a song about mourning and struggling to rebuild myself in the face of adversity. It’s an emotional and personal song that I made for myself.”
 
Through the ups and downs, DEAR-GOD remains one of Canada’s most unique sounding artists. In the five years since the project started there are several artists from Brampton that have been inspired and introduced by DEAR-GOD starting to make their own waves including peers DoFlame, Dear Evangeline and Mile End.
