Meet the man Drake credits for coining the term "The 6"

REVOLT catches up with Toronto rapper Jimmy Prime, before his first-ever show in NYC.

Jimmy Prime doesn't like the reputation Toronto gets. This idea that there's competition between its native sons.

"To me, it's the greatest place on Earth. It's like everybody here is cool; it's all love," the Prime Boys rapper told REVOLT. "It's just so many different people here that I f-ck with."

Jimmy wanted to focus on the positive energy and give artists from the city a reason to be proud. So he and Oliver North came up with the term The 6, and as we know, Drake took notice. So REVOLT caught up with the Full Circle collective emcee before his first-ever concert in New York City to learn more.
