Toronto Rapper Pressa Debuts His Major Label EP, Gardner Express

Sony Music Canada’s Pressa releases his major label debut EP, Gardner Express. The title of the seven-track project is a play on words referencing Pressa’s last name (Gardner) and the Gardiner Expressway, a major highway running through the downtown core of his hometown, Toronto. In the same vein as the Gardiner Expressway, Pressa’s music acts as a lifeline and main artery in the city, and no matter where Pressa resides he will always represent the streets of Toronto.

In celebration of the project, Pressa announced a cinematic, livestream event for fans, taking place Wednesday, December 16th at 10pm ET/7pm PT at Happin.App. Happin.App is a ground-breaking virtual concert app that allows fans around the world to interact with their favorite artists directly for  the ultimate livestream experience. All attendees of this cinematic livestream will have access to a live Q+A with Pressa after the performance. VIP packages are also available and include a variety of exclusive opportunities such as limited merch items, virtual meet and greets or a private smoke session with Pressa.

Gardner Express features previously released tracks, “OTM,” “96 Freestyle,” and “Head Tap” featuring  Brooklyn drill rappers, Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow. The trifecta of Pressa, with Sleepy Hallow and Sheff G landed the track an Apple Beats 1 premiere with Ebro Darden, and the three songs culminated in 10.5M global streams worldwide, to date. Reigniting Pressa’s fanbase in North America and the U.K., the music garnered attention from esteemed hip-hop outlet ComplexHotNewHipHopRapCaviar, Rolling Loud’s Twitch series Loud Gaming, and the NBA Memes official Instagram account, for a special halftime interview that took place during the 2020 NBA Playoffs.

Pressa continues his sizzling hot streak of collaborations with the biggest rising stars in the genre, with  “Dracula” ft. Flipp Dinero, “Attachments” ft. Taliban Glizzy and “Blackberry Zap” ft. Jackboy. “Blackberry  Zap” is a departure from the hard, street tracks Pressa is known for, but still feels authentic by meshing  both rappers’ melodic rap style with Jackboy’s southern Florida charm. The EP rounds out with “Ouija  Board” featuring U.K. hip-hop collective, D-Block Europe.
