As An Artist, It’s Hard To Use Your Platform To Create A Positive Image. Meet Mario Canon, Whose Music Is Meant To Do So While Bridging The Generational Gaps
Mario Canon from Springfield, Illinois, uses his music to reflect on the times while also bridging generational gaps. He is well known for featuring on television shows like ‘Chicago PD’ and ‘Empire’, in which he stars as Charlie Dupree. He has worked with legendary artists like Chicago’s Twista, who featured in his ‘Play to Win’ track, and viral Rap artist Montana of 300, who featured in ‘More of Us .’ They have contributed to his growth as an artist. On his acting side, he has rubbed elbows with Terrence Howard, Taraji p. Henson, and Trai Byers, who told him to get prepared because he would soon be in a position like his.
Although Mario Canon admits to having grown in an affluent neighbourhood, he is no stranger to giving back to the community. He is fond of interacting with inner-city’s youths, encouraging them, and sharing his story. He is an artist who uses his platform to create a positive image rather than flaunt materialistic things to gain clout.
