A vital emcee hailing from East Preston, MAJE blends bravado, beauty and civic pride with a keen ear for detail. Bar by bar, his narratives unfold with a butter-smooth inflection, shedding light into the folded corners of emotion. In the past two years, MAJE scooped up top prize in the Viola Desmond Songwriting Competition, received a nod for African Nova Scotian Music Association Rising Star and found himself a semi-finalist in CBC’s Searchlight contest. Using this momentum brilliantly, MAJE dropped Outhome in late 2016, a meditative short film that subtly recalibrates the East Coast hip-hop identity.
