Biography

Sampson first emerged in the early 2000s as a member of the group Rhythmicru, who released several independent albums which were popular in the Toronto hip hop scene.[1] Their biggest hit was a song called "The Facts of War" about George Bush and the war in Iraq. It also appears as a track on Sampson’s self-titled debut.[2]

After Rhythmicru split up, Sampson started a solo career.[3] He then joined forces with some of Canada's most prominent hip hop producers, including Classified and DJ Kemo of The Rascalz and opened for such acts as Guru from Gang Starr, Maestro Fresh-Wes, The Hilltop Hoods, Eyedea & Abilities, Non Phixion, and Scratch from The Roots.[4] He has also performed on the Van's Warped Tour, as well as at NXNE.[5] Sampson released his first full-length album, Cale Sampson in 2009 and he is currently working on his second album.[6]

Critical acclaim

Sampson’s debut solo album, Cale Sampson received highly positive reviews from the critics and peaked on both the Earshot and ChartAttack charts as the #3 most played hip hop album on Canadian college radio.[7] In 2009, Cale Sampson was also named “Best Songwriter of the Year” by Now Magazine for their annual “Best of T.O.” edition.[8]

Work outside of music

In his youth, Sampson had a small acting role opposite Vince Vaughn in the feature film A Cool, Dry Place. He had no acting experience prior to taking this role. Sampson tried out as an extra after being handed a flyer in his school. Despite his lack of previous experience, he was given the role of a high school basketball player named “Peter”.[9]
