Pressa dream as a child has always been clear and which was to make it to Hollywood and that he did.
Born Quinton Armani Gardner, professionally known as Pressa, is a rapper and songwriter from Toronto. He grew up in an area known as Driftwood that’s located in the Jane and Finch neighbourhood.
Pressa lived a wild life in his earlier years. Growing up in a low income community forced Pressa to be in the streets. He had several runnings with the law with his last incident almost costing him his career. Pressa successfully beat his case and was brought on the Boy Meets World tour with Drake. Since then Pressa had been focused on his craft and career leaving his old life behind him.
After gaining popularity with hit songs like Deadmihana, Wass Gang Novacane and Canada Goose featuring Canada’s own Tory Lanez, Pressa decided it was best for him to move to Los Angeles where he now resides to focus on his goals and pursue his dreams. Though he resides in L.A, Pressa does come back home pretty often. Pressa admit that he does miss his family and friends when he’s in L.A, he also misses the food here in Toronto which he claims is the best in the world.
Since then Pressa has went on to release several singles and 4 projects with his latest being The Gardner Express, a play on the name of our popular highway the Gardiner Expressway, that takes you to downtown Toronto. His hard work has earned him 4 Juno nominations. Pressa has been networking making the necessary moves he needs to make to achieve his goals.
