Canon Defines His Own Path

#DXCLUSIVE: The Nashville-based artist also talks his new album "Home."

Chicago-born rapper Canon doesn’t want to be boxed in by his Christian beliefs. While he’s not the type to shy away from professing his spirituality in his music, he’s also not opposed to working with artists of all types of backgrounds. After all, “good music is good music,” he says.

The 29-year-old first started gaining steam after working with Lecrae on Lecrae’s Rehab: The Overdose in 2011. He’s also teamed up with Derek Minor on songs such as “It’s Not A Game” and “Over Do It.” Since then, he’s been working tirelessly to establish himself as a solo artist..centered-ad {

As he prepares to release his new album Home on Friday (December 7) via Reflection Music Group, HipHopDX caught up with the burgeoning musician to discuss his spiritual path, the message he hopes to get across to fans with his music and why he believes God is always looking over him.
