A lot has transpired since Canon dropped Loose Canon Vol. 2 in 2014. He got married. He survived a life-threatening accident, and he was challenged to take his music to new heights and new audiences. For the release of Canon’s Loose Canon Vol. 3 on Reflection Music Group, the Chicago-bred/Atlanta-based rapper reemerges with a new perspective on life, art, and faith. Canon first gained notoriety honing his chops as a hypeman for Lecrae, who later featured him on his Rehab: The Overdose project. A member of the 116 Clique, Canon released his debut mixtape, The Great Investment, in 2009. In 2011, he dropped his critically acclaimed mixtape, Blind World, and signed to Derek Minor’s Reflection Music Group. In 2012, he released the first volume of his Loose Canon EP series and made his debut on the Billboard 200 chart. He has continued to find chart success with subsequent sets, his first official album, Mad Haven, and 2014’s Loose Canon Vol. 2.
