First came Kareem Blake. Then came Choclair. Now meet Blake Savage. The man from Toronto, most often referred to as Choclair, has come up with a third persona in his album due out March 5, “The Memoirs of Blake Savage.” The Juno-Awards winning artist enlisted many of his T-Dot friends to help him out with the tracks, including Baby Blue Soundcrew, Kardinal Offishall, Saukrates, Solitair, Ro Dolla and Jully Black.
Choclair also deals with issues that he didn’t touch on in 1997′s “What It Takes” or 1999′s “Ice Cold,” such as the use of marijuana. The track “When I’m High” shows what he does in his private life. “‘When I’m High’ is just talking about things that I do and that I see,” he says. But you don’t need to get high to have fun, as illustrated in his first single off the record, “Light It Up.” “That song is just about having a good time, just a natural high.”
Choclair sat down with andPOP in Toronto to discuss the new album, getting high, touring, and more.
