“Figa”, born Liam Mojique Legault, from a young age has always aspired to
be an artist. Being raised in an artist orientated co-op complex, “Helen’s
Court”, which spawned popular rock group “DOA”; it seems as though his
talents were magnified by his encouraging surroundings. The turmoil and
internal struggle of an absentee Father was balanced by a supportive female
role model being his mother. On his own at the early age of 16, Figa
tranformed his malevolant past with his family into ammunitition and the
unbreakable motivation to become the next new hot artist out of Canada.
Being a very business minded individual, Figa has been perfecting his craft
for nearly a decade before realeasing himself, and his music publicly.
Although slightly hard surfaced, Figa has a very amicable personality and
has embraced hip hop more so as an artistic lifestyle as opposed to a
profitable hobby. You’ll find that his orginality is uncomparable to other
mainstream artists due to his almost eccentric personality combined with
his abstract word play and punchlines. Currently, he is concluding his
first mixtape DVD titled “It’s FIGA 2.0”, alongside of two other untitled
mixtapes set to be released in the winter 2012. His first video release
titled “15 minutes of Fame”, also gives Figa a chance to expose his other
artistic abilities as a film producer and director. This upcoming artist is
sure to be the truth and next dynasty in Canadian hip hop. Stay tuned and
witness the growth of a rising star.
