Small World packs its 11 tracks with sharp writing and a tight mission statement, all of which is fueled by soulful and funky production from Denver's Late Night Radio. His approach to Boom bap fits Def3 like a glove, whether it's providing a guitar-laden swagger on "S.O.S." or capturing the emotional turmoil of "Carry On." The two make for a great pairing, and hopefully this is just the first of many projects together.

Regina, Saskatchewan native Def3 has seen his fair share of success so far in his career, including the release of 2014’s award-winning LP, WILDLIF3. But with his latest endeavor, Small World, the stakes seem higher, and Def3 is poised to reach a higher level of success.
Def3, a well-established hip-hop artist based out of Regina, Saskatchewan, drops his latest album titled “Small World” produced by Late Night Radio.
DEF3’S Small World is a new age throwback filled with gems.
While many of today’s more well-established artists from Canada are aligned of the Drake, Roy Woods and the Tory Lanez variety, every once in awhile we come across an artist who occupies the lanes more akin to your Kardinal Offishalls, Madchilds and Saukrates.
Def3 is a great combination of charisma and talent,” says rap legend Masta Ace, who makes a guest appearance on the Canadian MC’s new single “Sing,” which MASS APPEAL proudly premieres today. “I brought him out to Europe earlier this year to open up for one of my tours and he held his own in front of crowds who were unaware of his music. He made a lotta fans over there and I know many of those who discovered him from that tour are gonna run out and support this new album. The future is bright for this guy!
