More than just a small town rapper from Surrey, British Columbia, Merkules has established himself as one of Canada’s rising hip hop stars. Since the age of 16, with the help of a few top tier locals, he began making music, and quickly left his stamp in Vancouver’s hip hop scene. Shirtless in all his glory, Merkules brings something different to the table with his music every time. Although humour plays a huge factor when it comes to his material, he has always offered his fans a wide variety of emotions in his music. Merkules connects with his fans on a personal level every day through various social media platforms. Although he is young, he has created an eccentric character that young people all over the world have come to know and love.
Now at the age of 26, it’s clear that Merkules is nowhere near stopping. With two Western Canadian Music Award nominations, over 130 million views and over 50 million audio streams, and over 500 high energy performances across North America, Europe, and Australia, he doesn’t have any plans of slowing down. In the past two years alone, Merkules has released “Trust Your Gut” (2017) and “Cole” (2018), both highly anticipated albums that have been steadily increasing his loyal fan base. In addition to his recent albums, Merkules is consistently releasing new content through his YouTube channel which features his new music videos, mixtapes and remixes.
