N1N3 Reflects on a Dark Heart with "LoveSick"



Toronto Hip-hop artist N1N3, who also goes by K9, discovered his love and natural talent for music and emceeing at the tender age of 3 years old.

Performing at exclusive gigs such as The Canadian National Exhibition and The Marc Eckò in 2005 at the age of 11 where he opened up for Ciara, Nas, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, and Kanye West as well as other well-established artists, he is currently solidifying his presence in Toronto's rising music scene while consistently creating music and working in the studio.

Straight off the release of his four-track project titled, “Dark Heart EP,” this body of work is a true definition of the versatility and creativity that build up the essence of N1N3. Placing our focus on the first song to be heard on the record, we hear the smooth sounds of “LoveSick.” Collaborating with the extraordinary talents of production architect Illuid Haller, we’re offered up a soothing ambiance that washes us over us in one fell swoop.


Chalked full of witty quips and a hefty conveyance of the lyrical dexterity vigorously flowing in the buttery cadences exuded, N1N3 also accompanies the sonic elements with a music video that delves into his well-rounded sense of comedic relief to keep this forward message lighthearted. Dressed to the nines, the various scenes offered up have us completely submerged in his therapy sessions, reminiscent thoughts on past love, and his adoration for bright colors and high-end fashion.


The unique tone that hails from N1N3’s sultry timbres is both tantalizing and prevalent in the juxtaposition utilized. There are countless elements that make up the magnitude of N1N3. “LoveSick,” places us in the hands of his vulnerability as he explores lyrical motifs such as “Somebody I trusted and put all my love in, they made it look easy to leave me and treat me like nothing,” leaving us in the same state of mind he exemplifies.
