Amanda Seales Calls Out Pressa Over U.S.A Culture Comment

SOCIAL MEDIA TRENDS - Keisha Wray Article


Pressa gained notoriety in the city of Toronto a few years ago, but has crossed over to United States hip hop scene in the last year.

The hip hop artist who originally hails  from the Jane and Finch region of Toronto, made his first waves in the city with the song “Wass Gang” that featured Robin Banks, GD, and FB. He would catch the attention of the likes of Tory Lanez and then later Drake with singles such as Deadmihanna and Canada Goose.

The Toronto rapper would create a single called “Attachments,” which originally featured Taliban Glizzy. The song would go to the next level when Coi Leray would be added to the song as a remix. Coi Leray would also aid Pressa with the visuals and from that point on, the two rappers would be seen together more on a constant basis until they would officially become a couple.

Currently, the “Attachments” remix with Leray is Pressa’s biggest hit and sits at 6.2 million views on YouTube. The original is at 2.6 million but has more listens on Spotify where it is his top song. Garner Express (Deluxe) is out now on Spotify and Apple Music.


Pressa would appear on The Breakfast Club which is a rare feat for Canadian hip hop artists. He was on his media promotion hustle to promote the deluxe version of his project Gardner Express. He made it known that he was already a big f***ing deal before breaking in the American music scene. 

Coi Leray showed her love for the rapper recently on social media. “Pressa is a Filipino & Jamaican Canadian man. Yes he’s a pretty boy and has manners but don’t get it twisted !!!!” the daughter of Benzino wrote on Twitter on Wednesday, November 10. “His beautiful brown skin, and long Asian hair might tickle y’all feathers but try it h*e.”


The comments from some fans would cause Pressa to comment, but his reaction only led to more problems.
