Hiphop artist Madchild kicks off a tour in support of his album Lawn Mower Man Dec. 14 at the Wolf Bar

Hiphop artist Madchild kicks off a province-wide tour in support of his sophomore album “Lawn Mower Man” in Maple Ridge.

Riding a wave of success with his latest opus debuting at No. 2 on the Canadian Billboard Top 200 charts, Madchild is sharply focused on creating captivating hip-hop.

After spending a couple years battling personal demons, Madchild took his life back with the help of his family friends and the unwavering support of his fans.

The Swollen Members alumni renounced his former lifestyle and found solace in the arms of his music.

Bunkering down in his home studio secluded from the outside world, Madchild has enjoyed a creative rebirth by crafting some of the best verses of his entire career.

His hard work was rewarded with the highest chart position of his career as his debut album “Dope Sick” debuted at No. 3 on the Canadian Billboard Top 200 and No. 7 on the U.S. Heatseekers chart.

In addition to his creative rebirth, Madchild is now giving back to his community as he has started speaking at local high schools in British Columbia and to youth groups about perils of gang violence and drug addiction in Canada, which has helped inspire youth to make positive lifestyle choices.

• Madchild headlines a show with  La Coka Nostra on Saturday, Dec. 14 at the Wolf Bar, 22336 Lougheed Hwy. Info:
