Toronto's Lais Talks '114' EP, Eminem Inspiring Him to Open Up

Born in Pakistan, Lais (a.k.a., in his words, Lais Fuckin' Lavish) moved to Virginia at age three, then on to Toronto as a teenager. Now the atmospheric R&B artist is building the base with a performance at SXSW, a new EP and more.

Get to know Lais in the video above; among other things, you'll hear who he was inspired by and how he learned to use his music to vent his emotions.

Below, check out Lais talking about his February EP 114 and his SXSW gameplan, then listen to 114 beneath that—or be a champ and buy it on iTunes.
