Born with a strong sense of melody and an irrepressible charm, Pilla B turns haunting realities into catchy bangers. Adept at creating hooks and choruses that stick with his audience, Pilla B’s wit and vocal dexterity booms across speakers and reverberates throughout people. Pilla B is a new and exciting recording artist emerging from Rexdale, Toronto. Rexdale is a complex multicultural landing point for many new Canadians and has a deep musical history.
Pilla B’s sound is at-once gritty, visceral and soulful. A big personality, Pilla B lights up the room he is in. Fun loving and a joker, his personality belies the trauma and often disguises the pain he carries. Unapologetic and brash, his music booms through speakers and tells authentic stories of Toronto street life. Emerging from the city’s underground, his music introduces Pilla B as an artist arrived.
His current project, “1 Year To Date” or "1YTD" is a reflection of Pilla B’s current mind state and progress. Released on May 11th, 2018 - the project marks one year to the day since Pilla B was shot and his best friend and frequent collaborator, Yung Dubz, was murdered next to him. Produced entirely by Harley Arsenault, "1YTD” is Executive Produced by Noah “40” Shebib.
"1YTD" is a public snapshot of Pilla B’s emotional state and feelings over the last year as he has privately worked to grow and progress as both an artist and an individual.

“Following a quick changeover, Public Records signee Pilla B brought humour, dancing and melodic deliveries to the stage, engaging a large part of the room rapping back to him bar-for-bar — it became evident quickly that he was the people's champ.”
