Death of A Rapper is Fresh IE’s 10th commercial album and the most personal project released by the Two Grammy Nominated Canadian rapper. All of the songs on DOA come from the experience of a man who has overcome multiple struggles and challenges as a full time artist. Many of the struggles and challenges coming from working as a full time artist in Canada that started to pay a toll on his personal life.

- 1 RAP/HIP HOP ALBUM OF THE YEAR
- 2 RAP/HIP HOP SONG OF THE YEAR: ‘Vanity’ and ‘White Flag’
