Ramriddlz Believes "Every Kid Tries to Sell Drugs" (They Do Not)

Rest assured all millennial parents reading this article: all children do not try to sell drugs.

Ramriddlz is a 23-year-old Egyptian-Canadian rapper from Mississauga, Ontario, without a Wikipedia page to his name, whose 2015 single, "Sweeterman," was famously covered by Drake.

On the heels of releasing his new full-length album, Sweeter Dreams, the artist born Ramy Abdel-Rahman sat down for an interview with MONTREALITY, where he discussed a variety of random topics, including the Drake cover ("It's cool that he appreciated my song and shit."), his ultimate fetish ("Some dirtbag shit.") and the "worst thing he's ever put his parents through."

"I remember the first time I got caught with some weed and shit, I was definitely the worst drug dealer," Ramriddlz said. "Every kid tries to, like, sell drugs at one point."
