Listen up to Kardinal Offishall, the Toronto-born rapper and music producer now encouraging a new generation on Canada’s Got Talent. That series, which shoots at the Fallsview Casino OLG Stage in Niagara Falls, Ont., starts a second season Tuesday on Citytv.

On this week’s podcast, Offishall talks about his own experiences as a talent show contestant starting way back when he was not yet even a teenager. Since then, he’s gone on to win several Juno and MMVA awards as he earned the title of “Canada’s hip hop ambassador.”

In recent years, he’s even branched out as an actor, with comic turns on both the first and second seasons of Andrew Phung’s CBC comedy Run The Burbs

Kardi talks about what to expect on the surprising second season of CGT. “No disrespect to the acts that were on the first season,” he says, “but they’ve really really upped the ante. It was really, really dope.”

He also reveals his choice for Favourite All-time TV theme song. It’s a jingle he likes so much he uses it as the ringtone on his phone!
