Nick Stone (Eden Ward)

Last updated: August 23, 2021

Hello, my name is Eden Ward AKA NICK STONE, and I am from Metepenagiag First Nation. I started writing raps when I was around 13 years old, what got me into hip-hop music was my mom. She used to play a whole bunch of Tupac, Biggie and Eminem when I was little. I recorded my first ever song back when I was 14, I had a blue snowball microphone and an old PC with audacity, which is a free DAW (digital audio workstation). I went on YouTube and downloaded a producers beat which was free for nonprofit and after that day I kept rapping till I was around 15 turning 16. I quit for a year because I didn’t think my music was good enough, but I came back and later found my love for the craft once again. I started practicing, writing, and recording more frequently later found myself at age 17 wanting to continue with my career of being a rapper/music artist.
