Bio
In this music industry there are those who wait for opportunities to come along, & there are others who go out and get it. Andre Michael Douglas, better known by the stage name High Stakes, Born February 20th, 1985, in Port Of Spain Trinidad. Is a Canadian Rapper, entrepreneur who doesn’t wait for hand outs, in this independent do it yourself driven industry.

A fan of rap music High Stakes musical following began at the age of 14. However, he was always a tremendous athlete; he began playing football at the same age. His older brother and uncle were both DJ's, one in Toronto and the other in Brooklyn New York. He always had an interest in music, playing the saxophone in elementary school and drums in High school. He later attended IADT private college to further enhance his musical aspiration in the Sound Technology program. Where he walks away with a great deal of knowledge musically, High Stakes is inspired by artist such as Snoop Dogg, Tupac Shakur, Nas, Ice cube, Guru and many more…

Growing up listening to many genres of music, inspired the skillful young rapper, the art of storytelling & coming up with his own unique flow, with a powerful delivery separates his style from the rest, and gives him the edge and versatility that he brings to the rap game. High Stakes represents the people, the hustle, being able to come from nothing to something is what high stakes is all about.
He had to be a man at an early age due to the absents of his parents, At the age of ten Stakes and his older brother both arrived in Toronto, reuniting with their single parent mother who is a major inspiration in the young artist life & career.

At a term in his life High Stakes was losing family and friends, almost losing his own life in a rollover accident driving home at 3am Nov 10, 2008 on a winter night. Overcoming these obstacles, High Stakes automatically had a sense of urgency. It really put the talented rapper's life into perspective.
"Life is like a game we gotta play to win", that winning mentality is an advantage that he takes with him on his journey.

High Stakes has collaborated & currently collaborating with numerous local Toronto artists. Cashtown Records has played a role in the production, and recordings of numerous High Stakes albums. High Stakes is currently working on promoting the High Stakes brand, future mixtapes, and shooting more videos.
