In 2011 JUNK won the MTV hosted “End Of The Weak” national freestyle competition in Toronto, Canada, which secured him a spot in Paris, France to represent Canada, where he took 3rd place in the world. Naturally this gave him his first taste of international appeal. In the same year he would co-create the Vancouver cult followed rap duo Northwest Division with rapper Hungry. Together they independently released 4 albums and 3 mixtapes in the span of 5 years. The albums they made and performed garnered a great deal of local and international attention and even got an article in Vice Magazine. “NWD” managed to make a song & video with Strange Music artist Rittz, tour with Tech N9ne & Krizz Kalico and open for some of raps biggest names: Method Man, Redman, Yelawolf, Machine Gun Kelly, Chef Raekwon, Action Bronson, Mobb Deep, Hopsin, Talib Kweli, Hilltop Hoods, Ghostface Killah and more.
