Built to Last is the fifth studio album by Canadian rapper Maestro, released December 9, 1998 on Attic Records. It was his first album released exclusively in Canada. Before its release, he shortened his alias Maestro Fresh-Wes to simply "Maestro". Singles from the album include "Stick to Your Vision" and "416/905 (T.O. Party Anthem)". It was nominated for Best Rap Recording at the 1999 Juno Awards.

Background

After living in Brooklyn, New York for most of the 1990s, Maestro moved back to Toronto in 1997.[1][2] Although his attempt at commercial success in the U.S. was a failure, he worked on a comeback album with local hip hop and R&B artists. The first single, "Stick to Your Vision", became Maestro's biggest hit since "Let Your Backbone Slide" was released nine years prior. It reached the top 20 on the Canadian Singles Chart.[3]
