one of Quebec’s most compelling live acts Erik Leijon, Montreal Gazette

Dead Obies are quite simply the best hip hop that’s ever existed in Quebec, period. I just don’t think there’s anyone as good as them. VNCE, the beat-maker of the Dead Obies, is as good as any beat-maker in the world. Laurent Saulnier, FrancoFolies de Montréal

un concert tendu, d’une redoutable précision, où la parole circulait entre les cinq MC comme un ballon diabolique sur un playground de basket.

AboutDead Obies

Dead Obies (4 rappers and 1 producer) released their critically-acclaimed debut album, Montréal $ud, in November 2013. The undeniable success of their sophomore effort, Gesamtkunstwerk (2016), was a real stepping stone for Dead Obies, who performed a string of sold-out gigs across Quebec. Following the highly publicized opening concert of the 2016 FrancoFolies de Montréal, the band opened for Kendrick Lamar on the Plains of Abraham (Festival d'été de Québec), and for French rapper Georgio at the Olympia de Paris. Dead Obies is currently working on their third album to be released in winter 2019.

After releasing the Euro-braggadocio anthem Monnaie last October (recorded at Grande Ville Studio in Paris), Dead Obies is back with a new ear worm called BREAK. The single is accompanied by a video directed by Martin C. Pariseau, in which we find the group enjoying a writing retreat in rural Quebec. The video immortalizes the five members’ day-to-day life while they go through the creative process for their upcoming album.

BREAK is the first in a mini series of singles that Dead Obies will unleash before releasing their third full-length in winter 2019. The album follows Gesamtkunstwerk (2016), a real stepping stone for the band who went on to perform a string of sold-out shows across Quebec and tour Europe a couple of times. BREAK also marks the beginning of a new era for the Polaris Long-Listed group since the recent departure of Yes Mccan, who will be focusing on his solo career.

The four MCs Snail Kid, 20some, Joe Rocca and OG, along with producer VNCE CARTER, have been working on new material for the past few months. They will be back on stage several times this summer, starting this Friday, May 18th in Gatineau and Sunday, May 20th at the Santa Teresa festival.

Biography

Dead Obies (four rappers and one producer) released their critically-acclaimed debut album, Montréal $ud, in November 2013 via Bonsound. Long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize, the record helped place the group at the forefront of Quebec's rap scene. The album was also nominated at L'Autre Gala de l’ADISQ in 2014 for Hip-Hop Album of the Year and Critics' Choice Album of the Year.

After large-scale shows, a European tour, the mixtape Collation Vol. 2 - Limon Verde: La Experiencia, the Montréal $ud book and the animated web series 4:20 avec Dead Obies, the band released their sophomore effort, Gesamtkunstwerk, on March 4th, 2016. Recorded partially in studio and partially in front of a live audience during a series of three sold-out concerts at Phi Centre, Gesamtkunstwerk was listed on the Polaris Prize Long List. The single Where They @ has since garnered over 2.5 million streams on Spotify.

The undeniable success of their sophomore effort, Gesamtkunstwerk, was a real stepping stone for Dead Obies, who performed a string of sold-out gigs across Quebec. Following the highly publicized opening concert of the 2016 FrancoFolies de Montréal, the band opened for Kendrick Lamar on the Plains of Abraham (Festival d'été de Québec), and for French rapper Georgio at the Olympia de Paris. Their tour culminated on September 14th, 2017 at Montreal's MTELUS with a sold-out, interactive and immersive concert. Dead Obies is currently working on their third album to be released in winter 2019.
