“Born in November of 2000, Izuku is an artist from Montreal. Exposed to music from childhood, Oumar Ismael Dia (his real name) grew up to the rhythms of zouk, konpa and R&B. At the age of 10, he fell in love with rap when he discovered Drake, Lil Wayne and Gucci Mane on the BET and MusiquePlus channels. Very early on, he began to write his own texts in the form of poems. He owes his passion for the verb and his sustained writing to his French education. His mother, employed at the Cégep de Saint-Laurent, and his father, a university professor in Mali, certainly had something to do with it.” — Learn more on Spotify.

Then comes Goal: A Melody, a first solo EP from the MC and producer which was released in the spring of 2018.

“Haitian vibe, American flow, European textual refinement, Raccoon brings back the diaspora and mixes it in a colorful and powerful shock wave. Despite his innate charisma and smile, which wipe out the caricatural attitude of the intransigent or aggressive rapper, he knows how to be taken seriously by his presence and his unshakable confidence. Whether Raccoon finds himself in battle in front of a crowd or alone in front of his paper, nothing is urgent: everything comes naturally, the chemistry takes place and everything explodes at the right time.” — Learn more on Spotify.
“With millions of streams on digital distribution platforms, Boutot has recently established himself as a heavyweight in Montreal rap. Originally from Gatineau, he began rap influenced by the local group Disstrick11 and American rap. Having lived in the Western Canadian region, he is recognized for having created a bridge allowing several Quebec artists to perform in Alberta! Whether he collaborates with Souldia, Cupidon or Ced Auger, Boutot’s pen is poetic, harsh and touching. We bet that his collaborative album with Cupidon as well as his 4th album in construction will be able to carve out an important place in the playlist of Quebec rap fans!” — Learn more on Spotify.
