Montreal-based Ethiopian rapper Naya Ali burst onto the Canadian Hip-Hop scene in 2017 and does not hide her international ambitions. Quickly noticed for her flamboyant personality and unparalleled flow, the artist is able to transport us from scathing world sometimes dark, sometimes quieter, but always uncompromising.
Since the release of her first EP “Higher Self”, the emerging artist has drawn looks and attention from several media and some major hip-hop players, even abroad. With the release of the first part of her debut album “Godspeed: Baptism (prelude)” in March 2020, Naya Ali is once again making great fuss and proving that she has nothing to envy American household names.
Patience… the second part of the album is expected in Autumn 2021.
Rymz and his carreer have been around Quebec’s hip-hop scene for more than ten years now. Winner of the Prix du public at the Gala de l’ADISQ 2018, Rymz collects success year after year with his poetic, yet agressive style. His huge concert on Bell’s Francofolies de Montréal stage back in june 2017 in front of more than 20,000 people was one of the climax moments of his carreer, among his performances at Osheaga, the FEQ, Metro Metro, BeachClub, FME and at M pour Montréal, where his show sold out in november 2016.
One of Quebec’s rap legends is finally back after a few quiet years. Imposs litteraly contributed to the creation of the niche and the style of Montreal’s new rap wave.
