Dead Obies

As Chairmen of Québec’s rap scene, the six members of Dead Obies are the incarnation of a bold, up-and-coming generation. They broke out in 2013 with Montréal $ud and followed up with 2016's Gesamtkunstwerk, a critical and popular juggernaut that mixed French and English. With little industry support, the SOCAN members topped of the sales charts in Québec, and reached the Top Five in Canada. Dead Obies have a very strong online presence, and totally embrace streaming platforms. They finished as Top Three finalists at the Francouvertes de Montréal in 2013, and have taken part in Francofolies de Montréal, “WordUP! Battles” and “Artbeat” events in Québec. They also won the Urban Music Award at the SOCAN Montréal Gala in 2017.
