[…] our favorite might’ve been this French-Canadian rap group called Dead Obies, whose high-energy set on Saturday afternoon scared us just enough to wake us out of our hangover.
Eric, Sundermann, Noisey / Vice (Vitrine – M pour Montréal )
Their debut album, Montreal $ud, is a brash, confident splicing of solitudes, and not just English and French
Erik Leijon, The Gazette
There is no way you won’t become obsessed with this record.
Darcy MacDonald, CultMTL
This is a special record by a special band and they are just getting started. Quebec is not ready!
DJ Asma, Musicismysanctuary.com
Marc-Antoine Bigras, IX Daily
Bilingual rap troupe Dead Obies were lauded on social media following their Saturday afternoon showcase performance, which means the ROC and beyond might finally be ready to accept a Quebec crew as something other than a cultural novelty. Dead Obies are more than capable of being the band to break the glass ceiling.
Erik Leijon, CultMTL (Vitrine – M pour Montréal)
4 stars (out of 5)
Alain Brunet, La Presse
Franchement impressionnant tout ça, et beaucoup plus que la saveur du mois: les nouveaux princes du rap de la Belle Province. 8/10
Jérémie McEwen, Par la bande
le groupe [...] vient de livrer un album rempli d’urgence, musicalement très actuel.
Philippe Papineau, Le Devoir
L’un des meilleurs albums hip-hop français, euh, anglo, euhm, en fait québécois, at large, que j’ai entendu depuis très longtemps.
Nicolas Tittley, MusiquePlus
Très fascinant […] Mon disque de rap préféré de l’année.
Jean-François Côté, Téléjournal Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean
Dead Obies present their new music video, directed by Martin C. Pariseau (Roméo & Fils), for Do or Die and In America.
Dead Obies have prepared an album sampler to give you a little taste of their upcoming album Montréal $ud, available via Bonsound in digital format on November 12th. All this means that you can hear snippets of each song right now.
