Hailing from the Plains Cree First Nation, Yellowsky (Born Roberto Andres Pooyak) is arguably the most prominent, important First Nations rapper rocking in Canada right now. His massive, bottom end-heavy beats pay homage to the grimy city life of the most classic of hip-hop music while his elastic, malleable delivery harken to the traditions of both classic Jamaican deejaying and more modern MC styles. There's a real rebellious nature that fuels Yellowsky's music. “I was raised by residential school survivors – my late mother and all my aunties. That's where I get my rebel side,” remarks Yellowsky on this rebellious nature. Where a lot of positive hip-hop starts to lose some of its sharpness, Yellowsky is making positive music that still retains an exhilarating edge.
