Yellowsky

Confirmed: Mar. 20, 2018

from Saskatchewan

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.
