Past song of the week / August 2015

"BTBB feat. LightningCloud"

From the album #FOE = Family Over Everything

Featured track, available from August 20 to August 28

Hellnback is back. The lyricist and rapper (aka Karmen Omeosoo), a veteran of venerable hip hop outfits like War Party and JUNO-nominee Team Rezofficial  and sometimes A Tribe Called Red collaborator, has been turning heads with the release of his latest recording, #FOE = Family Over Everything. The album has already landed two nods for the upcoming Indigenous Music Awards, including Best Rap/Hip Hop CD, and Noisey has just premiered his new video for "BTBB" along with a indepth profile and Q+A. Winnipeg audiences have a chance to catch Hellnback in action during the 7th annual Aboriginal Music Week festivities when he hits the stage at The Good Will on August 22 for the Closing Night Party, along with Tall Pall, Mariame, Boogey the Beat, and T-Rhyme. Next month, he'll be at the Pyramid Cabaret for the Hip Hop Helps fundraiser. "BTBB", which features L.A. hip hop duo LightningCloud, is our featured track this week. Download it, check out his Noisey feature, cheer for him at the IMAs, and do not miss Hellnack live.
