Hellnback is ready to launch some new music this month. The award-winning hip hop artist launches his latest album, #Fourteen91, on May 18 at X-Cues with a little help from a long list of friends. Hailing from the Samson Cree Nation, Hellnback is no stranger to the music scene. Earning nods as co-founder of Warparty and as part of acclaimed hip hop collective Team Rezofficial, Hellnback picked up an Indigenous Music Award in 2015 in recognition for his contribution to music and community while his album #FOE=Family Over Everything also won him new fans. He has collaborated with artists such as A Tribe Called Red, and most recently DJ Shub and Snotty Nose Rez Kids, and Mob Bounce. He'll close out the month back on the X-Cues stage on May 31 for the Decipher showcase alongside Kenny Murkz, Lavi$h, MACHINA II, and Malcolm-Jay. We've got a special sneak peek at the new album with this week's featutred track, "The Spirit" featuring Mob Bounce and produced by David Strickland. Press play, check out the full album, head over to his new website, and don't miss Hellnback live.
