When Loud became the first Québec MC to play Montreal’s Bell Centre arena in 2019, it signalled a new beginning for the region's hip-hop community. With all praise due to Drake and the OVO crew, Québec no longer had to stand in Toronto’s shadow. This is the sound of the province’s new class of rappers, who mix next-level production, multicultural vibes, and multilingual wordplay. We regularly update this playlist with new tracks.
