Quebec rap finally had its hour of glory on Tuesday on the Plains of Abraham and the star of this historic evening, Loud, took advantage of the carte blanche offered to him by the festival d’été to invite pioneers and current stars of the genre at one big hip hop celebration.

There were at least fifteen of them, including apparently his accomplices Lary Kidd and Ajust, who had accepted his invitation. Pioneers like the members of Muzion and 83 as well as the big names Souldia and Tizzo among many others, it was the long-awaited big keb rap celebration.

Although the Plains weren’t as busy as previous nights, possibly due in part to the violent storm that delayed the site’s dinnertime opening, the many festival-goers who gathered near the stage reserved a triumphant reception for Loud, whose Entrance was filmed behind the scenes in documentary style.

The rapper initially focused on his own material, switching tracks from his new album, No Promise (vendor, #10, shaded corner)and songs that made him the stars of rap keb in the late 2010s (Have to go, New Rich)with the added bonus of a good dose of pyrotechnics.

The heart was definitely at the party. We’ve lost count of the number of times the crowd has responded, in the purest tradition of rap concerts, to a call to “do something” without being asked. Fuck Noise”.

“We’ve been raining, but the rap gods are with us,” said a fiery Loud, who provided a central platform that Adam Levine would have liked to have had during the Maroon 5 concert to meet his fans.

After a ten-track stretch in which Loud alone occupied the space, the show took on the semblance of a lesson in Quebec rap history as the guests began to parade.

Credit where credit is due, keb rap’s designated “sovereign high priest” Sans Pressure was the first to be called upon to offer it enemy territory.

Before their number, the huge screens then recalled the stunt by 83, who interrupted the 2002 ADISQ gala hosted by Guy A. Lepage to call for more recognition for rap.

After a nice nod to Karim Ouellet, this took the form of a Loud Lary Ajust encounter Autumn, the Plains vibrated like never before when Loud swung All women can dance before the veterans of Muzion come to create one of the highlights of the FEQ by revisiting one of the most important songs from here, all genres combined, The vi ti neg.

However, the presence of J. Kyll made us realize that it would have been appropriate to invite other girls to such a rap party, to recognize the ever-growing place they are occupying in the rap keb. We’ll have to think about that next time.

Romeo Elvis: the expected big brother

Before Loud we witnessed Roméo Elvis’ first visit to Quebec and the least we can say is that the Brussels rapper, the big brother of a certain Angèle, was highly anticipated.

Several festival-goers seemed to have moved specifically for this outstanding audience leader, who had evidently done his homework before arriving, as he asked his admirers in the capital if they were “hotter than Montrealers”.

Fostering the rivalry was unnecessary as the spectators on the ground obeyed him with finger and eye as he asked them to create a large circle pit pogo or to replace his sister’s voice — “it must be gross,” he demanded — while I saw.

Even if he had a fresh album under his arm, Everything can happenRoméo Elvis has drawn a little from everywhere in a repertoire where rap takes on pop and sometimes even rock hues, thanks to the presence of three musicians, too rare in hip-hop, to share the stage with him.

Rymz: unbridled

Between Roméo Elvis and 20Some, Rymz appeared on stage with the clear intention of filling their ears with the help of a guitarist, DJ Shash’U and the visit of cutting-speed rapper D4vid Lee.

Launched at top speed and with an obvious directive to avoid downtime, his performance peaked when the hedonistic rapper from Saint-Hyacinthe chained an unbridled version of Krevestanding on the console before giving the floor to Shash’U, who also managed to startle the crowd to the sound of new power.
