Storms at the FEQ: Rymz had the chance to shine

It was finally Quebecer Rymz who had the last word at the Parc de la Francophonie on Tuesday before the site was evacuated due to storms. The rapper did very well in front of spectators who were expecting Nas as the headliner.

If there’s one thing that will never go out of style in music, no matter the genre, it’s a sharp pen. Rapper Rymz is a prime example of this, and that’s why he’s still relevant, more than 15 years after his debut. With Indeliblethe eponymous song from his second solo album, or Banghis most recent title to be released on his next album in November, the Maskoutain was able to electrify the crowd at the Parc de la Francophonie by mixing rich rhymes and charismatic stage presence, as he is renowned for doing.

Even though he is known for his deep and often more melancholic lyrics, Rymz still believes in love with a capital A. As proof, his wife, the singer Naomi, came to join him for a moment on stage so that the rapper could celebrate their first wedding anniversary. The crowd appreciated this moment, which could not have set the table better for New druga must-have in Rymz’s repertoire.

The audience also had time to sink their teeth into the rap of the Aboriginal duo Violent Ground, originally from the Naskapi community of Kawawachikamach, in northern Quebec. The duo performed very well and did not let themselves be intimidated by the shy crowd in front of them.

Mike Shabb and producer Nicholas Craven, who was behind the decks, also got the festival-goers going in a great way, just before Rymz took to the stage for what would be the last performance of the evening.
