Originating from the north end of Winnipeg, Manitoba, the group Winnipeg’s Most has arisen like a rose through the concrete. Comprised of three MC’s – Charlie Fettah, Jon-C and Brooklyn, Winnipeg’s Most are a cut above your regular local talent, both flamboyant, and rugged.
Charlie Fettah (Tyler Rogers) – a natural born emcee – started his rap career participating in weekly MC battles on a local radio station. He took the radio show by storm, winning 5 weeks in a row and retired as an undefeated battle champ. His versatile flow and vernacular continually leaves many industry insiders amazed.
Jon-C (Billy Pierson) aka Da General – First Nation member from Sagkeeng, Manitoba – was born and raised in Winnipeg’s North End. As an MC, Jon-C’s punchlines and visualizations provide an innovative look on a tough upbringing in Winnipeg’s North End. After releasing his first solo CD in 2009 – “Da General: Blood, Sweat & Tears” – the project received 3 nominations at the 2009 Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Awards: Best hip hop / rap CD, Best new artist, and Best CD cover design. As one of Canada’s newest young entrepreneurs, his day-to-day duties with his label Heatbag Records (“Best Winnipeg Record Label” – Uptown Magazine) include creating CD art work, engineering/mixing new projects and managerial duties.
Brooklyn (Jamie Prefontaine) a Metis born and raised in Winnipeg’s Brooklands neighborhood is the man behind the voice, the heart behind the rib cage. Emerging as one of Canada’s top urban artists, Brooklyn got his start in 2007 working on songs for Heatbag Record’s numerous mixtape releases. Responsible for writing local hits such as “Poor Daddy” & his 2009 Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Award nominated single “Badass Shorty”, his first solo release “Mind Of A Heatbag” helped build his foundation in Winnipeg’s fast-growing hip hop scene.
In early June of 2010, Winnipeg’s Most released their first project – a pre-album promotional mixtape entitled “Northside Connection” online and in Winnipeg with immediate success. They also released two singles to local radio – “All That I Know” and “On These Streets” (feat. Kobe) – and quickly hit number one. For their debut album, Winnipeg’s Most collaborated with Juno-nominated producers Stomp and Jay Mak of Rezofficial Music.
With thousands of downloads of their pre-album, local radio success & a deeply loyal following in their city, Winnipeg’s Most are quickly becoming the most revered hip hop group to emerge from their area in a long time.
