Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! After taking a week off, we’re back at it, refreshed as ever. Our special guest on the program this week is Shane Kelsey aka. Project Toombz. Shane is a Montreal-based Indigenous hip-hop artist, but also works as an activist and frontline worker at a homeless shelter. He started to make waves in MTL with his previous outfit, Northern Collection, but after parting ways with his bandmate, launched a solo project under Project Toombz. He’s already put out some amazing videos, and is now crowd-funding for his first full-length album, “Nomad”. Check it, pre-order your copy, and support the album by clicking here!

Project Toombz’s music touches on issues of abuse, Indigeneity, sexism, but also positivity and keeping it real in these tough times. Enjoy!
