Imposs went on to make a solo career releasing his debut solo album in 2007 entitled Mon Poing D'Vue.

Career[edit]

Muzion is considered a prominent group on the Montreal urban scene. The group went on to win the Félix Award at the ADISQ gala for Best Album of the Year - Hip Hop two times, first in 2000 for their debut album Mentalité Moune Morne… (Ils n'ont pas compris) and again in 2003 for their second album J'Rêvolutionne.

Based on the success of the albums in France, they toured the formation IV My People, an extension of the cult group NTM, playing at the Zenith in Paris.

Muzion has had many collaborations and most notably with Wyclef Jean in his francophone song 24 Heures à vivre.
