The group debuted in the summer of 2010 with the hits All That I Know and Bang Bang, taken from their self-titled debut studio album; released in June 2010, the album was produced by the Juno nominated producers Stomp and Jay Mak of Team Rezofficial. These initial singles spawned videos directed by Stuey Kubrick and received significant airplay on Canada's Much Music.[3][4] The group won numerous Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards in 2010, including the award for Best New Artist, and they won six APCMA's in 2011.[5]

Biography[edit]

Winnipeg’s Most is a hip hop group from Winnipeg, MB.

Northside Connection[edit]

In early June 2010, Winnipeg's Most released their first project to the public: a pre-album promotional mixtape titled "Northside Connection." The mixtape featured artists like Blu, Ed E Buk, Zeek Illa, Bubblz, and Lady Seduction. This release was immediately popular both online and in the city of Winnipeg, and in the wake of this success, the group released two singles to the Winnipeg radio station Streetz FM: All That I Know and On These Streets. These songs quickly hit number one on the station's top 10 chart. This radio play, combined with the thousands of online downloads of the promotional mixtape, quickly established Winnipeg's Most as one of the most revered hip hop group to ever emerge from Winnipeg. With the exception being mood ruff[6]

The album featured Kobe, Ed E Buk, and Zeek Illa, and it featured the hit songs All That I Know, On These Streetz, and What You In It For. Boogey the Beat co-produced one track with Stomp, titled It's A Jungle Out Here. The group won 3 out of the 4 Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards that they were nominated for.
