Nation Ruckus (formerly known as 4DZ) is a Montreal-based hip-hop collective that consists of rapper Milk-E Fresh, multi-instrumentalist/beat-maker Qual…ity and DJ WiM. With an eclectic style that combines the sound of 80s and 90s rap along with rock, pop and electro influences, the group has built a unique alternative blend of clever rhymes and hard-hitting grooves.
Their unique take on classic beats, with inspirations ranging from Beastie Boys, The Roots, and Outkast, has fuelled a strong following of enthusiasts who enjoy the trio’s high intensity performances and ability to bring the house down.
Along with some of Montreal’s top musicians, the group has opened for the likes of Ludacris, Down with Webster, Talib Kweli and Big Boi. In addition to winning some of the city’s most prominent urban music contests, the members of Nation Ruckus have distinguished themselves with performances at the world renowned Montreal Jazz Festival, Canadian Music Fest, and NXNE.
The group’s momentum is growing fast, having already gathered over 300,000 hits on YouTube and a heavy rotation on MuchVibe. This year, the members of Nation Ruckus are ready to hit the mainstream and are set to release their highly anticipated debut album, Boombox Manifesto, in October. The album’s first single, “Funky Sneakers,” is a perfect summer jam with whimsical, lively lyrics over hypnotizing drum beats. Milk-E Fresh’s quick-witted persona and slick delivery provides an anthem for sneaker heads and streetwear lovers. The track is also the first of Nation Ruckus’ Fresh 2 Def Thursdays, a series of weekly Nation Ruckus music giveaways.
Throughout the summer, the members of the group will take their uncanny ability to hype live audiences on the road, offering performances at various events and festivals across the U.S. and Canada.
