While Toronto's rap & R&B stars have received global attention in recent years, its neighbor Montreal arguably has the richer music scene. "My Crew (Woo)," a glitchy new collaboration between Montrealers Cadence Weapon and Kaytranada, is a glitchy ode to the throbbing underground clubs of Quebec.
"My Crew (Wooo) is an anthem about unapologetically being who you want to be, no matter what anybody else thinks," Cadence explains. "There’s a sense of personal freedom that’s unique to Montreal and 'My Crew (Woooo)' is a representation of that feeling. It’s the Brooklyn of Canada. It’s where every artistically minded person goes to freak-out for a few years and find themselves. The music scene in Montreal is very insular, you’re always meeting friends and making music... 'My Crew' is a song about defying the labels that people try to place on artists. Is it underground? Mainstream? Conscious? Trap? Who cares, as long as it sounds dope."

My niggas don’t run when it pop off
Might rock camo when the cops stop
Might cop a Lambo with the drop top
Make ya jaw drop, white hoe with a crop top
Better make like smoke with your potshots
In the hot spots, fall off, nigga, not that
Want me to stay poor? Nigga, stop that
Better fall back, head to the toe wearing all black
