Biography The group Black Mob has been together since 2001 with big plans for the Montreal rap music scene. Now, in 2008 they view themselves as older, wiser and more driven than ever to achieve their goals.
The group presently consists of members, Q, Key, Senior, and PO. They each bring their own individual strengths to the group. When asked what their music is about they explained that artistically they each have different styles, they each choose to rap about what is important to them. In other words they each make music that expresses their individual realities and all together it becomes "Mob Music".
Black Mob has performed in several venues across the island of Montreal, they shared the stage with Grammy winner Michael Rose of the fame Reggae band Black Uhuru at the 2007 Montreal International Reggae Festival, they were also able to release a single with the aforementioned Michael Rose called: "Number One (Favorite Girl)", which is getting rave review at home and abroad. The Mob opened up for Collie Budz at The Club Saint located in the heart of Montreal's downtown district. Along with those high profile performances they have also performed for the grand opening of the LaSalle Community Center, and also headlined the first annual WIBCA (West Island Black Community Association) fundraiser. As a Collective they feel events such as these are very important, so that they can let the younger generation see that older peers of the same circumstances can do something other than wrong and obtain their goals.
The Mob also previously recorded a single with reggae legend Junior Reid. The name of that single is called "Hatin' (Young Generation)". The two singles "Number One (Favorite Girl) and "Hatin' (Young Generation)" were produced by Grammy Nominated Apex Productionz, who also produced the Grammy nominated hit single "I Get Money" by 50 Cent. The single "Hatin'" and the "City On Fire" mix tape have definitely put Black Mob on the local and international radar of hip-hop groups to watch. Black Mob show great appreciation for the support they get from their home based fans in the West Island of Montreal and abroad.
