Biography

Reddnation is one of the true top Canadian rap groups, representing Edmonton, AB and Regina, SK. They draw from their Aboriginal backgrounds to create a hybrid of hip-hop and cultural values which translates into music that is fresh, original, and exciting. In a league of their own, their music has brought them many accolades from the Canadian Aboriginal music industry.

The group, made up of Ill Logikal, Madjikal, Rayne, DJ Kracka Jack and DJ Hooligan, continue to tear down barriers facing hip-hop music. The group has been well received as being more than just a rap act. They have class, professionalism, and above all - humility.

The group was formed in 2000 and since then has performed for tens of thousands of people across Canada. Major Performances: 2002/2008 North American Indigenous Games 2002 and 2004 Arctic Winter Games 2003-2006 Canadian Aboriginal Festival (Roger's Centre, Toronto)

Key performances include major venues as the Shaw Conference Centre (Edmonton, AB), Winnipeg Convention Centre, Canadian Museum of Civilization (Ottawa/Gatineau, ON), John Basset Theatre (Toronto), Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (Edmonton), and Roger's Centre (Skydome, Toronto).

In 2006 they shot two music videos "Fabulous" and "Wiggle Dem Toes" through the Much Music sponsored VideoFACT video grant program. They were the first Aboriginal rap group to receive such a grant twice in a single year.

Along with being a distinguished rap act, they have also revolutionized the Aboriginal music scene with their youth oriented workshops. Their dedication to focusing on issues affecting Aboriginal youth have enabled them to share their own experiences as well as network with tomorrow's future leaders. As a result, CBC Radio commissioned RN to create a theme song for a series entitled "Soaring Spirits" which profiled prominent First Nation people in the city of Edmonton.

Setting new standards in Aboriginal urban music, Reddnation continues to venture into new territories and establish themselves as true ambassadors for not only Canadian hip-hop music, but for Aboriginal people everywhere.
