The Acclaimed Montreal Emcee Released “Paintings For The Blind,” a Lo-Fi and Revealing Video for an EP Highlight
Critical Praise for The Posterz:
“One of the artists I’m most excited about right now is Husser” – The FADER
“You can expect to see a lot more of Husser in XXL if he continues to drop quality tracks and videos like this one.” – XXL
The EP + Video:
With an intensely personal aesthetic and influences from all over the musical spectrum, Nate Husser is one of the most uniquely creative emcees on either side of the US/Canada border. Blending his widespread musical and personal influences, including Beck and Rage Against the Machine, into a a hard-edged and lyrical dose of industrial rap, Husser shares Geto Rock For The Youth EP, his first solo EP. An invigorating release with a dark sonic palette, the Noisey-premiered GRFTY showcases Husser’s off-kilter charisma, nimbly weaving his high-pitched rasp through spaces in the beat. A member of the critically acclaimed rap group The Posterz, dubbed “best new rap group” by Jeff Weiss and the “pillars of the new wave of Montreal rap” by Complex, Husser establishes a compelling solo identity, sometimes aggressive, sometimes aspirational, but always defiant and clever. A compelling counterpoint to the dark, aggressive waves emanating from South Florida and SoundCloud, Geto Rock For The Youth is an impressive debut, positioning Nate Husser as a vital underground artist for the internet age.
Explains Husser, “Geto Rock For The Youth is a vibe, a feel, a genre, a lifestyle, a sound. The project is heavily influenced by my childhood in the 90s, growing up with no Hip Hop radio station in my city. But still, I had great times and the good vibes and feels I soaked up and that stuck with me from that time are what I wanted to translate thru this project. I’m just doin what artists are born to do: Creating. Me and the other members of The Posterz–we gotta learn to create in collaboration as well as by ourselves, if we ever wanna be near as great as we all can be.”
Premiered earlier this week by Afropunk, Husser shared “Paintings For The Blind,” a lo-fi, slice of life video that demonstrates Husser’s charisma and character. The video follows Husser as he lives his life, hopping on a plane to a Caribbean island, where he plays soccer with the locals, rides a speedboat, drinks on the beach, and attends a birthday party. Starting with a low-key, minor guitar-and-bass groove, the song gradually builds up steam as the video reaches its climax, with Husser stunting on the street with an entire village of locals. The second track on Geto Rock For The Youth EP, “Paintings For the Blind” explores Husser’s (and society’s) ambition and his constant need for more, more, more: “I already have everything I need/A couple bad bitches and some good ass weed/But if I could just ask for one more thing/That would be a million bucks.” “Paintings For The Blind” is the second video from the project, following the atmospheric and claustrophobic “Catherine,” filmed by Husser himself on an iPhone.

In five short years and not much more than one EP worth of music, Montreal-based rap trio The Posterz have staked their claim in hip-hop both locally and globally with their refreshing, raw and innovative sound. They seemingly emerged fully formed, making their first splash with October 2013’s “The Bass Song,” a defiant anthem that came with an equally vibrant, self-directed video. The Starships and Dark Tints EP followed, as did love from the press: the trio were named in Huffington Post’s “Top 10 Artists to Follow” in 2014, and featured in numerous publications such as Noisey US/UK/France/Canada, Complex, Red Bull Music, Les InRocks, the Montreal Gazette, and more. Their critically acclaimed JUNGA EP released on October 30th, 2015.
