The best kept secret in music


"Basement Dreams"

"They didn’t disappoint. The group’s self-described old-school flows mixed with new-school beats brought this journalist back to his rap-obsessed teen years. Their lyrics are steeped in politics,..." - The Nation Magazine

"Violent Ground Tackles Heavy Lyrical Progress on The Release of Their Latest Record"

"...the duo paints a picture so well that it feels so complex and yet they make it seem so simple. The flow goes slow, fast, and through various stages, creating a kaleidoscope of thematic beats that are not seen in the mainstream right now." - Sell Out Records


Still working on that hot first release.



Allan and Christian Nabiniacaboo are from the Naskapi Nation of Kawawachikamach who began making music in 2005. Violent Ground was founded, quite naturally, after being separated due to education. They explored rhyming each on their own without knowing the other was putting himself out there. This lead to the beginning of their career. Performing shows in reserves in Quebec, including the First People's Festival in Montreal. Followed their self-titled debut release in 2014, produced my legendary grammy-award winning engineer/producer, David Strickland. Later in their journey, Allan had a terrible accident that left a cousin and a friend dead, and him critically injured. After months of physical therapy and a painful recovery, he uses his traumatic experience to overcome hardships and create music for the people.

The group's name is inspired by the history of the land and issues indigenous people face: drug addiction, alcoholism, colonialism, racism, crimes, and violence.

They want to give voice to their community, and to all indigenous people. They work hard to make their music known ... and to be heard.
