Canadian Lyricist Husser Announces the Heavy, Sinister Geto Rock For The Youth EP, Releasing November 15th
The Acclaimed Emcee and Member of The Posterz Shares “Catherine,” a Melancholic and Heavy Rumination on the Rapper’s Rough Neighborhood
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
With an evocative pen, an authoritative stage-whisper flow, and a sinister demeanor, Husser is one of Canada’s underground kings. Returning to the scene for his first solo project, Husser announces Geto Rock For The Youth EP, a hard-edged and lyrical dose of industrial rap. Featuring seven tracks of dark, dense sonics, revealing personal stories, clever wordplay, and unique flows, Geto Rock For The Youth is an invigorating solo debut release, influenced by Yaadcore, Eminem, Beck, and Rage Against The Machine alike. 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 makes the most of his time in the solo spotlight on GRFTY, showcasing his off-kilter charisma, nimbly weaving his high-pitched rasp through spaces in the beat. Releasing on November 15th, Geto Rock For The Youth posits Husser as a vital underground artist for the internet age, providing a thinking man’s counterpoint to the sinister sound dominating South Florida’s SoundCloud rap scene.
Today, Husser shares “Catherine,” an atmospheric and claustrophobic new music video and the first single from the project. Built around several tight close-ups on Husser’s expressive face, filmed over the summer by Husser himself using his iPhone, “Catherine” paints a bleak picture of life on St. Catherine Street in Montreal, near the Little Burgundy neighborhood where Husser grew up, intercut with clips of Husser stage-diving during a raucous performance. The visual is perfectly suited to the modal, guitar-driven instrumental, which starts out quietly, but ratchets up into an almost unbearable intensity as the emcee chants “who gon’ die, who gon’ die, who gon die?” The opening track on Geto Rock For The Youth EP, “Catherine” is Husser’s second music video of 2017, following “Can’t Blame ‘Em,” which the FADER called “Get Out meets an Apple Launch Event” in their April premiere.

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.
