Forgive me for jumping on the bandwagon here, and posting the song L’Oubli by local artist Dramatik.
In the music video, a business man gets a surprise tour of Montreal North when he steps into a taxi with the artist at the wheel, singing “as-tu oublié qu’on vivait ici?” (“did you forget that we lived here?”)
In an interview with Stefan Christoff in the Hour, Dramatik descirbes how the video pays homage his neighbourhood:
“L’Oubli shows the socio-economic divide in our own city, between downtown and Montreal North, while showing that Montreal North isn’t a bad place.
L’Oubli is a conscious contrast to other hip-hop videos that always show communities that are broken and poor. My video doesn’t show all the stereotypes of the hood, but the beauty of my neighbourhood in struggle. It’s a stereotype hood, but it’s a real and vibrant community.”
