Hailing from the Samson Cree Nation, Karmen James Omeasoo aka Hellnback is no stranger to the music industry. As co-founder of the music industry’s first Native super-group, Warparty (circa 93), Hellnback was known as Kool-ayd the Chubby Cree. Kool-ayd, back then, helped set the foundation and path for many artists who would follow next.

Hellnback plans on solidifying his place in history as one of the best to ever grab a microphone.
