New wave rapper Jeah and dark-R&B singer Merv xx Gotti are DGS Samurai Champs, a duo hailing from the cities of Regina and Saskatoon, determined to redefine the way people think about Canadian hip hop.
The duo draw in equal measure from their Southeast Asian heritage and their Urban Canadian identity. Since 2013 they have become a key player in the Saskatchewan hip-hop scene. Working on building their community rather than tearing others down, there’s a positivity to their sound that is infectious, and spreads way beyond the hip hop community.
The slick "Zone" might recall the textured productions of Drake and The Weeknd at times but there's a confidence and swagger that's all their own and the track has infectious lyrical hooks to spare.
