Loco Locass, founded en 1995, is a Quebec City rap group. In Quebec the group is known especially for its enthusiastic defence
of the role of the French language and for its political championing of Quebec sovereignty.The group was formed by Batlam, Biz,
and Chafiik, three French language enthusiasts who integrated poetic and activist lyrics with rap beats and music.
Their rhymes deal most with promoting Quebec sovereignty, but they also address politics generally, the role of French in
Canada, alternative globalization movements, the struggle against social exclusion and, to a certain extent, openness to ethnic
others, as well as more personal message.
