Who is Plex to Judge?
Doug Bedard, Ojibwe/Cree, has been recording as Plex for the last 3 decades. Growing up in Edmonton, Alberta, he’s established himself as one of the OG’s of Indigenous Hip Hop. His newest release, Who Am I to Judge?, is Plex’s return to the mic after a 10 year hiatus. Of the album he’s said, “The album speaks directly about my struggles with drugs and alcohol, the evolution of hip-hop, cultural appropriation, and the state of the planet — all while pondering what it may take to fix it.” Red Flags, his latest single, addresses the pretendian phenomenon and just last week went to #1 on the Indigenous Music Countdown. This week on Gaënö’ Plex joins me to discuss the album and so much more. Enjoy!
