The Hurt Crew, a rap group, was formed by multiple like-minded artists throughout B.C. First starting in Tumbler Ridge by Noah Deighton in 2012, when Deighton was first given the group’s name.

“It could have a different meaning for every member in the group, but in the end it all comes back to an individual simply doing what he wants and exploring his own beliefs,” Deighton said.

The group originally consisted of Deighton, Austin Jaworski and Dylan Bolger, but it has since grown to include rappers Shane Smith and Lane Koop, guitarist Lucas Bosma and professional biker Nathan Hines.
