Cadence Weapon

Been seeing the new Cadence Weapon video for Real Estate on tv lately. Love it. My friend Dean and I saw him open up for Jurassic 5 (their last show ever in Vancouver) and I remember the crowd kinda being caught off guard because his sound was so different. Well, that was then and this is… well actually… I think most people still aren’t ready for his sound. Maybe because its as much house as it is hip hop.

His lyrics are witty and he produces all his own beats, but he’s definitely not gonna be everyone’s cup of tea. His debut album Breaking Kayfabe and followup Afterparty Babies are two of the most refreshing hiphop records in recent memory. Do yourself a favour and start listening to him now so by the time his third album comes out you’ll be ready.
