Cadence Weapon, Kingdom Crumbs, Tope

When: Sun., Oct. 28, 8:30 p.m. 2012

Cadence Weapon is the stage name of Canadian emcee/musician/poet Rollie Pemberton. Pemberton's latest, Hope in Dirt City, is a wildly adventurous album both in its sonic structure as well as in its thematic decisions. The production eschews standard boom bap, and features nods to electronica and jazz skronk alongside fractured lyrical bars that include references to Jean-Paul Satre and Louis Theroux. Seattle four-piece Kingdom Crumbs bring breezy street flows, spat over shimmery beats. It's a style all their own, if reminiscent of a smokier Shabazz Palaces. Local emcee Tope gets the party started with his final solo set prior to embarking on a West Coast tour with Los Angeles rapper Abstract Rude in November. RYAN FEIGH
