many, many thanks to the hitman for his reticent though awesome and compelling DJ week as he unknowingly transitioned us through during the remodeling (by the way, this wood panel is awesome, sean).
hitman, if you were still DJing, i'd tell you that we've already done jazz week, and it's time to transition to the new, no matter how weird and unsettling it is. then, i'd tell you to top this.
While most of my favorite rap (and all that I've posted thus far this week) is from the dirty south, Cadence Weapon is from Montreal via Edmonton. I first heard about him because he posted on a music message board I used to read. I think he's pretty great. His beats are pretty wild, and he writes interesting lyrics.And in 2009 he was named Edmonton's poet laureate. Pretty cool.
He also puts on a hell of a live show. I saw him in October, and I'm considering driving to Winnipeg again next weekend to see him again. This was the last song he played when we saw him, and it was hype as hell.
so ends the glut of unibroue and poutine; flying back home today.
