Cadence Weapon at the Grog Shop

Last Thurs­day I went to the Grog Shop to catch Cadence Weapon while every­one else was at the Beach­land see­ing Explo­sions in the Sky. I man­aged to chat with Rol­lie for a bit before the sets start­ed. He said that their tour had been inter­sect­ing with EitS a few times already. He was also sick as a dog, but put on a more ener­getic set, despite obvi­ous­ly hav­ing to put forth supreme effort to do, than most non-sick folks I see. DJ Weez-l was just as sick [slang sense this time] on the turnta­bles, as you’ll see if you watch the video, which con­tains two songs, “House Music” from After­par­ty Babies and “Oliv­er Square” from Break­ing Kay­fabe.

His newest album, After­par­ty Babies, came out last month, I picked up both that and Break­ing Kay­fabe on vinyl. After­par­ty Babies came with a coupon for a free mp3 down­load of the album that doesn’t work. I sent the label, ANTI-, an email, and emailed Cadence Weapon’s site as well, but haven’t heard a damn thing.

Jurassic 5

Stu­dent Film Fes­ti­val was last night. ’twas excel­lent. leav­ing in a few hours to fence at OSU and kick some buck­eye ass.

The Fri­day mp3

I’m not too big on rap, yet I like Juras­sic 5. They rap with an old school fla­vor that in a way that is refresh­ing from crap stuff like Nel­ly or Nel­lie or eminem or M&M or Method Man or Red Man or Colosto­my Man just to name a few. i haven’t done my research but i have a feel­ing they start­ed out as a freestyle rap group along the lines of Free­way. It’s nice. Any­way, here’s What’s Gold­en.
