Very ampt for this one!  Cage is a trailblazer in the indie rap world and the last time I played with Sadistik it got pretty wild.  Tickets are available for this one at:

KidDEAD at The Compound with Black Hand Path on Feb. 3rd

January 25, 2014

Exciting News for all my Richmond VA people!  The near-legendary KidDEAD will be rocking live at The Compound on Feb 3rd along with yours truly, and a local MC I've been excited about recently, Black Hand Path.  It's a free show, and the location is a semi-secret.  Get at me for details.

KidDEAD's latest Single, "Thieves"

 

***DOUBLE EXCITEMENT***

This show will be preceded by a new thing I'm calling The Writers Bench Cypher.  Each time The Writers Bench occurs, there will be a guest beatmaker rocking their instrumentals for a gathering of MC's to spit Written Rhymes over.  This is a chance for MC's to try out new written flows over different instrumental rhythms, hopefully getting feedback and learning and helping others learn and grow in the process.  The goal here is to collectively up our talents through interaction in a way that's a bit different from the classic Freestyle Cypher.

 

See You There.

This is going to be a killer lineup.  Myself, Black Liquid, and Voss, who is On Fire right now, battling on BET's 106 and Park, and securing a record deal with Universal Studios.  This is my first real attempt at booking a bar event in Richmond,...

Swordplay Releases his New LP "Tap Water"!

September 6, 2013

I am happy to announce that I will be performing with my good friend Swordplay at Strange Matter on 9/11, as he releases his latest  "Tap Water" to the public.  In addition, Brzowski, who features on Tap Water, will be performing as well.  I think we can reasonably expect the possibility of a collaborative performance that would be quite rare indeed.  In addition, Due Justice will be doing his  thing along with James Dangle and Goad Gatsby and Black Liquid!  Woo!  If hat sounds like a veritable who's who of RVA Hip Hop, it kind of is.  We will all be out to celebrate the release of this fantastic piece of work, also, to rock these fuckin' mics.  Again thats Strange Matter on 9/11 at 9:00! See you there Richmond!

What is Tap Water?

Tap Water cover art

A collaboration with the French producer Pierre The Motionless, Tap Water is a beautifully crafted album that explores some very contemporary themes. Things like police militarization, government surveillance and teleportation.  I've had the pleasure of hearing this album as it was being built, and The only reason I won't call it a masterpiece is because as his good friend I could be accused of having a biased opinion.  Fuck it.  It's a masterpiece.  But you don't have to take my word for it.  Check out this review at Rhizome:

I know Rt. 1 between Baltimore and Philly like the back of my hand now, and that makes for easy riding.  Again it threatened storms but delivered only a light rain that brought out the smell of the asphalt and the...
