Preview: Cadence Weapon @ Rock And Roll Hotel

Cadence Weapon is the stage name of Rollie Pemberton, a Canadian rapper who’s words prove poetic in more ways than one as the artist has prestigiously served a two-year term as Edmonton’s Poet Laureate. In Cadence Weapon’s latest effort, Hope In Dirt City, Pemberton finds an intriguing balance between samples and live instrumentals, one that he describes as a “unique hybrid of psychedelic soul, old school rap, IDM and mutant disco.” That’s enough to get me excited for his show this Saturday, June 30th opening for Japandroids at the Rock and Roll Hotel.

Cadence Weapon’s Hope In Dirt City is out now via Upper Class Recordings.
