Noisemakers S1E9: Cadence Weapon

Jul 11, 2012

dmonton’s Cadence Weapon has been repping the oft-overlooked Canadian rap scene for several years, even once holding the position of Edmonton’s Poet Laureate. Now Montreal-based, his recently-released third record Hope In Dirt City finds the MC working with independent Canadian artists like Doldrums, crafting distinctly Canadian avant-rap.

Keeping with the themes of his album, Cadence Weapon took over a dilapidated abandoned building to perform Dirt City highlight “Conditioning” and talk to us about the Canadian rap scene, being the “black AC/DC” and music as his lifelong document.
