Buck 65, ChartAttack's favourite baseball-obsessed geek rapper, has signed a deal with Warner Music Canada.The Buckster, who's known to family members as Rich Terfry, will release his forthcoming album Square through the label in September. In addition, Warner will be re-releasing five of Buck 65's previous records, Language Arts, Vertex, Man Overboard, Weirdo Magnet and Synethesia.For those of you unfamiliar with the Halifax-based Buck 65's unique verbal stylings, he combines a bit of dark humour with equally dark soundscapes. Absurdly prolific, just a few of the projects you'll find Terfry connected to include Buck 65, Stinkin Rich and Sebutones.Also a never-a-dull-moment rapscallion, Terfry seems magnetic to strange hijinx. When shooting a video for his "Pants On Fire" single, Terfry was pulled over by the cops while driving around in an old New York City taxi cab. It's too complicated to get into, but you can read about it HERE. His www.buck65.com is also featuring an interesting story right now, too. Apparently, an old couple stole a box of his demo cassettes while he was moving. It needs to be read to be believed. Anyway, in his typically wry manner, Terfry summed up the signing thusly: "The label found me asleep in a ditch and took me in, cleaned me up, gave me a warm meal, treated me really nice, and so I decided to stay."This was followed by a statement from Warner:"Buck 65 is an exciting and unique international artist. For Warner Music Canada this represents a very important cultural signing, and he cleans up real nice," said Steve Kane, the label's senior VP/managing director.On an unrelated note, geeks everywhere are rejoicing that Warner called Buck 65 "a very important cultural signing," thereby lending credibility to the sealing-everything-in-plastic-sleeves-baseball-card-collectin', BMX-ridin', comic-book-readin', rappin'-about-being-a-centaur sub-culture.
