Cadence Weapon Hope in Dirt City

Cadence Weapon continues to firmly establish his legacy as a sonic pioneer while constantly pushing the rap and electronic music envelope. Following his critically acclaimed, Polaris Music Prize nominated albums Breaking Kayfabe and Afterparty Babies and a two-year term as Edmonton’s Poet Laureate, he returns with his new album “Hope In Dirt City” this Spring. A clearly defined and emotionally mature statement of intent, “Hope In Dirt City” represents the culmination of these experiences. Composed of a unique hybrid of psychedelic soul, old school rap, IDM and mutant disco, "Hope In Dirt City" is a ground-breaking achievement in hip-hop. Cadence Weapon has returned to bring rap back to its essence

 “Erstwhile poet laureate and current purveyor of the shortest, most balling-est homage to hip-hop we’ve heard this year” RCRD LBL

“Cadence Weapon has always sought to be ahead of the game, making prominent use of electronic producers at a time when hip hop seems largely caught in a form of aesthetic stasis.” CLASH MUSIC
