Cadence Weapon w/The Gaff

  • The Good Will Social Club 625 Portage Avenue Winnipeg, MB, R3B 2G4 Canada (map)

Named Canada’s “most creative” rapper by the National Post, Cadence Weapon has consistently exhibited a passion to take rap into new and unexpected directions.

His self-produced debut album, Breaking Kayfabe, was released in December 2005 and met with international critical acclaim and was shortlisted for the inaugural Polaris Music Prize. After the release of his 2008 album, Afterparty Babies — which The New York Times described as “dense, tricky productions that pile samples and scratching atop techno and electro beats” — his appointment in 2009 as Poet Laureate of Edmonton, and 2012’s Hope in Dirt City, Cadence is back with a new self-titled album that expands his stylistic range by incorporating elements of trap, funk, electro, techno and grime.
