Boomkat Product Review:
Cadence Weapon is 21-year old Rollie Pemberton of Edmonton, Canada, who clearly is no short supply of talent when it comes to producing smart, next level abstract hip-hop. Apparently Pemberton started out his career in the music industry as an 18 year old, reviewing hip hop for the mighty Pitchfork Media site. Since then, under the Cadence Weapon moniker Pemberton has enjoyed an enormous level of critical success in his native Canada, and where there's critical smoke there does tend to be fire of some sort, and off the strength of this album you'd have to conclude that Pemberton's a veritable inferno. Definitely an artist for any self-respecting leftfield hip-hopper to get acquainted with.
