Edmonton, Alberta-bred Rollie Pemberton (a.k.a. blog-championed Cadence Weapon) pops verses like it’s the Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots state championship. Cadence Weapon is the square root of Atmosphere’s highly personalized bitching mixed with Antipop Consortium’s ruff 8-bit glitches multiplied by Pharoahe Monch’s plaids and pinstripes. Hoarse layers are stitched into organic blueprints as Cadence spouts electro-cution across 12 condensed tracks (originally released in 2005 but hermetically sealed against staleness). Cadence Weapon’s overall presentation is as fricative as it is finessed, like bobbing graphite croutons in silica soup.
