Cadence Weapon invading U.S.

Thanks to Brooklyn Vegan (via Chart Attack), who reported that Edmonton’s Cadence Weapon, the man behind of one of my favorite hip-hop albums of last year, has signed to Epitaph.

Consider what Epitaph, a label rooted in punk, is doing here. The label roster now includes Cadence Weapon, Busdriver, DangerDoom, the Coup and Sage Francis. That’s an impressive group of underground hip-hop artists.

As for Cadence Weapon (born Rollie Pemberton), his stellar LP, Breaking Kayfabe, will see a U.S. release on March 13. Catch up with what I wrote about Cadence here.

And be sure to pour some out for the dearly departed Razorblade Runner, Pemberton’s one-time corner in the world of mp3 blogs.

If you can’t wait for March 13, eMusic has been hawking Breaking Kayfabe for the past year now.
