A proper full-length follow-up to 2008’s Afterparty Babies is apparently in the works, but until then, Edmonton rapper/poet laureate Cadence Weapon is tiding us over with a new mixtape he dropped on Tuesday, Tron Legacy.
His cultural references and wit sharp as ever, Cadence Weapon tears through an eclectic collection of beats, from Oh No’s Heavy to The Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs. Or maybe you prefer E-40. Or Sleigh Bells. They get the Cadence Weapon treatment, too.
Exclaim has more on Tron Legacy, which Cadence Weapon says was intended as a “parody of your typical rap mixtape.” It’s certainly worth however much you want to pay – and then some.
