Anyone in the Valley should go check out the Coup tonight at the Big Fish Pub in Tempe. I had planned on it, but the wife and I actually made an emergency jaunt to Henderson, Nev., where her parents live. Ill cat. Long story.
Anyway, the Coup’s Pick a Bigger Weapon is a politically charged gem in the vein of Public Enemy’s best work. It should stand up as one of the finest hip-hop releases of the year.
