Cadence Weapon - Black Hand

Edmonton native Rollie Pemberton AKA Cadence Weapon has received a lot of praise in a lot of Canadian year ends lists with the album "Breaking Kayfabe" (a reference to breaking the fourth wall in pro wrestling), which I just picked up and am currently enjoying. Known for his remixing artists such as Death From Above 1979, as well as for being one of the writers at pitchforkmedia.com , Cadence Weapon is definitely a step above the same-old same-old rap music we're used to in North America these days, and that has more to do with the quality of his backing music than his flow or lyrics.
