Cadence Weapon — “88” (prod. by Grimes) mp3

I’ve never forgiven Cadence Weapon for his ’07 Pitchfork show. I was 17 and on that white-boy fringe hip hop tip—Passage, Company Flow, anything on the Anticon Label—Cadence seemed like the best of all possible worlds, quasi-abstract lyrics and a smooth flow over (what were for the time) experimental beats steeped in electronica. The genres hadn’t merged as unapologetically then. I thought it was great, so I to decided to see him over Cat Power at Pitchfork. Cadence closed his lazy set with a karaoke style sing-along to Weezer’s “Pink Triangle”, and I missed the most beautiful woman sing heart-rending soul songs forever.

Bennyway, here he is with three new tracks, and the best of the batch, 88, is produced by post-internet artist, and awesome chick, Grimes. He also raps over Meek Mill’s “House Party,” where his flow feels distinctly more versatile and refined than on Breaking Kayfabe, a supremely underrated album in it’s own right. Enjoy.
