Just got back from the European tour. They have so many more flavours of Ricola there. Made lots of new friends and now I'm looking forward to hanging out with my fellow North Americans and checking out their regional foods this fall. I'm going on tour with Fat Tony and Hua Li 化力 and it's happening a month from today! Fat Tony is the homie from way back and I'm so glad that he'll be rolling with me for this tour. He's a renaissance man, he raps, sings, DJs, runs Found Me magazine and hosts the show Thrift Haul on Super Deluxe. His home city of Houston named a day after him, Fat Tony Day! I'm featured on his upcoming new album 10,000 Hours and he's an absolute legend in the making. Hua Li 化力 is a remarkable multidisciplinary artist from Montreal who combines rap, R&B and classical piano for an altogether unique interpretation of hip hop music. She recently put together a live multimedia experience called Dynasty at MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels). She's truly one of a kind. In addition to her own performance, she'll be DJing for my set as well.

When I first moved to Toronto with my girlfriend, we had trouble finding an apartment. We looked at dozens of places, dealing with racist landlords and open houses with over 80 people in line. It seemed inevitable that we’d end up moving into one of those anonymous glass condo towers skirting the city. While this was happening, I wrote “High Rise,” a song about gentrification from the perspective of a voracious real estate agent hell-bent on destroying the fabric of neighbourhood life. It was produced by Montreal house luminary Jacques Greene. We hung out and jammed on a few themes, sounds and ideas in the shadow of a condo that was being built across the street from us and created something that felt appropriately dystopian. Check out “High Rise” on Spotify and Apple Music: Spotify - https://tinyurl.com/highrise-spot Apple Music - https://tinyurl.com/highrise-apple The album is out on Friday!
My new album is out on January 19 - that’s less than a month from now! You can pre-order the vinyl here: https://shop.lastgang.com/products/cadence-weapon It’s translucent “purple smoke” vinyl and it looks totally insane IRL. Can’t wait for everybody to hear this music!!! 🔮💿🎆
