About Cadence Weapon:
Called Canada’s “most creative” rapper by the National Post, Cadence Weapon has consistently exhibited a passion to take rap into new and unexpected directions. Born in Edmonton, Roland “Rollie” Pemberton had an upbringing uniquely suited to becoming a rapper. His father Teddy, a Brooklyn native, was the DJ that introduced hip-hop to Edmonton with his pioneering radio show The Black Experience in Sound on CJSR 88.5 FM. In 2010, he was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Fame at the Stylus DJ Awards. After spending his childhood immersed in his father’s diverse archive of music, Rollie started rapping at age 13.
Now based in Toronto, Cadence is back with a new self-titled album that expands his stylistic range by incorporating elements of trap, funk, electro, techno and grime. Featuring guest appearances by Blue Hawaii and Deradoorian and production by KAYTRANADA, Jacques Greene, FrancisGotHeat, Harrison, Dubbel Dutch and more, this record finds Cadence refining his songwriting as he explores themes of individuality, race, technology and existentialism through his expressive lyrics.
