Cadence Weapon – Afterparty Babies (album cover)

by

This album cover is awesome. Afterparty Babies drops March 4th on Epitaph/Big Dada.

Cadence Weapon - Afterparty Babies

Epitaph: “Straight outta Edmonton comes Cadence Weapon and his highly anticipated Epitaph/Anti- debut, Afterparty Babies. Cadence Weapon (born Rollie Pemberton) burst on the scene with his acclaimed debut Breaking Kayfabe, which was awarded “Best Rap Album of 2006” at the Plug Awards and garnered critical praise from both the urban and indie music scenes alike. Mixing electro-tones and clever cultural references and a mad flow, Cadence Weapon steps it up on Afterparty Babies. At just 21, he has played with Jurassic 5, Spank Rock and the Go! Team, remixed Lady Sovereign and challenged the standard notions of what goes into constructing an important hip hop artist. Out March 4th, Afterparty Babies is a 14 track, 58 minute dance rap party epic, dedicated to “all the accidents out there”.”

  4. von christoph

  5. That’s one fun-lookin’ cover.

  6. jayoh fellonious

    that’s corvid lorax

  7. Is that Nik Kozub (referenced in “Oliver Square”) in the back row? I think that’s Lyle Bell (aka Whitey Houston) beside him.

  8. J.Soul

    Nato…and Manjito…

  9. i like the antlers. hahhaa. what a neat cover.

  10. NATE DIGGIDEE DOG

    I can’t wait for this shit to drop… would you believe me if I said that I produced #8???

  11. rollie

    i am real excited for this to drop

    coming out on cd and double vinyl

    the idea with the cover was to have like a high school class photo with as many people i could fit into the basement of the black dog on extremely short notice

    it turned out dope, i think

    i think people will be surprised by the rappiness of some of the tracks on this album

  12. jayoh fellonious

    wow! this album is already available online.

  13. That photo is nice piece of history now, considering the old Black Dog will probably never look the same since it went up in flames this morning: Edmonton Journal link

  14. isy

    Sweet album cover roll roll. The dingy-ness of the black dog adds a nice touch to the overall aesthetics. No canadian dates on the tour?

  15. word i had a chance to peep the promo copy of this. very tight, good job dude…

  16. rollie

    yeah, my album leaked already from promos

    i guess people want to jam it though, so that’s good

    fucking crazy about the black dog

    guess i’m not djing tomorrow, haha

    i’m touring canada in april, dates not confirmed yet
