Video: Cadence Weapon, “Conditioning”

Rollie Pemberton, the man behind Cadence Weapon and certainly the only rapper/ former Pitchfork writer to make the jump to poet laureate of Edmonton, is pointing the way toward his third album, Hope In Dirt City, out late next month. “Conditioning” is the first song we’ve heard, available for download below and featured above in a beautiful video directed by Tim Kelly. The cinematographer on “Conditioning” was Evan Prosofsky, the guy behind that incredible “Oblivion” video for fellow Canadian, Grimes (someone Cadence Weapon has collaborated with as well), again filming the world like it’s behind a wall of morning rain. The song’s great too, with Pemberton’s dynamic voice kicking up old school’s gravel and stretching to soulful highs. Hope In Dirt City comes out May 29th on Upper Class.

    Deep underground lyrics that you don’t hear from anybody anymore ……… It’s nice to see an artist come from the soul and not the media hype and delusion we live in today…..! Big ups Cadence keep it up….!
