Scott McGerik This track makes me uncomfortably aware of the privilege I have as a white American. Favorite track: THE INVISIBLE BACKPACKER OF PRIVILEGE w/ Chantz Erolin, Chris Hooks.
Ill Crop

Ill Crop Over and under the best woke hip-hop LP in 2013. Guante completely lacks pretension as he speaks the real over Big Cats' emotive grooves. Favorite track: A PRAGMATIST'S GUIDE TO REVOLUTION.
The Quon

The Quon Guante is one of my favorite MCs and has been for nearly a decade now. There probably isn't a smarter rapper out there. There also isn't another rapper who can make songs about America's mixed up notions of Sex, Race and Coolness so damn listenable. Favorite track: FIREWORKS.

about

Guante is an MC, two-time National Poetry Slam champion, activist and educator. Big Cats is a visionary producer and multi-instrumentalist who has worked with Sage Francis, P.O.S., TTxBC and others. Together, they’ve crafted an album brimming with substantive punchlines, gallows humor and a down-to-earth political edge, all over some of the most gorgeously banging production of the year. Featuring indie-rap visionaries like Toki Wright, Crescent Moon (of Kill the Vultures), Kristoff Krane and more, “You Better Weaponize” is one of the tightest, smartest, most singular projects ever to emerge from the lauded Twin Cities underground hip hop scene.
