Cadence Weapon

It’s safe to say that out of all the artists on this year’s CMW bill, new Anti signing Cadence Weapon (aka Rollie Pemberton) was amongst those who had the least to prove. But if the Edmonton rapper was resting on his laurels, he certainly didn’t show it with this scorching performance. The capacity crowd did what was expected of them, of course, and ate it all up. Pemberton himself was in a talkative mood, and his constant referencing of his hometown even seeped its way into his set list choices. Was that a cover of Chad VanGaalen’s "Mini TV’s” I heard?
