Submitted by on February 3, 2013 – 11:11 pmNo Comment

Released independently in May of last year, Hope In Dirt City is the third album from revered Edmonton, AB, rapper Cadence Weapon. Shortlisted for the 2012 Polaris Music Prize, the album has spawned a number of campus radio classics. The latest single from the disc is “Hype man,” a video that comes co-directed by Weapon and award-winning director George Vale. The production, say the artists behind it, examines “the plights and ultimate demise of the hip-hop hype man.”
