City Slang: Twiztid tour, Danny Brown on MTV2
Psychopathic RecordsâTwiztid and Californian weed-smoking rappers the Kottonmouth Kings will spend April and half of May touring the nation, with Blaze Ya Dead Homie and Big B in tow. The tour hits home on April 20, when they play the Emerald Theatre in Mt. Clemens.
Twiztidâs Monoxide said, âThis tour has been 10 years in the making. Come out and witness history as two of Americaâs biggest indie acts bring the âKaos and Kronikâ.â
According to the press release, âWhere most rappers celebrate the urban lifestyle with the same old themes and images, Twiztid peels away the gloss and exposes the innards. The demented duo, Monoxide and Jamie Madrox, take the hard edge of theatrical rock-and-roll and temper it with gritty hip-hop to create a musical monstrosity so dangerously real it must be hidden with face paint! These two arenât casual gangsters, but rather, they have painted personas that allow them to explore the darkest corners of the human psyche, from superhero fantasies to horror film legacies.â
Sticking with the rap theme, but from a completely different side, independent hip-hop dude Danny Brown was featured on MTV2âs Sucker Free recently, where the host described him as the Detroit rapper with âthe hardest rhymes and the tightest jeansâ. See the clip here.
