K-The-I??? and Assemble the Empire

Recommended

Crown Room (map) Northwest
Wed., Sept. 24, 9 p.m. 2008 21+

The post-millennial stream-of-subconsciousness rhymes of Mush Records' K-the-I??? stylistically sit somewhere between Company Flow co-founder Bigg Jus, the Anti-Pop Consortium, and the lyrical juxtapositions of Lifesavas' Vursatyl—plus all of this is usually atop a digitally-damaged electro-hop bed of nails. His upcoming LP Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow is produced by no less than Mush co-conspirator Thavius Beck, the Los Angeles beat guru and noted remixer who, among other things, contributed heavily to The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust! by Saul Williams (another artist that can be heard in K's broken, emotive flow). Dense as a neutron star, and with a name that is pure hell on copy editors everywhere, K-the-I??? and his jagged vision are not for the faint of heart. LM
