“88” is the latest track from the whip-smart Edmonton rapper/producer (and former critic) Cadence Weapon and the first taste from his forthcoming album Hope In Dirty City. As you might surmise from the title, it’s an exercise in golden-age rap nostalgia. But that impression is a little complicated by the fact that is samples “Eight,” a song from Grimes, the most 2012 artist alive. Use the widget below to stream or download the track.
Hope In A Dirty City is out later this year. And check out our new columnist, the great Julianne Escobedo Shepherd, going in on Grimes in the first edition of her new column Deconstructing.
