Cadence Weapon - "Hype Man" video

On “Hype Man,” a track from the Canadian rapper/producer Cadence Weapon’s 2012 album Hope In Dirt City, Cadence adapts the personas of both a star rapper and his hapless, nameless hypeman sidekick. And in the song’s new video, co-directed by Cadence Weapon himself and George Vale, he plays both parts, illustrating a vast divide in the rap power dynamic. Now we know how Spliff Starr feels. Watch it below.

Hope In Dirt City is out now on Upper Class Recordings.
