I’m not usually one to front so I’m gonna be honest, I had no clue who Reef The Lost Cauze was when I got the invite for this show. I knew that Loe Pesci was on the list of special guests so I was going to go either way but I figured I do some research. Turns out this Philly based rapper has been in effect since the late 90s and is already rolling 7 albums deep. Similarly to our boy Loe Pesci he got much of his fame from killing the Battle Rap scene so of course he’s mad skilled in lyrical play.
This Sunday night he’ll be rocking the stage with Adlib & DJ Stress at the Cabaret Underworld preceded by special guests: Loe Pesci [who just recently dropped his solo album GOODX2 be sure to cope one], Northern Lights, Casse Croute, Les Michel Chartrands and DJ Manzo. All this for only 12$ !! You can get more info on the FB EVENT.
Here’s a little taste of Reef’s skill
One of the most notable and recognizable samples from the 90s is Beatnuts’s sample of Buddy Baker’s ‘Sign Song’ in their track Off the Books ft. Big Pun & Cuban Link.That ish sticks in your head like crazy glue and their hyper lyricism is one that most bedroom MCs aspire to reach.
This Queen’s native rap duo has been in effect since 1989 rocking stages with la crème de la crème such as the other members of the Native Tongues collective, Common, Big Pun and the Cuban Link. Fortunately for us, MTL promoters have been on their grind getting some great acts to perform in this city and this Friday March 16th 2012 Beatnuts will be performing at Cabaret Underworld.
Code Blue, Calle Cardona and Underground Railroad will be firing up the stage for us and DJ Smokeshop will be on the 1s and 2s setting the mood right not to mention that Local Royalty Loe Pesci is going hosting the night. So get your tickets ASAP cause it’s gonna be an epic show. Tix are 20$ and available at Underworld, City Styles, Off the Hook, Sub V, Moog, High Times and Lunetz.
