In rap, it’s generally accepted that there’s no such thing as keeping it too real. In love, on the other hand, being honest about your feelings and intentions can cripple a relationship before it’s even begun, not to mention getting you slapped. On new promo single When It’s Real, the debut feature from Cadence Weapon, the Canadian hip-hop heavyweight reflects on the under-appreciated dangers of shooting from the hip, showcasing his agile, yet understated flow over Muneshine‘s breezy, retro boardwork. Guest Jarell Perry heightens the record’s throwback vibe, channeling the smoothest of ‘90s R&B in his silky chorus. This joint is unattached to any larger project, but we in The DJBooth will keep you posted on the Edmonton repper’s plans in the weeks and months ahead.
