Laying dense lyrics over glitchy, innovative productions, Cadence Weapon is one of the most creative emcees in the rap game. Returning after a five year break from the music business, Cadence Weapon is bouncing back with “My Crew (Wooo),” a Kaytranada-produced heatrock with a hypnotic chorus. “My Crew (Wooo)” mirrors the energy of Montreal’s bustling underground and is sure to fill dancefloors on both sides of the Canadian border.
“’My Crew (Wooo) is an anthem about unapologetically being who you want to be, no matter what anybody else thinks,” says Cadence. “There’s a sense of personal freedom that’s unique to Montreal and ‘My Crew (Woooo)’ is a representation of that feeling. It’s the Brooklyn of Canada. It’s where every artistically minded person goes to freak-out for a few years and find themselves. The music scene in Montreal is very insular, you’re always meeting friends and making music. I met Kaytranada while DJ’ing in Montreal a few years ago and we’ve become friends. ‘My Crew’ is a song about defying the labels that people try to place on artists. Is it underground? Mainstream? Conscious? Trap? Who cares, as long as it sounds dope.”
