City Slang: Twiztid tour, Danny Brown on MTV2



Psychopathic RecordsTwiztid and Californian weed-smoking rappers the Kottonmouth Kings will spend April and half of May touring the nation, with Blaze Ya Dead Homie and Big B in tow. The tour hits home on April 20, when they play the Emerald Theatre in Mt. Clemens.

Twiztid’s Monoxide said, “This tour has been 10 years in the making. Come out and witness history as two of America’s biggest indie acts bring the ‘Kaos and Kronik’.”

According to the press release, “Where most rappers celebrate the urban lifestyle with the same old themes and images, Twiztid peels away the gloss and exposes the innards. The demented duo, Monoxide and Jamie Madrox, take the hard edge of theatrical rock-and-roll and temper it with gritty hip-hop to create a musical monstrosity so dangerously real it must be hidden with face paint! These two aren’t casual gangsters, but rather, they have painted personas that allow them to explore the darkest corners of the human psyche, from superhero fantasies to horror film legacies.”

Sticking with the rap theme, but from a completely different side, independent hip-hop dude Danny Brown was featured on MTV2’s Sucker Free recently, where the host described him as the Detroit rapper with “the hardest rhymes and the tightest jeans”. See the clip here.
