Toronto-based rapper, Cadence Weapon, returns with his first release of 2019, “Superhero.” The latest from Cadence is a collaboration with DJ Shub and is released via DJ Shub’s imprint, Shub Records. In classic Cadence Weapon fashion, “Superhero” is a high octane record built around hard hitting bars, intricate flows and an instrumental that is absolutely off the wall.
What makes Cadence Weapon one of the most versatile emcees in the game is his ability navigate traditional rhyme schemes throughout the verse, only to flip the script with experimental bars and hooks that always keep listeners on their toes. With this being the first release Cadence has brought to the table for 2019, I can’t wait to see what else is coming down the pipe line. Be sure to check out, “Superhero” and share your thoughts with us.
“Superhero is a song about how everyone has something that they can use to help other people, a special skill or secret power that exists deep inside of them. For us, that power is music,” Cadence says of the track. “Music can change your mood or make you feel stronger. I tried to infuse this song with the kind of energy that makes you want to lift a car over your head! DJ Shub and I have known each other for awhile and have talked about making some music together for a minute. When I got this beat from him, I wrote the song immediately and sent a finished version back in less than 24 hours.”
