Afterparty Babies is the second album by Canadian rapper Cadence Weapon, released on March 4, 2008 by Anti-Records and Upper Class Recordings in the United States and Canada and March 10, 2008 by Big Dada in the United Kingdom. After signing with . label Anti- and the re-release of his debut album Breaking Kayfabe, he spent eleven months in his hometown of Edmonton to work on new material for his next record.
Once a creative, ambitious and impacting force, Cadence Weapon delivers what seem to be an overly self-contained effort with Hope In Dirt City. The delightful confusing productions and sounds that made him a promising artist are much gone, leaving this album with next to none creativity. There are definitely some great tracks here, though. But the opposite is also true.
Redirected from Rollie Pemberton). Roland "Rollie" Pemberton, better known by his stage name Cadence Weapon, is a Canadian rapper. He subsequently signed with the American record label ANTI-, releasing the albums Afterparty Babies in 2008 and Hope in Dirt City in 2012. In 2009, Cadence Weapon was named Edmonton's Poet Laureate.
Hope in Dirt City presents some of Pemberton's most complex material to date. Most of the songs still bear the characteristically breakneck rhythms that garnered a nod from the Polaris Music Prize committee back in 2006, but unlike Breaking Kayfabe and Afterparty Babies, this album is swathed with layers of full-bodied instrumentation. Dirt City stands little hope of entertaining the masses (again). But its maker has outdone himself, presenting variety with commendable cohesion and experimenting where others might've chased trends for overdue commercial returns.
