On today's episode, I talk to rapper Rollie Pemberton AKA
Cadence Weapon. Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Rollie began
rapping as a teenager, and released his first mixtape Cadence
Weapon Is the Black Hand at the age of 19. He released his first
album Breaking Kayfabe just a little later, and since then he's
released four more albums, all of which were nominated for Polaris
Music Prizes, with his latest Parallel Worlds winning the award in
2021. Rollie was also named as Edmonton's Poet Laureate from 2009
to 2011, and today, the deluxe edition of Parallel Worlds is out
via MNRK Music Group!
