“Laid back at the top of the list/ of what’s the crop of the best/ of what’s poppin’ at the top of the West…”

In a few short years, CANCER RISING (MC’s Judas and Gatsby and DJ Tiles One) has vaulted to the uppermost echelons of the furiously bubbling NW hiphop scene; their outstanding rep as one of The Emerald City’s illest crews is no mere product of hype, either. CR’s last LP Search For The Cure drew massive critical acclaim in their native Seattle- from The Stranger to international tastemaker KEXP, who placed Search at #45 on their best of ’05 list)- and beyond.

They’ve packed Neumo’s in Seattle during the 2007 Capitol Hill Block Party, playing alongside Aesop Rock, Spoon and Girl Talk. They’ve filled the Experience Music Project to capacity, killed it in front of thousands at Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival, and spit rhymes halfway ‘round the globe at Denmark’s world-famous Roskilde Festival(’04)-with such game-changing supertars as The Pixies, Wu-Tang Clan and David Bowie. They’ve rocked with such varied heavyweights as DJ Quik, Matisyahu, Guru of Gangstarr, Murs, The Coup, The Lifesavas, Masta Ase, Mitchy Slick, Saul Williams, Vast Aire, Oh No and 2Mex, - not to mention fellow local breakout sensations Boom Bap Project (Rhymesayers), Grayskul (Rhymesayers), The Saturday Knights (Light In The Attic), and the Blue Scholars (MassLine/Rawkus).

CANCER RISING’S spank-new self-titled EP represents a total reboot- going back to their own Southend Seattle roots- and the dusty, dirty roots of their rock-mindful boom-bap. The raw sound (handled by Tiles, Mr. Hill (Grayskul/Kool Keith/Aesop Rock), and djblesOne- official DJ for South Seattle’s World Champion B-Boy Crew Massive Monkees) and in-your-face energy is some of CR’s best work to date, capturing the souped-up swagger and raucous energy of their notoriously ill live show. Seatown Hiphop down to the socks, CR rep their region the only way they know how- with skills, wit, and originality.

The CR sound has long proved to be surprisingly universal, drawing effusive praise from a wide range of listeners. Sincerity, versatility and skills are their trademark- and has earned them a diverse following, from the die-hard hiphop heads to the spiked-belt contingent and beyond. It’s only right- one thing that everybody appreciates is authenticity… which CANCER RISING represent nothing but.

“This that everyday bidness/ you ain’t live it, you ain’t did it/ pop the disc and come and visit…”

This CD Is SO Good!!!
Wow, you don't hear too much about them but if you listen to KEXP they are on a lot..I see why! Just get it and crank it at your next party. If you like Blue Scholars and other Seattle hip-hop that's a plus!
