SumKid – Chuck Norris On Drugs
I recently found out about SumKid, a rapper from North Carolina, who’s music sits somewhere between Def jux, Freestyle Fellowship and the Hiero crew. It all makes for some really good listening. Here’s a little history from Sum’s biog –
It’s an amazing time for SumKid Majere (or,Sum) to introduce himself to the world.
Here we have a North Carolina native that’s strange blend of cool Southern charm, paranoia and post-millennium urgency. He’s also one of the most intense songwriters in his class of MC. The trademark style is a perfect mirror of his demeanor; an infectious calm and quiet confidence bursting at the seams with creativity. Although the world is just now beginning to pay attention, Sum has been loping over beats since the mid-90s with his charismatic blend of bluesman, dark poet, drunken party rocker.
He’s performed for the last ten years across the nation with the likes of The GZA, Wu-Tang Clan, Common, Cannibal Ox, Roll Royce, Little Brother, The Dalai Lama, MF Doom, Dead Prez, Saul Williams, Aceyalone, C-Rayz Walz and a number of others. An insistent work ethic and desire to open minds to the world of MC/Songwriting drive him to make music thats experimental, colourful, fundamental and entertaining.
